Zombies chasing 3 for 1 and Uber holding surge! It’s a temporary test and it’s working. 19 plate Kia Nero who will pay the bill? They can’t mess around
Soon they will realise Uber trick.

Surge is blood for Uber. Uber can’t remove will not remove....

If Uber doesn’t surge other ones will do. This is happening as I write. Keep calm

Find your strategy will earn more then before. Don’t be loyal to any app they are all same.

Surge? You mean ripping off the travelling public.
No. I mean trying to earn a decent fare. You can’t possibly make a living by getting paid £10 from Shepard’s bush to Harrow. Surge pricing allows drivers to take home a half decent wage at the end of the week.

Without it, Ph is not worth it.

It always amuses me on here. One day the forum is full of people accusing bc of being a rip off because they have the absolute audacity to charge a proper 2019 rate for their services. The next day everyone is complaining because there isn't a surge on Uber, and they are not getting the proper 2019 rates that they want. Do the Kol and get 24/7 surge. Or work for Uber and get 24/7 lubed up.

I would rather earn 25% less then a black cabbie and get paid straight off the bat rather then doing the knowledge for 4 years to earn a bit more

25% is just Uber's cut. The bc earns at least twice as much as an Uber driver to start with. Some estimate three times. So take that multiple and then remove 25%. Oh and the Kol took me 3 not 4 years. With no fear of deactivation if a rider thinks you didn't bend over far enough. Really being your own boss, with the self respect of achieving something. Plus a better standing in the mortgage/credit market, and you can still earn while you learn. But it's your choice.

It's the consecutive trips. That's why its not surging anymore. I can not believe that most of my colleagues are so stupid.... How can you take the bait and accept every single non surge trip to make £8.00 after 3 consecutive trip? Do they not have a brain of an eight years old to calculate the fare and see they can make more with a single trip with 1.5 surge on it? How stupid damn can you be?

Just think what you'd earn driving a tractor doing them hours (and no one to share it with other than the Mrs)
But you are right, you can't put a price on contentment.
