- £3 towards £15 for a car journey for new Uber customers only (80% off)
Uber gives pedestrians the power to turn themselves into chauffeur-driven passengers at the touch of a button. With the app downloaded and the £15 redeemed, new users just have to press ‘Request Uber’, and a car-shaped icon will start moving in their direction on the map. The car will arrive along with a text to prompt passengers to come outside and locate their ride via the numberplate. Once journeys are complete, payments are made automatically, so passengers don’t need to part with any cash on arrival. The final cost is displayed shortly thereafter and passengers are encouraged to rate their driver to ensure impeccable service is maintained.
Please note the following restrictions to the offer:
- New customers only
- Smart phone required
- One journey only
Uber is not a taxi service. Instead, it’s a private-hire car app that connects passengers and drivers to create seamless journeys from door to door. During the ordering process, customers can choose the level of luxury in which they’d like to travel: UberX, Uber XL, UberEXEC and UberLUX represent three distinct levels of waft, refinement and style, from silent Toyota Priuses up to long-wheelbase 7 Series BMWs. By harnessing and monetising this pre-existing crosstown traffic, Uber has taken just five years to go from San Francisco venture-funded start-up to global operator. Their service is currently available across more than 300 cities in over 60 countries and has an estimated value of around $50 billion.
