An official response from Uber on “Premium Pickup Possible”:
We understand that you want to have as many trip details as possible while accepting trips using Uber, so we’ve added a notification to the trip request screen when we believe a Long Pickup Fee may apply to a trip.
We’ve seen in the past that trips that include a Long Pickup Fee tend to be longer trips that have lower cancellations.
You’ll see “Pickup premium possible” or Pickup premium likely" in cases where a Long Pickup Fee may apply to a trip. Please note: these notifications do not guarantee that you will receive a Long Pickup Fee.
If we can help you with anything else, please let us know.
