For those travelling to mainland China, Hong Kong and Taiwan, please download the “DiDi-Greater China” app, available at online stores of the three regions.
When you are in the Chinese mainland, after signing in to the app, head to ‘My Account,’ where you can change the DiDi-Greater China app’s language setting to English.

We also provide a separate app called “99POP” for our services in Brazil.

Rider - Fares and Fees

Getting a fare estimate

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

If you want to change the pick up point, please tap the pick up location in the bar on the top of the page then update the address.
Once pick up and drop off points have been entered, a fare estimate will be displayed under the vehicle icon.

How are trip fares calculated?

Fares are calculated by the following:

  • Base Fare: A flat fare charged once the rider enters the vehicle  and you start the trip.  
  • Distance Fare: A fare that is charged based on the distance travelled. This fare may vary depending on the city and the threshold distance. An extra charge may be applicable after a specific distance.
  • Time Fare: A fare charged for the duration of the trip (from pickup to drop off). This includes time your driver spent waiting for you and time spent in traffic. This includes the time your driver spent waiting for you and time spent in traffic, etc and may vary depending on the city.
  • Short Distance Fee: Applicable to trips that are less than 7 km (Brisbane and Geelong only).
  • GST / other relevant taxes. 

Other charges may include:

  • Tolls
  • State Government Transport Levy
  • CTP Insurance Premium 
  • Waiting Fees
  • Cancellation Fees
  • Changes to the Base Fare because of Dynamic Pricing periods

Please note: Trip fares vary by each State and Territory in Australia. Visit our Legal section for more information.

I was charged a Cleaning Fee by the driver

To ensure riders enjoy a safe and comfortable trip, drivers are encouraged to keep their vehicles regularly clean, sanitised and well maintained at all times. If a rider makes a mess, or litters and damages the vehicle in any way, they might need to compensate the driver for the financial loss suffered by their driver.

A Cleaning Fee will apply based on the evidence submitted by the driver. This includes photos of the mess / damage and a cleaning service receipt. If a Cleaning Fee is applied, the entire amount will be given to the driver. We’ll also provide you with details of the cleaning fee. If you believe that the Cleaning Fee amount is inaccurate, or wish to dispute the cleaning fee, you can submit an appeal.

 

Why does my trip fare include Dynamic Pricing?

In order to provide a better rider experience, Dynamic Pricing applies during periods of high demand. This means your trip fare may be slightly higher than usual to ensure there are enough drivers around during this time. You’ll be able to tell this by the multiplier that is added to the Base, Time, Waiting and Distance Fares. Fees such as levies and tolls are not subject to the Dynamic Pricing Multiplier. Please note: the Dynamic Pricing Multiplier is not fixed and can change according to  day, time and location.

To view / check the Dynamic Pricing:

1) Before a trip, view the Dynamic Pricing in Fare Estimate

2) After a trip, view the Dynamic Pricing in Fare Breakdown

My driver requested cash

DiDi is committed to promoting a safe and fair ridesharing community for everyone. If your driver requested cash for a trip, please let us know. Rest assured that these complaints are taken very seriously and will result in a thorough investigation.

If you’re ever in a situation in which you feel unsafe, harmed or have been injured, you can call emergency services on 000. During a trip, you can also call 000 by using our Emergency Button, or you can share your current location with your Trusted Contacts by using the Share My Trip feature.

Our DiDi Incident Response Team is also available 24/7, please contact us if you wish to report another incident. 

 

I can’t pay for the trip

We’re sorry to hear that you’re having trouble paying for your trip. We suggest checking the potential reasons below:

  • Your credit card or debit card details were entered incorrectly. If this is the case, simply update your credit card details by heading to Payment in the sidebar menu. 
  • Your credit card or debit card has expired. If this is the case, you will need to delete the expired card and add a new one.
  • There were insufficient funds in your account. If this is the case, you will need to deposit or transfer funds to your account. You may also add another card as a payment method.
  • Your credit card or debit card was issued outside Australia. If this is the case, you may need to contact your bank to authorise your transactions. Otherwise you’ll need to add a bank card that was issued in Australia. 
  • You previously reported your bank card as lost or stolen. If this is the case, your bank may have frozen your account or declined transactions. Please contact your bank to resolve this issue.

Please note: you will not be able to request a new trip if you haven’t paid for a previous trip. If the fare amount was deducted from your bank account but you’re still receiving the Payment Pending message, we suggest waiting a couple of days for the payment status to update.

 

Upfront Fares

Upfront Fares are available in all cities where DiDi operates and have been introduced to give riders certainty (up to a certain point) of the price they will pay for their trip. Please keep in mind that Upfront Fares don’t account for additional stops, change of destination or unexpected detours. If the actual trip varies significantly from the estimated Upfront Fare, the fare will be adjusted accordingly.

What is Split Fare?

The Split Fare feature allows you to share the cost of the fare evenly between you and your friends. To do so, simply send a Split Fare invitation after making a request, then kick back, relax and forget the days of talking about who pays next!

