UBER takes longer rides and charges you extra? Here’s how to get a REFUND


Uber taxi service has helped people a lot in getting around the city and even in interstate travel. Until recently, Uber passengers were annoyed because drivers canceled the ride as soon as they knew the passenger’s drop-off location.

However, one complaint still remains unresolved ‘How do you get a refund from Uber if your fare goes up at the end of the ride?’ This has been the concern of runners for some time now.
