During periods of high demand, FREE NOW makes use of 'Surge Pricing'.
What is 'Surge'?
- Surge means that there are more users ordering rides than there are drivers.
- To meet this increased demand, the price 'surges' to encourage more drivers into the area.
- Depending on demand you can earn up to 3x the normal fare through surge.
- Surge pricing does not apply to cancellation or waiting fees.
Be aware that the fare will be based on the surge at the pick-up location rather than the location from which you accept.
For example, if you are in a 2.5x surge zone and the customer is ordering from a 2.2x surge zone, the fare will be multiplied by 2.2x.
