Uber generally offers Uber X Drivers incentives. This changes weekly, so stay tuned. Uber offers an hourly incentive that is simply – if you fulfill the criteria that Uber sets, Uber will pay you a minimum pay per hour.
Uber’s hourly guarantee incentive is generally 35-36 dollars per hour on weekday mornings from 6 am to 10 am and 26-27 dollars per hour from 5 pm to 8 pm on Mondays to Thursdays. Friday evenings are from 29-31 dollars and there even is a Friday 11 pm to 1 am incentive. Saturdays and Sundays have incentives from 10 am
There are three criteria to get the incentive
1. Maintain 1.5 trips per hour with a minimum of 2 hours on the road
2. Accept at last 80% of total trip requests within the week
3. Complete at least 65% of total trip requests within the week.
Uber wants its Drivers to drive during the peak hours of each week and is willing to make it worth your while to be on the road driving at that time.
How do incentives work?
If you drive for 3 hours on a Monday morning, and you qualify for the incentive, you will earn a minimum of $108. If your fares are $90, Uber will TOP-up the difference to $108. However, if you have earned say $120, there will be no TOP-up. Please note that these numbers are before the Uber commission of 20% for Uber X cars.
Please note again that you have to meet all the requirements above to qualify for Uber’s incentive. Find out more about McQueen’s Uber Car Rental and Grab Car Rentals today.
