  1. If the Carlyft app user orders a transportation and the driver has confirmed the receipt of service then the transportation is considered pre-ordered.

  2. Cancelling the use of an ordered transportation occurs where the driver has received an order and the Carlyft app user cancels the service after the driver has received the notice.

  3. It is also considered to be a cancellation of the transportation service where the user of the Carlyft app or people whom the transportation was ordered are not present in the vehicle within 8  minutes as of the time when the driver notified them about the arrival of the vehicle in its destination.

  4. If you would like to cancel your booking request for a transportation service, you can do so at any time before you begin your journey by informing the driver through the Carlyft app. If you cancel your booking request more than 5 minutes after it was accepted by a driver, we may charge you an administration fee of $6 on behalf of the driver.

  5. We have the right to revoke the right to use the app if the user has cancelled or failed to use the booked transportation service on three successive instances in one 24 hour period. You will be notified about the number of cancellations and after cancelling or failing to use the transportation service the third time, Carlyft may cancel your access to the app. Access can be cancelled for up to six months. After that the user can reactivate his/her user account by contacting the local team via email.

  6. The transport service provider may ask you to pay a fee for cleaning a vehicle if you or your co-passengers negligently damage the vehicle or its furnishing (including by blemishing or staining the vehicle or causing the vehicle to smell). The transport service provider may ask you to pay an amount in excess of $50 for damage to the vehicle. If you do not pay the $50 charge, we may deduct it from your debit card or credit card.
