Uber Promo Codes for $20 off in October 2016

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 order a uber x for 6 people tomorrow night at 6.30pm.
    How do I do it

      Hi Mark,

      Unfortunately you’re unable to order Ubers in advance. When it comes time to order your vehicle just jump on the Uber app, select your vehicle type and enter your destination. When someone picks up your job you will get notified in the app.

      Hope this helps,

    Can I get an Uber driver to take my son, wife, his son(14) and daughter(11)and myself from Helensvale to Brisbane Cruise Terminal with luggage in October? If so I would request a quote for return trip.

      Hi Ros,

      Thanks for your question.

      Yes, an Uber could take you along this route. According to Uber’s Fare Estimator the most cost effective ride (an UberX) would be between $82 and $109 one-way.

      Uber is a ride-on-demand service, which means you cannot pre-book your ride. You will need to request the ride the moment that you require it. An Uber in the area will then pick up the request and make their way to you.

      I hope that helps,

      Hi Ali,

      Thank you for your question. Just to confirm though that you’ve come through to finder.com.au we are an Australian financial comparison website and general information service, not actually Uber.

      Unfortunately, we do not have that information just yet, however, you’d be best to keep checking Uber’s website and see if they will be providing service in your place sometime in the future.

    Our company controls sales and marketing for many hotels here in Newcastle as well as the central coast of nsw

    Was thinking how we could offer this promo to the hotel meal promos and the many thousands of customers we have on our data base

    could be a win win for all

    Hi, I am trying to open an Uber account but I don’t past the Sign Up page. It doesn’t come up with any errors or problems, it just isn’t working. Has anyone else had this problem? How do I fix it?

      Hello Becky,

      Thanks for your question, however we are not Uber and cannot help with problems regarding their website.

      Try sending them an email, they should be able to help.

      Hi Elizabeth,

      Thanks for your question.

      The promo code is supplied to customers by Uber and therefore will be subsidised through Uber itself. It should not affect the amount earned by the Uber driver.

      Hope that helps,

      Hi Caro,

      According to the Uber Far Estimate, this ride would cost approximately $70-91 in an UberX, which is the ride sharing program’s most economic car.

      Hope that helps,

    I have an Uber account. I know that if I introduce my friend to Uber, she will get a credit to use for her first ride. But do I also get any ride credits?


    • Staff
      Stephanie | May 27, 2016

      Hi Michael,

      You can earn credits or free rides by inviting your friends to signup and ride using your personal invite code. You can find your invite code in the Uber app by tapping Free Rides in the main menu.

      Uber credit or rides will be applied to fares billed in the corresponding currency.

      Hope that helps,

    Can I pre book a uber the night before

    • Staff
      Stephanie | May 6, 2016

      Hi Cathy,

      Thanks for your question.

      As UberX is an on-demand service ordering one early is not currently available. However you can search for Ubers in your local to see how far away from you they are and estimate the time it will take for it to reach you.

      Hope that helps,
