Yep, it's about the bumpers for me. You & I have the same rating system & helping with luggage doesn't get tips.I load and unload anything going in the trunk. Don't want pax dragging stuff across my bumper. If they tip, great and 5☆ for them, if they don't tip, it's 3☆ as I drive off, especially if I see them tip the bellhop or anyone else along the way.
It's about 50/50 on airport rides for me. Way less on other rides. Non tippers are a 4 at best. There are a lot of 4☆ riders out there. They're really nice, trip is good, but they don't tip at all. Someone gives just a $1 tip, they're 5☆ from me. .Yep, it's about the bumpers for me. You & I have the same rating system & helping with luggage doesn't get tips.
The same happened to me when I started. 1 tip in 20 trips. I've found this number to be more like 3-4% of clients will tip you. So in the next 70 trips you should receive 3 or 4 tips, on average.I did 30 rides.. NO ONE tipped. I was nice, helped when needed.. eff um.. load your own crap and hurry up.
The tip's already included with Uber, didn't you know? Never got a cash tip with Uber riders for loading bags. All the mints, water, and loaded bags in the world won't increase the chances of a tip when you're dealing with a system that says not required and so the pax doesn't carry cash or doesn't think they need to.
