How is the journey price calculated?

At Cabify, we think you should always know how much a journey will cost you before you order it. That's why you'll always see the estimated price before your order.

So, here's how the price of your journey is calculated*:

  • Price per km: we calculate the fastest route from your pick up point to drop off point.
  • Price per minute: we calculate the predicted journey duration with real-time traffic conditions taken into account.
  • Service, safety and sustainability fee: small charge calculated in relation to the total journey price.
  • Additional charges: if applicable, a high demand surcharge may be added to ensure a better availability of vehicles, and/or any toll road charges.

At the end of the journey, charges will be added for any extras you have chosen to use such as stops mid-journey (calculated using the shortest route between each stop), extra waiting time or tolls or child seats that are not already included in the price.

To see a detailed breakdown of the prices in your city, go to our fares page and choose your country and city.

*Please note that if you choose the Taxi category, the fare will be calculated using the taximeter, as per the regulations of the city you're travelling in.
