The Booking Fee is a variable fee added to every trip you take. Booking Fees help support regulatory, safety, and operational costs, such as commercial auto insurance and payment card fees.
This fee is variable because operational costs differ between trips, with trip distance and origin city being key drivers of these differences.
It is included in the price you see in the app before you request a ride.
You can get a price estimate in your city with more details on specific booking fee costs for you trip.
Time and distance pricing does not apply to Uber Reserve, which is paid as an upfront fare.
