Driver to Rider referral program!

Simply refer a rider to Ola, and once they ride with us we’ll send £10 your way.

We haven’t forgotten about the riders either, they save money too. Once they have scanned your QR code and downloaded the Ola app they will receive an Ola voucher worth £5.

1. Check the customer section in your Refer & Earn tab
2. Ask the customer to scan the QR code*
3. A link will then prompt the customer to download and install the app. Post signup, they’ll receive a ride coupon.

* If the customer is using an older model of phone, you may need to ask them to download the QR scanner to receive their offer

Terms & Conditions:
Drivers will receive £10 direct to their bank, for successful referrals made through the drivers’ app only. Amount will be credited to your bank account each week for the previous weeks’ successful referrals, between Wednesday and Friday. The referral process is deemed successful only when the referee completes their first ride with Ola. Drivers are not required to download the customer app for referrals. Any referrals made through the old process will not be deemed valid going forward.
