    In my 4yrs encounter as a lux driver in my previous life, I have had a pax who asked me to carry her purse to a pax who is down to earth that he opened his own doors and tip me at end of journey so it varies.
     
  3. Depends as AmbAmb says, there's all sorts. In my experience, most are OK, but usually just want to be left alone, getting on with work in the back.

    The problem you have with x platform is the level of service. Some provide water, cake etc etc and the rest don't give a damn. I had a pax who asked for a bottle of water and had to remind him this is AL. Then he asked, "Do you have Aux cable?"...No was the reply. A journey of half a mile for £1.50, what is it so important you need an Aux cable? You get free wifi though.

    Not anymore ;-) Jesus, i'm always So happy saying this.
    1.50£ trip , bottle of water and aux cable ?
    Are they serious?
    We should have signs on the back od the seats;
    - no smoking
    - no free water
    - no cake
    - no sweets
    - no aux cable
    - no changing music stations
    - no going to mc donald
    - no stoping for 5 min. anywhere on the way
    My car my Rules.
    And then:
    If you dont like my rules order another X driver
    which maybe he will shake your hand because he never had customer with such a huge rating.
    Forgot!
    I customer asked me if i have a pillow oO
    No!
    Shame... driver yesterday had one...
    ....

    I don't know if you got an aux on TX4 but just had three teens from sw12 to sw17 for £10.40, AL promo so £10 off and pax pay driver 40p. It is one mile journey and they want to connect their aux cable and I am already half way. Music started but we have arrived and all this for a minute of music...:mad:
    Every pax I carry now have got their own cable since no AL driver will provide one.

  12. If you are offering water (300ml), sweets and aux cable to your clients ,you will earn average 50gbp extra per week . some clients give tips for such service.
    The rule is to give to everyone because you can't know which one will tipping you. Could be the pax with 5pounds jurney.

    this thing has been tested by myself and works

    and also you will get good rating aswell

    Sorry to say but this is not a business, this is some kind of porno but not a job, thanks to all smart newbies and their understanding of how to be a good drivers. Addison Lee is the same parody, one job you drive a banker and the next one you pick those little ****s that want everything and don't even pay for that , but you must be suited and booted and polite as you always drive a bankers. To be a private hire driver in London is the worst driving job to do. Think.
    Wish you good luck guys.

  15. other drivers must provide 330 ml water so Uber will increase and become the most popular london cab company . and from that point we going to make big money when surge will go up to 5X or 6X as other American city have and waiting time between jobs will be seconds

    if you guys keep complain just change your job . remember that you are emigrants which come here to work and please english people.
    If you dont like go back to your country , stay there and work for couple months and then come back. you will love uber job.

    Man u dont get it.
    In USA price droped to 70-80 cent per mile in some states.
    Uber wont increase surge more than 2.9.
    You think people are stupid to take Uber on 2.9 ? :d most of them pre book cabs on occasions like tube strikes etc.
    You will still make money in Ramadan in next year anyway but please water , pillow, candie ? God Bless You.
    I'm starting to come to the conclusion that this Driver below is you and it isn't really funny anymore.

  17. not at the moment. but things will change when Uber will take over and black cabs , AL and rest of small companes will disapear. Even if surge will not go up but will be no waiting time between jobs and that will give you oportunity to work with 36 pounds per hour which in my opinion is more than enough.

    I got different point of view.
    Uber will increase commision to 25%.
    Uber will drop prices to 1£/mile when they introduce night tube to coax customers to use Uber instead of Tube.
    Uber will be still getting more and more drivers Hoh ! right ! because all drivers telling they mates Uber is the best job in the world.
    Look Uber WAS Great for Lux/Exec Not now. Uber was Great for X platform and now also falling down.
    Dont think you will get a mortgage working for Uber because you are rich man.

    I think you forgot 1 thing.
    You wont make 36£/h even getting jobs instantly. 30 min drive ( i mean day time) its about 15-16£ if a remember ( i think that was before commision)
