toronto - It was eight wonderful kilometers, a Canadian thought after a short taxi ride Uber taxi platform. Sit back and relax, quietly home. Yet he got the fright of his life: the bill amounted to 12,249 euros. And he also paid.
Once recovered from the fright, it started gnawing anyway: how could 8 kilometers be so expensive? He posted his receipt on Instagram. A friend shared that on Twitter, and the story caught some news sites. Then the ball started to roll.
Uber initially did not want to give anything back, as the men write on social media, but after the media attention the company came over the bridge: it turned out to be a technical mistake, and the full amount was refunded.
