I took my very first Uber ride in Shanghai. I received a free ride through an Uber promo code (uberwjd), so I figured I would use it since it was free and I needed a ride.
Well, my first Uber trip turned out well. He took me directly to home with no problem at all, he was polite, he was friendly, and his Uber car was very nice and clean.
Because of how well my first Uber ride went, I highly recommend their service when you need a ride somewhere and that is why I created this Uber review.
Here are some common questions that you may be wondering right now about Uber:
What is Uber?
Uber is a ridesharing company similar to a taxi company that was founded in 2009. It hasn’t been around for long, but the company is exploding and it seems like everyone is using Uber right now.
How does Uber work?
Uber uses a phone app (I LOVE how easy their app is to use) so that passengers can easily find an Uber car for their next ride.
All you do is open the app on your phone and request a ride. You can then see who will be picking you up, how long will take the driver to get to you, and more. It makes finding a ride very easy.
Is Uber more expensive than a taxi?
For the most part, taking an Uber ride is cheaper than taking a regular taxi. You also don’t have to tip your Uber driver according to Uber’s website (however, I did when I had my Uber ride), which can save you money as well.
However, you do need to watch what kind of Uber car you are taking. UberX will most likely be the cheapest car to take, and taking an UberLUX will be more expensive. This is just like with taking a taxi though. Taxis are cheaper than taking a limo, so the same thought process applies.
What’s this stuff about surge pricing?
Lately, Uber has been getting in trouble with customers with their surge pricing. This is where they might charge 2 or 3 times more than the normal fare price because of busier times. This can make the cost of an Uber ride much higher than a normal taxi.
They usually only do this when it’s super busy, such as you are taking a ride from a busy football game, after a concert, New Year’s Eve, and other busy nights. They do this when there’s not enough cars on the rode so that they can keep up with demand.
However, you are always informed beforehand and you will know about the surge before it’s too late.
Is Uber safe?
Yes, taking an Uber ride is safe!
Uber screens their drivers with a three-step criminal background check. Uber also provides commercial liability insurance so that you are covered during your ride.
