A cancellation fee is charged to compensate drivers for the time, effort, and fuel spent while trying to reach the pickup location.

You may be charged a cancellation fee if any one of the following occurs:

(a) a trip is cancelled after 3 (three) minutes or later from the time of acceptance of the ride by the driver or

(b) a driver cancels the booking after waiting at your pickup location for 5 minutes or more

However, the cancellation fee will not be charged if the driver is delayed in reaching the picking-up location by more than 5 minutes from the shown estimated time of arrival.


The cancellation fee amount may vary depending on your city, and the vehicle category selected.


A cancellation fee, if charged, will be added to the total bill amount of your next Ola ride.
