A scooter ride price is calculated based on the unlock fee and minute rate. If you pause your ride, the minute rate will still be calculated.
To check the rates, click on a scooter icon on the map and see the price below the Reserve button. Note that the cost of all your rides within one day from 00:00 until 23:59 will not exceed a maximum daily rate. The day rate value is shown in the app.
Bolt performs a temporary card verification before each scooter trip. It is done to check your card’s validity and minimise any fraudulent use of your card and information. The authorised amount is set automatically and can be listed as a pending charge that is either returned immediately or within 14 business days, depending on your bank.
