Q: How much do I pay Bolt?
A: We do not have any monthly fees, so you only pay for finished trips. We usually ask for 10% to 20% of the ride fee, depending on your city. You can get more information by contacting us.

So, is it 10% until it's not?  Do you charge 10% until you get your foot in the door and then ramp it up?

It's 10% in Dublin, that's a generic answer because we're in 150 cities the fees range for each city. For example, we have different fee's in London than we do in Vienna. We tend to always be the lowest on the market.

All competition should be welcomed except when it's in the form of more taxis and lower fares.

Something tells me Bolt started off in the UK with lots of bonuses but ended up offering discounts.I'll dig out the youtube video.

Here it is second app reviewed.Drop below 4.5 stars and you're deactivated.Also Bolt seem very fond of discounts.I'm out.

We don't auto block drivers in Dublin based on rating and we don't discount prices, unless we're paying for the discount. A drivers take take home pay would never be affected by a promotion we run.

I wouldn't have posted here if I didn't want have an open discussion. Some want competition, others don't. Each to their own. We'll do our best to make sure we don't make the mistakes others have.

I tend to agree with MfH, competition is welcome. If the launch goes ahead I'll give it a try provided it's open to all licensed drivers - I have tried all such apps to date, in fact I remember being iCabbie's only driver back in the day - and switch off if/when the commission increases or I'm refused a payment or otherwise have a row with them.

Thanks!, yes, open to all licensed drivers.

Country Manager, if that helps! We use ratings to know the level of service a driver is providing to passengers. If alarming, we'll talk to the driver first about bringing it up. If it continues, we'd consider a block.

Yu see that's me problem wit freenow ....an yur doing it too .....do you get stars off your mot after you perform at night ?
Now I'm not trying to be impolite luke ....I wish any competition well and if you treat drivers well then you can kick the likes of freenow with ther priority ranking 5 stars bollocks out of the country with drivers support ...thers huge resentment out ther because yous dont seem to realise that most taxi drivers are grown ups ...  .the last time I got a gold star was off me ma cause I didnt wet the bed ....think I nailed it after me 18 th birthday but I'm probably the exception....
Now if your offering that sort of hogwash like freenow is .....then your going get the same resentments.....
Thers am owl basic of management of people  I learned in me first week at college ....tink it was called the carrot or stick or sumtin .....how to get a donkey to pull the cart for yu ....now I'm not a donkey but if you want to treat me like a partner in business...then I'll jump tru hoops for ya cause " wer all in this together for the mutual good ....symbiotic relationship I think david attenborough calls it .....
Anyway ....I'm self employed ....I provide the means to get people from A to B ...insurance, the vehicle , maintenance etc and me knowledge around town and my way with the ladies so theyll come back for another trip again ....
Now you provide some of my customers.....as soon as you start looking down on me an threatening me wit sanctions and gold stars an all that bolix then you arnt me friend anymore .....how come you people in these apps cant understand that ?
I'll join bolt if .....nearest car gets job
The stars shite is fuked out of it
The threatening is fuked out of it
Absolutely no ambassadors lick arse shite
No priority shite
Keep it simple and I'm in ....an I've a lovely brand new ( nearly)  electric vehicle waitin at yur disposal .....
Good luck with yur app

The answer helps but the ! was not called for, I'm a grown adult and have been through many positions in my 62 years on this planet, I do like to know who I'm dealing with. Little bit of advice for you when dealing with people , it's always nice to introduce yourself properly if you want to do business with people.

I'll have a go.
So Luke , tell us all about yourself.
How many years of experience have you personally in the taxi business?
What is you background?
Why is your company one that drivers should sign up to?
Compared to others out there, what advantage is it to a driver to sign up with bolt?
You say its 10% commission, how long will that commission be  before you increase it to a higher %
Why are you launching now in Dublin during a pandemic?
I await with interest

Are you confusing "Bolt" with "Cabapp"?
"Oh Mama, can this really be the end, to be stuck inside a taxi with the Chinese pox again". Apologies to the other  Bob.
