DiDi launching in Sydney with 50% off rides

That's half off rides for a whole month.

Chinese rideshare company DiDi will officially launch itself into the Sydney market as of Monday 16 March 2020.

So what does this mean for riders and drivers? For 4 weeks, eligible riders who sign up before midnight Sunday 15 March can nab 50% off rides and early-bird drivers will be able to keep 100% of their trip fares.

The offers don't stop there with $20 ride vouchers up for grabs for riders who refer a friend to the app, the referred friend will also nab the discount. Sydney riders have the option to book Express and Max which hosts up to six passengers.

This all comes as good news because it will lead to more competitive pricing amongst the pre-existing rideshare companies in Sydney.

Drivers have the opportunity to receive 0% service fee if they successfully sign up 2 or more friends as drivers by 11 March 2020. In other words, you'll be able to take home the entire fare for a 4 week period. Drivers approved before 11 March will receive a 5% service fee in the span of 4 weeks.

DiDi first launched in Australia in May 2018 and since then has accumulated two million passengers on its app. Sydney is the latest addition to join Perth, Brisbane, the Sunshine Coast and the Gold Coast.

The DiDi Australia general manager Mr Lyn Ma said, "DiDi's entry into the global economic and cultural hub of Sydney is a huge milestone for our continued expansion across Australia and we're confident that Sydneysiders will enjoy our industry-leading level of service and pricing which has proved amazingly popular in our other Australian cities."
