HomeDrive from Momentum
December 12, 2016
Do you feel as though you’d like to cut loose a bit but can’t because you need to drive home? With the legal blood alcohol limits in South Africa, you can’t have much more than a single drink before you are legally over the limit. You might want to consider HomeDrive.
So, what do you do instead? Do you catch a taxi? Have a designated driver? Do you leave your car at the bar/ club overnight? If so, how do you get it back the next day?
Having to make these practical arrangements means that there is much less scope for the odd spontaneous celebration. If only there were a service that you could call when you needed it.
A service that would help you out by driving you home and getting your car home as well.
HomeDrive from Momentum
HomeDrive from Momentum offers exactly that service and is available to all car insurance policy holders. All you need to do is to book a driver, and they will arrive at the designated time with a backup driver so that you and your car get home in one piece.

You qualify for six free drives a year. Any trips over and above this will be at a discount rate.
