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.

How much I will earn by attaching my car with UBER or OLA

This is very common question now a days in India. Some of the Quora posts hints that OLA/UBER drivers are earning in lakhs per month which is not the case now.

Competition is getting tougher, 100's of new drivers are joining the platform. Now they don't get enough rides sometimes only then UBER/OLA pay them minimum amount for the day.(Already decided amount based upon business).
