Careem bad service customer

Every time when I book the taxi they give me other rate and the end of the trip the rate is definitely another and always it is extra, also drivers they cancelled they trip by themselves but I always need to pay for that, what kind of game is it ? you don't respect your customers, and when I text to customer service of careem they always respond me late or respond and speaking with me like a kid, they acting as these problem is not big or doesn't important, what such of service is it ? omg, so unprofessional, I think there working just people who feel bored, they are not taking this job so serious, I decided to complain it to Government of Dubai.

Careem Taxi services Dubai

Everytime I book a taxi driver is unable to come to requested location. They always get to dispute over the chat, they try to overcharge if they make a mistake and have to go around. They do not read which location they are picking up from and they never know where they are going. They always ask and don’t understand instructions. They ask to use my internet and phone for google directions. The level of service is poor. Careem app gives incorrect information on destinations and pin location does not work accurately. It is always a headache and stressful experience.

Desired outcome: Quality checks of drivers and their knowledge of the city and landmarks. Procedures and guidelines introduced and mystery shopping exercised to assess quality of service. Improvement of the location within the app services

Dear Careem Team, I hope this email finds you well. I am writing to express my deep dissatisfaction with my most recent experience I had with Careem's delivery service.

Is Careem legit?

Our verdict: Complaints Board's thorough examination reveals Careem as a legitimate entity with notable strengths. Despite a 2% resolution rate on customer complaints, which invites a closer look, Careem stands out for its commitment to quality and security. Clients considering Careem should delve into its customer service record to gauge compatibility with their expectations.

Careem earns 91% level of Trustworthiness

Perfect Trust Endorsement: Careem achives 91% ligitmacy per Complaints Board. Highly recommended, yet always stay vigilant.

The age of Careem's domain suggests that they have had sufficient time to establish a reputation as a reliable source of information and services. This can provide reassurance to potential customers seeking quality products or services.

Help.careem.com has a valid SSL certificate, which indicates that the website is secure and trustworthy. Look for the padlock icon in the browser and the "https" prefix in the URL to confirm that the website is using SSL.

However ComplaintsBoard has detected that:

  • While Careem has a high level of trust, our investigation has revealed that the company's complaint resolution process is inadequate and ineffective. As a result, only 2% of 628 complaints are resolved. The support team may have poor customer service skills, lack of training, or not be well-equipped to handle customer complaints.
  • The presence of an iframe in Help.careem.com, iframes can be used to embed malicious content, such as phishing pages or ads that contain malware, so it's important to be cautious when interacting with websites that use iframes.
  • Help.careem.com has relatively low traffic compared to other websites, it could be due to a niche focus, but could also indicate a potential lack of traffic and popularity. The Help.careem.com may offer a niche product or service that is only of interest to a smaller audience.

Careem Food

We ordered a large 12" pizza, potato wedges, mango drinks but the food that came was rank and never seen anything as disgusting as that in my life before. As soon as we opened the box, the pizza smelled badly and was folded up. It was inedible and really a shame for my kids who were so hungry and delightfully waiting for a pizza. I'm very unhappy with the lack of response from Careem despite using their services like taxis and groceries multiple times.

Careem Taxi

It’s been the 3rd driver that stop and pretend to have a booking. Once the destination is shared to them they say that they have a booking a leave.

This is the 3rd driver picture that applies to this email.

You should seriously re enforce the way they work as it’s far from professional.

I haven’t mentioned the booking app that takes forever to deliver a driver. Usually the driver comes from miles away.

You charging a fee of aed 12 on booking and the service is not justified.

Careem Overpayment & fake promo/marketing

Assalamu alaikum Aimen,

Sorry, but first of all this compensation is not acceptable. I demand a full refund of the whole fare on my credit card! Because like I wrote to you already, the price estimate while booking the Hala and the final price was way off! And then the wrong fare and journey also by the driver. Wallah, I mean the WHOLE experience from start to finish was a nightmare. So complicated and full of nonsense!

Also I don't want anything in my wallet as I'm leaving Dubai tomorrow. So Careem is useless for me after that. Useless. I will have no use of Careem. You understand?

Also I have tried to apply many different discount codes. They don't work! Instead of saying to me I did not apply the discount. You should explain to me how I should apply it, if I maybe, maybe I applied it wrongfully. But internet wasn't invented yesterday and I am not computer or smartphone illiterate. Okay?

