Uber Marketplace | Newcastle

The Uber Marketplace is designed to connect new and existing driver-partners with vehicle rental providers that offer products designed for ridesharing.

As cities respond to COVID-19, riders are requesting fewer trips. You can still sign up, but you may experience delays in onboarding and lower trip earnings if you choose to give rides. We are working with marketplace rental companies to ask they support driver-partners by reducing their vehicle costs and providing more flexible rental terms.

Before agreeing to any rental contract, you should closely review the minimum term and handback period as if you want to return your vehicle early, you may be required to pay for those periods.

You should seek independent advice before agreeing to enter into any agreement to consider your own financial position.
