    On the hunt for a brand-new car for Uber? Splend is here to help. Rent to own means you can put your weekly payments toward owning your car. All while enjoying the flexibility of renting and all the same member benefits available on the Rent plan. Coming soon for on-demand drivers in Canada.

    What is Splend Rent to own?

    Already a favourite of hundreds of our members in Australia and the UK, our Rent to own plan is a relatively new concept in this neck of the woods. Our goal is to bring you an accessible and flexible gateway to car ownership – in other words, an alternative to traditional car finance for Uber drivers.

    Read some of the most frequently asked questions about our Rent to own plan:

    How does Splend’s Rent to own plan work?

    • Put your weekly payments of your flexible rental contract toward owning your car
    • We charge the weekly rental fee one week in advance, so we don’t have to issue credit – therefore, you can have a car even with a bad credit score
    • We don’t take a deposit, just a one-off joining fee which grants access to a growing pool of member benefits
    • Members typically take full ownership of the car after 3-4 years, depending on their model of choice and whether they opt for an early buyout*
    • At the end of the rental period, you will pay a symbolic admin fee for transferring the vehicle’s documents to your name
    • After the minimum rental period, you can cancel the Rent to own contract by providing one month’s notice and paying the small admin fee

    * With 12 months remaining on your agreement you can request to buy out the car by paying the remaining weekly fees.
