If you are looking to use Uber or Grab car in Jakarta or outside of Jakarta you have the option of paying by Credit Card or Cash. If I were you I would pay by cash so that you cant have any nasty surprises like this

Dolly, an employee of a private company, told kompas.com on Wednesday that the problem occurred because the driver did not stop the meter after he got out of the car.
“The driver continued to drive as far as Serang [in Banten] for another 10 hours,” Dolly said as quoted by kompas.com on Wednesday. Dolly showed a screenshot of the route the Uber driver took after he got out of the car.
You can pay cash with Uber here so they wont rip you off. Grab Car give you a fixed price. Go Car the same. Uber give you an estimate.
Overall Uber is safe and the trips are cheaper than taxis. The drivers I have used have been honest and not taken me the long way round, unlike some of the taxi companies here. Cars are good too.
Uber fired the driver......
