InDrive in Nigeria: How to Negotiate Cab Fare with Your Driver

As inflation and fuel price continue to increase in the country, ride-hailing customers are gradually turning to alternative ride-hailing platforms that offer cheaper fares and allow them to negotiate them. Uber and Bolt have, for years, dominated the rid-hailing space in Nigeria, but in recent times, drivers have complained of how fares no longer cover their cost of operation, let alone make a profit. Riders, on the other hand, have complained about how expensive trips have become.

Ride-hailing platforms like InDrive are trying out a different strategy in solving this challenge. InDrive in Nigeria lets its users negotiate cab fares with their drivers. This negotiation option means both the driver and the rider can arrive at a price that works for both parties. If you’re looking for alternatives to Bolt and Uber, InDrive is an alternative in Nigeria that you should consider.
