DiDi celebrates its Brisbane launch with up to 50% off rides
Sign-up now for big early-bird deals in time for the official launch on 22 July.
DiDi is one of the newest rideshare services to launch in Australia, but it's quickly growing its reputation as being one of the most price competitive on the market.
While the launch might not have taken off quite yet, you can prep yourself for some big deals now. New users who sign up from 19-21 July will score themselves up to 50% off their first 10 rides, up to the value of $10 per ride. Rides must be taken within the first four weeks of launch, after which you'll be back to paying standard fares.
Which isn't too bad to be honest as DiDi drastically cut its fares by 10% in December 2018 across all its Australian offering to stay ahead of the competition.
If you forget to sign-up in time for the launch, don't despair as DiDi has more than a few deals up its sleeve to get you riding. From 22 July until 18 August 2019, new users can still score 50% off for the first four weeks. However, this will only be valid for their first five trips and again, limited to the value of $10 per ride.
#DiDiDAYS, where Brisbanites can ride for free, are also scheduled for the first three Saturdays following the launch. Specifically these are on 27 July, 3 August and 10 August and are for rides up to the value of $20. If your ride goes over, you'll pay the excess.
DiDi Australia general manager Lin Ma said: "We are thrilled to launch in Brisbane, a fast-growing and dynamic city where people love to get around and experience all the city has to offer. With the city's receptiveness towards ridesharing and new technology, Brisbane is the ideal location for our continued expansion across Australia. We hope our launch into Brisbane allows local residents to do more and pay less with our rideshare service."
