What is a Booking Fee?

The Booking Fee is paid by the rider to help cover the cost of government-mandated commercial auto insurance that Uber maintains on behalf of TNC/rideshare drivers, as well as other regulatory, safety, and operational costs.

Booking Fees vary by trip and are based on various factors, including the trip’s origin city and distance.
