Dealhacker: Uber Offering Free Taxi Rides In Sydney

App-based car and taxi service Uber has a good deal for Sydneysiders this week: two free trips of up to $30 each in an Uber taxi.

The deal runs until Friday at midday. Here are the conditions:

  • You need to register for Uber and book a taxi via the Uber app (iOS, Android or BlackBerry).
  • The offer is for a standard taxi trip, not Uber's more expensive 'BLACK' service offered through dedicated vehicles.
  • If your trip costs more than $30, you'll pay the difference. You can't use the offer more than twice during the week.

I suspect this offer might make it harder to score an Uber taxi ride this week, but hey, I'm not about to turn down free travel.



    I have a sour taste in my mouth from these guys. I signed up for a introductory deal recently that I saw through OzBargain, entered my coupon code and got a validation that my first ride under $30 was free, Used the service (Very nice by the way) and then got charged to my card. When I queried it, they said the coupon was only for Melbourne between certain dates (I'm in Sydney). At no time did they send me anything to tell me this - which they could have as they had my email and phone number, and the confirmation mentioned no such terms and conditions.

    Technology is so great these days. There are apps for nearly everything it seems, including taxi services and deals. I will definitely try to use these services when I am in Australia.
