    Uber doesn’t have its own fleet. Drivers use their own cars. But not everyone has a car that meets all of Uber’s requirements. That’s why Uber works together with local car providers to offer payment plans that suit an on-demand driver’s needs.

    At Splend, we specialise in providing cars as well as dedicated support, so that our members not only have an Uber-ready car, but all the means to be successful on the road from day one.
