    $100 is the answer.

    Our fares are already deeply discounted. You're undercutting the lowest estimate by $5. That's good enough.

    $120! You’re taking on much more risk going off ap. Don’t devalue yourself.

    better talk to your insurance company about off app rides

    something goes wrong and you incur a ton of liability

    Uber pricing does not factor for the dead miles to get to the riders location or for you to get back to your home base

    I’m assuming the Uber estimate is for an X. I’d charge XL rates

    So $175. But don’t do it without the proper insurance and permits and if you do do it without permits and the trip is to an airport.... collect your money before you drop them off. If the airport police see it you may be arrested

    It depends on how far the ride is and where it puts you.

    Say if it is a heavily surged ride, only goes like 20 miles and puts you in an area that you can easily recover from, $80.

    Regular fare going 70 miles and you need at least a half hour to get back into a normal population center, $110
     
  15. 44 miles each way, drop off put me 5 miles from home
