You help keep communities moving
We're finding new ways to support you.
Drivers and delivery people like you are working hard to keep communities running. You deserve strong support—from your communities, from your government, and from Uber. We’re finding new ways to increase the support you receive, including working with government officials to help you get access to financial relief for lost earnings you may be eligible for, and providing you with access to more opportunities to earn.
You can pick a car from our vehicle partners with low or no upfront costs and no long-term contracts, so you can return it when you're ready.¹
By the hour or week
If your car is unavailable, choose one that comes with insurance, unlimited mileage, basic maintenance, and/or other possible options.¹
To rent a car from one of our vehicle solutions partners to earn with Uber, you’ll first need to sign up to drive with Uber. Next, you can visit this site to see which vehicle offers are available in your city. Once you’ve selected the option that best suits your needs, follow the vehicle partner’s instructions to reserve and pick up your rental car.
Typically, the rental cost will vary depending on how long you want to keep the car. To find an affordable car to rent by the hour, the week, or longer and more information about pricing through one of our vehicle partners, go to this site.
We launched our Vehicle Marketplace program many years ago to help drivers without access to a qualifying car find an opportunity to earn with Uber. We’ve now partnered with Getaround, Hertz, Avis, and others so that drivers can get a ready-to-go car at a 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.
No. But we initially started the Vehicle Marketplace program to help drivers without a qualifying vehicle have an opportunity to earn with Uber. Since its launch, the offers from our vehicle partners have evolved to help suit the needs of drivers. These vehicle partners in the US offer eligible drivers the opportunity to rent either by the hour, the week, or longer.
The amount of money you pay upfront depends on the vehicle partner from which you rent. When you rent with Hertz weekly, you’ll pay a refundable $200 security deposit. With Getaround, no deposit is required when renting.
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.
All rental offers come with either insurance or the option to purchase insurance. Depending on which rental offers are available in your city, you can choose one that includes insurance.
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.
If there are no vehicle partner options available in your area, you may try to rent through Maven Gig to drive with Uber (if available). Please note: it’s your responsibility to make sure that the vehicle and necessary documents meet your local requirements.
Alternatively, 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.
Guarantee offer terms (Applies only in locations where guarantee offers are available): This is a promotional offer and is not a promise or guarantee of future earnings. This offer is available only to new drivers on the Uber app who (i) have never previously signed up to drive or deliver with Uber; (ii) receive this offer directly from Uber and see it in the guarantee tracker of the Uber Driver app; (iii) are cleared to drive with Uber; and (iv) complete the number of trips displayed in the guarantee tracker in the city where they signed up to drive within 90 days of signing up. Offer terms such as number of trips and reward amount may vary by location. The guarantee offer that you see in the app replaces any guarantee amounts Uber previously offered you.
Earnings from your fares and surge (after service fees and certain charges are deducted, such as city or local government charges) are included toward your guarantee offer amount; any tips and/ or other incentives you make are on top of that amount. If you complete the required number of trips within 90 days of signup and you earn less than the guarantee offer amount, then you’ll receive the difference.
For example, if your guarantee offer amount is $1,000 and you earn $800 in fares, an additional $100 in tips, and an additional $50 in promotions (for a total of $950), you would receive an additional $200 because your fares didn’t meet the guarantee offer amount.
Any offer payment due will be added to your account after you complete the required trips. Each completed pickup and dropoff on UberPool will count as one trip toward your minimum trip requirement. Each required trip must be with a unique rider. Canceled trips do not count. This offer is valid only for those who meet the eligibility requirements associated with this offer. Uber reserves the right to withhold or deduct offer payments that it determines or believes were in error, fraudulent, illegal, or in violation of the driver terms or these terms. Limited-time offer. Offer and terms are subject to change.
¹Uber 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 except as specified in the Driver app, may not qualify to participate in other promotional offers.
²Excludes taxes, gas, and other applicable fees.
