Ola is a great way to get around, but what makes it even better is the multiple ways to pay. Not only can you pay with cash you can also use Ola Money, Ola Money Postpaid, and your credit or debit card.
Paying with cash couldn’t be easier. When you are booking your next ride, choose the Pick a Payment option. All you need to do is select Cash, and you’re good to go. You can see how much the fare will be before you ride if you want to see whether you have enough cash on hand or not by entering your destination location and clicking on Get Total Fare. This shows you what the total amount will be before you confirm your ride; in case you need to grab cash from an ATM or pay another way.

Enter your card number and hit Next. Continue entering your card details as the prompts come. Then click on Save Card. You will be charged a nominal fee to make sure the card details are correct.
