A cancellation fee is normally applied when you are enroute to the pickup destination and the customer cancels a ride after 5 minutes of ride acceptance, you were no more than 5 minutes late than the ETA shown on your app at the time of accepting the booking. A cancellation fee will not be applied if the customer cancels a ride after you have arrived at the pick-up destination and you were no more than 5 minutes late than the ETA shown on your app at the time of accepting the booking
Driving for long periods of time without taking breaks increases the risk of accidents that can harm you, your passengers and other road users. If you accumulate 10 hours of driving time within 24 hours from the start of a shift, we will put you on an Enforced Rest for 8 hours. During this time, you will not be able to log on and take trips.
This time starts from the moment that you accept a trip until the time the trip finishes (either drop off or cancellation)
