Work with your own schedule. No minimum hours, no boss and no monthly fees. Driving with the Bolt ride-hailing platform means that you earn good money on your own terms.
Below you can find 5 reasons why you should sign up as a Bolt driver in London. 👇
For us, the happy wife, happy life saying goes like this: happy driver, happy everyone. Surely not the best representation of our rhyming skills, but you’ll get the point.
We know that it’s not nice to finger-point at others, so we’ll point the fingers at ourselves. Bolt’s 15% commission is up to half as low as the commission taken by other ride-hailing apps in London. Easy math – this means more money to your pocket.
As stated above, as far as numbers go, all London Bolt drivers are guaranteed to keep at least 85% of their earnings from all completed trips. Sure, everyone can separate 15 from 100 and that’s great, but what does that mean in the long run?
Up to 10% higher earnings.

Oh yes, there’s more.
Normally, driver earnings consist of the money made from completed trips minus the commission. However, in order for you to coin extra, we’ve put a bonus system in place that guarantees you higher earnings based on different conditions, e.g. hours of the day or a minimum number of completed trips. You’ll get specific information about these bonuses via the Bolt Driver app.
Find the guideline for checking bonuses here.
Earned bonuses will be calculated and added to your earnings balance on a weekly basis. So you’ll receive your share alongside the regular payouts from Bolt.
Driver bonuses are a great way to increase your earnings by optimising the time spent behind the wheel. Experience from other markets has shown us that top drivers increase their earnings by driving during the morning and evening bonus hours while taking some time off during the day to have a rest. It’s a formula to maximise the earnings and minimise the downtimes.
Yes, it may sound old, but when we say that we care about our drivers, we’re not just randomly throwing out worn-out phrases to please the crowd. Driver well-being and safety are very close to our hearts.
Here’s how we back up our talk.
First, you can get in touch with us 24/7 via the Bolt Driver app. There’s a team of willing specialist ready to help you in all ways possible. Be it a question about earnings, the app itself or something else – we’ll get back to you in a few hours.
Secondly, we’ve integrated an in-app panic button service to protect you from unwanted abuse. If any of your passengers are being aggressive, violent or act in an intolerable way, please let us know by reporting it. The ‘SOS’ service provides an added layer of safety for you by contacting the police and paramedics immediately when needed. You can read more about reporting misconducts from here.
Our mission is to make sure you are content and feel safe driving with Bolt. Also, know that we always value your feedback, it helps us improve.
