With Uber taking over the city, I decided to give it a try a couple of months ago and I am completely obsessssssed. Uber is super convenient for 3 reasons – It’s cheap, reliable, and there’s no hassle.

Uber is the most cost effective means of traveling. If you live in a big city like I do, taxi’s can be very pricey when going from one side of town to the other. In addition to cheap pricing, Uber offers the option of sharing your ride with another passenger for about half the price of a solo trip. The only downfall to this is that it may take you longer to arrive at your destination, but if you’re not in a rush it’s the best option in my opinion!

With thousands of Uber’s around, your driver is never really more than six minutes away. So say good bye to waiting years for your taxi driver to show up! On the App you’re also able to track your driver, give him a call, and cancel the ride without charge if its under five minutes of placing the order. Talk about amazing!

I doubt I’m the only person that’s ever had an issue or two with taxi drivers. I’ve had drivers tell me”my debit machine doesn’t work” forcing me to go to a bank and withdraw, and have gotten yelled at for not tipping large amounts on short rides. Uber sets your bills to be charged automatically from your debit visa or credit card and doesn’t force you to tip. So paying isn’t an awkward situation at the end of your car ride, you can just hop out and go! Trying to find your ride is also very easy because the app shows you a picture of your driver and provides the license plate. (This is also ideal if something were to happen during your ride and you need to track down the driver.)

I hope this post pushes you to try Uber for the first time and fall in love with this easy means of travelling. Here’s a code you can use that saves you up to $25 off your first ride. code = alexc8904ue This also will help me  save up to $25 off of my next one!

happy travelling!
