When it comes to earning a living by driving in London, Abdul is a seasoned campaigner. With over 27 years of experience, he recently switched to platforms such as Uber for earning an income.

Abdul has been a Splend member for 7 months and, after the lockdown restrictions have been lifted, he returned to the road. In a strange twist, Abdul was referred to us by someone who he’d originally told to check out Splend.

When asked about the phone call that made him join, Abdul recalls it wasn’t just the high-quality cars that sold him, it was also the service that came with them.

“My friend actually recommended Splend and said that it’s like a family business, and that everyone is very nice.”

That’s when it was Abdul’s turn to call Splend.

“I never regret calling Splend. Every time you have a problem, you make a phone call, and even if they don’t get back to you straight away, they always follow up with a return call, That’s something most of the other companies don’t do.”

Now, the decision to join Splend got even better, thanks to the £500 monthly prize he won, which Abdul still can’t wrap his head around.

“This is the first time ever that I won a prize. I’m so excited, I thought it was a dream. It’s something that every single driver at Splend should look to win. You do the right thing, and you’re rewarded.”

When asked about why safe driving is important Abdul, he was quick to point out the benefits.

“When you drive nicely, within the law, you’re not only able to save a lot of petrol, but it prevents accidents.”

Abdul’s advice for other drivers is simple.

“Be patient and do the right thing, and good things will happen. ”

Currently, Abdul is on our Flexi subscription and looking to use his Green Air Fund to upgrade to an electric car on Flexi own.

“I’m really thinking about getting an electric car next year, using my savings with the Uber Clean Air Fund. I am confident it’s going to save me a lot of money.”

“It’s like Christmas came early this year. I feel like a little boy receiving an unexpected Christmas present. I was exhilarated all day, I still can’t believe I’ve actually won £500!”
