If you see an unfamiliar charge from Uber on your credit card or bank account, review the information on this page.
Is it a pending charge?
A pending charge may be an authorization hold that will eventually drop off your account. It won’t ever be charged. We issue authorization holds as a way to better protect against fraud that may result from unauthorized card usage. You may see an authorization hold if you recently added a new payment method, or if you haven’t used Uber in a while.
Authorization holds are not applied when you use Uber Cash to pay for your trip. If you would like to avoid an authorization hold, you can use Uber Cash.
Is a friend or family member using your account?
Check with them if you can. They may have recently taken a trip and will recognize the charge you’re seeing.
Did you recently cancel a trip?
Check your trip history. Cancellation fees pay drivers for the time and effort they spend getting to your location. You can read more about the cancellation policy in your area.
