I am so loving the fact that Uber has come to Cape Town recently!
I had to give my car in for a service the other morning and with my husband out of town and being in a rush to get back home to attend my pre-natal yoga class I decided to give UBER a try. I’d heard so much about it and wanted to see if it was as good as people said it was. I booked a car via the app on my phone and literally within three minutes a snazzy car pulled up; clean, air conditioned, a courteous driver, even a bottle of water, and I was home fifteen minutes later!
One of the biggest advantages of UBER is that you don't need to carry cash. The Uber app scans your credit card and automatically charges it at the conclusion of the ride – pricing is very reasonable too. It's also reliable and safe because you have the driver’s details and you can contact him and even track his route. It is great also for those trips to the city when you don’t want to mission for parking or when you are out a party and have had a few l’chaims.
For those of you who have never tried it and want to give it a shot, download the Uber app and put in pervg as your promo code and you will get your first ride free.
