Thread: Free Uber Ride

  1. #1

    Free Uber Ride

    Hi guys - someone in the building I live in shared a code for £15 off a first ride with Uber. Their rates are pretty good so hopefully it could amount to a free ride.

    The code is CELESTIACARDIFF

    Hope it works for you.

    That's awesome that someone in the building gave you a code and you immediately thought of us. Thanks, BristolBluebird.

    Uber is absolutely fantastic, my love for it is fuelled by my hatred of Dragons taxis and their cowboy drivers.

    I can't see it mention the company he was driving for, do how does it discredit an entire company?

Whereas a taxi on a meter could take the scenic route, particularly if you fall asleep, and at the end you'd get a demand for a cash payment there and then, you'd pay up and that'd be that. Know which I'd prefer.

    It's close, but Toast boy wins the battle of the profit/prophet puns.

    Your prize is having your joke made into a cartoon in a Danish newspaper.

    You agree a price with Uber then pay. You don't have to deal with arguing with a greedy bastard speaking in part English and part Arabic whilst haggling over the price.

    Same as with a Normal taxi then?

    Except if you fall asleep and get the scenic route home you can get your money back it seems

    One advantage of Uber is you can pay by credit card. There are annoyingly few taxi companies in Cardiff that take them.
    Most major cities it is commonplace.
    Especially annoying if you are using a company credit card for travel expenses.

    Last thing you want is to use a company credit with taxi receipts. They can never be arsed to write them out so nice little perk who claiming receipts back.

    Where do you think these super duper new breed of cabbies have appeared from. Most are hackney cab drivers who were enticed by a signing up bonus and another bonus for recommending other drivers. When i packed in last year with Dragon i was taking about £800 p/w and paying radio rent of £85 which is 10%. Uber take 25% of your fare.
    Might seem cheaper at the mo,but wait till you get hit with price surge when it's busy.
    Black and whites give taxi drivers a bad name,i never once refused a short fare or left people stranded.

    Your post that I was responding to was about tracking them not about agreeing prices. However, with the Dragon app you can book a taxi, get a price and track the taxi. And Dragon have plenty of drivers who are native English speaker.

    You agree the price beforehand, therein lies the difference. With Uber they can't **** you over as much as they could with Dragons.

    Dragon and Premier both have apps that let you book taxis and pay by card
