There’s a new player in town with DiDi rideshare opening in Perth on November 4th.
The battle for your ride has now gone to a new level with Chinese ridesharing giant DiDi to enter the Perth market – putting further pressure on Uber and Ola.
But how does DiDi compare to Uber and Ola?
The great things for consumers when a new rideshare comes into the market – drivers of pre-existing rideshares are generally applying to become drivers of the new platforms as well. This means that there will instantly be enough driver volume to service users of the new platform.
Which is great news for early DiDi adopters. When comparing Uber and Ola prices to DiDi, DiDi is the cheapest rideshare in the market – providing its users with cheaper ridesharing fees. All while paying their drivers more per fare.
Uber, Ola and DiDi price comparison
As you can see from the table below – DiDi will be a cheaper ride across the board – making it the number one ridesharing option based on price.
|Charge per minute||$0.35||$0.35||$0.30|
|Charge per kilometre||$1.15||$1.15||$1.08 for the first 7kms, dropping to $0.98 after|
|Cancellation fee||$10.00||$10. Free if cancelled less than 5 minutes after driver accepts ride||$6.00|
