Careem, an app based car booking service, has announced an update in its fare pricing. Careem Increases Fare During Peak Hours in Karachi. Earlier, Careem has introduced peak time pricing in Lahore. According to Careem, this move will improve car availability for urgent users. Now customers have to pay more during peak hours. After and before the peak time, customers can avail the service at economical rate.
The company said in a recent statement.
“Given the massive demand during peak hours and our continued commitment to improving availability of cars when you need a ride the most, Peak Time Pricing will be applicable in Karachi,”

Careem will inform users before applying peak pricing to bookings and will only confirm them once you accept the revised rate. For example, a PKR200 trip under a peak rate of 1.2X converts into a PKR 240 fare (200×1.2:). This policy applies to both, NOW and LATER bookings starting October 7 – for all car types.
“While peak time pricing introduces increased fares during times of high demand in a particular area, it also improves availability for patrons who need a ride right there and then. Once the demand reduces, the trip fare reduces to its standard rate and patrons who can wait continue to benefit from our economical fares,”
