What if the driver makes me feel unsafe?

We take any unpleasant incidents on your trip very seriously and will treat such incidents with the utmost priority. Unprofessional behaviour such as inappropriate comments, physical contact, aggressive behaviour or any other misconducts are not acceptable at DiDi.

If you have been involved in an incident, please make sure you and all other involved parties are safe.

Please notify police or emergency on 000.

Following this, please contact our Support Team at help.rider@au.didiglobal.com. Informing us of your incident will allow us to take immediate action to ensure the DiDi platform remains safe for both riders and drivers. We will work closely in cooperation with all local authorities.

Getting a fare estimate

To view a fare estimate, type in your intended destination in the “Where to” box.

Cancelling a DiDi ride

To cancel your request, you can tap the ‘Cancel Trip’ button on the lower left of the screen.

You are unable to cancel the trip once the trip has started.

If you cancel the trip 5 minutes after your driver accepts the request, or after your driver arrives at the destination (but before the trip starts), you may be charged a $10 cancellation fee.

Once a trip has begun you can select the “Share Status” button on the homepage. You can select who to share your trip with, allowing them to track your trip live.

Rating a driver

A card will pop up asking you “How was your last trip?” once your trip is completed.
You can now rate your driver out of 5 stars. Your review will remain anonymous.

How are trip fares calculated?

The trip fare varies by each State and Territory in Australia. The trip fare is calculated in the relevant State and Territory. Visit our Legal section for more information.

DiDi has two available apps: DiDi-Greater China and DiDi-Rider.
