Deposit varies by vehicle partner. When you rent with Hertz weekly, you’ll pay a refundable $200 security deposit. With Avis, no deposit is required when renting.
- Do I pay insurance when renting a car through a vehicle partner?
All rental offers available through Uber's Vehicle Marketplace come with insurance included. Some partners offer the option to purchase additional insurance.
- How does Uber’s marketplace with rental-car partners work?
We launched Uber's Vehicle Marketplace to help drivers without access to a qualifying car find an opportunity to earn with Uber. We’ve now partnered with Hertz, Avis, and others so that drivers can get a ready-to-go car with low commitment. Once you’ve identified the rental offer that best suits your needs, you’ll complete the booking directly with the vehicle partner. Afterward, return the car based on the vehicle partner’s instructions when it’s time.
- Can you lease or rent a car through Uber?
Our vehicle partners in the US offer eligible drivers the opportunity to rent either by the hour, by the week, or longer. Lease options are not available through the Vehicle Marketplace.
- Where can I rent a car through a vehicle partner?
Uber's vehicle partners offer car rentals to drivers in most major cities across the US. Visit this site or our partnership pages linked above to see if these vehicle partners have rental offers in your city.
- Is there a penalty for canceling my rental car?
Since your rental agreement will be directly with one of our vehicle partners, it’s best to contact the company you rent from directly to understand its cancellation policies.
- Can I use my own rental car to drive with Uber?
Drivers are only allowed to drive rental vehicles that are part of an approved partnership in order to earn with Uber. Driving an unapproved rental car may result in deactivation from the Uber platform. To see currently available and approved rental options through our vehicle partners, visit this site.
- What if approved rental options aren’t available in my area?
If you’re listed as an insured party on someone else's vehicle insurance plan and that car meets Uber’s vehicle requirements, you may use that vehicle to earn with Uber.
¹To get a car with this offer, driver must have been cleared to drive with Uber and be either 21 or 25 years of age, depending on the rental terms set forth by the rental companies. Prices are subject to change or withdrawal at any time and without notice, and may depend on the region or city in which you are located. Several factors may determine the base price of a rental, including the duration of the rental, the car make and model, how far in advance the rental is booked, the time and day of the rental, and its home location. Please visit the rental company’s website for a full description of the terms and conditions applicable to your rental, including whether taxes, fuel, mileage, and other applicable fees are included or excluded. Uber is not responsible for the products or services offered by other companies, or for the terms and conditions (including financial terms) under which those products and services are offered. Drivers renting with a rental partner may qualify for trip surge areas and Uber promotions specific to that rental partner, but—as specified in the Driver app—may not qualify to participate in other promotional offers.
²Gas savings are based on the national gas price (per gallon), the average weekly driver mileage using Uber, the estimated MPG of gas vehicles, vehicle type, and the estimated mile/kWh of EVs. The cost of gas and charging varies by location and personal usage and is subject to price fluctuations.
