You’ll pay a refundable deposit to rent a vehicle through Express Drive. You won’t pay for any other costs upfront when you pick up the vehicle.
Your earnings as a Lyft driver will cover your rental costs. If your earnings don’t cover your rental costs during the Lyft billing week (which starts Monday 5 AM), we’ll charge your default card on file for any remaining amounts the following Tuesday.
Any unpaid rental charges will carry over each week until they’re repaid. Earnings must cover your total outstanding rental costs before you can receive a payout.
After those rental costs are covered, we transfer the rest of your earnings to your bank account.
Credit and debit cards are the only accepted card types for the rental deposit and as your default payment method for Express Drive.
We don’t accept the following as your default payment method:
When you return your vehicle, you’ll receive a full refund of your deposit within 3 weeks as long as rental-related fees, damages, and tolls have been covered.
