Vienna, your secret Ubers have arrived!

Let’s be honest, life in Vienna is pretty unique. Ignoring the slightly grumpy waiter (practically an institution) and focusing on the coffee with a shot of milk aka a “melange” instead is custom. The weekend starts on Friday at noon here, naturally. Probably just a few reasons why Vienna is selected as the most liveable city in the world year after year. Vienna is different! 

And Uber is different! Founded in San Francisco in 2009, Uber is today operating in 70+ cities and in over 25 countries worldwide offering to connect people with a private driver at the tap of a button. Anytime. Anywhere. Comfortably. Without cash. And with ease.

This is how you get started:

  1. Tap that app! Open your Uber app on your smartphone, request a car, and in minutes your private driver will show up and get you on your way.
  2. No unnecessary waiting. Watch your driver approaching on a live map and get a notification when he’s arriving, so you can maximize your own very precious time.
  3. No need for cash. All payments are processed automatically via your credit card in the app. Your receipts are emailed to you instantly.
  4. Fare split! No more hassling around in the car. Just tap the button and your fare will automatically be split between you and your friends.
  5. Earn an endless amount of Uber Credits! Share your personal invite code with your friends and give them €20 for their first ride with Uber. Once they have taken a ride, you too receive €20 for each referral!


Test-phase does mean test-phase and while we have sweet rides for you to connect to on the road as of today there may be limited availability from time to time as we get going in Vienna. Please be a patient with us in the first few weeks, we’ll be getting you connected to as many drivers as fast as possible. Please do send us your feedback to! We are eager to read what you think so we can provide you with the best service.

During test phase we are also working with promotional test pricing as we get our toes wet here. To make sure you have no excuses about getting that first ride, just enter the promo code “HALLOWIEN” and your first ride with Uber will be for free up to €20!
