Uber is a cab service provider headquartered in the United States but with a degree of omnipresence in more than five hundred cities around the world spanning Canada, Australia and India among others. The company has a fleet of different types of passenger vehicles and a network of independent cab drivers & cab companies. The Uber app serves as the interface that you can use to book a car to travel within your city or beyond in some cases at a reasonable rate. There are economy and premium fares depending on your choice of car, time of travel and where you are travelling but you can use Uber coupons or promo codes to pay less.
Quintessentially, Uber offers pick and drop service. You would choose the origin and the destination. The app would find cabs nearest to your selected address and you can book a cab in real time. There is no need for reservations in advance but you can book an Uber cab hours before the actual travel time. Uber maps the shortest route to your destination so you don’t have to worry about paying more or being diverted and taken on a longer route. The app has a fare estimator so you can know the exact cost of a particular trip before you confirm a booking. You need to use Uber coupons or promo codes before you confirm the booking to get the discount.
Uber also has a sharing option, known as UberPool in some countries. This is ideal for daily commuters who would want to travel to and from work, college or any other place. The Uber Pool fares are much lower as the cost is split among those who share the cab ride along the same route. Uber has surge prices at times. You should look for relevant Uber coupons and promo codes if you wish to save money during these surges.
