The support you asked for is here. We’re excited to announce the launch of 24/7 phone support for drivers and riders across South Africa! You will now have a dedicated phone support line if you need need to retrieve a lost item or need to query a trip.

To call the support line, all you have to do is tap ‘Help’ in the main menu of the Uber app and select the ‘Call’ option. No extra calls to make, no phone numbers to look up. It’s that easy. Prefer to chat via text for support? No worries – you’ll still be able to contact our team through the ‘Help’ section of the app, with the added  option to give us a toll-free call!

How to access customer support line:

  • Open the Uber app
  • Select the menu button (top left-hand corner)
  • Tap ‘Help’
  • Select ‘Call Support’ – this will be its own menu option
  • You’ll then be connected to the support team

In an emergency, we suggest that you still call 10111 or use the in-app emergency button which connects you to Uber’s third-party security providers.

The Fine Print
