You’re ready to go online to make deliveries. How do you maximize your time?
We want to help remove some of the guesswork because we know your time is valuable. So, we’re introducing Surge, which shows you where you can earn extra for completing deliveries in busy areas during busy times. For example, if there’s a lunch or dinner rush, or if lots of people are ordering in due to the weather, you can check the Driver app for Surge zones to help you take advantage of high volume areas so you can get the most out of delivering with Uber Eats.
Let’s get into the finer details:
We’re just getting surge out into the world, so if you don’t have it in your location yet, you’ll be notified when it becomes available. If you have additional questions, please feel free to check out our growing list of surge FAQ.
Surge is just one way to earn more money in addition to your base fare. Read below to get more information about other Uber Eats promotions so you can better plan how to get more out of your time delivering. Thank you for all that you do. And good luck out there!
Promotion and incentives recap
|Boost: Announced weekly, boost is an earnings multiplier for base fares during peak hours in a specific area. For instance, if you would normally earn $6 for a delivery and there’s a 1.2x boost, you would get $7.20 for that delivery. Check the Trip Planner for Boost promotions.|
|Quest: Quest promotions let you earn extra money for reaching certain trip goals in a set amount of time. Here’s an example: Make 10 deliveries between 7pm and midnight on Friday, get an extra $20. Check the Trip Planner for quest promotions.|
|Surge: Surge is a real-time opportunity to earn extra money for a delivery when it’s busy. You can still earn quest and boost on top of money earned from a delivery with surge. Check the map in the Driver app to see if there are surge areas.|
