    Default Uber London - travel in style!

    Have been using Uber to get around the last few weeks - absolutely love it. Highly recommended if you want to get around in style.

    The cars in London are either BMW 7 Series, Merc S Class, Audi A8 or Jaguar XF.

    No having to hail a cab, and you don't need cash on you to pay as it's all done through the app. And the drivers are so courteous!

    Wont be going back to black cabs or mini cabs in a hurry!

    Cheers, just got the app and signed up.

    And their UberX looks as though it is quite a bit cheaper than good old Addison Lee as well for when you don't need to be ballin.

    Cool

    They don't have many UberX cars on the road at the moment as they only launched it a few weeks back, but I can imagine that once they do - it will take off! 30% less than a black cab for a BMW 3 Series etc.

    There are few promo codes floating around - try SQUAREMEAL for a £20 credit.

    Enjoy!

    Big thumbs up from me. I used it lastnight... Got an E class Merc from Regents Street out to my home for £21 (Although it actually cost me £1 after a couple of ten quid credits!) Addison Lee is about £40. And he went a long way round.

    I'm spreading the word. For anyone who uses cabs let alone wants a limo service it's a no-brainer.

    I'll give the squaremeal code a try tonight. Thanks.

    Uber London is perfect for me - I don't know London, I hate black cabs because of how tall I am and the cab drivers won't STFU!

    Only 'soccer'!

    I managed to get an UberX last night. Trip from Chelsea to Balham on a Saturday night peak time cost £10! Literally half the price of a black cab! Love it!

    WUT?
    You hate black cabs even though they have more leg and head room than any 7 series or S Class?
    If you don't want to talk to the driver, close the partition.

    Unfortunately I couldn't get one in Dalston at 2am on Saturday night, not overly surprising though to be honest! By it's very nature I think it's going to pretty West End-centric for a while. Shame that you can't request one even if there's none in the immediate area.
