Terms and Conditions
These terms of service constitute a legally binding agreement (the “Agreement”) between you and Yugo Limited. (“Yugo,” “we,” “us” or “our”) governing your use of the Yugo application, website, and technology platform (collectively, the “Yugo Platform”).
By entering into to this Agreement, and/or by using or accessing the Yugo platform you expressly acknowledge that you understand this Agreement and accept all of its terms. If you do not agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of this Agreement, you may not use or access the Yugo Platform.
1. The Yugo Platform
YUGO DOES NOT PROVIDE TRANSPORTATION SERVICES, AND IS NOT A TRANSPORTATION CARRIER. The Yugo Platform provides a marketplace where persons who seek transportation to certain destinations (“Passengers”) can be matched with persons driving to or through those destinations (“Partners”). Partners and Passengers are collectively referred to herein as “Users,” and each User shall create a User account that enables access to the Yugo Platform. Each person may only create one User account, and Yugo reserves the right to shut down any additional accounts. As a User, you authorize Yugo to match you with a Partner or User based on factors such as your location, the estimated time to pick up, your destination, user preferences, and platform efficiency, and to cancel an existing match and rematch based on the same considerations. For purposes of this Agreement, the driving services provided by Partners to Users that are matched through the Platform shall be referred to collectively as the “Services”. Any decision by a User to offer or accept Services is a decision made in such User’s sole discretion. Each transportation Service provided by a Partner to a User shall constitute a separate agreement between such persons.
2. Modification to the Agreement
In the event Yugo modifies the terms and conditions of this Agreement, such modifications shall be binding on you only upon your acceptance of the modified Agreement. Yugo reserves the right to modify any information referenced in the hyperlinks from this Agreement from time to time, and such modifications shall become effective upon posting. Continued use of the Yugo Platform or Services after any such changes shall constitute your consent to such changes.
The Yugo Platform may only be used by individuals who can form legally binding contracts under applicable law. The Yugo Platform is not available to children (persons under the age of 18) or Users who have had their User account temporarily or permanently deactivated. By becoming a User, you represent and warrant that you are at least 18 years old and that you have the right, authority and capacity to enter into and abide by the terms and conditions of this Agreement. You may not allow other persons to use your User account, and you agree that you are the sole authorized user of your account.
As a User, you understand that request or use of the Services may result in charges to you (“Charges”). Charges include Fares and other applicable fees, surcharges, and taxes, plus any tips to the Partner that you elect to pay. Yugo has the authority and reserves the right to determine and modify pricing by posting applicable pricing terms on the Yugo Platform or quoting you a price for a specific ride at the time you make a request. Pricing may vary based on the type of service you request (e.g., standard, Luxury, premium etc.) as described on the Yugo Platform. You are responsible for reviewing the applicable price quote within the Yugo app and shall be responsible for all Charges incurred under your User account regardless of your awareness of such Charges or the amounts thereof.
There are two types of fares: Estimated and Fixed.
Estimated Fares. Estimated fares consist of a base charge and incremental charges based on the duration and distance of your ride. For particularly short rides, minimum fares may apply. The estimated fare quoted prior a particular booking and the final fare at the end of the trip may vary. The final fare at the end of the trip is dependent on the actual distance travelled and the actual time taken for the trip. Please note that we use GPS data from your Partner’s phone to calculate the distance traveled on your ride. We cannot guarantee the availability or accuracy of GPS data. If we lose signal we will calculate time and distance using available data from your ride.
Fixed Fares. In some cases (i.e, Airport Transfers) Yugo may quote you a Fixed Fare at the time of your request. The quote is subject to change until the ride request is confirmed. If during your ride you change your destination, make multiple stops, or attempt to abuse the Yugo Platform, we may cancel the fare quoted and charge you a Estimated fare based on the time and distance of your ride. Yugo does not guarantee that the fixed fare price will be equal to a Estimated fare for the same ride.
Fees and Other Charges.
Service Fee. You may be charged a “Service Fee” for each ride.
Prime Time.. At times of high demand for Services (“Prime Time”) you acknowledge that Charges may increase substantially. For all rides with an Estimated fare, we will use reasonable efforts to inform you of any Prime Time multipliers in effect at the time of your request. For Fixed fares we may factor in the Prime Time multiplier into the quoted price of the ride.
Cancellation Fee. After requesting a ride you may cancel it through the app, but note that in certain cases a cancellation fee may apply. You may also be charged if you fail to show up after requesting a ride. Please check out our FAQ section to learn more about Yugo’s cancellation policy, including applicable fees.
Damage Fee.. If a Partner reports that you have materially damaged the Partner's vehicle, you agree to pay a “Damage Fee” of up to Rs10,000 depending on the extent of the damage (as determined by the Partner in its sole discretion), towards vehicle repair or cleaning. Yugo reserves the right (but is not obligated) to verify or otherwise require documentation of damages prior.
Other Charges.. Other fee and surcharges may apply to your ride, including: actual or anticipated airport fees, payment processing fees etc. In addition, where required by law Yugo will collect applicable taxes.
Tips.. Following a ride, you may elect to tip your Partner in cash or through the Yugo application. Any tips will be provided entirely to the applicable Partner.
Facilitation of Charges. All Charges are facilitated through a third-party payment processing service (e.g., MiGS Payment Gateway and MCB Juice by Mauritius Commercial Bank). Yugo may replace its third-party payment processing services without notice to you. Charges shall only be made through the Yugo Platform. Your payment of Charges to Yugo satisfies your payment obligation for your use of the Yugo Platform and Services.
No Refunds. All Charges are non-refundable. This no-refund policy shall apply at all times regardless of your decision to terminate usage of the Yugo Platform, any disruption to the Yugo Platform or Services, or any other reason whatsoever.
Coupons/ Promo codes. You may receive coupons/ Promo codes that you can apply toward payment of certain Charges upon completion of a Ride. Coupons are only valid for use on the Yugo Platform, and are not transferable or redeemable for cash except as required by law. Coupons cannot be combined, and if the cost of your ride exceeds the applicable credit or discount value we will charge your payment method on file for the outstanding cost of the Ride. For Fixed or Estimated fares, Yugo may deduct the amount attributable to the Service Fee or Other Charges before application of the coupon. If you split payment for a Ride with another User, your coupon will only apply to your portion of the Charges. Additional restrictions on coupons may apply as communicated to you in a relevant promotion or by clicking on the relevant coupon within the Promotions section of the Yugo App.
Credit Card Authorization/ Charge. Currently, Yugo does not seek any authorization/ charge on your credit card for any booking you make. Yugo does not require you to make an advance payment for a booking. The payments are due once the trip has ended and the final fare displayed.
Yugo In-app Wallet – The Yugo Platform provides a facility for Users to add funds into their Yugo wallet which can be used for any Service within the Yugo Platform. The funds once added cannot be withdrawn or refunded to the User. Funds in your Yugo Platform Wallet are not transferrable by any means or form.
If you are a Partner, you will receive payment for your provision of Services pursuant to the terms of the Partner Addendum, which shall form part of this Agreement between you and Yugo. The Partner Addendum is available in the Partner dashboard when you log into your account.
6. Yugo Communications
