Cancellations can be frustrating for riders and driver partners alike, which is why the cancellation fee is in place to ensure that drivers are fairly compensated for their time when committing to a trip.

In general, if a trip is cancelled within 5 minutes of the initial request, you will not be charged a cancellation fee. However, if it is cancelled after 5 minutes, you will be charged a fee depending upon the category of the ride. The cancellation fee will be automatically added to your next successfully completed trip.
