Earn through our Referral Scheme

Let’s help more people go electric!

We think our all-inclusive and flexible subscriptions are a great way to get people into their first electric car.

But to spread the word, we’re going to need your help and we’re prepared to reward you for it… it’ll only take you a few minutes.

How the elmo referral scheme works

It’s simple – every time you refer a friend to elmo, we’ll give you £50 credit toward your subscription and your friend will get £50 off their first booking, too.

Here are the steps: 

  1. Request your personal referral code from our team by emailing hello@elmodrive.com
  2. They will give you your code to pass on to your friends and family
  3. They sign up to elmo and book a subscription as normal
  4. On the final page of the booking process, they’ll see an “I have a promo code” button – they simply enter your code and get the discount applied before they pay!
  5. The team will then apply the credit to your next invoice. Consider it a thank you from us for spreading the word.

And, yes, in theory, if you refer enough people to elmo you could get a whole month’s worth of your subscription (or more!) reduced to £0. Any more referral credit would be deducted from your following month’s invoice.

Could you end up driving for free?

Who can take part?

We want everyone to be able to play their part in championing the switch to electric cars.

Existing subscribers

Just request your unique code and we’ll get it set up for you.

Anyone else!

Yes, seriously, you could earn money off toward a subscription you haven’t even started yet.

As long as you’ve signed up to our website, we allow you to build up credit in advance toward your car with us.

Then, when you’re ready to book, let us know before you pay and we’ll credit your initial payment – see how much you could save!

1. Credits for non-current subscribers stay on your account for 12 months
2. You must meet our eligibility criteria
3. Referral credits can’t be exchanged for cash or any other cash alternative
4. Referral credits can only be used against a subscription

How to convince your friends

It can be hard to strike the right tone when suggesting that someone should switch to an electric car. The good news is, we have lots of information about electric cars and how to transition to them on our website and blog.

Some good things to remind them about elmo though are:

  1. There’s no deposit
  2. Our subscriptions are flexible with 60-day or 12-month minimum terms
  3. And after that minimum term they can swap cars or stop their subscription with just 30 days’ notice.

Our team have also drafted a message for you to send, if you’re in a hurry!

Hiya! I thought you might be interested in this as a way to try an electric car. I’ve been driving a [Make Model] through elmo and love it. elmo’s a bit like a lease, except I didn’t have to pay a deposit, I can hand it back any time and all the insurance, maintenance, breakdown etc is covered in the monthly price. I can even give you a £50 discount if you use my code: {add your code}. Here’s the website: https://elmodrive.com/ Let me know what you think!

Now you know… go forth and refer!

We love seeing our community expand with more and more people referring their friends and family to drive electric. 

If you have any questions about our referral scheme or want to know how much credit you’ve got, reach out to the team.


How will I be paid £50?

For existing customers, we’ll knock £50 off your next invoice. For anyone else, we’ll build up credit for you until you’re ready to start driving with us.

Is there maximum number of friends I can refer to elmo?

Nope! Keep the referrals coming and we’ll keep rewarding. We’d love to see our customers driving for free through their referrals.

Where does my friend enter the code?

At the end of the booking process, just before they pay, they’ll see an “I have a promo code” box. They enter your code and it’s discounted straight away.
