Traffic and rain is one of the underrated couple you will ever meet. Okay, let’s cut some slack. Tell me the last time you paid almost double the original taxi fare because of the never-ending relationship issues between rain and traffic?
Let us start with me. It’s yesterday evening. I have booked my ride from one of the prominent cab services ( you know it ;)) and the estimated fare was around Rs 150. But the magic amused me, I ended up paying Rs 200 Rs. Yeah, that’s right. Ever wondered why? That’s the surge fares you end up paying in times of heavy rain or huge traffic on your way.
What is Surge Pricing?
The concept of surge pricing is based on the economical principles of supply and demand. Other cab services adjust their fares to align with either a decrease in supply (drivers) or an increase in demand (passengers) during periods of excessive bookings, such as heavy traffic or unfavorable climatic conditions like heavy rain.
Their policy is Same distance is ≠ same fares!!
