Why drive for Green Tomato Cars?

When it comes to PCO driver opportunities, London is something of a saturated market. However, we’re confident that you’ll find Green Tomato Cars a cut above the competition, with a range of unique benefits and features that set us apart from the chasing pack. Here are a handful of reasons why more and more PCO-licensed drivers are choosing to work with us:

  • Driver-focused. We’re here for you – not the other way round!

– Same-day onboarding – we’re ready if you are!

– Free car rental worth over £7,000/year (tax-free) – over 85% of our drivers exceeded their rent-free targets in the last 12 weeks

– Weekly, quarterly and annual and loyalty bonuses worth over £2,000/year – plus ‘Cost of Living’ financial support for all drivers

– Unlike some operators who only offer National Minimum Wage (NMW) when you are servicing a live booking, we guarantee NMW based on the time you are logged in available for work and servicing live bookings

  • Bespoke software. Our auto-allocation system and driver app have both been developed in-house to meet the specific needs of our drivers, meaning you’ll have access to support, instant messaging and easy-to-use route finders at the touch of a button. The wonders of modern technology are at your fingertips.
  • Enhanced earnings. While our dispatch technology lines you up for your next trip while you’re Passenger on Board with the current fare, our Telematics software gives you tips on how to optimise fuel efficiency.
  • Quality passengers. Over the years, we have cultivated a loyal customer base who keep coming back to us because of our environmental values, the high quality of our vehicles and our outstanding customer service. The flipside of this is that our passengers are respectful and professional customers, caring about their fellow human beings as well as the environment.
  • Personalised support services. We pride ourselves on offering a higher level of support than other PCO licensed operators. As well as in-car support from our app, you’ll also have a dedicated manager to provide assistance whenever you need it and however you like it, whether that’s via phone, email or face-to-face. We’re here to help.
  • Improving air quality. Not only are our low- and zero-emissions vehicles kind to Mother Nature, but we also pay to double offset the emissions we can’t avoid, meaning that all of our journeys are actually carbon negative.

But don’t just take our word for it.
