Overall, convenient to use for many services. Recommended app to have in Laos. The one negative is the lack of transparency in fees. Unlike other ride hailing apps I've used (like Grab), the fee for Loca is almost always higher than the estimated amount. Also, for the QR payment service where you can link your credit card, I did not see any notice stating the % fee taken from each transaction. This is something that should be clearly communicated.

Thank you for your feedback. Our metered system ensures transparent, standardized pricing based on actual travel time and distance. This often leads to charges lower/higher than estimated, unlike some platforms with unpredictable/unclear fixed pricing. The fee for a QR Code is 1.5% + 5000 kips; in T&C. The calculated fee also shows before PIN page.

Best part of the app is LocaPay, you can connect it to a western credit card (I'm using a Wise debit card) and it only charges around a 7000 Kip fee for around a 100000 Kip change. Which works out to around the same charge you'd get for the max withdrawal from an ATM but without the conversation fee from your card as they app charges you USD. Very convenient. Using it for Taxi's it cost a bit more then competing apps but it's easier to find driver's at late hours.

The third time I used the app, it suggested a price like the first two times but this time in the end got charged almost double with the extra fees added like the convenience fee whatever that is. Also the distance fee can be more if the driver takes a longer route. Isn't that the whole point of the ride sharing apps partially so we don't get scammed by taxi drivers running their meter.
