You are responsible for ensuring that the mobile number has been correctly entered. You will also be required to select the top up amount to be credited to the mobile number.

Please note that not all features are available in each market and may be subject to change. In addition, Careem may, at its discretion at any time, offer additional payment features or restrict access to one or more of the previously mentioned payment features only to Users that have successfully verified their identity as required by anti-money laundering, counter-terrorism financing laws and “know your customer” laws and regulations (“Enhanced Wallet Services”). The availability and use of such Enhanced Wallet Services is also subject to your acceptance of the related terms and conditions, which supplement this Agreement. In case of any discrepancy between this Agreement and the Enhanced Wallet Services terms and conditions, the Enhanced Wallet Services terms and conditions will prevail.
The use of certain CPay features may be subject to: Careem Fees (as advertised on the Careem Platform); and limits in respect of the number or value of transactions you are entitled to do. Careem Fees and limits may be modified by Careem from time to time.
If you owe us any money for any reason (including in respect of other Services unrelated to CPay), we may set off amounts you hold with us in your User Account against the amounts you owe Careem. We will only exercise this right where we consider it is reasonable to do so and, where practicable, once we have given you notice in advance.
By “Careem Credit”, we mean the prepaid balance which is represented electronically, denominated in your local currency and attributed to your User Account. Such Careem Credit will be credited to your User Account by Careem upon collection or receipt of funds and may be reloaded with additional value by you (subject to any limits imposed by Careem or by law and as may be notified to you from time to time) as described in the section below. You can use your Careem Credit to pay for Services, in which case Careem and/or a regulated financial institution or payment system providerpartner will satisfy and settle the payment obligation to the relevant third party payee up to the Careem Credit balance reflected in your User account. Unless you are a User of Enhanced Wallet Services, Careem Credit is not redeemable for cash.
Loading Careem Credit
As part of your User Account you may load Careem Credit by any one or more of the following payment methods (where offered by Careem from time to time):
(i) by cash paid to authorised agents, third party providers or Captain (where enabled by Careem and permitted by law);
(ii) debit card;
(iii) credit card;
(iv) gift card (where available and permitted by law); or redeemable for cash.
(v) any other payment method made available by Careem from time to time
(each a ‘Payment Method’)
You can reload Careem Credits at any time before the start of a Service (e.g. taking a ride, ordering food or ordering groceries) by clicking on the CPay button and then the ‘+’ ic on under the ‘available credit’ banner in the CPay section of your User Account’. If you want to add a new Payment Method you must do so before using a Service.
You may also be able to add alternative payment methods to reload Careem Credits through the CPay button and can do this by going to ‘Manage’ in ‘CARDS AND ACCOUNTS’ clicking the ‘Add card or bank account’ button and following the steps set out.
By selecting a particular Payment Method, you acknowledge that you are agreeing to the terms of service of Careem’s payment processing partners and the financial institution or payment service provider who has issued your selected Payment Method. You further agree that you will bear the cost or changes of any fees imposed by such payment processing partners or financial institutions in connection with your selected Payment Method.
Careem may in its sole and absolute discretion choose to refuse a request to reload Careem Credit, including (without limitation) where reloading would result in the aggregate value stored in your User Account exceeding any value permitted by prevailing laws and regulations
Careem (in its sole and absolute discretion) may, at any time (including at the time of completing a transaction), notify you via the Careem Platform that it has imposed a maximum amount by which you may reload or inform you that you have reached the limit on the number of times you may reload credits within a specified period.
You may load and hold Careem Credit only in the currency of the country to which your User Account is linked based on the mobile number associated to your User Account (“Base Currency”), and the Base Currency cannot be changed at a later date. If you top-up your User Account or pay for Services using a card denominated in a currency other than the Base Currency or the currency in which the relevant Services are charged (as the case may be), you may be subject to additional foreign exchange fees and rates, for which Careem accepts no liability and is unable to give you forewarning. If you wish to use Careem Credit to make payments in another currency, including payments using a combination of the balance in your User Account and a card, Careem will convert the foreign currency amount due by you into your Base Currency using a conventional exchange rate set by Careem from time to time. Such exchange rate may be different from the official exchange rate in effect at the relevant time, and you will be deemed to have accepted it by confirming the payment transaction.
