BOLT RIDE CANCELED - my experience

Recently, there has been a surge in discussions surrounding the topic of canceled rides on various ride-hailing platforms. One such incident involves a Bolt ride that was abruptly canceled by the driver, leaving the user in a state of confusion and concern. The experience shared by a user sheds light on the process that follows a canceled ride on the Bolt platform.

When a Bolt ride is canceled by the driver after the user has made a payment using Apple Pay or a credit card, it can be an unsettling experience. The user highlighted the dilemma of being charged for a service that was ultimately not provided. In this scenario, a pre-authorization booking fee is mentioned, which serves as a verification process to ensure the availability of funds in the user's account.

The user's account of the situation underscores the importance of swiftly addressing concerns related to canceled rides and refunds. In this case, the user mentioned that the refund process typically takes between five to 14 working days, depending on the user's bank. However, in a positive turn of events, the user reported that the refund for the canceled ride appeared in their bank account within an hour of the cancellation.

Here is a breakdown of the user's experience with the Bolt ride cancellation, along with the subsequent refund process:

  • The user ordered a Bolt taxi and made a payment via Apple Pay or a credit card.
  • The driver canceled the ride at the last moment, prompting concerns about the charged amount.
  • The user discovered that the money charged was a pre-authorization booking fee for verification purposes.
  • Upon checking the Bolt app for transaction details, the user found that the ride was priced at zero, indicating a refund for the canceled ride.
  • The refund amount was credited back to the user's bank account within approximately an hour.

This firsthand account serves as a valuable insight into the workings of ride-hailing refund processes and the importance of prompt resolution in such situations.
