This is what the fare is.

That is too expensive ! I estimated 3000 yen. Could you explain why ?

自然な表現

That is too expensive! I had estimated 3000 yen. Could you explain why?

1. This is an alternative expression that you can use.
I would like to apologise for that but when the fare was estimated they were no heavy traffic on the route. Due to the heavy traffic the fare increases.

Oh, I see. Could you give me a discount for me ? I have only 5000 yen now.

自然な表現

Oh, I see. Could you give me a discount? I have only 5000 yen now.

1. By saying "Could you give me a discount" you have already made it clear that you are requesting for a discount so there is no need to say "for me" at the end.
Oh, I am sorry but I can't give you the discount you are asking for. I am also working hard to earn money for my family.

Okay. But the fare is 6000 yen and As I said I have just 5000 yen. How can I pay this fare ? I did not expect the double fare.

自然な表現

Okay, but the fare is 6000 yen and as I said I have just 5000 yen. How can I pay this fare ? I did not expect the double fare.

1. Avoid starting a sentence with the conjunction "but." Instead, use "but" to connect clauses in sentences.
2. Use lower case because this word is not at the beginning of the sentence.
You can pay through credit card if you have one, or a debit card. If you don't have either, I don't have a choice but to accept what you have. I apologize for underestimating the fare. It's my fault.

I am afraid I do not have any credit card now, so I pay just 5000 yen. I will prepare enough money next time in case of traffic jam. Thank you.

自然な表現

I am afraid I do not have any credit card now, so I will pay just 5000 yen. I will prepare enough money next time in case of a traffic jam. Thank you.

1. Use future tense to mention what you plan to do next.
2. Use an indefinite article before a singular countable noun.
No worries. Sometimes, unexpected things happen, so I totally understand your situation. Take care of yourself. Do you live in this neighborhood?

Yes. I live near here. Sorry, I will hurry home. Thank you. Have a good rest of the day !

自然な表現

Yes. I live near here. Sorry, I will hurry home. Thank you. Enjoy the rest of your day!

1. "Have a good rest of the day" sounds unnatural; this is a better expression to use.
  • differ(異なる)
  • estimated amount(見積額)
  • explain(説明する)
  • reason(理由)
  • fare(運賃)
  • Okay, I will pay this amount.(わかりました、これくらい払います。)
  • Can't it be a little cheaper?(もう少し安くできませんか?)
  • Can you calculate it again?(もう一度計算してもらってもいいですか?)
  • Could you explain why?(なぜか説明してくれますか?)
  • The fare differs from the estimated amount.(見積額と運賃が違います。)
