Thanks for highlighting, my bad on wrong info, this company can do 3months for the Sienta Hydrid, but rental increased to $540/WK.

Yes, for newbies better try out first, go for 1week or 1mth petrol car to test out.

The one go fleet offering low excess is focus rental, but 1yr contract, Honda Freed $93/day. Even after rebate, $72/day. Remember you need to pay this on your off day Better start with those $35-50 per day petrol car first.

Why fleet partner, cause renting from them allows you to enjoy rental rebates, that's all, got nothing to do with "safer" renting nor driving platforms (please note that all vehicle can use all platforms). Why 3rd party, usually they can offer very competitive prices and more flexible terms, like lower deposit, shorter term of contract,etc.

i would say min 5 wk plan for a start...see u like it or not
petrol or hybrid , grab or gj, etc etc only u urself can answer the question.....nvr try nvr know

Ya, there's no free lunch, you have to "earn" your rental rebate, for Grab 100 trips for 6% of your weekly fare(newbie start from Emerald tier) and Gojek 130pts for a fixed $150 rebate.

That's why fares rate for grab is very important, like 1 of the Bro here shown recently that his weekly fares hitting only around 1.2k, meaning you only can get roughly $72 rebate. But on the bright side, when you on high tier DT, you will get 8% rebate, and when you get a good weekly fares, it's possible to hit $200+ rebates. That's almost enuff to cover your weekly rental if you are on cheaper petrol car rental.

cannot agreed more!!!!!!!

Actually do you all make it a point to drive everyday??? Since rentals still paying to car rental company even if you choose to take a rest day. I can imagine it's not easy job behind the wheels, especially you get demanding riders, limiting hydration so won't need to go toilet often, irregular meals. If course there will likely be pros like freedom of being "self employed", flexible working hours, "owning" a personal vehicle.

Curious. Would you guys probably need to spend at least 5 hours a day to break even rental and other cost??

Spend long hours on the road will also bring unquantify side effect such as sciatica nerve problem. This one got money also difficult to cure fully.

Why cannot compare? Of cos must compare cos if want to drive for living taxi is a better route. At least no 20% comm and last i heard the rental went down already. My dad days is already $108 for a old sonata. Now i heard $70+ also have.

End of the day, is earn enough to cover rental and take back $ to family. Need to set a realistic value you wana achieve each day.... There are some days bad, no customer then take a break and go back earlier to be with family. Some days are good, in this situation either you also go back earlier or take a few more customers to cover back those bad days.

This is from the mouth of a full time taxi driver...
"Customer can never be fetch finish one. Leave it for another day, Long term strategy"

I see many young drivers chiong chiong.... chiong until have to report OP or worst hang up the keys at later stage. :(

Its common with drivers... For sactica, sometimes the disc pressing the nerve will pop back and in to cause pain.

Surgery is an option but taking painkillers daily oso no good.
