Introducing Upfront Pricing

Upfront pricing shows you the exact cost of your trip before requesting a ride with any Bolt vehicle category.

Your trip price is calculated by adding:

  • Base fare: the price for pickup
  • Minute rate: time from start to end of a trip
  • Kilometre rate: distance of the route covered
  • Dynamic pricing (if applicable, when demand is high).

To see the price for the selected route, do the following:

  • Tap on Search destination
  • Enter your destination in the Where to? field
  • The cost is displayed next to the ride category.


  • If you change your destination after starting a trip, this will affect the upfront price
  • If the duration of your trip is longer than expected or estimated due to traffic or other factors, the price will be recalculated based on the actual time and distance
  • Airport, tolls and parking fees (if applicable) are added after your trip
  • Upfront pricing is currently active only in some cities. Check Android Google Play or iOS App Store to update your Bolt app and benefit from this feature.
