LeasePlan’s Uber proposition consists of a broad package of services, from repairs and maintenance to insurance ? enabling Uber drivers to focus on their core business.

Ridesharing allows people across the world to get a ride in a safe, affordable and reliable way. This new development has a major impact on improving mobility worldwide.

Uber, active in over 100 cities in Europe, is a driving force behind this trend and has identified LeasePlan as a provider of lease vehicles to drivers who wish to access economic opportunities via the Uber app.

In Portugal, hundreds of drivers using the Uber app already lease a LeasePlan vehicle. In France and the Netherlands LeasePlan and Uber have recently started to cooperate. Over the course of 2017, partner-drivers across 23 countries in Europe will also be able to benefit from LeasePlan’s hassle-free mobility solutions.
