What Is A Valet Key?

Many car owners are unaware of what this key is, and you may have been handed one when you purchased your vehicle. This key is fairly prevalent in expensive cars, and if you own one, you almost certainly have one. However you can also get this key with regular cars sometimes. The role of a valet key differs from that of a spare key. We’ll learn what this key is, what it does, and what its advantages are.

The name valet key is derived from the word valet, who are attendants that assist you in correctly parking your car when you visit a posh restaurant or an event. A valet key has less capabilities than a master key. It usually starts the car and opens the doors, which is necessary for valet services, but it does not open the glove compartment or the trunk. This prevents shady or curious valets from stealing or having access into your belongings.
