How it works
Easy and convenient
To ensure a smooth, uninterrupted ride, you can tip drivers up to 30 days after your trip at a time when it’s convenient for you.
Zero service fees
Tips go directly to drivers; Uber doesn’t charge service fees on tips.
Tipping is associated with your trip, not your name.

You are free to tip and drivers are free to accept tips at any time. Giving cash directly to your driver is always an option.
Where available, you may also tip through the app, on riders.uber.com, and from your emailed trip receipt.
- Why can’t I see an option to add a tip?

- How does tipping work when using Split Fare?

Before you can provide a tip in the app, you will first need to rate your driver. If you tip directly from the trip receipt, you will not be prompted to rate the trip.

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