I think you can use the valet key to drive a short distance, but after that, probably not. You still need some proper keys, so make sure you get at least 2-3 and keep one in the house in case you loose the other. No sure what insurance you are being asked to pay, but I would skip it.

In the past I thought valet keys were strictly to drive the car. Their purpose was not to allow access to a locked glove or trunk. Have things changed?
