How do I get paid?

In contrast to other companies we offer three payment options:

  1. Transfer daily to your bank account
  2. Daily payments to a driver’s pre-paid Visa card.
  3. 24/7 cash payments at over 20 cashing facilities across Australia.

Will passengers give me reviews?

Passengers can submit a rating out of 5 stars and submit feedback. We are also proud of our new feature where a passenger can add you as a favourite and you get priority over other drivers if their booking is in your area!

What happens if I get a bad review?

We will be in contact with you and hear your side of the story. We will offer driver training and suggestions on what you can do to get better reviews.

How much does it cost me to use Rydo?

Rydo doesn’t charge commission like other companies. Instead we charge a small job fee between $2 and $5 depending on how big the fare is.

What happens if I can’t find my passenger?

We give you the capability to contact passengers through pre-selected messages and an option for the passenger to call you. If you can’t find the passenger you can select Passenger No Show and we will reimburse you for your trouble.

What should I do if a passenger leaves something in the car?

Contact our hotline 131 001 and we will be able to assist you in returning the lost property. Alternatively, you can drop the item off at our head office located near Sydney Airport and we can organise to return the property back to the passenger.
