5 Must-Know Tips for a Great Ride

Happy new year, Singapore! As you take on a new year, leave it to us to make your journey through 2017 a seamless one.

The new Uber app is not only designed to make your travel experience faster and smarter but also comes loaded with key features to enjoy.

1) GET THERE FASTER

It’s simple. We’ve just got one question – Where to?

All you need to do is key in your destination in the “where to?” field, confirm your pickup location and request your ride! If you’d like to change your pickup location, simply key it in the ‘Current location’ field and you’re good to go. You can also set shortcuts, including your work and home locations, so booking your ride is even easier.

When the most affordable ride in the city gets cheaper, you need to know how to make the most of it. Tap on the ‘Payment’ tab, scroll to the bottom, select ‘Add promo code’ and key in your code to travel the city for less!

 

3) CUSTOMER SUPPORT AT THE TAP OF A BUTTON

You can now enjoy customer support through your Uber app. If you’d like to get in touch, click on the ‘Help’ tab, pick the trip that you would like support for and tell us about any issues you might have. You will get a response from our dedicated support team within the app. Simple, effective and seamless.

 

4) A RIDE FOR EVERY OCCASION 

We’ve got a ride for every occasion and budget. Simply swipe right to choose from a range of travel options to pick the one that suits you best. On a tight budget? Ride on uberPOOL or uberX. Got a date night planned? Sweep your date off their feet in an UberEXEC. Travelling with the whole family? Travel comfortably in an UberXL that fits up to 6 passengers.
