Do you tip the Uber driver?

I don't. The app doesn't have a place to tip the driver. And I don't want to carry out a transaction with the driver. It kinda defeats the purpose of getting an Uber.

What about you guys?

Re: Do you tip the Uber driver?

I don't. Don't think drivers care too much about it as opposed to regular taxi drivers such as yellow cab etc.

Re: Do you tip the Uber driver?

Nope I don't - The whole reason i want to use a service like uber is - i do not want to interact with those assole cabbies (specially in india) talk to the app - take me where it tells you - and get paid from my ewallet to your co -

zero talking haggling - interaction - and no tip either.

Re: Do you tip the Uber driver?

Looks like Uber checked out this thread. They are introducing tipping

Re: Do you tip the Uber driver?

Actually Uber is a huge scam.. they aren't really any better than regular cab service. In fact Uber cabbies often are not professionals, generally won't help with luggage to earn a bigger tip. Uber isn't all that much cheaper than any other cab service, may be a couple dollars here and there, in fact costlier often.. just like Amazon if you're hooked on to it once you won't compare fare with other services. The only USP of Uber is tracking on app.. which many competitors have as well.

When Uber cab comes I have to keep looking where is that Honda SUV, cabs can be recognized with yellow or black or what color you have.

Another thing is that Uber is available worldwide. You do not have to change your app. It will work in India, US, UK etc.

Re: Do you tip the Uber driver?

I found it cheaper than regular taxis. I've not had any bad experience with uber so far.

In India I used another app called Ola or something.

It's easier for drivers to fool a company running with 2 admin personnel in a studio apartment style office.. at least until 2015 such was the case. Many countries have banned Uber.
