Hi All,

OLA Cabs Charged me Rs 523 for 8 KMs Ride. Initial fare estimate was Rs 100 to Rs 125 but at the time of drop my family was shocked to see the charges. Is their any hope of fare review.

Any suggestions will help me.

Cheers.

Was this in Mumbai? By the way, Uber participates in “Surge pricing” (i.e. a hiked-up fare during higher demand time-periods). Maybe it’s because of that?

Was there a peak time charge mentioned during booking like 2.2x or 4x something like that? Check the bill for peak time charges.

Your bill is multiplied by x times in my case it was 2.5 times as it was an rush hour. So check your multiplier or post the full bill!

Thanks for the screenshot. Looks like OP paid more than 50rs/Km for Ola Taxi which is supposed to be the cheapest Taxi:roll: Ola advertises everywhere that Mini is the cheapest . I wonder what if someone takes a 50 kms ride during 5.0X surge pricing without being aware of concept of surge pricing. He would be hit with a bill of more than 3500 rupees.

@hotdeals

Complaining to Ola won’t help. Even i was a victim of Ola surge pricing. They did not reverse the amount even after complaining. Your only option is to submit a written complaint to RTO.

It’s high time Government steps in and makes surge pricing illegal.

https://cdn2.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_evil.gif

some people have been charged as high as Rs.500/- as peak time extra charges and OLA refuses to solve any issue stating that we accepted the 2.5 times surcharge condtion

Does Ola mention surge pricing multiplier while booking?

PS: Haven’t used any cab service yet.

Uber does. TFS had (has?) a concept of a flat 50 surcharge for peak times. TFS has flip-flopped a few times on this surcharge.

That’s true. Entire peak time charges goes into OLA’s pockets.
