7 Uber Hacks You Should Be Using

7 Uber Hacks You Should Be Using
7 Uber Hacks You Should Be Using

1. Schedule your Uber

I've heard from 2 separate Uber drivers that they're coordinated with clients to drive the same morning commute every day. If you regularly take the same Uber route and have established rapport with your driver, get their phone number so you can schedule them at a mutually convenient time. This works best if it's extremely convenient for your driver (e.g. you live near your driver and can start your morning together every day). If you actually get this to work, cherish your new friendship!

2. Get Free Uber Credit by Referring your Friends

Invest some effort to get people around you to sign up for Uber, and you'll get a free ride (usually Rs300-Rs600). I've had success with this by just sending over my referral link over my college group. This is getting harder and harder as Uber gets more established.

3. Avoid Bad Uber Drivers

If you have encounter an Uber Driver that you never want to ride with again, then rate them 3 or fewer stars, and you will never be matched with them again.

4. Minimize Wait Time

To minimize the time you have to wait to get an Uber, 
          1) call your Uber ahead of time, before you actually get to the pickup point 
          2) call your Uber driver right after they get assigned to you, to make sure they know where to pick you up. 
It is NOT advisable to keep your Uber driver waiting for you for too long, since this can severely annoy your driver and decrease your passenger rating.

5. Get Refunded for your Grievances

If you ever have a less-than-satisfactory Uber ride (your ride is unsafe, or your driver took a less-than-optimal route), you can contact Uber support and complain. If you have a valid grievance, they will usually give you a ride credit as a redress within 24 hours. I've done this multiple times  via email with good results.

6. Uber through the Drive-Through

You can ask your Uber driver to detour through the drive-through. Just a warning that some Uber Drivers are not amused at this, since the time-rate for Uber rides is poor, and you won't be paying for any mileage while you're waiting for your burger. Your Uber Driver may retaliate by rating you low, which brings me to...

7. Find out your Uber Passenger Rating

I haven't really found a use for this, but you can learn what your Uber passenger rating is. Your Uber Driver will see this rating whenever they decide whether or not to pick you up. If your rating is low, that might explain why it's taking so long for a car to confirm you. If your rating is super-low, then you might get banned from the system.

Q. How can you regain access of your Uber account once it's disabled?

Recently uber had this scheme of "refer someone, that refferal gets 600 credits and you get 600 when he makes his/her first ride".

I made many people join , though all refferals were real and accounts were created with their permission and presence but all accounts were created from my phone .

I earned many credits. But soon my account was closed down.
Now whenever I try logging in from any acount in my phone  it gets banned within few minutes.

Is there any solution or any hack to avoid this and get my acount back ? I still have 5k credits left in my account and I desperately want it.
