Just got an email from Uber stating that from tomorrow (Monday 26 March) they are abolishing estimated pricing in Melbourne.
Introducing upfront prices
From tomorrow, we’re rolling out upfront prices in Melbourne. This means instead of seeing a price range for your trip, you’ll see the exact price you’ll be charged up front- no surprises, no calculations required.
Need to make a few stops?
No worries! You can add up to three destinations before you request your ride.
If a trip changes significantly, so does the price
The trip price will be adjusted if estimated tolls/surcharges differ from actual, if your journey changes (for instance, you change your pick up or drop off location or make a detour), or if it takes much longer than estimated due to heavy traffic or other factors.
In these cases the price will reflect the actual time, distance and other rates applicable in Melbourne.
