Some drivers will let you book instantly, others choose to review every booking request.
- If the ride has Instant Approval, your payment method is charged immediately.
- If you send a booking request, your payment method is charged only after the driver approves your booking request.
Once your booking is confirmed, you'll receive a booking confirmation email and can find your booking and ride details in Your rides.
How the driver gets paid
If your ride goes as planned, the driver is automatically paid or can request their money transfer on the BlaBlaCar platform. No matter how far in advance you book, the driver doesn’t receive payment until at least 24 hours after the departure time.
If a driver sends you a payment link through BlaBlaCar’s messaging or outside of our platform before a booking is confirmed, please let us know by going to the member's Profile and selecting Report this member.
