This story is about how I made a mistake by booking OLA cabs thinking that I will utilize my OLA money, get back home from one part of delhi to other.

It was around 9pm I finished my dinner at Pizza hut with my friend. I opened OLA app on my iPhone and booked a cab, it was booked and then it said it will take 3 minutes to reach.

After 5 minutes I looked at the app as the driver did not called me or reached, the app showed that driver is moving in opposite direction then coming towards me. This was a surprize, then in next 1 minute he started the ride without me. At this point of time I was surprised and also angry to see what the hell was happening.

I tried calling the driver before this, he never picked up and after the ride is started, I did not had any option to call him from the app after ride started.

Rest of what happened is in the video below, I hope OLA do something in this case as I am not the only person with whom this has happened.

PS: I have only received an email from OLA and they say they will take action, nothing has happened. It is almost more than 1 day now, since this has happened to me. This incident happened with me on 9th June around 9 PM.

  1. You could have tansferred ola money from ur wallet to some other number ? It could have saved money.
    But I agree that ola is not a good cab company..
    Ola is doing unethical work..
    They dont have any ethics. There customer support are worst.

  2. I have seen drivers using Uber and Ola app together for same ride. This way they get more incentives.

    An Ola driver told me to pay Rs 50 less than whatever bill comes up (he asked to pay in cash of course) and then he asked me to book ride on Uber too.

    This way he could get double money incentive.
