That’s sorta vague on the longer rides. Is it 10-20% or $5-10?
I’ve been tipping 20% on the airport rides. The other day it was $120 and I ended up $24. Give me an honest feedback. Am I overtipping on those longer trips?
I did think $144 for an UberX on a 45 minute drive was just way too much. (Albeit $15 of it being for the George Washington Bridge toll.)
Yeah, if you are in an urban area, 8-10AM can be a high-traffic time. That can trigger an increased fare, higher than usual.
I recently took an UberX from Manhattan to NJ, and it was $100 at 7AM. Then on the way back at 1PM, it was $30. (Same distance...and weirdly, not that big of a difference in traffic.) Go figure.
You may want to consider ordering black car (limo) services. They guarantee a ride and they cost a bit more. I think there is place for personalized services. There is a reason taxis went extinct but not limos and airport transfers.
Here's an argument for Uber drivers being safer. They are cautious because they drive their own cars, while as taxi drivers don't care about the car they drive.
Taxi drivers may pull moves that Uber drivers may not. Taxi drivers drive a beat up car they rent from a company, while Uber drivers are driving their own cars.
If you schedule your ride, they know you want it and absolutely need it, so the price will naturally be higher.
I disagree with you and the writer. You have to consider two things:
- Competition - If a restaurant does not participate in UberEats, your competitors will. Consumers will continue to shift away, and eventually forget who you are. (Think branding and advertising.)
- Fast Foods - We aren't all talking about high end niche restaurants here. Think McDonalds and Chipotle. In this high-volume market, these stores want people to think of them as they go through the day. The next time those people drive or walk by that McDonald's, they will stop in.
Oh of course! Sorry.
Yeah, they just stop at random Interstate rest areas, right? I don’t think that has ever changed. And that’s a good call. That’s where drivers spend the nights. At 24/7 rest areas. There’s bathroom, McDonalds, vending machines and all that. Makes total sense.
They sleep in the “cab” in the back. Those semi trucks have a small room they can sleep in with bed, TV and all that.
anyone know whatever happened to this?
I don't understand the real scam here.
Can't this scam just work if a person claims to pay in cash but upon arriving they just take off? I mean, "runners" has been the oldest scams in taxi history.
"Every someone" sounds cool.
That's nuts. The driver is supposed to be prepared to give you a ride, and having fuel seems to be the absolute minimum preparation he should do.
I mean, seriously. This driver has some re-prioritization to do if he shows up with an empty gas.
Creepy "Have you ever been in an Mclaren before?"
Not just prison guards. all the government employees.
I would go ape mad, if I gave you a chunky change and later saw a fee from you on the CC.
How's that different than a normal parking lot? I guess fences and security guide? Maybe a bathroom?
It reminds me of a trailer park or a campsite.
...or more ignorant (and shameless) people are driving Ubers?
It's probably because Uber isn't serious about making money off of this credit card. I am sure they were able to negotiate or keep their benefits minimum so they can afford to give away these benefits. They aren't a credit card company, that's why.
