A little kindness goes a long way

February 22, 2018 / Netherlands

Some drivers deserve a whole lot more than 5 stars. With Compliments, you can let your driver know when they’ve made your day. From knowing their way around town to playing great music – however they’ve done it – if a driver has made your trip extra special, they deserve to be thanked.

As we recognize World Compliment Day on March 1st, what better way to celebrate than by showing some appreciation for the drivers who always go the extra mile?

Share a compliment

  1. You will only be able to send your driver a compliment if you’ve awarded them a 5 star rating – so if you want to personally thank your driver – start by giving them 5 stars!
  2. As soon as you’ve rated your driver with 5 stars – you will see the ‘Give a Compliment’ button appear just below the rating.
  3. You’ll then be presented with a selection of compliment stickers to choose from. Pick as many as you like, and then hit ‘Done’!
  4. Your driver will see the compliment appear on their profile

There are a number of ways you can show your gratitude to an exceptionally special driver, with a selection of 10 stickers to reward them with, each outlining a particularly great quality from your ride.

  • All Star Driver

Each time you thank a driver, you put them in the draw to win once-in-a-lifetime fan experiences, available in select cities.

  • Neat and Tidy

We know how important it is that your driver keeps their car clean. Thank your driver for keeping things shipshape!

  • Excellent Service

Great service comes in many forms. If you feel like your driver has gone above and beyond – make it heard.

  • Amazing Effort

You can thank your driver for doing everything they can to make your journey a great one.

  • Awesome Music

Your driver’s choice in music may not always suit your tastes – but when it does – make sure to let them know!

  • Cool Car

Any car can be a cool car. If you’ve had a driver with some particularly flashy wheels, spread the word!

  • Entertaining Driver

If you feel like you’re stepping out of a comedy club as you exit your Uber, your driver probably deserves a thank you for their entertainment!

  • Expert Navigation

Whether it’s expert local knowledge or simply avoiding the traffic – your driver’s navigation skills can make a huge difference.

  • Great Conversation

Sometimes all it takes to make your day is one great conversation. Let your driver know when you’ve had an unforgettable chat.

  • Great Amenities

If that bottle of water or stick of gum was just what you needed – you can show your appreciation to your driver by thanking them for their amenities.

A Personal Thank You

Of course, sometimes a sticker just isn’t enough. In some instances, a driver will have made you feel so special that you’re inspired to go the extra mile. You can do this by writing a personal note for your driver to truly show your appreciation for making your journey unforgettable.

Above and Beyond

It’s so important to let your drivers know when they’ve made your day, and returning the favour by sending a compliment can in turn make theirs too! As you continue your journey with Uber, make sure you continue to spread kindness along the way!

From us to you, Happy World Compliment Day!
