Are you doubting what you read on the official website? You can use your license just make sure you arrange insurance with the car hire company or before driving

To add to what mr Lexusgs430 said... you can easily pick up a car....but as a jjc or newly qualified UK driver your insurance could be well over £3000 ....the bigger the engine the higher the premium....also depending on your location
|Travel / Re: Diary Of An Uber Driver (interactive) by DisGuy: 1:46pm On Mar 14|
Thanks Romeo for opening an interactive diary
Just want some tips to avoid major faux pas riding uber Lagos
From different uber threads- can you decline a ride just because it's not cash? My uber is linked to paypal/debit card. Thought this would be the most ideal method as there's less stress for the drivers faffing around looking for change
Do drivers get pick up and destination details when they accept a ride? I notice a lot of drivers saying they call to confirm destinations. Then cancel if they dont want to go that route. perhaps taxify?
What does a riders rating do to you as the boss, i notice you rate almost all your riders. Do you check a riders rating before accepting a ride?

|Car Talk / Re: 22 Essential Tips For Uber, Oga-taxi & Taxify Drivers by DisGuy: 1:31pm On Mar 06|
15. Cash or online payment . If you prefer cash transaction, politely explain why to the passenger before the trip is started.
Really? Might as well just quit the gig. Thought Uber was primarily cashless until they introduced cash as AN OPTION.
|Career / Re: Injustice In My Workplace; Should I Return The Money? by DisGuy: 1:23pm On Mar 03|
OP, tell Firm A you have used the money to settle emergency medical bills - if they want to up their profitability they should lose some managemnt staff or stop paying Oga's weekend bonus!
Nigerian companies and evils sha- incompetent and vindictive!
|Career / Re: Injustice In My Workplace; Should I Return The Money? by DisGuy: 1:21pm On Mar 03|
he is getting paying -20k of what the salary with Firm A entails!

Thing I love about changing seasons, is the gradual transformation you actually see the leave changing as the season is changing
All these Unclad trees will be full of green leaves in some few months, then as the season changes they turn yellow, then drop and the cycle continues with the seasons!
|Travel / Re: Living In The Uk/life As A UK Immigrant by DisGuy: 12:34pm On Feb 22|
Just to balance things out a bit..
There are stories aplenty of Men bringing women from Nigeria and elsewhere, who 'cook' them up well well, get them signed up for all the care training, RN courses and other lucrative easy entry roles with bucks coming. Then sit back and reap their investment, hop into Naija frequently to celebrate their accomplishment by getting hooked to Fresh/Fresher Naija girls who won't mind have a far away hubby sending salary for her and new baby's upkeep
|Health / Re: Her Smile After A Successful Dental Re-arrangement Is Quite Adorable - Pictures by DisGuy: 12:26pm On Feb 22|
weird that people travel from US, UK to South America, Eastern Europe to get the same treatment at cheaper rate and almost same quality
But the price in Nigeria is actually higher than it is in US
Economics in Nigeria almost always defies logic!

You're talking the new regime- skilled migrants- I'm talking about uncle Bode and Jegede that went through 6months visiting visa or student visa since 2002 and still on that visit...
|Travel / Re: Living In The Uk/life As A UK Immigrant by DisGuy: 12:44am On Feb 22|
Nothing wrong with actually dating anyone as long as its genuine and you are not taking advantage of the other person. When I see a 'freshie' uncle and an Oyinbo woman, the first thing that comes to my mind unfortunately is - Papers/benefits
There are so many Naijas/Africans all over the country i don't understand the whole traveling to village to get a wife thing, but seems some men like someone to be indebted to them

|Crime / Re: Man Hides N8M In Birthday Cake, Smuggles It Into Nigeria by DisGuy: 9:56am On Feb 16|
He, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges .
The prosecutor , Inspector Oladele Adebayo, told the court that the accused committed the offences on February 8 at No . 6 , Gbolade Adebanjo St. , Ilupeju, Lagos .
I don't understand this part. Was he arrested at the airport. How was the offence committed at a particular address?
|Travel / Re: Jumia Travel Hotel Booking Reviews? by DisGuy: 9:45pm On Feb 15|
My point being..when i book a hotel online i dont want to do a follow up call to speak to anybody or do a separate online transfer. I want to book pay and receive a reservation number all in action. No point being online then calling to ask for account number when there's payment options -visa.mastercard.paypal that could be done in the same process
If you read the reasons things go wrong with online book by previous users- "maybe the person that took the booking is off duty"
This is an oga at the top scenario in 2018. When oga is not around everything goes haywire lol
|Travel / Re: Jumia Travel Hotel Booking Reviews? by DisGuy: 5:21pm On Feb 15|
As someone in the hotel business, you should know most hotels in Nigeria don't have online payment application on their website-that's if they even have a website. The last thing you want is the receptionist trying to give you some account number bearing no resemblance to the Name of the hotel over the phone to pay into for securing your reservation.
I think hotels should get rid of their "pay at reception" model, it's 2018, card/online payment systems shouldn't be rocket science for the web developers.
|Travel / Re: The UFO Hotel That'll Leave You Starry-eyed! by DisGuy: 1:34pm On Feb 15|
Very interesting, I wonder what will happen when all the snow on the mountain melts--or maybe they don't have summer months.
|Travel / Re: Jumia Travel Hotel Booking Reviews? by DisGuy: 1:26pm On Feb 15|
This is a very good plan, many customers will be warned in advance and manage their expectations
also the hotels will be forced to improve or follow up on complains
On TripAdvisor, hotel managers can respond to questions/reviews

I don't think Jumia themselves are scammers. Seems their business process is the problem particularly the hotels on their books
Imagine trying to check in-- Jumia and the hotel managers are only just negotiating fees/commission
|Travel / Re: Jumia Travel Hotel Booking Reviews? by DisGuy: 9:44am On Feb 15|
I checked hotels.ng too. Their prices are similar.
Customers shouldn't have to call the hotels for confirmation though. When you book through expedia, booking.com you know that's set. Perhaps it's the same issue affecting online business in Nigeria- pay on delivery model
