The booking fee is an additional fee added to every trip a passenger requests. The fee assists with covering support and new safety and security features that will ensure an even more efficient service on our platform.
The fee will automatically be included in the riders' fare for both cash and in-app payment (card) trips.
- Cash trips: The booking fee of 3.5% will be added to the total price. Since the total price is paid in cash by the passenger and collected by you, we will then deduct this sum from your weekly earnings.
- Card trips: The booking fee of 3.5% will be automatically added to the total price and collected by Bolt.
This will appear in your weekly statements as well. Collected bookings fees for cash and card trips will be calculated and deducted automatically.
Will it affect your earnings?
This booking fee does not affect your commission.
Other price components such as start, per minute or km rate that you receive for each trip, will not be affected by this booking fee and thus does not affect your earnings too.