By loading Careem Credit you acknowledge and agree that you are not depositing money with Careem. Careem may hold any funds received from you with such other facilities or third parties as Careem considers appropriate, either separately or together with other property, and use any such funds as it sees fit for its own purposes without retaining possession and/or control of a like amount of money or other assets for your benefit. Your rights in relation to any such funds are limited to a contractual obligation for Careem to provide an equivalent amount in Careem Credit for your use in connection with the Services.
Through your use of other third party websites and applications you may have access to the CPay Checkout product. CPay Checkout makes it easier for Off-App Merchants to collect payments for services or products that they provide to you. CPay Checkout enables you to use your existing card-on-file to complete your purchase on the Off-App Merchant site.
Using CPay Checkout does not change anything about the relationship you have with that Off-App Merchant or your card provider or bank in terms of your payment for the goods, services, or products on the Off-App Merchants or with your bank or card provider.
CPay Checkout including information made available, as well as any content, software, materials or other functions offered to you are provided ‘as is’ and ‘as available’. Careem does not warrant that availability of CPay Checkout shall be uninterrupted and error free. Careem is not responsible for service interruptions or failures that may affect, receipt, processing, or completion of payment unless such interruption has been caused solely by Careem. In addition, Careem makes no representation or warranty in relation to your use of CPay Checkout and, to the fullest extent permissible by law, Careem disclaims any liability with respect to fitness for purpose, merchantability, and non-infringement.
You are responsible for the purchase you make using CPay Checkout and the Off-App Merchant is responsible for supplying you with the goods, services, or products you have elected to purchase through their site. If there is an issue with the goods, services, or products you have purchased using CPay Checkout please get in touch, directly, with the Off-App Merchant. Any returns, exchanges, refunds are subject to the policy of the merchant you have purchased from. Careem is not responsible for processing or managing refunds, chargebacks or other issues relating to your purchase. Careem is not subject to and does not have control over the policies of any Off-App Merchants and is not responsible for the actions of Off-App Merchants.
You agree to notify Careem immediately upon becoming aware of any fraudulent activity perpetrated through your User Account. Notifications may be made via the Careem Platform or by email at email@example.com You are solely responsible for informing your financial institution or payment services provider of any fraud related to a payment card saved in your User Account.
You agree that Careem is not responsible for the unauthorized use of your User Account. Careem reserves the right (in its sole and absolute discretion) to suspend or void any transaction, where we suspect that the transaction is related to fraudulent, unlawful, illegal, suspicious or criminal activity or that you are otherwise in violation of this Agreement.
If we are aware or have reason to believe that your User Account is being used in an unauthorized, unlawful, improper or fraudulent manner or for criminal activities (or has been so used previously), or you do not comply with applicable laws and regulations or any of the conditions relating to the use of the Services including this Agreement, Careem may at its sole discretion take certain actions against you, including but not limited to: (i) suspending or terminating your right to use the User Account, certain products, the Careem Platform (or certain parts of it), (ii) blocking or clawing back any available balance in your User Account; (iii) legal action against you (including claim for the cost of the action), and/or (iv) disclosure of such information to law enforcement authorities as we feel is necessary.
Chargebacks, refunds and disputes
When you use a card for payment through your User Account the issuer of that card is responsible for the settlement of the transaction. You acknowledge that transaction errors relating to such transactions may result in a reversal of the transaction, fees, claims, penalty or chargeback from the financial institution or payment services provider that has issued the payment card. You acknowledge that the financial institution or payment services provider which issues or supports the designated payment method you have linked to the wallet determines any amount reversed, returned or charged back. Careem is bound to follow the instructions of that financial institution or payments services provider. You agree that you will be responsible for resolving any disputes with the financial institution which has issued your card.
If, notwithstanding the above, you have a complaint in relation to Cpay or any transactions you have made using your User Account please contact us here. Any dispute must be submitted within 90 days of the transaction in dispute. We may ask for information about the disputed transaction but please note that we will never ask you for any security information about your User Account.
Careem reserves the right to investigate the circumstances of each complaint and determine the most appropriate course of action, including: a) declining your application for any or all of the services, b) terminating any or all of the services, c) reversing any relevant transaction, d) withholding funds from you or restricting your access to your User Account, or e) doing anything else we reasonably consider necessary.
