  • Rating and reviews

    Rating is a system for evaluating personal impressions by trip participants.

    Why do you need a rating

    The rating system primarily helps to create safe and comfortable travel conditions. It allows you to assess the quality of the service provided. Both the driver and the client can rate the ride. This allows us to warn about some unscrupulous and irresponsible drivers or passengers. Unfortunately, there are sometimes not punctual, inattentive, and sometimes rude both drivers and customers. Feedback helps to identify the cause of conflict situations and eliminate it, block those who are regularly rude and provoke conflict, behave irresponsibly and dishonestly. Also, the feedback left during the evaluation of the trip gives us the opportunity to respond to problems in a timely manner and solve them.
    • No discrimination is permitted in reviews! on the basis of age, color, disability, gender identity, marital status, nationality, race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, or any other basis covered by discrimination laws.
    • Steady downgrades are prohibited and may result in a fine or blocking in the service.

    How is the rating calculated?

    The rating appears after the first rating for a ride with you. It is calculated automatically based on the last 50 ratings (not all). The later the trip was rated, the more it affects the rating. Therefore, it is important to receive subsequent ratings of "5" to correct the rating as soon as possible. After all, a rating system like ours makes it possible to return the highest possible rating.
    Ratings left 24 hours after the end of the trip do not affect the rating, as well as ratings related to the operation of the application.

    Rating protection function

    If a driver with a 5.0 rating continues to receive 5 ratings without interruption, their rating is protected. This allows drivers with exceptionally high ratings and regular top scores to keep their ratings high in the event of a low rating that is left unfairly without a reason.

    Can I appeal a rating or review?

    • You can appeal reviews with ratings from 1 to 3. Only those ratings that are left by mistake or are not true are subject to correction.
    • A score of "4" is considered positive and cannot be corrected. The rating after that quickly increases with subsequent trips, provided that you receive high ratings in the future.
    • A customer review can only be removed or corrected if it is false or offensive.
    • If the review contains a text comment describing the reasons for the rating reduction, it is not deleted. This is the customer's impression after traveling with you.
    • A rating with the tags "Driver's work", "The car in terrible condition" or with a reasoned review is not corrected.

    Why is it important to keep the rating high?

    The rating affects the distribution and availability of orders.
    The rating and reviews form a general idea of the driver's personal and professional qualities. This determines the success of the driver's interaction with both passengers and the service. Passengers may refuse to travel with a driver. A low rating (below 4.7) may result in a driver being blocked from the service.
    Therefore, it is important to always adhere to the rules and terms of service. Be polite, create comfortable conditions for the passenger, follow traffic rules and keep the car in good condition.

    It is strictly forbidden to

    • To come to orders with outsiders.
    • To clickup "Arrived" before the actual arrival at the specified address.
