    Keep this guide handy. It will help you communicate the right message about Splend and ultimately help you earn more rewards.

    1. Rideshare basics

    WHO IS SPLEND?
    Splend is an Australian company providing affordable new vehicles for Uber drivers.

    WHAT IS UBER?
    Uber is a mobile app connecting riders with drivers. Based on a peer rating system, drivers and riders give one another a rating at the end of each trip. This keeps the level of service high.

    WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF BEING A RIDESHARE DRIVER?

    • You can work your own hours, and fit your driving in around your lifestyle.
    • You are your own boss.
    • You’ll meet new and interesting people every ride.
    • You can make a good income; some Uber drivers make thousands a week.

    3. Choosing the right plan
    Splend offer two types of vehicle plans across compact, hybrid, SUV and luxury models:

    SPLEND RENT
    Drivers rent a new vehicle weekly at our lowest fee.

    SPLEND RENT-TO-OWN
    Drivers pay a slightly higher weekly fee but own their car after 4 years.

    For current models on offer, head to splend.com.au/plans-pricing

    Why choose Rent-to-Own?
    Splend Rent-to-Own gives you the same flexibility as renting, but with the added benefit of building equity in your vehicle.

    Why choose Rent?
    Splend Rent puts you in a new car with no commitments, and no start-up costs on a lower weekly fee. Perfect if you’re just starting out or driving Uber on and off.
