5 Ways to Make More Money Driving for Uber

UBER DRIVER LAWYER

1. LOG IN TO THE PASSENGER APP

The passenger app will show you where all the Ubers are – if there is too much competition where you are, you can drive to another location.

2. LOG OUT AND BACK IN FOR INCREASE SURGE FARE

Surge fares are calculated based on driver availability.  At a likely time for a surge (such as closing time for bars in your area) first log out (to reduce availability) and then back in to catch a large surge.

3. PROVIDE WATER AND SNACKS FOR PASSENGERS

Now that the Uber app allows passengers to tip, it’s even more worthwhile to make them comfortable.  The passengers will appreciate the effort, even if they decline the offer.

4. KEEP YOUR CAR CLEAN AND IN PERFECT REPAIR

This will also increase tips and ratings.  Ubers standards for what cars are allowable has gone down, but you can make your car stand above the crowd.

5. BE FRIENDLY AND READY TO OFFER CONVERSATION

Believe it or not, but some passengers will give their Uber driver a low rating for a perfectly good ride just because they didn’t engage in conversation.  Uber passengers have the expectation of entertainment along with their ride, so if you can play this game you will be rewarded with great ratings and tips.
