Careem, one of the region’s leading multi-service platforms, has reduced fares for GO, its value-focused car category, making it one of the best-priced rides in Qatar.
Customers can now book trips for as little as QAR 7.5, which is 10% lower than previous fares. This means that a trip from the Old Airport to Westbay will fall from QAR 15 to QAR 14. Savings on longer trips are even more attractive; a ride with Careem GO from Al Nasr to The Mall of Qatar is now just QAR 24, down from QAR 27.
The reduced fares are a win-win for both Customers and Captains, as Careem has decreased its margins to ensure that Captains earn more than 80% of the trip fare.
Commenting on the new pricing model, Khaled Nuseibeh, General Manager of Careem EMGCC, said:
“With demand for rides exceeding supply during peak hours, we saw a need for a more affordable alternative. By reducing fares for Careem GO, we are opening up our platform to more people across Qatar and providing more business for our hard-working Captains, thereby ensuring that everyone can get their day moving with Careem without compromising on experience or reliability.”
Careem offers Customers access to Qatar’s best restaurants through Careem Food, as well as a range of ride options including Careem GO, Careem Comfort, and Careem Max. Through the use of Artificial Intelligence and smart dispatching, the Careem app assigns Customers with the closest Captain according to wait time whilst taking into consideration variables such as time of day and traffic, for more effortless and personalized mobility and delivery. The Careem platform enables people to use multiple daily services with one set of payment details as well as pre-saved locations and preferences.