We will inform you of any such actions we take unless we have reasonable belief that we are prevented from doing so by law or regulation or we believe that doing so would compromise our anti-fraud or security measures.
You acknowledge that Careem is under no obligation to recall funds and will not be liable if it is unable to partially or fully recall the funds subject to the dispute. You may not be eligible to receive a refund if you failed to keep the security details relating to your card safe or are a victim of financial fraud, even if the transaction was done by third parties without your knowledge or permission.
By becoming a User you are part of the Careem Loyalty Program (the "Loyalty Program ") in those markets where the Loyalty Program is available. Users will accrue points through using the Careem Platform to access Services provided by the third party service providers and may have access to a number of services, ways to support their local community, and benefits (“Rewards”) depending upon a given tier status (and relevant availability in any given market).
Users can earn or maintain tier status based on their usage of the Careem Platform in any calendar month. Once a User attains a tier level, it will remain in effect for 2 consecutive months. With respect to the expiry of points earned pursuant to the Loyalty Program, each calendar year consists of 2 reward periods: from January 1st to June 30th and from July 1st to December 31st (each a “Reward Period”) and any points earned in one Reward Period will expire automatically at the end of the following Reward Period.
Rewards are offered at the sole discretion of Careem and may be varied from time to time. Rewards and participating partners may differ from market to market and may be added or removed at the sole discretion of Careem. You may redeem points in exchange for Rewards or Donations (as applicable) at any time as indicated on the App. Where you redeem points Careem shall settle the equivalent or agreed amount (if applicable) with the participating partner and cancel its liability to you for the same. By redeeming Rewards you confirm that you agree to the terms of the Loyalty Program.
Careem has the right to add, change, limit, modify or cancel Loyalty Program rules, regulations, rules for earning and redeeming Rewards points, rewards, reward levels, redemption levels, processes, benefits, tier statuses, and Loyalty Program partners without notice, even though such changes may affect the member’s tier status, the value of points already accumulated, the ability to use accumulated points, or the ability to obtain certain rewards.
Careem may, among other things: (1) increase or decrease the number of points received for a given action or amount spent or the number of points required for a reward; (2) withdraw, limit, modify, or cancel any reward; (3) add blackout dates, limit availability for any reward, or otherwise restrict the continued availability of rewards; (4) change program benefits served by Rewards or its partners, conditions of participation, rules for earning, redeeming, retaining, or forfeiting points, or rules governing the use of rewards; (5) change or cancel rewards; and (6) change the rules governing the tier statuses, including but not limited to: rules to reach a tier status, duration and expiry rules of the tier status, benefits granted by reaching a given tier status.
Careem makes no warranties or representations, either expressed or implied, and expressly disclaim all liability (including consequential damages) with respect to type, timeliness, cost, quality or fitness of goods or services provided through the Loyalty Program.
If any participating Rewards partner improperly denies a User an accrual or benefit, the liability of Careem shall be limited to the equivalent value, in Rewards points, of that accrual or benefit as determined solely by Careem.
The Loyalty Program has no predetermined termination date and may continue until such time as Careem decides to terminate the Loyalty Program, at any time, with or without notice. If the Loyalty Program is terminated, all unredeemed points or tier status benefits shall be forfeited without any obligation or liability, no award claims or tier status benefits shall be honoured after the conclusion of any notice period.
Careem reserves the right to cancel a User’s access to the Loyalty Program and revoke any and all unredeemed Careem Rewards points collected by any Member who appears to be using the Loyalty Program in a manner inconsistent with the terms or intent of the Loyalty Program or any portion thereof. For reasons that include, but are not limited to: 1) violation of these terms and conditions; 2) misrepresentation of any information or any misuse of this Loyalty Program; 3) violation of any national, state or local law or regulation in connection with the use of this Loyalty Program; 4) commission of fraud or abuse involving any portion of this Loyalty Program ; or 5) action, in any other way, to the detriment of the Loyalty Program or any of its stakeholders; all as may be determined by Careem in its sole discretion.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, Loyalty Program violations, fraud or abuse in relation to rewards points and credit, tier status or reward usage is subject to appropriate administrative and/or legal action by appropriate governmental authorities and/or by Careem including, without limitation, the forfeiture of all point transfers, rewards, tier status or award issued pursuant to point redemptions and any accrued points in your account, as well as cancellation of the account.
