Uber Promo Codes for $20 off in October 2017

Uber's app-driven approach has revolutionised how we get from place to place. Save even more on your journey with these Uber promo codes and discount vouchers.

The basic Uber concept is simple: you use an app to book a car and driver.

Your smartphone already knows where you are, the you specify where you want to go, and the driver comes direct to your location. You're given an estimated arrival time and uou can track how far away they are, so you're not left wondering if a taxi is actually coming. Payment is also handled through the Uber app and the fare is specified in advance, so there's no surprises or stress if there's a lot of traffic.

Uber offers a variety of vehicle types, from UberX (where individuals offer Uber rides in their spare time) to UberBLACK (luxury cars with professional chauffeurs).

Uber is available and legal in many states in Australia including NSW and WA with Ubers able to pick you up from Sydney Airport legally as of May 2016.

    Can I use my Melbourne Uber App in Sydney & other places?

      Hi Bert,

      Thanks for your question.

      As a passenger, you can use your Uber app in any state or city where Uber operates. But as a driver, you can only use the app or work in the city where you have a license to drive from Uber.

      Cheers,
      Anndy

    How do I book Uber to pick up a companion slightly off the direct route to our final destination?

    • Staff
      RenchJune 11, 2017Staff

      Hi Dawn,

      Thanks for your inquiry. Please note that we are not affiliated with Uber or any company we feature on our site and so we can only offer you general advice.

      With picking up a companion from slightly off your route with Uber, you can have this requested directly with the Uber driver once you book in a ride. You can select your main destination then request it with the driver that you’ll be picking up your companion that is just slightly off the route then continue with your destination. Only make sure that it is not out of the way because you will be needing to book a seperate ride for that.

      Hope this helps.

      Best regards,
      Rench

    Hi Kevin,

    Thank you for reaching out. Just to confirm though, you have reached finder.com.au, not actually Uber.

    In order for any promotional discount to be applied to a trip fare, you must enter the promo code before or during the trip. If you were unable to apply a promo code for this trip, you can contact Uber help directly.

    I hope this has helped.

    Cheers,
    Liezl

    HI,
    Are there ubers available to take my family of 5 people to the airport or are ther only standard cars?
    How would I ensure that a car will come that can take 5 passengers? I don’t want to be left stranded and miss our plane?

    • Staff
      ArnoldApril 13, 2017Staff

      Hi Kierstan,

      Thanks for your inquiry.

      Normally, the capacity of a standard Uber car is 4 plus the driver but it varies among drivers. For example, 5 people with light luggage might be accommodated by the standard car but as I said, it depends on the driver. To be sure you’ll catch your flight. Please click here and check out Uber SUX and Uber LUX. These cars are bigger and more spacious and will surely accommodate your family.

      Hope this information helped.

      Cheers,
      Arnold

    Hi there, I accidentally entered US promotion code and not able to enter one for Perth now. How do I delete the US promotion code, thanks

      Hi DM,

      Thanks for your question.

      It seems that you may no longer be able to delete the US promo code you entered. Usually, the promo code can be used by the time you’re creating an Uber account.

      Cheers,
      May

    Do you have service from Sidney International airport to Watsons Bay at around 11pm?

    • Staff
      AnndyNovember 29, 2016Staff

      Hi Beth,

      Thanks for your question.

      Uber is a ride-on- demand service with 24/7 reliability at Sydney Airport. You will need to request the ride the moment that you require it so an Uber provider in the area will then pick up the request and make their way to you.

      Cheers,
      Anndy
