Adding or Choosing a Payment Method

You can choose to pay for your Bolt rides either by cash (in some cities), corporate payments, bank cards (debit or credit card), or Apple Pay before ordering a ride. Cash payment method will be added to your account upon registration.

To add a card, follow these simple steps:

  • Go to the Main Menu (top left corner)
  • Click on Payments
  • Select Add Your Card
  • Manually enter or scan your card details and click Confirm
  • Enter your card expiry date and your CVC code (three digits on the back of your card).

Bolt performs a temporary card verification to check your card’s validity and minimise/avoid any fraudulent and unauthorised use of your card and information. Once verification is complete, the holds will be removed from your account.

Choose the payment method you want to use:

  • Click on Payments
  • Select your payment method by clicking on the one you prefer.


  • If you wish to have your company pay for your business rides, register for a Business Account 
  • If you choose card payment, please do not pay in cash for your rides
  • If you experience problems adding your card, please see Unable to Add a Card
  • All data is stored securely, encrypted and kept private
  • To protect your identity and funds, we may block your card payment in case of any unusual or suspected fraud activities.
