Thats what valet mode is for. Why on earth would you leave your 405 for someone else to drive up the M60.

If you can't afford airport parking or a taxi stay at home. 4.4 TDV8 SE

Valet mode would not prevent this happening at all.

All Valet mode does is lock the loadspace and glove box, there's no speed limiters or geofencing technology there.

You give them your keys and they can do whatever they like with your car, hence I've never ever done meet and greet or valet parking. THE INVENTOR OF THE TERM "FULL-FAT RANGE ROVER" :

My apologies - thought it also restricted performance. just re-read the HB and yes valet mode just locks things. 4.4 TDV8 SE

England 2012 Range Rover Vogue TDV8 Santorini Black

To be fair, they used a non-approved operator, which is asking for trouble. Of course that doesn't excuse what happened, but Gatwick for example has a list of approved operators. I used one such recently (I know, I know, but I was persuaded by my mates who assured me it would be fine) and they drove the car 28 miles and left toenail clippings on the car's floor! But, they didn't crash it or scratch it, and they gave us a full refund.
But, in general I agree and wouldn't use meet & greet ever again.
