Everyday people travel from A to B in any number of ways, one such way is a Taxi – the better way is an Uber. Uber is a smartphone app that you can use to book hire cars on demand that caters to all of Sydney and is currently testing in Melbourne. The service is a friend to consumers first, offering a new private car alternative that is reliable and totally sophisticated. At the touch of button a Black S500 Mercedes (cars vary, but are all incredibly luxurious) will arrive at your location. The driver addresses you by name and you ride in comfort to your deisred location, all without the need to touch, let alone open your wallet.
TVG has been using it and absolutely loving it, and we recommend you get on board. Catching an Uber is about 20% more expensive than a cab fare, for a 500% better experience. We’ve all been in situations where hailing a cab is near impossible, whether it be change-over time or a quiet back street, Uber eliminates the worry associated with getting a cab – the app presents the user accurate waiting times and drivers are personally contactable as soon as the booking is made.
Uber is one of those services that people will doubt until they actually use it. I must admit that initially I never saw the need to use such an exclusive or premium service, however after only my first ride I was completely blown away by the level of sophistication, professionalism and comfort of the whole experience. It’s time you tried an Uber.
And that’s where we come in. Uber is offering 500 TVG readers one free ride (up to the value of $50) for new riders in both Sydney and Melbourne!
