GUIDE TO THE OPENSTART PLATFORM
become a member
Create your account with Openstart online. It’s a simple process whereby you fill out information such as your Driving Licence & National Insurance number etc. and only takes 5 minutes!
Choose which car
At the end of the process, you will be asked which vehicle you want to start driving. At the moment, Openstart currently offers 3 different vehicles for UberX drivers. Click on which vehicle you wish to drive and enter the amount of weeks you will need the car.
Collect your vehicle
Once you have been accepted as a driver and your payment towards the deposit and the first weeks rental has been made, you will be notified of a pick-up location. A member of staff will complete a check out of the vehicle with you before they hand you the keys.
Enjoy your car! If you have any queries regarding the vehicle, simply get in contact with the number on your Driver Advice Sheet.
Servicing & maintenance
As an Openstart customer, you will never need to worry about the maintenance of your vehicle. The cost is incorporated in your weekly rental including services, MOTs and even breakdowns, so you are always in safe hands.
