How Driving Works

Express Drive offers a Lyft-exclusive weekly rate on cars rented from partners like Hertz and Flexdrive. Lyft matches drivers with passengers who request rides through our app. When you rent through Express Drive, you can offset weekly costs by giving Lyft rides.

Drive More, Pay Less

Express Drive Rental Rewards are designed to make your rental more affordable. If you give a certain number of Lyft rides, some or all of your rental costs can be covered by Rental Rewards.