Dynamic Pricing

In order to provide a better rider experience, Dynamic Pricing applies during periods of high demand. This means your trip fare may be slightly higher than usual to ensure there are enough drivers around during this time. You’ll be able to tell this by the multiplier that is added to the Base, Time, Waiting and Distance Fares. Fees such as tolls are not subject to the Dynamic Pricing Multiplier.

Please note: the Dynamic Pricing Multiplier is not fixed and can change according to the day, time and location.

If you request a trip during a period of high demand, you’ll receive an in-app message to notify you of the Dynamic Pricing change. The Dynamic Pricing multiplier icon can also be found below your Fare Estimate and will be shown before you tap CONFIRM. 

To view / check the Dynamic Pricing:

1) Before a trip, view the Dynamic Pricing in Fare Estimate

2) After a trip, view the Dynamic Pricing in Fare Breakdown

 

Cancellation Policy

We’ve got Cancellations Fees in place to keep things fair for all users. Keep in mind that each city has its own cancellation rules. For details, please visit our Cancellation Policy available in the DiDi Rider app.

Please note: if you’re running a little late, we recommend contacting the driver to let them know.

 

Waiting Fee

Our per-minute Waiting Fee is applied for the time drivers spend waiting for riders. The Waiting Fee will only begin after your driver has waited for three (3) minutes at the pickup point. You will then be charged a Waiting Fee of $0.55 per minute. This will continue until your driver commences the trip. 

Please note: if your trip is cancelled, only the Cancellation Fee will apply (no Waiting Fee will apply). 

 

Toll Fees

If your trip passes through a toll, this amount will be automatically included to the Final Fare amount. Please note: tolls are not included in the fare displayed before confirming a request.

Rider - Payment

Error adding a payment method

If you are experiencing an error adding your payment details, try using another credit or debit card payment.

When adding it again, please make sure all the payment information is correct. If you’re still having trouble adding a payment method to your account, this could be due to the following:

  1. Insufficient funds
  2. Invalid transactions
  3. Lost / stolen card
  4. Expired card
  5. Invalid card number / CVV
  6. Suspected fraud

We recommend contacting your bank for further assistance.

 

Which payment methods can I use?

Currently, we support all valid Debit Cards, Credit Cards and PayPal. Please keep in mind that we do not support any cash payments.

Why was I charged before taking a trip?

In order to verify your payment method and secure your payment for a trip fare, we may place a temporary hold on your funds. This is known as an ‘Authorisation Hold’ and may be close to the Estimated Fare of your trip. 

Once a trip has been cancelled or completed, the Authorisation Hold amount will be released. The time it takes for this amount to return to your account depends on your financial institution. Please contact your bank for further information.

 

I have an unknown DiDi charge in my bank account

If you don’t recognise a payment in your bank account, please check if the following apply:

  1. Do you share your account with a partner, friend or family member?
  2. Try locating the payment in My Trips. In some cases, the amount could be for a trip or Cancellation Fee where the payment process was delayed.
  3. If the payment amount is pending and close to the Estimated Fare, it is most likely an Authorisation Hold. This amount is used to verify your payment method and protect you against fraud. Once a trip has been cancelled or completed, the Authorisation Hold amount will be released.

Please note: the time it takes for an Authorisation Hold to return to your account depends on your financial institution. Please contact your bank for further information.

 

I was charged twice for my trip

If you believe you were charged twice for your trip, please confirm your previous payment was successful. If the payment amount is pending and close to the Estimated Fare, it is most likely an Authorisation Hold. This amount is used to verify your payment method and protect you against fraud. Once a trip has been cancelled or completed, the Authorisation Hold amount will be released.

Please note: the Authorisation Hold will be returned to your account automatically and will be released within 3-7 business days depending on your financial institution. Please contact your bank for further information.

 

I paid a toll using cash

If your trip passes through a toll road, the toll amount will be added to your total trip fare. This means you cannot pay for a toll with cash as the toll amount will be automatically included to the total fare .

If you’ve paid your driver in cash, we’d be more than happy to help resolve the issue. Simply contact Customer Support, provide your trip details and we’ll review the situation for you.

 

How do I redeem a voucher / reward / promo code?

To redeem a promo code, simply follow the steps below:

  1. Tap the sidebar menu (upper-left corner of the homepage)
  2. Tap Promotions
  3. Enter the promo code and tap APPLY

  • You’ll need to have a payment method added in order to redeem any vouchers, promo codes and rewards.

I have a payment pending

If you have an outstanding payment, you’ll need to pay this amount before you request another trip. 

Please note: if you dispute a trip fare, our team will review the matter for you. During this time, the trip status will remain as ‘payment pending’ and you may not be able to request another trip.

 

Paying with a credit / debit card

To pay with a credit / debit card, you’ll need to add it as a payment method first. To do so, simply tap the menu icon at the top left corner of the app, then tap Payment > Add Payment Method > Credit / Debit Card. 

If you’re having trouble adding a payment method to your account, this could be due to the following:

  1. Insufficient funds
  2. Invalid transactions
  3. Lost / stolen card
  4. Expired card
  5. Invalid card number / CVV
  6. Suspected fraud

We recommend you contact your bank for further assistance.
