I am user for both Ola and Uber. I was damn loyal to Ola initially, recommending people to book Ola rather than Uber because of Micro.
However when Uber started upfront fares, i totally switched to Uber. From that day, i have only used Ola when there is surge in Uber(but found out the surge is there in Ola as well )
Few things i found out after Uber implemented Upfront fares:
* Even though UberGo is Rs.8/km, the actual ride is always less than Ola Micro. Have experienced it personally. I take Uber from home to office and is charged Rs. 125(Average). In the same route, i am charged Rs. 140 in Ola Micro ( Silently, they increased the base fare from Rs.45 to 55)
* Even though initially when Uber calculated my fare, if i follow the route Uber gave and there is traffic on the way which initally wasn't, Uber does not charge extra!! while for every minute, you are billed in Ola
Although, one downfall is that, fare does not reduce if there is no traffic or if i zoom through through roads.
What are your experiences with upfront fares and which one do you prefer? Upfront or Real-time?
