Uber Adds New Rental Car Feature and More

Ride-hailing app Uber has launched a new feature that will let you rent a car directly from providers like Hertz, Avis and other car rental companies. You can then have the vehicle delivered to your home and picked up when you’re done through the new Valet feature.

“No rental car counters, no lines, no schlepping,” Uber said in the press release. Uber Rent with Valet is launching in Washington, D.C., in May and expanding nationwide this year.

Besides the new car rental option, Uber has also launched several new programs, like Tap a Button, Get a Vaccine, which partners with Walgreens to schedule COVID-19 vaccinations and rides within the app. Those already riding in Ubers can now use Uber Pick Up to grab their food on the go. With Pickup and Go, you’ll see restaurants and merchants near your destination while you’re en route, so you can easily place an order for pickup.

Additionally, launching in May, the Savings Hub will showcase every eligible offer and discount available. You can also track progress towards future discounts through restaurant loyalty programs.

  1. This is new business model of Uber instead of aggregator for cab drivers, now it is positing itself as aggregator of rental companies and that without owning any car!! Light on Capex!
