Renting vs. Owning

When driving for delivery and rideshare services, there are different options if you do not have a qualifying rideshare vehicle or you do not want to use your car. KINTO has many vehicle options to meet your needs, and we are here to break down what could work for you:

Why rent?

Think of the wear and tear that would accumulate in and on your car and the extra miles that will affect the resale value. You will also need to purchase rideshare auto insurance if you use your own car. Plus, there are unexpected repair and maintenance service costs. If there is a breakdown, you do not want to get stranded, so you would most likely purchase a roadside assistance plan. Don’t forget car annual registration fees and inspection costs. But renting a car from KINTO would eliminate those additional costs and concerns.

KINTO Share rates include vehicle insurance, 24/7 roadside assistance, and maintenance. Plus, 24/7 customer support.

Why select Weekly Rentals?

Affordable weekly rentals are great because you do not need to go back and forth to pick up your car when you want to drive for Uber or delivery; it’s right in your driveway. You can have a very flexible schedule and start your shift at your convenience. KINTO offers a variety of weekly cars, including compact and mid-size cars, hatchbacks, SUVs, vans, hybrids, and plug-ins.

Hybrid and hybrid plug-in rentals are a great option from a fuel efficiency and eco-friendly perspective. Plus, for Uber drivers, hybrid vehicles are Uber Green eligible. Eligible drivers of low-emission vehicles automatically get $0.50 extra directly from riders in each Uber Green trip.*

Properly cleaned and sanitized vehicles can help your rideshare tips and ratings and give you and your customers peace of mind.

KINTO Share weekly program is affordable and available in the Southern California area, and Dallas and Houston, Texas areas. We offer a variety of cars in our fleet, including hybrids that are Uber Green eligible, and the ability to have a flexible schedule.

What about renting for less than a week?

Sometimes, you need a car for a few hours or days; maybe you want to test out the waters of becoming an Uber or delivery driver. Our custom reservation in the Dallas area option allows you to reserve a car for as little as two hours and up to 28 days. Many drivers do not want the responsibility or have the space to have a car for a whole week, so this is a great option to support that need.

Custom reservation vehicles are all newer with model years starting at 2021, and rates starting at $9 per hour + tax or $71 per day + tax . Reservations are available on the KINTO Share app. We also have 24/7 customer support; if you need help or have any questions, email us at or text us at (629) 20-KINTO.

*Driving with Uber Green is available in select cities and busy areas from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. Please check the Uber Driver app for more information on availability and offer restrictions.
