Dubai: One month after Uber announced an increase in its base fares, its competitor Careem has followed its footsteps.
Careem, the Dubai-based ride-hailing app, explained that its starting fare will vary on the time of day, which will start from Dh5.4 and can reach up to Dh6.7. The rates during peak hours was also raised from Dh8 to Dh10.6.
“For Careem Kids users, our pricing is reduced with the introduction of a surcharge, but more affordable overall fare,” said Careem in a statement.
The new fares were implemented in May 7, 2018.
“They will be reflected in the fare estimate as well as in the detailed receipt that you receive at the end of your ride,” said Careem.
