Last year this time I started with the rental and it's actually kind of dope... You'd get to $200 on Monday and everything from there is all good. No wear and tear on your own vehicle at all... Can drive those things like a ****ig maniac between passengers and that kinda fun.

Flat tire? Gravy. Oil change? Gravy. Catastrophic engine failure? Gravy. Dirty passengers with food? Slamming doors? Gravy.

The way it is now it'd take 1.5-2 times as long to cover the rental cost... That said... I've missed is because Of the mileage I've put on my personal vehicle (which I know is obviously part of the game).

Better than the leasing bullshit for sure because no exorbitant insurance cost.

I really can't underscore enough how great it feels to have some ******bag slam your door and be able to ride off smiling, not caring that you just drove a bunch of miles in the wrong direction and have to deadhead back because it's not your ride.

I completely agree. For example i had a driver that rents. They drive 1500 miles a week.
About 800 per month. When you have agreements with multiple parties, profit goes down. Also there is insurrance, maintenance, etc.
Except there is no insurance or maintenance.

Gas is your only expense beyond the rental contract.

As I said above, a solid days worth of earnings is for the rental...

... But you don't have to give a **** about the car. The peace of mind of that is almost priceless.

The thing that you all don't know guys is hertz cars don't have liability insurance, so if u did any accident you're F****, no kidding, uber Inssurance covers you only while ubering, and if it's your fault it doesn't cover hertz car which has damage waiver protection for 1000$ Deductible, also I got pulled over once and the cup told me the car had no insurance.
Good luck guys.
Interesting that the cop said that. Did he give you a ticket for not carrying insurance? I wonder if hertz has some sort of bond with the dmv at a large scale or something. I honestly can't remember if they even said anything about insurance at all when picking up cars. It's been a few months since I did so.

I was not talking about us the driver. If you read the person I quoted it might have made more sense.
I had read that but the syntax threw me off, my bad.

I always assumed these were the cars that hertz (or any rental company) would be selling to dealerships as 'certified pre owned' so they were going to be sold off cheap anyways. This way they can make 12,000 a year off each car before selling. These cars aren't worth much more than that at like 40k anyways, if at all.

Just because I drive a rental to shuttle PAX to and fro doesn't mean I don't also own a nice car with full insurance including a rideshare endorsement to limit my liability in case of any accident and hedge against uber/Lyft deductibles regardless of what car I'm driving at the moment.
Ditto, ftr. The rental was kind of the shit if I'm being honest. Road trips with option to uber... Was nice.

Period sex in the back seat without worrying about stains... Wait what?
