DiDi is now in Sydney: Here’s how you can save 50% off
Plus score $20 bonus credit for your next ride.
It's the news we've all been waiting for, Chinese rideshare company DiDi has officially launched in Sydney.
As of today there'll be more competitive pricing across the rideshare market and you can score an exclusive $20 credit.
If you signed up before midnight 16 March then you'll get 50% off every ride for the first four weeks. Maximum discount is $10 per trip. The great news is if you didn't quite get around to signing up before the launch then the same discount applies on your first five trips.
The savings don't stop there, users also receive a $20 voucher for successfully referring friends to the app.
We compared the prices of DiDi, Ola and Uber on a trip between Central Station down to Bondi Beach.

You stand to save almost half of a full-price fare with DiDi as compared to its competitors on the same trip.
When booking a ride through the app, you'll have the option of an Express vehicle (holds up to four) or a Max (up to six passengers). Split fare is available on Max rides.
In light of recent health warnings across the globe, DiDi's Australian general manager Lyn Ma said, "We are launching our Sydney service at a time where we are all very conscious of inner-city travel."
"As rider and driver safety is our main priority, our Sydney launch is focused on maintaining the well-being of all DiDi users and the public generally."
DiDi also launched a relief fund last week in an effort to support driver-partners across the globe and in Australia.
