Our aim at Uber is to always give you the best ride experience. We are always looking to give you fair prices and that’s why we have upfront pricing for you! With upfront fares, you will know how much you need to pay before you begin the trip. That way, you can decide what’s best for you and your budget.
How do we calculate your upfront fares?
Upfront fares are calculated using the expected time and distance of the trip. Things like traffic during your trip, and number of drivers nearby, while booking your trip, are also factors that are considered. In case of increased demand, the fare with the added surge amount is shown. You don’t have to do the complicated math.
Upfront fares do make your lives easier, however, your final fare may sometimes differ from the upfront fare in certain circumstances.
When does your final fare differ from your upfront fare?
Route Deviation and change in destination
To avoid confusion, always pay what you see on your driver partner’s app. In case of a fare dispute, reach out to us through the help section within your Uber app.
