I know I can add a tip now through the app, but how much is enough? I feel bad sometimes just leaving $1 but for a $10 trip, I feel like that is reasonable. Is there a standard? 10%? 20?

    tipping isn't required for uber. they only just made the option to tip available. i dont think you need to unless the driver was amazing

    there isn't a standard you should pay, like how at restaurants they say 18-20% is the norm. it depends. if you had to put a number on it maybe around 10%, which i think is the standard for tipping in taxis

    If your driver goes out of their way to help you, you should reward them. I find it's better to give a good tip when the driver goes above and beyond, even if it's technically 50% of the fare.

    tipping is optional, i never tip. it's already too expensive
