Crazy as it sounds, I still book Uber despite the sky high rate and surges. I pay for convenience and dependability. I got too dependent with the private car service that even when traveling to other countries (with more efficient MRT and transportation system), I still consider booking a ride. Check out my adventures in Myanmar and Taiwan.
Uber recently launched new updates and features to its app that would help commuters do errands and go around Metro Manila especially this holiday season.
Set Multiple Destinations and/or Stops
The new feature Set Multiple Destinations and/or Stops is perfect for those who would need to drop a gift, pick-up a laundry or go for a drive-tru.
Uber invited us to try the new feature and to choose our own adventure. From Manila House we booked a ride going to Mind Museum (where we picked up our Archery tickets) to Makati Cinema Square (Kodanda Archery).
You just simple open the app and tap the “+” next to the destination box to add stop(s) at any point before or during your ride. The fares would adjust as you add or remove stops, based on time and distance rates disclosed in the app. Other applicable taxes, tolls, surcharges and adjustments may apply. Limit the stop for only 3 minutes.
First Stop: Mind Museum
Got our passes
We were not ready for this 🏹 Haha
Not bad for me and Rodel 🎯
How’s yours @rodmagaru? 😁
If you are planning to host an event or party, and wish to treat your guests to a free Uber Ride, you simply coordinate with Uber and ask for a specific Uber Code which your guests can use to ride to and from your venue.
The best thing about the Uber Code is that you only pay for the “used” promo codes. Say, you invited 50 guests and gave away 50 uber codes, and only 30 showed up and used it, you only need to pay 30 codes.
If you are a first time rider of Uber, don’t forget to use my Uber Promo Code “uberruthilicious” to get Php 200 off your first ride.
Uber Discount for Senior Citizens, PWD and Students
The Uber App allows one to create profile for Family Members and to book an Uber Ride for them. I tried this last week and the app automatically sent a message to my brother (who was with mom) regarding the booking details.
To enroll a Senior Citizen, PWD or student, open the Uber App>Menu>Help>Account and Payment Options>
Click on “I am qualified for a Student/PWD/Senior Citizen Discount”. It would take you to Google Form which you need to fill out. Simply take a photo of the ID and send to Uber .
.. and that is #whyiUber
