- Do I need my own car?
If you want to drive with Uber, third-party vehicle providers give you options to start driving and earning even if you don't have a car. Explore the Uber Marketplace to see what's available. Please note that vehicle options may vary by city.
- Are trips insured?
Yes, if an accident or injury occurs on an UberX or Uber Assist trip anywhere in New Zealand, the Accident Compensation Corporation (ACC) provides coverage, regardless of fault. What's more, Uber also provides driver-partners with contingent liability coverage that works with your personal car insurance policy to help ensure that other road users are protected in the event of an accident.
Certain requirements and features vary by country, region and city.
