Paris car borrowing - Drivy

I borrowed Elodie's car via Drivy to drive from Paris to southern Belgium. It's a French version of RelayRides. My quick synopsis: it worked great, included additional insurance options; the required actual paper paperwork for owner and borrower to sign was funny but effective; appreciated the flexibility on owner's part to charge more/less for return with more/less gas and more/less mileage.

Conclusion: I'd do it again if necessary but with the rental/insurance/gas (expensive)/highway tolls it was more costly than taking a train. With such a competent public transportation system in Paris/France/Europe, it doesn't make much sense to use cars most of the time.
