    Is there a cut-off time for instant bookings?  Ie. a minimum of 15 minutes prior to trip departure?

    Hi Robert, no, there isn't. People can book up to the last minute. Can you tell us more on what you're thinking of?

    As a driver, I was just thinking that it's nice to have a little time to plan.  Ie, will I put seats down and throw my skis in the back or put them on the roof rack.  Also, if a ride starts at 3pm, and I'm getting in the car at 2:59pm and get a booking asking for pickup, I then need to stop and communicate pickup location, etc.

    Hey Robert, we agree with all your points. We've launched Instant book as an open-ended system for starters and we'll adjust it with the feedback we get. Ideally, we'd like to give you flexibility to say "I'm happy to receive Instant bookings until x amount of time before the trip departs" so you have complete control over this.

    With regards to pick-up points, we're working on some designs to make that process more straightforward, here's an article with more info: https://support.poparide.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/115008332288-Feature-clearer-pickup-dropoff-locations

    Hi,

    I am considering using your service to find people to ride with me on my trips.  Could you please tell me what the fee is for getting passengers through this site.  Thanks!

    Hi Sharon,

    Poparide is completely free for drivers. It's passengers who are charged a 15% booking fee.

    You can find more information about how drivers are paid in our payout section at https://support.poparide.com/hc/en-us/articles/115004748187-Payouts

    Hope this helps, and if you have any further questions, you can reach us at support@poparide.com.
