    Well.. this is one common problem that I used to find. I quite never learnt the art of refusal. Its a great study and needs situation based analysis to arrive at a solution.

    So, whenever I have to say "No", I simple do the following: -

    1. Change the topic of discussion
    2. Counter attack. Ask something in return. (Obviously not money!!!)

    Tell the truth and say, I am sorry that is something I do not feel comforable in doing. I do not want to be without an automobile for any length of time---because an issue may arise concerning my family. If I had two cars it would be different.

    If your insurance allows it, then I would consider lending it a good friend with an excellent driving record. Other than that, I would have to say no but offer to drive them places.

    Just say no!!!! You are not comfortable with others, friends or not driving your car.  If they are a true friend, they will understand and will be fine with it.

    Definitely the insurance. My insurance doesn't cover drivers under 30, so I can always say no to my children. Has worked well, 16 year old daughter got job and bought own car and older son just doesn't ask.
