App-based taxi service Uber launches in Birmingham this week – and to celebrate, Brum Notes readers can enjoy £15 off your first ride.
Uber makes phoning for a cab a thing of the past, letting you book a driver with just a couple of taps of your smartphone, while there’s no need for cash either as it takes payments straight from your account once your journey is over. The Uber app also tells you how far away your driver is and how long it will be before you can get picked up.
Birmingham has today become the fourth city in the UK where the company is now operating its UberX service. Here’s a few examples of typical prices for an Uber taxi in Brum:
Birmingham New Street Station to Selly Oak – £5-7
The Bullring to Edgbaston – £4-6
City Centre to Birmingham Airport – £14-17
And to give you a chance to try out the service, we’ve teamed up with Uber to offer all of you lovely readers £15 off your first journey. And redeeming your voucher couldn’t be simpler:
– Download the Uber app for your smartphone (iPhone, Android or Windows Phone)
– Tap the menu icon in the top left hand corner
– Tap ‘Promotions’
– Type in your promo code: BRUMNOTES
And that’s it! Just use the promo code BRUMNOTES to enjoy a £15 free ride on us… Feel free to spread the word and share the code with your friends.
