UBER

Recommended Posts

My understanding from people I have spoken to who do it is that it is very regional. Excellent money some towns nothing in others.

If you are prepared to work by driving wherever to a hot spot you can make a good living (~£70k profits) I understand. That was from a chap who used to sleep in his car following sports events that would push demand up around the country. Glasgow one day, Birmingham, London the next, etc...

An old mate in London reckons he can take £40 an hour for a two or three hours before a late bedtime each night fairly reliably, but insurance (~£7k pa) and tax eat very heavily into that. 

In short when I thought about it last I could only make it make sense if going balls out for a few years rather than as a side job.

UBER drivers are heavily backed financially, They get the obligatory prius for next to nothing inc insurance. Or they can hire it and get the insurance thrown in. We generally have the same UBER driver who picks me and her nibs up from the pub on a Saturday, I asked him about being an UBER driver and he pretty much told me all I need to know. Not for me I think.
