How it works
Easy and convenient
To ensure a smooth, uninterrupted ride, you can tip drivers up to 30 days after your trip at a time when it’s convenient for you.
Zero service fees
Tips go directly to drivers; Uber doesn’t charge service fees on tips.
Tipping is associated with your trip, not your name.
Frequently asked questions
- Do I have to tip?
Tipping is optional. You are free to add a tip, and drivers are free to accept tips.
- How do I leave my driver a tip?
The easiest way to tip your driver is through the app. At the end of your trip, you’ll be prompted to rate your driver. Once you provide a rating, you’ll be given the option to add a tip. Giving cash directly to your driver is also an option.
- Why can't I see an option to add a tip?
You may need to update your app to enable tipping. Additionally, some drivers may opt to not accept tips through the app. Or you might be in a region where in-app tipping isn't available yet. You can always tip your driver in cash if you’d like.
- How much of my tip goes to the driver?
All of it. Uber takes zero fees on tips.
- Can I use a gift card or Uber Cash to tip my driver?
Uber Cash and gift cards will work for tips. However, promotions can’t be used to tip your driver.
- How can I tip for past trips?
After a trip has ended, you have 30 days to add a tip in the app, on riders.uber.com, or from your emailed trip receipt.
- How does tipping work when using Split Fare?
The rider who originally requested the trip will be able to select the tip amount for a trip. If the original requester adds a tip, it won’t be split with the other passengers.
