For cancelling both NOW and LATER bookings, cancellation fees may apply to compensate the Captain.
When is a cancellation fee charged?
For NOW bookings:
- You can cancel a ride for free within 5 mins of booking it.
- If you cancel after 5 mins of the booking time, you will be charged a cancellation fee which will be the minimum fare of the ride.
- If you cancel the booking after Captain has arrived, you will be charged a cancellation fee which will be the minimum fare of the ride + any waiting charges
For LATER bookings:
- You can cancel a ride without a cancellation fee up to 60 minutes before your pickup time
- If you cancel after that or once Captain is assigned, you will be charged a cancellation fee which will be the minimum fare of the ride + any waiting charges (if applicable)