So please, with respect, refund me, full refund on my credit card which I used to pay for the unsatisfactory ride service and schalas I will delete this account & app and never download it again. Thank you, maat salama!

P.s. Also please forward this to your manager immediately. Because he/she needs to know, this is NOT how you treat guests. Tourists coming to your country for holiday and you give them unnecessary headache. Using Careem has been a horrible experience, full with fake marketing! I will attach some files as well.

1. https://www.halaride.com/offer-terms/

2. Attached file. WELCOME40 promo code that doesn't work. I tried it so many times, even on different types of rides, not only Hala. Same for TRIP30. SAME for all of the ones on the link above.

See attached files for more info.

Desired outcome: Full refund

Careem Double charge

The last experience with Careem made me think to stop using their service at all! I'm in Dubai for about 7 years and use taxi quite often and even left tips for captains.

I ordered regular Hala taxi from Zulekha hospital (Al Nahda) to Garhoud hospital on 13 October at about 4:45 pm and they charged me 80 aed! Though in the same day I used their service only in the opposite direction and trip cost 35 aed only!

I had been waiting for the taxi driver about 30 minutes! There was no traffic in that area, it's a lie! I had been walking a long distance in that area about 15 min before the order and after captain arrived all the roads were still totally free.

The driver Umar Farooq was friendly and arrived on his personal car! I don't know why? Without meter and camera in the car!?! Probably he started the meter when I ordered the taxi and waiting for him, I don't know.

The receipt details: starting 10.60, distance 26.82, waiting 3.90,peak surcharge 28.92, Dubai surcharge 5.00, Tollgate 4.00. Total 79.24 aed?!

Some other night on 9 February, at 5:30 pm in peak hour! I ordered Careem economy class from Expo Centre in other Emirate Sharjah! to the same location Garhoud hospital, also 10km and they charged me less - 60 aed only!

Their helpline center is helpless, unprofessional and they don't care about customers, they just keep saying about peak hours, but it's a lie!

Terrible, unprofessional service, very often cars are very stinky, drivers talk to their friends via video while driving, don't know English and Dubai at all, but the most important you must pay them as much as you can!

Desired outcome: Please refund 40 aed! And apologize for this situation.

Careem Account issue

To whom it may concern,

My name is Gaelle, I'm a Careem Customer and I have an account on the App, I've been using it since one year,

I booked yesterday a ride from Elite 10 Sports City to US consulate and the payment was supposed to go through online process but accidentally it didn’t happen despite the confirmation of the payment receipt by the driver. (The name of the driver was Mujahid)

However, I was surprised by blocking my account when I was trying to book the way back home and I'm addressing to you this complaint as I'm willing to pay the fees subject of above ride which are around 90 AED and request hereby to kindly remove the block,

Looking forward to hearing back from you,

Gaelle

Desired outcome: I'd appreciate a response knowing that I'm trying to contact you since yesterday and no one is responding

Careem Fraud/Scam

Last night i booked a ride from Emporium mall to Madina Colony. The rider shown on the app had silver wagon R but the guy who came to pick me up had honda city silver colour. He told me that ur go saver ride wasnt available so it shifted to premium. You have to pay the premium fare but don’t worry the remaining amount will be transferred to ur wallet. I agreed coz of my previous experience with careem. I had no idea that m about to get scamed. When we reached the destination he showed me fare of around 4125PKR. I was shocked to see this huge amount but anyways i paid him 4500 coz i had mo change and he told me that u will get the amount back in ur wallet. Now the rider phone number is off and my money is gona. I want my money back now. I hold careem responsible for hiring fraudsters as captains looting innocent passengers.

My fare was 766. I want the remaining 3734PKR back in my account.

Careem Overcharge Careem

I used Careem on my trip tu Dubai. I took a ride from the same journey twice, one costed me 40ead and the second was estimated in 45. What was my surprise when they charged me 10 times more. It was in June , I’ve being contacting Careem since in multiple Chanel’s but I’ve only received multiples empty promises that the money would be returned.

They gave first 3 weeks deadline, and after, more 4 weeks. Now they just ignore my emails.

Careem has no respect with female costumers, as their contact channel is always rude with me. I’m very disappointed

Desired outcome: Return the money back asap.
