Is the Rideshare Star Program a car rental?

A Rideshare Star membership is much more flexible and comes with many more benefits than a car rental. Rideshare Star gives members flexible access to a shared fleet of vehicles, regular maintenance, rideshare insurance, roadside assistance, car washes, and more. Stay tuned for new developments throughout 2021—we have an exciting year ahead!
