Uber is a rideshare service that allows drivers the freedom to drive whenever they want on their own schedules. This allows great flexibility in shifts and locations. The drivers primarily use their own vehicles for transportation and make sure that passengers are safe and enjoy the rides by providing amenities like phone chargers and music choices. Some individuals who wish to drive for Uber for extra income or to sustain a living do not have vehicles, though. As a result, Uber has partnered with various rental car companies to provide car rentals to these people. One such company is Fair
, which is available to Uber drivers in Atlanta, GA; the Inland Empire, CA; Los Angeles, CA; Orange County, CA; Sacramento, CA; San Diego, CA; and the San Francisco Bay Area, CA
. If you have questions about any accidents or laws regarding Uber and Fair rental cars
, contact our law firm, the Downtown LA Law Group
, for more assistance.
How to Sign Up for Fair
If you wish to sign up for Fair, you will first need to be an Uber driver
. You can become an Uber driver by signing up through the app and undergoing a background check
, as well as having your car and credit information verified. You can then download the Fair app, which allows you to choose a vehicle that suits your driving needs, and get right on the road to earn with Uber.
In order to rent a vehicle from Fair
, you must be 21 years old or older and have your own credit card or debit card with which to pay for the rentals. You do not have to undergo a credit check to rent a vehicle.
Get started today by calling (888) 649-7166.
Your contract allows you to rent a vehicle for 7 days minimum at a time. You can choose to return the car at any point before the 7 days are up but you will still be charged for the full week. If you do not return the vehicle, then the contract will auto-renew. This can happen 3 times, resulting in a 28-day max rental, at which point you must sign a new contract.

Costs of Fair Rental Vehicles
Fair cars can be rented for $195 per week with a matching $195 security deposit that can be reimbursed
. The $195 covers insurance, unlimited miles for the car, 24/7 roadside assistance, vehicle maintenance, and renewal options on a weekly basis.
There are certain incentives that Uber offers to its drivers for using Fair. If an Uber driver completes 75 trips, the driver will receive $80 in credit. If the driver completes 90 trips, he will receive $185 in credit, which was previously enough to fully cover the weekly costs of the car before the $10 increase. Finally, if 125 trips are completed, Uber will credit drivers $240, which is an immediate $45 in profit.
Essentially, it is most beneficial to complete 125 trips, which comes out to just under 18 per day, in order to get the highest reward. You only need to complete around 13 trips per day to pay off the weekly fees.
Routine maintenance carried out by Fair covers oil changes, oil filter changes, multi-point inspections, tire pressure investigations, tire rotations, and fluid topping off as needed. It is useful to go to the mechanic for these inspections on a monthly basis if you are renting the vehicle long-term. You are still responsible for putting gas in the car.
Fair Insurance Coverage
Insurance is troublesome when you are renting a vehicle. Many times, the rental company will provide its own insurance to drivers to protect them in case of accidents, but this coverage essentially only covers damage to the car and offers $50,000 in liability to third parties
, as well as state minimums for any damages caused by uninsured or underinsured motorists.

While you are using the app, though, Uber’s insurance will take over. This will be ine effect when you have the app on and have not yet taken a passenger; you will be covered for essentially the same amounts. When a request is granted and you have passengers in the car, though, the policy changes to $1,000,000 in liability, $250,000 in uninsured/underinsured damages
, and more.

What to do in a Fair Uber accident
If you are in an accident while driving a Fair rental car
, you could potentially sue for damages and losses. The expenses you racked p from the incident can cause you to receive a fair amount of compensation for your injuries. If an accident happens, you should follow these steps:
Go to the hospital or call the paramedics for treatment
, even if you feel you were not injured, as you may have hidden injuries that are concealed by adrenaline. It is beneficial to your claim because the longer you wait, the more likely it is that the insurance company will reject your demand. You should not try to avoid medical treatment. Make sure to keep copies of medical notes and any receipts given to you by the hospital.
Then, you should take pictures of the injuries you suffered and what kind of damages happened to the rental car
. This concrete evidence will be important for your claim. It will show the extent of the damages and can give the insurance agent a general idea of what the value may be
There may have been eyewitnesses or passengers nearby who saw the accident happen. You can interview them and write down their statements and testimonies to add to your claim.
You will then have to file an incident report with Uber and with Fair. You’ll likely need to return the car for repairs, as well, especially if you have hit the $1,000 deductible. You can file a report through each app on your phone.
It will serve you greatly to get the contact information and insurance details of whoever hit you in the accident so you can submit them, if applicable. Otherwise, you will have to pursue other damages.
Finally, it is highly recommended that you reach out to a skilled lawyer
to help you with your case. You may not know the first thing about filing a claim with Fair or how to proceed f you were injured in an accident. Our team of expert attorneys will do all we can to bring you the maximum compensation available for the case.

Deadline to Sue for an Uber or Fair Accident
If you were involved in an accident with an Uber or Fair vehicle
, you will have 2 years from the date of the injury to take legal action against the necessary party. This will allow you ample time to collect your evidence and create a package to be sent to the insurance company. You will also be able to write a demand letter in that time. If you do not file a claim within the two year limit, you will be barred from doing so and will not be able to acquire any compensation in the future.
There are a few exceptions to the statute of limitations. For one, if you were underage at the time of the incident, you will be unable to sue legally and will have to wait until you turn 18 years old; therefore, the statute begins at 18 as well. You also do not have to abide by the statute of limitations if you were left physically or mentally incapacitated after the incident, and you can wait until you return to health. Further, if the defendant leaves the state, the statute of limitations will be suspended, and you can thus wait until he returns before the time limit begins to count down again.
