Does cancelling a ride because of a wrong address shown affect the acceptance rate?

Yesterday for a guarantee period, I got a pool ride request in the middle of the Pitchfork festival with no vehicular access. So I called them first and couldn't get a proper answer to find where they were (aka drunk/high) and phone got disconnected. So I cancelled the ride citing wrong address shown.

Does my acceptance rate still be penalized for canceling for the right reasons. I had only completed 2 pool rides for that period?

Since you had only two pools and one you cancelled, then your acceptance rate would be 50%, below the 80% requirement. Next time, especially when on a guarantee with a pool requirement, get the pax to cancel.

I would think it wouldn't count against your acceptance rating but am not certain. In the future I'd cancel no show instead because that doesn't count against you.

N0- I have canceled many rides for wrong address or no show during the guarantee period. It absolutely does not count against your acceptance rate because you accepted the ride... its not your fault the Pax never showed up, or gave you a location 20 miles away from where they're actually at. Uber knows this. You are good, my friend.

Yes, your guarantee is ruined for the whole day. You have 50% Pool acceptance for canceling one of two.

So now the driver is responsible for the input of the the passengers pick up? That's ridiculous! Then again I suspect you work for Uber so you'd know! You should talk to the boss and make sure Stewie gets paid!

Thanks all for the response. Come Monday I'll find out and let you all know what happened. I will email them multiple times if they don't.

Makes no difference. I've done this more than a few times. Those days where you are ready to sign off and a ping comes through. I'll accept, then go to cancel and hit other. I always got paid but they would email me about deactivation for cancellations every now and then.

Careful not to cancel too many, they will deactivate for that. They do the same for timing out pings, but in the past they added in the contract you can't be deactivated for it. However, I along with others receive our email/text for timing out so many pings.
