AmbiPalm Cancellations and Refunds

Cancellations can be frustrating for riders and driver partners alike, which is why the cancellation fee is in place to ensure that drivers are fairly compensated for their time when committing to a trip.

If you cancel within 5 minutes: You will not be charged a cancellation fee.

If you cancel after 5 minutes: The cancellation fee for a cancelled trip will automatically be charged to your next trip.

Before you cancel a trip, you will receive a notification to ensure that you are aware of the fee that will be added to your next trip.

After completing your next trip, the total fare that you will pay will include the fare as well as the previous trip’s cancellation fee.
If you have cancelled multiple trips consecutively, the cancellation fees for the multiple trips will accumulate as arrears and prevent any more requests from going through. In such cases, you’re expected to clear the arrears using an alternative payment method, such as a credit, debit card, etc. Once the payments in arrears have been cleared, you will be able to request an AmbiPalm as usual.

Cancellation Fees:
BLS: ₹50
OTHERS: ₹50
ALS: ₹80

If you feel that a cancellation fee has been unfairly charged, please use the in-app Help feature (from the menu located on the top left corner of the AmbiPalm app) to bring the particular trip to our attention.

Review my cancellation fee

You may be charged a cancellation fee if you cancel a trip after you're matched with a driver. These fees pay driver-partners for the time and effort they spend getting to your location.

Drivers are also able to cancel a ride request if they've waited a certain amount of time at the pickup location. You may be charged a cancellation fee, in this case, to reimburse your driver for their time.

AmbiPalm - Cancellation Policy – Driver

As an independent contractor, you are able to choose whether to make yourself available to take a trip request sent to you by AmbiPalm, or to cancel an allocated booking.

However we strongly recommend you go offline when you are not available to undertake trips. AmbiPalm reserves the right to enforce a breach of your contractual agreements or restrict access to the platform if you are found to be in breach of the cancellation policy.

Without limitation, AmbiPalm considers the following cancellation behaviours to be in breach of the Services Agreement:

- refusing to complete a trip for a rider based on their intended destination
- refusing to complete a trip for your rider based on the fare multiple applied by AmbiPalm's Dynamic Pricing
- refusing to complete a trip for your rider for any reason that would be in breach of relevant discrimination laws and the conditions set out in your Private Hire Driver licence.

Examples of evidence of committing or intending to commit such behaviour include:

- contacting a rider by phone and asking for the rider's destination before having arrived at the pick-up location.
- once aware of the destination, cancelling the ride, explicitly asking the rider to cancel the ride or behaving in an obstructive way to the natural flow of a trip in order to encourage the rider to cancel the trip.
- systematic and/or persistent cancellation of trips.
- refusing to complete a trip due to a discriminatory reasons, such as your rider's disability, gender, race or sexuality (for example)
