No more valet key?

In our former 09 535i there was a valet key in the glove box which would allow the car to be parked by the valet while I held onto the keys and main fob. In our new 2013 X3 it seems that nice accessory is gone.

Looks like I can just take out the manual key from the fob so my house keys and such stay w/ me, but, the main transmitter still has to be left w/ the valet.

If the actual transmitter is lost (say by the valet), will the manual key still allow the car to operate?

I'm not missing anything am I?
