Many Kiwis are feeling the sting of record-high prices at the pump.
We’ve heard from driver-partner feedback that the recent sudden spike in petrol prices is having an impact. To help, we’re rolling out a temporary (60 day) fuel surcharge on all trips in New Zealand.
This will be a temporary per-km based surcharge paid by riders, 100% of which will go to driver-partners. This means driver-partners will receive from riders about an extra 40 cents NZD on an average trip.
The goal of this is to reduce the burden of the unprecedented nature of recent fuel increases while keeping the Uber platform working well for everyone.
Note: Service fees will not be applied to the temporary surcharge.
