Uber Ride cancellation fee (How to get back cancellation fee)

Earlier there was 5 mins window for ride cancellation , it meant you can decide if you don't want to take the ride due to unavoidable reason. Such as driver is not able to locate you, you made the wrong pick up point, change in plans be it any reason the window is limited to decide now.

Set Destination in advance

Uber is show notification to almost every rider to set destination in advance, as advance as before booking the ride. Uber system will then try to match you with the best driver available on time and location. This will help drivers who are about to end their trip and want trip towards their home only.

Resource Optimization

Uber is optimizing its resource which is driver and application. They want to reduce wait time while pickup, reduce time between next pickup. Uber seems to be committed to utilize every second of drivers time to get more from them. Some drivers complain that they don't get time for lunch or snacks break some days, as back to back trips keep coming due to recent changes in uber app features.

Uber Blog excerpts

We’re experimenting with wait times and cancellations in Dallas, New Jersey, New York, and Phoenix. If they improve the experience for riders and drivers, we’ll look at rolling them out more broadly. 
Our goal is to help riders and drivers connect quickly and easily so they can get on their way and we hope pilots like these give us the flexibility to test new ideas and improve the reliability of our platform.

How to Re-authorize or unlink paytm with Uber India App

Having and active Uber and Paytm account is good, but if something goes wrong from either Uber or paytm side, you the customer suffers a lot. You can't book your ride back home, you can't book ride to airport, railway station. It becomes annoying to have such messy technical app. We cannot predict what may happen in future but we may be ready with some preparation.

Uber does all account sweep for security measures from time to time, if it finds any suspicion, it blocks account, put hold on booking a ride, asks for re-verification of ID or payment method. Recently Paytm was hacked and some hacker were able to make payment in paytm from some other account, hance Uber took security measure and put hold on some accounts.

How can you regain access of your Uber account once it's disabled?

Q. How can you regain access of your Uber account once it's disabled?

Recently uber had this scheme of "refer someone, that refferal gets 600 credits and you get 600 when he makes his/her first ride".

I made many people join , though all refferals were real and accounts were created with their permission and presence but all accounts were created from my phone .

I earned many credits. But soon my account was closed down.
Now whenever I try logging in from any acount in my phone  it gets banned within few minutes.

Is there any solution or any hack to avoid this and get my acount back ? I still have 5k credits left in my account and I desperately want it.
