How does Keyless work?
What are the costs?

SnappCar Keyless can be installed for free. Our standard package costs €29,99 per month. If your car is in one of our active areas, it is possible starting at €9,99. Should you find that the system is not for you, you can have it removed free of charge after 6 months.  In our experience, you easily earn the costs of the subscription because of the increase in rental requests.

We install the system for free at our partner in Amsterdam. We do have a deposit of €80, that you will receive once the system is removed.

Do you want the installation on your doorstep? This is possible, under certain conditions, for free.

When am I elidglible for Keyless?

In order for SnappCar Keyless to function properly, it is important that your car meets the following requirements:

  • Every car needs to have central locks.
  • The software needs to be compatible with the hardware solution. This depends on the model and year of manufacturing.
  • The car should be good condition to prevent any breakdowns. Because we can not check the current state of every car, we use the mileage and year of manufacturing.
  • In consultation with our insurer we exclude certain models.
  • Renters are able to reach your car by foot (so it is not behind a closed gate).
  •  Your car is in a location where an internet connection is possible (so not in an underground parking space).
  •  You have 2 keys for the car.
How and where will the installation take place?

The installation will be performed by our certified partner, Protect Effect. After signing the contract, they will call you to make an appointment for the installation. This can be done on two locations:

  • The default location is at the Protect Effect workshop, in Amsterdam Noord. The install takes about 3 hours, during which you are welcome to have a seat in the waiting room. There are plenty of seats and free WiFi available, or you can borrow a bike and explore the neighbourhood. Installation at the Protect Effect workshop are included in your subscription.
  • For a fee, the installation can also be at a location of your choice (for example at your own house). If you choose this option, the location needs to be dry and warm. Preferably the installation is performed underneath a roof because otherwise in case of rain or snow, the installation can not take place. Costs for installation on your own location are € 49,-
What data is tracked?

With the SnappCar Keyless-technology that is installed in your car, SnappCar has acces to certain details abour your car, including (depending on the model) fuel leve, mileage, GPS-location and general user information about the car. This data will not be shared with third parties, in a way where this data is (or can be) traceable to an individual, unless SnappCar is obligated and/or when there is a well-founded reason for doing so, e.g. suspected misuse or fraudulent activitier. For more information, take a loot at the Keyless Privacy Policy.

How is my car secured?
  • Only you and a renter with an accepted booking are able to open the car

  • SnappCar Keyless uses an immobilizer for extra safety. Even if there is a break-in and the key is taken, the car can not be started.
  • You can see the location of your car at any given time in the SnappCar App, unless an active rental is taking place (to guarantee the pivacy of the renter).
