Uber upfront pricing hides the surge but still applicable

Uber fare mental calculation
Uber fare mental calculation

Uber fare calculation wasn't a quantum calculation but it was tough for some, so uber just plans to phase out this difficulty and get rid of surge pricing calculation and mental math issues with some.

Uber fares are very dynamic in nature, means their prices may go up anytime as demand surges, or you get stuck in traffic, in all the cases or none you have to mentally calculate the trip fare to get an idea. 


Uber already providing an estimated price based upon current rate and average traffic conditions but it seems that was not enough for customers.

Uber Fare New calculation rule says..

Upfront fare = Basic fare+ current traffic estimation charge+ surge (if any)

Now Uber will give you exact amount for your destination once you start booking your ride. Now onwards there will be no lightening symbol to show there is surge. 


Simple takeaway from this post is you don’t need to calculate your final fare it will be shown you upfront based on your source, destination, traffic and availability just like airlines fare.

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.

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.
