'Round up and donate' is a new feature in the app to round up your trip to the nearest pound every time you travel with us. Then, we'll donate the difference to the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC).
How does it work?
With the 'Round Up and donate' feature turned on, if your trip costs £10.64 then you'll pay £11 and we'll donate the extra £0.36 directly to the ICRC.
What if the total amount is already rounded?
If the total amount is already rounded (£10.00) then there will be no donation applied.
If the total amount is £10.01, round up will apply and the final amount will be £11.00.
How do you activate it?
Activate the feature before booking:
- Head to your profile
- Select 'Round up and donate'
- Tap the toggle on the right-hand side to activate rounding up
You can also activate it in route on the home screen.
Where will your money go?
Your money goes 100% to the ICRC which provides emergency relief and health assistance to people all over the world. From those fleeing conflict in Ukraine, to people affected by earthquakes in Turkey and Syria.
How is it reflected on the invoices?
Donations are not included on the invoices as we bill the trip on behalf of the driver/partner, who is providing the service; while the donation is a contribution unrelated to the ride.
What payment methods are eligible for donation?
- Private payment methods: VISA, Mastercard, AMEX, PayPal, Apple Pay, Google Pay.
- Credit cards that have the flag “business” but are not connected to any FREE NOW business account.
