UBER is an awesome service which allows you to book a car via your mobile phone.
How Does the Uber London / Manchester Credit Work?
If you are a first-time user, you can get £10 off your first ride with UBER in London. (This UBER credit / promo voucher also works for MANCHESTER.) In order to use it, you have to create an account.
Is UBER more expensive than a mini-cab or a black cab? Nope. In our experience, UBER is not more expensive than a mini-cab or a black cab. UBER’s pricing is pretty transparent. You can get an estimate of the price before you book. Plus, UBER offers tiers of service which come with different pricing. See more about that below.
UberX: Everyday cars for everyday use. This is basically ride-sharing. Better, faster, and cheaper than a taxi.
Sample Vehicles: Toyota Prius, Honda Insight, Hybrid Volkswagen Passat
UberEXEC: Bumps it up a notch. You get a nice car, an in-car phone charger, and the price is corporate-friendly.
Sample Vehicles: Mercedes-Benz E-Class (New Shape - W212) BMW 5 Series (New Shape F10/F11/F07) Audi A6 (New Shape C7 Series)
UberLUX: The Ultimate Luxury and Style. Complimentary water, mags, and apparently even sweets.
Sample Vehicles: Mercedes-Benz S-Class BMW 7-series Audi A8
UberTAXI: Get a black cab. (This is like Hailo.) Use Uber to request and pay for a Black Cab at standard taxi rates. Taximeter will start running from the time the Black Cab arrives at the pick up location. Prices are set by TFL.
