There are many reasons why drivers nowadays are looking to rent or lease a vehicle vs. using their own for rideshare: to avoid putting miles on their car, to be able to drive while their car is in the shop, or because their vehicle doesn’t qualify to drive for Uber/Lyft. But how do you know which rental program is right for you? Today we have a guest post from Steve Johnson, a full time rideshare driver for the last 6 years, on how the different rental programs stack up for drivers.

Whether you are new to driving rideshare or a veteran driver, you may at some point need to use one of the various rental options available to drivers. I’ve found that there are currently three key players in the ‘rideshare rental game’ that work with Uber and Lyft, each of them are very unique in bonuses and cost per week.
I have been driving for Uber and Lyft for almost 6 years now, and I have used all three of these programs. Hertz is probably the most commonly used and has been around the longest. Fair and Hyrecar are two newer options that have both become popular all over the country.
