How does Nissan Switch work?
Members use the Nissan Switch app to request their next vehicle, including when and where they would like the next vehicle for use delivered. A concierge will deliver the fresh vehicle, transfer everything over to that vehicle, and ensure you’re all set to go. Our goal is to ensure you have the perfect car for any occasion.
What is included in a Nissan Switch subscription?
Every Nissan Switch subscription includes rights to vehicle use, insurance coverage (subject to a deductible), and concierge delivered vehicle switches.

Nissan takes care of all maintenance and repairs so you can focus on driving. There is no limit as to how many switches a customer can execute each month.

How does insurance work?
All vehicles provided by Nissan Switch are fully insured on a fleet insurance policy held by Nissan. All approved drivers are covered by the fleet insurance policy. Coverage highlights: Collision and Comprehensive coverage subject to a $1000 deductible, $300,000 liability coverage (combined single limit), $300,000 uninsured motorist (combined). $2,000 medical payments to offset any out of pocket or deductible costs Member will be responsible for the deductible, or any losses less than $1000. If a third party is at fault the deductible is typically waived, but if the member is at fault or other damage occurs while the vehicle is in their possession (hail, flood, etc) the member would be responsible
Note: GT-R deductible will be $5000
How long can I keep a vehicle?
You may keep any vehicle up to 2,000 miles or 180 days, whichever comes first (with the exception of GT-R, which is a 7 day maximum) as long as your membership is renewed each month. If you cancel your subscription, Nissan will retrieve the vehicle once your subscription expires. Once a vehicle has reached 2,000 miles or you’ve had the vehicle for 180 days, we will switch you into the next vehicle you select. This way, you will get to experience the several vehicles and vehicle features the Nissan brand has to offer.
Occasionally, when a vehicle has been with a member for many weeks, we might need to ask for it back so that we can do routine tasks like preventive maintenance. However, if you choose, we will do our best to switch you into another vehicle that is similar to the one you were using – provided that vehicle is currently available for use.
How new are the vehicles?
Nissan Switch vehicles are the current or prior model year. Each vehicle is detailed before and after it ever goes to a member.

Is there a mileage or switch limit per month?
There is no mileage limit per month. However, once you’ve driven a single vehicle for up to 2,000 miles or six months (whichever is earlier), you will be required to switch into a different vehicle so that routine maintenance can be done on the current vehicle. We always want to ensure that Nissan Switch members are in the perfect vehicle for their needs, so there is no limit on the number of switches each month.
Can anyone else drive the vehicle?
Yes, however eligible drivers must be registered as Additional Drivers and added to the member’s account.
Can I use the vehicle for ride hailing/sharing like Uber and Lyft?
No, all vehicles are meant for personal use only. Use of any Switch vehicles for ride hailing/sharing may cause immediate expiration of your Switch subscription with no refund of subscription fees.
Are members responsible for their Nissan Switch vehicle?
Yes, we expect our members to take care of Nissan Switch vehicles as if they owned them. There is a non-smoking policy and there will be a cleaning fee associated if we have deemed that a customer has smoked on the inside of one of the vehicles or if the vehicle is deemed to be unreasonably dirty. Please drive responsibly, keep your vehicle clean, and let us know of any minor dings or spills via the Nissan Switch app.
