Ride (PHV) Bookings
If you book a 'Ride' (PHV), your fare is fixed, meaning the base fare is not subject to change. However, this price is then subject to additional fees such as cancellation fees, waiting fees, Central London fees, airport fees and surge pricing.
The calculation of the tour value works as follows:
Final fare = (Base price + Price/km x km + Price/min x minutes) x Surge Factor
Please note: Surge pricing does not apply to any fees.
For the same distance and duration, your price will be 20% above regular rides, excluding all additional fees and tolls (like Central London fees, Airport fees, cancellation fees, waiting fees, and surge pricing, etc.).
Taxi (Black Cab) Bookings
Taxi (Black Cab) booked via the FREE NOW app are subject to the metered in-cab fare, in line with the requirements of the local authority or regulatory body.
The estimates given in the app are an approximate fare, to give you a rough idea of the cost. These are just estimated as the final fare may vary depending on a number of factors such as the actual final destination, length of trip, weather, traffic, road closures, unforeseen conditions etc. The fare on the metre at the end of the trip is the correct and final fare.
