Booking fee in South Africa

To regulate support and operational costs, Bolt has introduced a booking fee of 4% of your trip cost added to your final price as shown in the receipt received after taking a ride.

This fee applies to both cash and in-app (card) payment trips.

Here's an example of how it works:

If your trip cost is R40, a booking fee of 4% will be added to your bill – this is only an R1.60 increase that can be viewed on your receipt.

The reason we implemented the booking fee:

Your safety is of utmost importance to us, the additional fee assists with covering support and new safety and security features that will ensure an even more efficient service on our platform.
