How does Splend Flexi own work?

Splend Flexi own is a subscription service for customers who want to join the rideshare and delivery economy, but who are also looking to own the car at the end of the term. You will need to be an approved rideshare driver and pass all the required criminal and driving history checks. Splend will help you with your application if you're new to rideshare.

You'll have to pay a joining fee and from then on a weekly fee, which will vary based on the car you've chosen. Splend will evaluate your credit history as part of the application. The minimum rental period is 26 weeks, with a minimum of 4 weeks' notice if you'd like to return the car.

What features does Splend Flexi own offer?

  • Use for Uber and own the car. Splend's subscription contracts are specifically tailored to Uber drivers looking to own the vehicle at the end of the subscription.
  • Access to a Splend Member mobile app. The app allows you to track your Uber earnings and driver rating, report accidents and track your kilometres.
  • No lock-in contract. If you're not happy with your car or you've changed your mind about the contract, you can return it within 4 weeks following the minimum rental period.
  • Dedicated account manager. When you sign up with Splend, you will have a dedicated representative. Your rep is there to help make your Uber venture more profitable and deal with any problems you might come across.
