In-app tips on Uber

Introducing an easy way to say thanks. Riders and Uber Eats customers now have the option to tip right from the app after each trip or delivery. Here's how it works:

  • Tipping is up to you: it’s completely optional but always appreciated
  • Easy and convenient: to ensure a smooth, uninterrupted ride, you can tip drivers after your trip at a time when it’s convenient for you
  • Zero service fees: tips go directly to drivers; Uber does not charge additional service fees on tips
  • Privacy: tipping is associated with your trip, not your name

How it works

Rides

Make sure you have the latest version of the app to provide your driver a tip. You can add a tip after rating your ride. Tips can also be added from your trip history and trip receipt. You have up to 30 days after your trip is completed to give a tip.

Select a preset amount for your tip.

Or enter a custom tip if you’d like to provide a different amount.

Tap Done to send the tip.

How it works

Then select a preset amount for your tip.

Or enter a custom tip if you’d like to provide a different amount.

Tap Submit and Continue to send the tip.
