Any fare guarantee is a surge killer.
Sadly all ants fall for it.
Most fail as the conditions are so strict you end up just missing out.
Good luck. Can you send a copy of the email?
Here is the detail. BTW - this is for Sydney. Not sure if other cities/states will be getting it?

They are really putting the 'pressure' onto drivers now to be out there in the prime hours and in the prime areas. They have announced another morning incentive for operating in the Eastern Suburbs (starting next Monday). Now fare guarantees this weekend.

My only thought is that pax are really complaining big time about surge. Or Uber are working off the correlation between lower ratings and surge.

Can't seem to figure out why Uber would do a fare guarantee this weekend. Is there a special event on or something?
The Swans game is on. First bounce is 4:30pm on Saturday. I guess we will have a crowd moving away from Moore Park at around 7:00pm in that case.

With or without fare guarantees I don't see how surge is going to be prevented, if this is indeed the intention.
