I got into an accident and now my car has to be in the shop, can we use a rental car, while I wait for my car to get fixed?

Glad you are okay and hope you aren't out of action too long!

Your options may be pretty limited. Using a rental car for U/L violates most rental car agreements. Probably violates a lot of insurance rules too.

Uber and Enterprise have some sort of rental agreement that allows their cars to be used for driving.

HyreCar has cars available to be driven for U/L. You still have to register the car with them though. Not sure how you do that if you are renting someone else's car.

You might want to check with your insurance company too. If they won't pay for it then it may turn out to be too expensive.

I tried that, but could not figure out how to document insurance. By that time however, the rental car's photo was in my profile, and then Uber helpfully made it a Select as a reward for my high rating. Meanwhile, the much nicer car that I owned remained an UberX for some time.
Finally got the useless rental deleted, with assistance.
