Overcharging Uber cab complaint I got two nasty surprises from Uber in Kolkata, India

Achintyarup Ray / Cab Booking / June 24, 2017 / Kolkata / West Bengal

Address: C 9 Rabindra Pally, Flat 3B, Brahmapur

Over the past two days, I got two nasty surprises from Uber in Kolkata, India. Both the times, I booked cabs under their Uber Pass offer and both the times the fare shown was Rs 99. But after I got off, once the amount deducted was Rs 273.84 (on 20.6.17 for a journey from Garia to Jimmy's Kitchen) and the second time it was Rs 308.78 (on 22.6.17 for a journey from my Brahmapur home to One Auto at Kalikapur, a distance of 7.9 km). What disgusting service!

    I took a Uber go at 8am on 24th January with Shakil from Woodstock floors Nirvana sector 50 Gurugram to Huda city centre metro station. Fare was shown as 80/-...i was shocked when I later saw a message saying that I was charged nearly 800/- .I have all the screen shots to provide that Shakil did not end his trip but extended it much beyond. I have been cheated and demand my money back.

    I was shown fare of Rs 79 while booking uber pool..but because of driver stupidity he forgot to pick one passenger and then took u turn just to pick fellow passenger..

    OVERCHARGED EVERY SINGLE TIME by Tabinda hossain:

    Im actually so disgusted by your service. So im from kolkata and i have been using Uber for sometime now. For the last three trips i was overcharged by 70-80rs on the basis of "PARKING FEE " and "TOLL TAX" which is supposed to be included in the estimated fare which you show at the start of a trip. At the end of the trip the fare breakup in the driver's phone doesnt include the parking charge and the toll tax and they end up asking me for the same. Every single time i end up in a tussle with the driver and then i lodge a complaint and the money is refunded. WHAT IS THIS? IS THIS LIKE A REGULAR CYCLE NOW? Half of the time you dont bother to reply on the helpline. I would NEVER recommend anybody I know of to ever use an Uber. Its a fraud organisation.

    I booked a cab from Gurgaon to Vikaspuri on 16Sep.2017 for my neighbour.The driver collected Rs.650 as bill.When I checked on my uber app.it still shows outstanding Rs.650.I contacted Uber by mail.The reply is that it was booked for online payment.They are not ready to take action against their driver but still asking customer to pay once again for the trip.

    Overcharged for a trip by Bhavini Verma:

    Hi Team,

    The route which I took was different from the original route only by only 2-3Km, so this much fare should not be charged.

    A steep increase of Rs 170 doesn't justify the difference in distance.

    Kindly have a look at the Google map and see the difference in both the routes.

    And if this is the case then i think we should boycott uber.
