August 22, 2018 / South Africa

In the age of cell phones and constant communication, we have become accustomed to the quick, efficient transfer of information. Parents and grandparents might yearn for “the good ol’ days” when technology was nowhere to be found and people used printed maps, but technology has come a long way since then and become super useful. While screen addiction is a real problem, there’s no denying the practicality of mobile phones with apps and quick internet access.

If you’re still living in the “good ol’ days”, we’re here to tell you more about how Uber can change your life. You can control every step of your ride from your cell phone with a tap on the screen. Real-time updates are one of the most basic and useful features on the Uber app, allowing you to track your driver’s location and pinpoint exactly when it’s time to wait on the pavement.

You can share a ride with a friend and split the fare via the app without ever taking cash out of your wallet or swapping bank details. There’s no awkward “you owe me” conversation to be had two weeks later because on the app, splitting your fare is instant! Don’t forget that you can also add multiple destinations, meaning you can drop off you’re your friends on the way home.

Heading to the airport at 4AM and not sure how to get there on time? Schedule a ride with the Uber app a couple of days beforehand and stress less. You’ll even get a reminder and an update on your driver’s ETA, so you don’t need to worry about rushing to the check-in desk anymore.

Riding with Uber is one of the most efficient ways to get around, never waiting long for your ride and easily ordering one on the spot. Gone are the days of planning ahead for a night out, having to get cash out to pay your driver or not being able to contact them when they’re late. You can also stay safe by following your ride on the map, making sure your driver takes you straight home and having in-app access to helplines.

The app also provides support 24 hours a day. Whether you want to report an issue, need guidance in setting up your profile or don’t know how to manage your ride, you can find it all in the app.
