Never heard of Uber?
Uber is the next level in professional transport services. Uber seamlessly connects you to their drivers through the convenience and simplicity of their live app, opening a new paradigm of possibilities for riders and drivers alike.
Can’t pick up the kids from sports practice? Need a quick transfer? Feeling a bit too tipsy to drive? Car gone in for repairs?
The Uber app will find your location through GPS and show you approximately how far away their closest driver is. You can also select your desired car option. With Uber all pickups are on demand and drivers arrive within minutes. You can use Uber 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Just open the app when you’re ready to ride and it will connect you to a driver nearby.
Uber takes feedback seriously so you can be assured of a high-quality experience every time, and if it’s not awesome, rate them straight from the app!
Here’s the best part - get up to 45% off your Uber trips with Discovery Insure’s new DriveMe benefit.
If you are a member of Discovery Insure then you are eligible to join Vitalitydrive, a unique driver behaviour programme that rewards you for driving well. Not only do they reward you for driving well but with benefits such as DriveMe you can get 25% off your Uber trips, up to a maximum spend of R1 000 (before discount) for each primary driver, each month. If you are registering with Uber for the first time, the first trip is free! (up to a maximum of R250.)
Uber is also part of the DiscoveryCard store network so, if you’re a cardholder and pay using your DiscoveryCard, you’ll get up to an additional 20% cash back on your trip. It’s as easy as that!
