Payment/Manner of Charging
As a Rider, you understand and agree that a request and/or use of the Services will result in charges to you (“Charges”). Charges for Services include Fares and other applicable fees, tolls, surcharges, and taxes as set forth in the Zoom Ride app, plus any tips to the Driver that you elect to pay. Zoom Ride has the authority and reserves the right to determine and modify pricing by quoting you a price for a specific ride at the time you make a request. Pricing may vary based on the type of service you request as described in the Zoom Ride app. You are responsible for reviewing the applicable price quote within the Zoom Ride app and shall be responsible for all Charges incurred under your User account regardless of your awareness of such Charges or the amounts thereof. Zoom Ride may update any of the Charges for the Services at any time.
Zoom Ride will quote you a fare (“Fare”) when you make a request for transportation services (“Ride”). This Fare quote is still subject to modification or change until there is confirmation of the ride request. However, during your trip if you switch or change your destination, add or make multiple stops, or in any way cheat or attempt to abuse the Zoom Ride Platform, we have the option to cancel the Fare quoted to you and instead charge you a variable fare based on two factors — the time plus the distance of your ride.
Riders are at liberty to cancel any requested ride, but such a cancellation shall result in a fee.

In situations where a Driver reports that a Rider has taken action requiring the Repair or Cleaning of the Driver’s vehicle, the Rider agrees to pay a “Damage Fee” amounting up to $250. This amount will depend on the type of the damage (this will be determined by the sole discretion of Zoom Ride). We reserve the right, but we are not under any obligation to verify or otherwise require any type of documentation pertaining to the damages before the damage fee can be processed.
Please note during period of high demands for Service, our Fares are likely to increase. Based on this agreement, you accept and acknowledge that Charges may increase when there is a high demand for Services. We will do our best to inform you if any high demand multipliers are in effect at the time you make a request.
Please note that all payments or fees made are non-refundable and final for all payment made on this platform either you chose to terminate the usage of Zoom Ride app or for any other purpose except as determined by Zoom Ride.
Credit Card Authorization
When adding a new method of payment or every ride request, Zoom Ride may ask the authorization of the payment method you selected to check the veracity of the payment process, make sure the cost of the ride will be covered, and most importantly protect against illegal or unauthorized behavior.
Such authorization is not a charge. Keep in mind however that it may minimize your available credit by the authorization amount until the next processing cycle of your bank. In case the amount of our authorization will exceed the total amount on deposit in your account, it is possible that you may be subject to overdraft of NSF charges by the bank that issued your debit or prepaid card.
