Tipping

Explore the app

Another way to say thanks

Whether a driver made you laugh, charged your phone, or delivered 20 late-night pizzas, you may feel like thanking them beyond a 5-star rating. Tipping is another way to thank drivers for going the extra mile and providing a great experience.

Why it's helpful

Show your appreciation

Tipping is an easy way to recognize drivers for their excellent work, and it's always optional.

Enjoy the ease of tipping

Don’t have time to tip in real time? No problem—you can tip drivers when it’s convenient for you. The option is also available from your receipt or from your trip history.

Thank drivers on your terms

Whether it’s a verbal “Thank you,” a 5-star rating, or a $5 tip, there are many ways to express your gratitude. Pick what works for you.

How it works

Add a tip

Tap Done.

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 tip my driver?

    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 via the app. You can always tip your driver in cash if you would like. You may also be in a region where in-app tipping isn't available yet.

  • How much of my tip goes to the driver versus Uber?

    Uber takes zero fees on tips.

  • Can I use credits or a gift card to tip a driver?

    Credits and gift cards will all work for tips. However, promotions cannot be used to tip your driver.
