When you Request to book on Poparide, we place an authorization on your payment card to ensure you have the funds available for the price of the booking.
Your payment card is charged only if the driver approves your booking.
In some cases, your bank may show an authorization as a charge. In that case, you will be charged upfront.
When you book a trip with Instant book, you are immediately charged as the booking is final.
You will receive a full refund on your payment card if your booking expires, gets declined or you withdraw the booking.
