Didn’t know Uber could rip you off?

Having dinner and the app said I would be charged 10 Euros for the ride back to our hotel. I accepted. Mohammed got lost and we felt bad (error) so we gave him a generous tip. Got home to see an email that we’d been charged 23 Euros! Wrong pickup and delivery address quoted. BEWARE! Will take a taxi next time.

Did you report it to Uber and ask or a refund? Maybe try that before complaining of being ripped off.

I don't know why you would tip a driver who got lost? Whether an Uber or a taxi driver, it's their responsibility to know the roads. Imagine if a taxi driver got lost, takes double the time, while the meter keeps running. Maybe you wouldn't have been so sympathetic then?

As far as the Uber overcharging issue goes, you need to contact Uber. Nobody here knows the exact situation.

Thanks, it just happened (last night), I’ll give it a try. Not sure how to contact them but I’m sure I can figure it out. It doesn’t make sense to me that it could even happen, my 10 Euros was “accepted” when I made the reservation and then I got an email when we got home and it had changed to 23 Euros.

You can dispute the trip charge directly on the Uber app.
