Why does it cost more to get a ride if you reserve in advance?

I'm wondering why this is the case.

    Do you mean for Uber? Or what service?

        How did you know it was more? Did the price change? Maybe it depends on the time of day. I would wait to check till you get the trip receipt to compare, maybe they just overstated it for you when you originally requested.

    I'm not sure this is the case, but maybe it's because they don't know what the surge will be like at the time so they price higher just to be "safe"

      But aren't scheduled rides not guaranteed? Does that mean the price isn't guaranteed either?
