No. You must book and pay for your rental using the website, as it is this process that activates our insurance policy’s coverage of your rental. If an owner suggests that you forgo Drivy’s insurance by paying anywhere other than the website, they are running a risk and making you run one too.
You should never use cash to pay the owner, unless it's directly specified in the Drivy app or website. The first rental payment is always done through Drivy and never in cash, but some adjustments can be made in cash if you and the owner agree. In this case, this will be specified when doing the check out.
