At Gett we are all about simplicity! With a $10 flat charge anywhere between Houston to 59th St and super competitive pricing everywhere else in New York, we make every ride simple and enjoyable for our customers.
Where other car services don’t fix a thing, we do! This includes our peak time price. Since we have the best pricing in all of NYC, the $10 peak time charge was introduced to help manage our supply/demand. If you find yourself traveling during peak hours, a $10 flat charge may be added to your fare.
You will see the peak time charge before you confirm the booking and you will never be charged if you choose to cancel. Think of it like traveling on the MetroNorth or NJTransit. If you chose to travel during a peak period you pay a fixed higher amount for your ticket. If you are flexible on your travel time, just check the Gett app an hour later and the peak time will most likely be gone!
If you’ve booked a car with one of our competitors during a surge period you will know that the final price is completely variable and you could be stung with 2x or 3x the original fare you were quoted. That’s how an airport ride could become $200-$300. Unlike surge pricing which is a multiplier on an already unknown amount, our peak time pricing is a flat and predictable $10, and capped at $10 even if you go to the airport.
We are committed to keeping the Gett service professional, friendly and fantastic value for money so we plan to keep our peak time pricing to a minimum. Simple, predicable, flat pricing, DONE! Now go conquer the world!
