Premium rides in luxury vehicles. Qualified drivers will be able to accept Uber Premium trips.
In order to be eligible for Uber Premium, driver-partners must:
Have completed 20 trips or more.
Keep a star rating of 4.6 or higher.
Drive a car that’s 6 years old or less (2013 model or newer as of 2019) and listed as eligible.
We know that riders often choose to take Uber Premium when they are looking for a high quality service, so we’ve developed an exclusive in-app feature - Rider Preferences - to help you deliver just that.
When a rider requests an Uber Premium trip, they will be able to indicate certain preferences, which will be shown in your Driver app when you arrive at their pickup location.
Whether your rider prefers a warm or cool climate.
Whether your rider needs to focus or is free to chat.
If your rider is traveling with luggage, they can notify you while you’re en route to their pickup location so you have the option to help when you arrive.
Uber Premium will also have slightly extended paid wait and cancellation times compared to UberX.
With Uber Premium, riders expect a premium experience.
The time/distance rates and base fare for Uber Premium are approximately 1.8 times more than the equivalent rates for UberX in your city, except for Sydney where they are approximately 2 times more than the equivalent rates for UberX. You can find the full fare breakdown by visiting the Fare Estimator.
The service fee that applies to you for UberX trips in your city will also apply to your trips on Uber Premium.
