Ola is a scam

Huco from Remuera

Ola Cab is a scam.
I ordered an Ola on Monday 1.30pm, which arrived within 10 minutes. The trip was from Remuera to Greenlane Clinic Centre, a distance of 4.7km. Ola has the offer of $5 if the distance is less than 5km.
I was charged on my credit card $15. In asking the driver who I could complain to, he responded that the company operates from India. Later that day I received an account email from OlaCab the trip was $11.37, Booking Fees $0.48, Ride Advantage Fee $0.52, a Total bill of $12.37.

Ola did not refund the difference between the $15 charged and the $12.37 bill emailed. My telephone call to Ola went nowhere.

My conclusion, it’s a scam. Be aware. Have you been disadvantaged?
