Get the most from driving with Lux

Here are some tips to help you meet you earning goals and keep your rating high:

1. Drive at the right place at the right time

High-end restaurants, upscale shopping areas, entertainment districts, and airports are a great place to start. Try Friday and Saturday nights, as well as any time after major concerts and sporting events.

2. Keep your vehicle looking great 

Passengers who choose a premium ride appreciate a premium experience. Be sure to keep your vehicle clean — inside and out. 

3. Check in with your passenger

From starting the ride with a friendly greeting to asking about your rider’s music and A/C preferences, taking care of the small details makes a big difference.

4. Go above and beyond

Helping passengers with their bags and giving them the inside scoop on local hotspots (if they’re visiting from out-of-town) are easy ways to elevate a ride from four stars to five.
