BEFORE THE RIDE
Save time and get more co-travellers!
1. Offer your ride as soon as you can
People prefer to plan their car journey as early as possible. So the sooner you offer your ride, the more likely you are to fill your car!
2. Give a specific departure point
Co-travellers need to know exactly where you’ll be leaving from, so give them clear instructions on where to meet you! Plus it will save you answering lots of questions :)
Give a specific address, e.g. “Rajiv Chowk- Metro Station, New Delhi”
3. Include a stopover point
Offering to pick up passengers along the way is a certain way to fill your car! Add stopover points to get more co-travellers.
If your stopover is a large city, choose a meeting point on the outskirts to save time.
4. Provide ride details about your car journey
The more information you give about your ride, the more likely a co-traveller is to book as it saves them needing to ask a lot of questions!
Example of a ride details:
“I’m a working professional in IT space working with an MNC in Gurgaon going to Chandigarh to visit my family for the weekend. I’ll be leaving from IFFCO Chowk Metro Station at 10am. I love music!“
5. Complete your profile
Add a photo of yourself and your car, verify your Govt ID and fill in your bio – ridesharers like to know who you are and what car they’ll be travelling in.
6. Be reactive
Respond promptly to messages and calls from co-travellers and don’t forget to update the number of available seats in your car when they get booked!
You’ll be even more reactive using the mobile app!
7. Contact your co-travellers
Touch base on the day of your ride to confirm ride details with your co-travellers. You can see each passenger’s phone number above the private message they sent you. You can send a private message via the site or the app!
Happy co-travellers will leave you better ratings,
meaning you’ll get more passengers next time!
8. Look after your co-travellers
Co-travellers like to travel in comfort: have a clean car, take regular breaks and drive safely!
If you don’t have a big car, don’t take any more than two co-travellers in the back seat.
9. Be punctual
Your passengers count on you to be at the departure point on time.
If you’re unexpectedly delayed, let them know!
AFTER THE RIDE
Car owners with ratings get more co-travellers
10. Leave a rating
Most co-travellers who receive a rating leave one in return.
The better your ratings, the more likely ridesharers
are to book with you.
