1. Open your app and enter your destination in the "Where to go?" field.
2. The next screen will display all vehicle options available in your area. Click one to select it for your ride, then Click "Choose preferred vehicle" (button will be your vehicle selection).
3. You may be asked to confirm your pickup location. If so, move the pin on the map, or select from a list of locations. Click "Confirm Pickup" to send your request to eligible drivers in the area.
4. Once a driver accepts your request, you'll see the driver name, photograph, vehicle details and estimated time of arrival on the map.
DICE will send you notifications when your driver is close to your pickup location.
When a lot of people in the same area are requesting rides at the same time, trip prices might be higher than normal. This change in price helps to attract more drivers to an area so everyone can get a ride.
If you're requesting a ride during a busy time, you'll see a message in your app to let you know.
You can wait a few minutes while more drivers get on the road, or you can pay a little extra to get a ride when you need it.
Presently, DICE is available in the cities commencing operations in Abuja. Having established account on DICE platform, you can request a ride in the city where DICE operates, any time and any day.
Using your rider account, you may only request one vehicle at a time. You can request another vehicle immediately after a current trip ends.
DICE offers car pool options. These vehicle options accommodate 6 or more riders. If you're requesting a ride for a large group, it's a good idea to select preferred vehicle and communicate with the driver who accepts your ride request and ensure that the vehicle has enough seats and seat belts for everyone.
If you intend to ride in a group too large for a single vehicle, please ask other team members to use their DICE accounts to request additional vehicles.
Riding with a large group is a great opportunity to invite friends to create their own DICE accounts. Select "Free Rides" from your app menu to get started. When invited friends take a first ride, you'll receive a referral reward.
HOW SCHEDULED RIDES WORK
The Scheduled Rides feature allows you to select a 10 minute window for a driver to come pick you up. At the start of the window, the app will send out a ride request on your behalf. You'll get push notifications when you're matched with a driver and when they're nearby, the same as a typical ride.
NOTES: - Scheduling a ride in advance doesn't guarantee you'll be connected with a driver - In the rare case you're not connected with a driver, we'll notify you at the end of your pickup window - Dynamic pricing may be in effect at the time of your ride. We'll let you know if your fare has changed.

WHERE AND WHEN IS THIS AVAILABLE?
Check your app to see if Scheduled Rides are available in your area. If it's available, you can schedule a ride any time of day.
You can schedule trips to the airport, but not when leaving an airport. If you're leaving an airport, you should request a ride on-demand as usual. Accepting a trip price Once you request your ride, you've accepted the price shown in the app. The trip price you're charged may defer if: - You make extra stops - You change your destination - The driver waits several minutes at your pickup location Requesting a specific driver The DICE app cannot match you with a specific driver.
When you request a ride, your app sends your request to nearby drivers to pick you up at your pickup location. However, the rider have the option of choosing male or female driver, though it depends on availability at that moment. Requesting long trips DICE does not limit the distance you can travel on a trip. It essential to communicate the designation and duration of trip to enable us arrange the vehicle to convey you, especially if It’s charter to and fro. Often times, drivers need to make the return trip home after reaching your destination, and it's polite to give them a heads up of a long trip.
If you'd like to continue after a trip automatically ends, please request a new ride. Since your previous driver is nearby, they may receive this new trip request.
Riding with pets In consideration of local, state and federal laws in your area, service animals are permitted to accompany riders at all times.
If you're planning to ride with a non-service pet, it's good practice to contact the driver who accepts your ride request. Use your app to send a text message or call to let the driver know you'd like to bring a pet.
Please help drivers keep vehicles clean for all riders by bringing a crate or blanket to reduce the risk of damage or mess to avoid cleaning charges.

Before a trip starts, your app provides an ETA (Estimated Time of Arrival) for when your driver should arrive at your pickup location. After your trip starts, your app provides an ETA for when you should arrive at your destination. Please note that ETA times are estimates and not guaranteed. A variety of external factors like heavy traffic or road construction can impact travel time. Before you request a ride, your app displays a time in the black SET PICKUP LOCATION bar.

If the driver asked you to pay a toll or parking fee with cash and you were charged on your receipt. Please do inform us promptly about it. Charge for a cleaning fee: To ensure the riders enjoy hygienic and comfortable rides, drivers maintain clean vehicles.

If you were charged a cleaning fee you feel is inaccurate or unfair. Please do inform us about it. Failed Card Payment If you received an email notification about a failed card payment after your trip, it may be for a number of reasons (DICE is not notified of the specific reason). To resolve some of the common issues, please check if: Your card has sufficient available funds to pay for the journey Your card has expired E-commerce transactions for your card are enabled You have not exceeded your monthly limit for online purchases Your card have sufficient available funds to pay for the journey To resolve a failed payment, we recommend the following: Reach out to your bank or credit card provider for more information Inform them of the amount and when the trip ended, so they can allow the transaction to process.

Trip Cancellation We understand that there might be situations when you need to cancel your request. Please note that in some cases you will be charged a cancellation fee. Cancellation fees have been implemented to compensate drivers for the time and distance invested in a trip that does not eventuate. Cancellation fees are applied in the following situations: You cancel a trip request 4 min after the driver accepts and is driving towards your pickup location Driver cancels the request 4 min after he has already arrived at the pickup location and waited for you. You can find the cancellation fee amounts for each category in the app. simply select a category and click on the info sign next to the category name. How to check if you were charged a cancellation fee If cancelling a trip is subject to a cancellation fee: You will get a notification in the app when cancelling your trip request.

You won't be charged a cancellation fee if you cancel your request within 4 minutes from the moment driver accepted your request or if a driver cancels the request without waiting for you for at least 4 minutes. Note: The authorization fee can be mistaken for the cancellation fee. The authorization is a temporary card verification hold to check your card’s validity. This pending charge is either returned immediately or within 14 business days. It was the authorization fee, not a cancellation fee if: You haven’t received a notification in the app about the cancellation fee when cancelling a ride When you check the cancelled order in your ride history in the app, you can’t see the trip price. If you have any questions or think that you were unfairly charged the cancellation fee, please contact our Support team via the app. I can’t find my receipt If you can’t find a receipt in your email inbox, check the spam folder.

Issues with order notification
If you experience issues with receiving app notifications, please try out these quick fixes:
● Make sure you are using the latest app version
● Check the Do not disturb settings: sometimes they are set up so that notifications are shown but the sound is off
● Make sure the sound is not on mute
● If the device is connected to car audio either via cable or Bluetooth, make sure the car radio volume is also turned up
Check if notifications from DICE are enabled and sound alerts are allowed
- For iOS: Allow persistent banners to avoid missing a notification when the app is in the background
- For Android: Each app has separate notification settings, so make sure you have it enabled for DICE. Use thePermissions Guide available in the app (the Settings tab) to help you check and change the current settings.
