  • Rides booked with Uber x Berlinale cost exactly the same as with the UberX option on the same route.

  • The Uber x Berlinale option is available to riders in Berlin wanting a ride to and from one of Berlinale’s cinemas. In order to book a ride with Uber x Berlinale option to a designated cinema location, the rider needs to be within the service area within the Berlin S-Bahn Ring for the ride option, type in the address of the Berlinale cinema and confirm. In order to request a return trip from the Berlinale cinema, riders need to be in the cinema’s pickup area and provide a destination address within the Uber x Berlinale option’s service area.

  • No, rides with the Uber x Berlinale option may only be booked for trips to or from Berlinale cinema locations. If you wish to ride someplace else, select UberX or any other ride option available in the city.

  • You can pay for your booked rides like for any other rides option.

  • As with all ride options, the actual time of arrival is dependent on the popularity of the ride option (the number of people trying to book the option at a given time), available drivers and their location. Sometimes this will mean longer arrival times. That is why Uber x Berlinale’s service area is limited to central districts of Berlin so that your product experience is more optimal.

  • We know that Berlinale premiere tickets are like hot cakes - everyone wants them but not everyone can get them. We want all the riders to have equal chances at snatching a win, therefore exchanging tickets is not possible. If you already know you cannot attend, share the tickets with your friends and family who you know will put them to a good use.

  • No, you cannot. The tickets are competition prizes and as such cannot be sold.

  • Make sure you are adding the code in the right section: open the app, select your account, click on “Wallet” icon and scroll down to the very bottom where “Promotions” section is visible. Click on “Add a promo code” button and type in your promo code. Do not add the promo code via “Add a voucher code” button - it will not work. Still cannot add the promo code? Please reach out via the Help section in the app.

Uber arranges transport contracts with professional and licensed rental car companies. Uber itself does not offer any transport service and is not responsible for the transport as such.
