Where PREHIRE considers that any trip you have completed did not comply with these Driver’s Terms, PREHIRE reserves the right to pay any refunds or compensation offered by PREHIRE to the affected Rider(s) against your portion of the fare paid by that rider.
9.1 Once you end the trip on the Driver’s App, Software calculate the actual trip fare on the driver’s app with the payment options (Cash / Card) to charge for the ride.
