Uber is enriched with a new option: Uber Rent. It allows you to rent a car in France or abroad from third-party agencies, without leaving the application, thanks to a partnership with CarTrawler. This is reflected in a tab that comes between Uber Eats and two-wheelers. It is possible to compare market prices since Uber references all offers based on the location of users.
This novelty is not surprising since Uber aims to be a multimodal urban transport platform. It makes it possible to complete an already rich panel including VTC, as well as electric scooters and bikes (first under the Jump brand, then Lime). France is the second country after Australia to benefit from Uber Rent.
Uber has suffered from the health crisis and has laid off several thousand employees. But his activity Uber Eats is still growing and took advantage of the situation. The brand is entering the car rental market at the right time, when demand is high during the summer holidays.
