Greetings to all the seniors here. I will need some advices as Iím overwhelmed by all the incentives and the jargons used. Pardon my long post.

Due to family medical issues, we are in need of more income. Both my spouse and I are looking to get a second source of income to cope and tide us over at least a year. So Iím thinking to be a private hire. However, will need to rent as doesnít own a car.

ēBeen reading through, Iím confused as Lumens and Grabrental are both mentioned, which will be less hassle when returning the car (no excessive checks of scratches).

ēOnly can drive part time, 6am to 11am. As my full-time job is 2pm to 2am.

ēCan I add relief drivers if I choose Lumens instead of Grabrental?

ēThinking of getting a hybrid car, as read that the FC is lesser than petrol car, is it true?

ēIf hybrid, itís mentioned that to get Prius instead, I assume itís the MPV, right?

Thanks in advance to any advices given. Please try not to troll with me, as I recently canít tell whether itís troll or not, due to the stress.
Sorry to hear about your family member is sick. If you looking for part time, DON'T, base on your timing, you can't even barely make up the rental. With that short hrs, you can't get any "incentives", even base on fare, if you are lucky to get $20/hr*5=$100 after rental 50-90, you get nothing, GoJek for example, cheap fare, $6 even 10trips in 5hrs only $60. If u lucky hit minimum 10pts get another $20, that's all.

PhD is all about the incentives, and to get them, you need time to earn them. Most PT are viable cause they using own car, no rental commitment s.
