Used Uber in US, MX and India
I have used Uber in Bangalore, Chennai and Kochi and have been happily satisfied with the app and the service together. (I have used it in US and Mexico too). It is such a pleasure to have Uber service especially in India. Lot of to and fro travelling for me has been made just so easy! I have completely stopped using local transportation like bus or auto when it comes to local short to long distance commute. I have had varied experiences such as forgetting the phone in the car - where the driver called and I later picked it up.. Uber has attended to and resolved any issue with the service I might have had at times with remarkable response time. Logging issue/ feedback, signing up and using free rides all are very easy to do with this app. Looking at history, receipts, free rides and applying promotions have now been made so much easier. Wish they extend the same to non Apple devices too! One thing I would probably suggest for improvement is: when opening the app "during" the taxi transit, don't search for cars, just open app faster and show remaining time sooner. I think it gets a bit slow in opening during transit.
But overall I am a very happy Uber app and service user!!
An all-ages review
Just in case my other reviews are deemed inappropriate, let me use language everyone can understand. Instead of taking an Uber ride, I was forced to pay a bunch of extra money to take a cab because my "credit card was deemed invalid." They offer ZERO customer support whatsoever! I entered my (completely valid and 100% correct) credit card information several several times to no avail. If I ordered a pizza from Pizza Hut right now, they would take my card, but apparently this engine can't handle it. And since there was absolutely no one to help me, I instead had to pay $50 to take a cab that would've been basically free with Uber. Supposedly. My recommendation? Walk before you bother trying to use this service. The fact you can't even take it without disclosing your credit card information is terrifying. What if I just want to pay cash? This service is garbage and I wouldn't be surprised if it were a front to steal people's information. Thanks for absolutely nothing, Uber! I wish I could do more than leave bad reviews, but, since there's no customer service to speak of, this will have to do. I repeat: don't use this service! Don't give your card information out! Who knows who's running this joint?! Caution folks.
$20 coupon: 2J4NZ
First of all, if you haven’t taken a ride yet make sure you use the coupon 2J4NZ to get $20 off your first ride! Enter it right before you request a ride in the promotions tab. Might as well try it out since it probably won't cost you a thing!!
The app is easy to use and intuitive, giving you important info like the driver’s face, phone number, and car make/model. It’s amazing how quick and seamless the entire process is. A car comes to your door within minutes of pressing a button! The drivers are real people, they are very polite and their cars are clean! Some even come with complimentary water and candy! Even if you want to charge your phone, a lot of drivers have car chargers at your ready! UberX is definitely cheaper than your average cab. After all this, I don’t see why you would ever use a cab again. Even if you want to get a black car on the occasional night out, it’s still cheaper and more convenient than hiring your own private driver.
