In April I went to Las Vegas to see my husband while he was on a business trip. When I asked him how to get from the airport to the hotel, he replied, “Get an Uber.” The era of catching a taxi is long gone. Thanks to Uber, there is a better alternative to a taxi that is both convenient and safe. With Uber, you can request a driver to get where you need to go in a timely manner. Anywhere. Anytime. Not only is this more convenient for you, it’s also safe and easy! Here are the top reasons you should ride with Uber.
Top Reasons You Should Ride with Uber
Uber makes catching a ride safe. When you order a driver, you’re able to do so from wherever you are. There’s no need to walk down the street by yourself after dark or try to hail a cab on a busy street. You simply look for a driver on the app and your ride will show up at your current location.
Uber is also very convenient. If you need a ride after a luncheon or before your business meeting, you can look on the app and see how long it’ll take for your driver to arrive, which allows you to request a driver when it’s convenient for you. After you’ve requested a driver, you can also check on their estimated arrival time so that you’re not stuck standing around waiting for your ride. Uber also tracks the location of their vehicles, which is an added important safety feature. I recently had to be at the hospital at 5:30 in the morning for surgery, and knew I would not be allowed to drive myself home. Rather than ask my husband to put up with crabby kids that had to get up way to early to accompany me to the hospital, I called Uber.
Using Uber is as easy as downloading the app and ordering a ride. Downloading the rider app is as easy as heading to the app store on your phone and downloading. From theapp, you can schedule rides and get to where you need to go, very easily.
You’re supporting other people
One of the best parts of using Uber is you’re supporting other people. People of all walks of life are using Uber to help make their families extra money. When it comes down to it, “supporting” a small business of sorts is always better. You also get to ride with people who are serious about what they do because they’re on their own time and want to keep you as a customer.
Check out the discounts
What is really cool about Uber is that they are always offering discounts. Keep an eye out for those discounts from Uber on the app and in your email inbox. Promo codes are always a good reason to give a new business a try. Who can say no to discounts anyways?
Reviews are everything
Just like any good business, Uber gives a chance for people to review their experience. Yes, reviews aren’t always done in good conscious, however, for the most part they are. You can look on Uber for that driver’s rating. It’s always nice knowing you’ll be dealing with a polite person.
Uber isn’t “cheap” but it is inexpensive, which means you can get around cheaper than normal. Their rates are fair, which helps you get to where you need and want to go. No one should be selling their right kidney to get around in a new city.
If you plan on riding with Uber, let me know what you think. Have you had a great experience with it?
