Is driving for Lyft Lux worth it?
I have a brand new BMW and am looking for some extra side income, so I’m considering driving for Lyft. Since my car is nice, I think it’ll qualify as a luxury vehicle. Can drivers make decent money driving for Lyft Lux?

Ooh, a new BMW—I want a ride!
Many rideshare drivers report that it’s worth it to drive for Lyft Lux. You’ll make more money per ride for essentially offering the same service. Plus, Lyft Lux riders tend to be more respectful and tip well.
Here are some tips for making the most of driving for Lyft Lux:
- Keep your car absolutely spotless. You’ll stand out to riders when your car is spiffy and clean—and you’ll be more likely to get a fantastic rating and a good tip.
- Open doors for passengers and help load luggage and bags. This makes the ride feel more like a chauffeur service—and it might even be what some customers are expecting. Whether you’re meeting expectations or wildly impressing your riders, your likelihood of a hefty tip will be much higher.
- Offer amenities. Offering extras in your car like phone-charging cables, complimentary water and snacks, and hand sanitizer put the cherry on top of your riders’ experience—and hopefully, they’ll leave a better tip to say thanks.