The earning and redeeming of Rewards points are subject to all applicable local laws and regulations and are offered in good faith, however they may not be available or are subject to change if prohibited or restricted by applicable law or regulation.
Separate terms and conditions may apply to your reservation, purchase of goods and services, or rewards that you select. Please read these separate terms and conditions carefully. You agree to abide by the terms and conditions of purchase imposed by any supplier with whom you elect to deal. You understand that any violation of any such supplier’s rules and restrictions may result in your being denied access to the applicable product or services, in your forfeiting any monies paid for such product or service.
Careem Plus Program
As a User, you may be eligible to enroll in the Careem Plus Program (“Plus Program”), which is a subscription program of one or more subscription plans (each a “Subscription Plan”) through which you may access benefits (“Benefits”) that you can avail through the Careem Platform and/or when purchasing goods or services from third parties (“Plus Partners”).
The Benefits will either be automatically applied when making a transaction through the Careem Platform or you may be required to carry out extra steps to make use of a Benefit, which steps will be communicated to you by Careem from time to time.
The availability of Benefits is subject to all applicable local laws and regulations and are offered in good faith, however they may not be available and are subject to change if prohibited or restricted by applicable law or regulation.
Each Benefit may have additional terms or limitations. When redeeming Benefits made available by a Plus Partner, separate terms and conditions may apply to your purchase of goods and services from the Plus Partner. Please read these separate terms and conditions carefully. You agree to abide by the terms and conditions of purchase imposed by any Plus Partner you elect to deal with. You understand that any violation of any such Benefits Partner’s rules and restrictions may result in your being denied access to the applicable product or services, in your forfeiting any monies paid for such product or service.
You may be given an option to enroll in the Plus Program through in-app messaging or other digital channels (“Offer”). Each Offer may include important corresponding terms, such as the type of Benefits included in a Subscription Plan, the cost of the Renewal Subscription (“the Subscription Charge”) and the billing interval (“Billing Cycle”). It is your responsibility to ensure that you have reviewed the Offer terms before you accept and purchase a Subscription.
When you buy a Subscription Plan, you will be charged the Subscription Charge for your first Billing Cycle on the date of purchase, which activates the Benefits identified in the Offer. Careem may elect to provide you with a free trial to the Plus Program or other promotional subscriptions in which case you will be charged the Subscription Charge at the end of the trial period. If you do not wish to be charged the Subscription Charge, you must cancel the trial or promotional subscription before the end of the trial or promotional subscription. Eligibility for a free trial or promotional subscription is determined by Careem at its sole discretion.
AUTOMATICALLY (AND WITHOUT PRIOR NOTICE TO THE EXTENT ALLOWED AT LAW), YOUR SUBSCRIPTION PLAN WILL RENEW AT THE BEGINNING OF EACH BILLING CYCLE, AND THE SUBSCRIPTION PRICE WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY CHARGED TO A PAYMENT METHOD AVAILABLE IN CPAY . If there are insufficient funds or the payment methods in CPay in your User Account are declined, Careem will prompt you for a new payment method but reserves the right to terminate any unpaid Subscription Plan periods without further charges to you. Any paid Subscription Charges are non-refundable and non-transferable.
Where VAT (or equivalent taxes) is in force when you buy a Subscription Plan, the Subscription Charges shall be inclusive of VAT. Where there is a future change in the VAT rate, Careem may at its discretion increase/decrease as applicable the Subscription Charge. Where VAT (or equivalent taxes) is not in force when you buy a Subscription Plan, the Subscription Charges shall be exclusive of VAT and if VAT (or equivalent) is later introduced, Careem may add the applicable VAT to the Subscription Charges.
You can cancel your Subscription Plan at any time prior to your next scheduled payment to avoid further charges and renewals. If you cancel your Subscription Plan, you will still have access to the Benefits until the end of the current Billing Cycle, and will not be refunded on a pro-rata basis for any cancellation initiated during a Billing Cycle.

Careem makes no warranties or representations, either expressed or implied in respect of any of the aforementioned methods of support , and expressly disclaims all liability (including consequential damages) with respect to timeliness, cost, quality or fitness of goods or services provided in relation to the same.
