Secret Ubers have made their way to Manila!
A hotbed of food, energy and love-of-life, Manila is one of the bright spots in Asia. But let’s not pretend that getting around our city is easy. Fear not, with Uber’s arrival, you can request a nice and classy car at the push of a button, anytime, anywhere. So whether you’re reliving history in Intramuros, having dinner in one of Makati’s many restaurants, or dancing the night away in the Fort, Uber will make sure you get to where you need to be safely and in style.
When it comes to style, one name – Manila’s First Lady of Fashion – Liz Uy – jumps to mind. One of the top stylists in the country, this woman knows how to do it all and is sure to look good while doing it! In light of this, it’s no surprise that Liz was one of the first to get word about Uber launching in Manila. One step ahead, she opened the app, booked a car, and was whisked away to one of her many Christmas parties this holiday season in Manila’s very first Uber. Another Rider Zero come and gone – in style.
But Manila, this is about you. It’s easy to get started. Here’s how:
- Open your Uber app on your phone, request a car, and in minutes a nice ride will show up and get you on your way.
- No unnecessary waiting: you can see where your car is on a live map and get a notification when it’s arriving, so you can maximize your own time.
- No need for cash. All payments are processed in the app via credit card and your receipts are emailed to you instantly.
- Use promo code: TRYUBERMNL and get PHP 800 off your first ride!
During our “secret Uber” test phase we’ll have limited supply and limited availability but if you’re one of the lucky ones who gets a ride, please feel free to send us your thoughts & feedback to email@example.com. We are eager and excited to hear what you guys think!

We have developed a new pilot program – Xchange Leasing – which is a leasing option administered by an Uber subsidiary and designed to fit with the flexibility that drivers value most. The Xchange lease is one of a kind, and offers value that traditional auto leases do not provide. Unlike most multi-year leases that have high fees for early termination, drivers who participate in Xchange for at least 30 days will be able to return the car with only two weeks notice, and limited additional costs. The program allows for unlimited mileage and the option to lease a used car, with routine maintenance also included.
A new report conducted in partnership with Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) reveals that when empowered with more transportation options like Uber, people are making better choices that save lives.
New technologies are creating opportunities no one could have imagined. To understand Uber’s place in that trend, we commissioned a survey of our driver-partners and put together a comprehensive analysis.
