    Why are you still chasing surges then? You should know better by now...:)

    Let's see. With Uber's min. fare net to driver that would net you a grand total of $14,400 before costs. Congratulations! ?

    I'm in London , around 50.000 miles . I'm just used to it , that's the only to make the proper money surge price , but today it wasn't my day I wasted 4 hours of my time chasing it :(

    Ok, here is the big question. Is it worth it? After putting 50,000 miles on your vehicle have you made a large enough profit to cover the decrease in value?

    I think in London they actually get a decent pay rate and they are forced to obtain legal insurance as well. Imagine that? Don't know why he'd have to chase surge when getting fair pay either.

    have you achieved your initial financial goals? 1 year is quite the right milestone to evaluate. If you don't mind, can you provide more details as to what it took from you and what you got in return from it and if you are satisfied with the outcomes.
