Now You Can Know The Exact Price Of Your Ride On Your App Uber
Good news for all Uber fans! The ride hailing giant is soon going to provide exact fare rates before you even get into the car. As for now, you get an approximate value of your ride price when you put in your destination but things are going to change for the better. You will soon know exactly how much will it cost for your ride before you even book it on the app Uber. This feature is going to be available in the markets of New York, New Jersey, Miami, San Diego, Philadelphia and Seattle soon while other markets will follow suit in the next couple of months.
Uber’s price model depends on factors like surge pricing, demand of Uber cars at the moment you book your ride, local traffic condition and of course, the distance you travel. Based on all these factors, Uber used to provide an approximate value of your ride but now things are going to change. You will be able to know the exact fare without any surprises before you book your ride on the app Uber. Even when the surge pricing is on, you are no more going to get a calculator and an estimated price but the exact fare that you are going to pay at the end of the ride.
The benefits of upfront fares in Uber
The “Buy what you see” rule will be applicable even to Uber rides. If you have the money, you can get the ride and know what you will pay at the end of it without any surprises, or shock to be precise. Furthermore, you will get an idea regarding the price rates on your app Uber before you even book the car which is a great thing in itself. You can refrain from booking if you think that the prices are going too high and then again try after sometime.
Uber is struggling hard to compete with local ride hailing services in several markets across the globe. This new feature on the app Uber will probably help it to grab a lot of attention among users. Who wouldn’t want to know the cost of a ride before even booking it? Most people will be delighted to know what they are going to pay at the end of the ride even before booking it. So, as this new feature rolls in most countries of the United States and some places like Mumbai and Hyderabad in India, other markets gear up to meet the needs of users anytime soon.
