How to get a 5-star passenger rating on Uber, according to drivers
Not only do you rate your driver, but your driver rates you on a scale of one to five stars after each journey.
You may think, who cares? So what if my Uber drivers don't like me? But there are direct consequences of having a lower passenger rating.
As Jon Hoos, an UberX driver with two years of experience, puts it on Quora, "When your rating is low, the driver will likely take a second or two and think to themselves, 'This rider has a 3.2 star rating. I don't know if I want them in my car.' I have not accepted rides because of a poor passenger rating, and I know that I will do it again."
Now, if you just checked your passenger review (all you have to do is open the Uber app and click on the menu button in the top left corner), and you're not happy with what you find, don't fret. Since that little number under your name is an average of all your ratings, earning a few more five-star reviews will up your average rating.
Figuring out what exactly constitutes a five-star passenger is a little less clear, however.
When Business Insider asked more than 40 Uber drivers to reveal their personal rating systems, we found that, though there are some basic standards most drivers hold passengers to, oftentimes what one Uber driver may consider totally acceptable, another Uber driver may deem worthy of point deductions.
If you follow these rules, however, you're almost guaranteed to get a five-star rating:
