Ride-hailing app Uber has partnered with business-to-business travel tech company CarTrawler to launch a vehicle rental service in the UK, the firm has announced.
The service, called ’Uber rent’, which has been tried out in Australia and France, allows people to book and hire a car.
Users can choose from various vehicles before booking, which they can do up to the time of pick-up from a CarTrawler location.
Jamie Heywood, Uber Regional General Manager for Northern and Eastern Europe, said: “Now that travel restrictions are easing and people are venturing out more, we want to help get the country moving safely again.
“Whether it’s public transport, bike and car rentals, car rides or even a boat, users can now make almost any journey on the app, pushing us further towards our goal of ending the need for private car ownership.”
