We’ve got great news, you don’t have to keep nagging mates to pay up any more

It’s always a mad frantic rush to get all your mates out of the house, into a cab and then to a club, but who’s going to pick up the bill?

Luckily Uber have found a way to freeze out the friend who annoyingly never pays you back with a convenient new fare split feature.

Not heard of Uber before? They’re no doubt in a city near you! They offer cheap, reliable rides at the touch of a button in London, Manchester, Dublin, Leeds, Birmingham, Newcastle, Bristol, Sheffield, Slough, Windsor and Maidenhead – you’ll never be left in the dark without a ride.

Already in over 320 cities in 57 countries, Uber connects users with drivers in their area, providing a cheap, convenient, safe – and stylish – ride around town.

Here are ten reasons why you should sign up right now.

1. Tab readers get £15 off their first Uber journey with promo code: THETABUK

That’s basically £15 of free money. Forget chipping in for a taxi next time you’re heading out – download the app and enter the promo code THETABUK to save actual money you can spend on an extra round.

Plus, once you’ve signed up and taken your first ride, you can earn free credit by inviting friends to join Uber too – a free trip for them and a free trip for you!

2. Uber is everywhere

Whether you’re going to the club at uni or heading out at home during the holidays, Uber has you covered.

And now they’ve launched in loads of cities outside London such as Sheffield and Bristol, meaning you don’t have to miss out on getting home on a budget.

Not in your city yet? Don’t worry, Uber is expanding rapidly and will be hitting other cities across the UK and Scotland in the coming months!

3. Save even more money and split the fare with up to six friends with just the tap of a button

It’s most people’s pet hate. That one friend who conveniently ‘forgets’ to pay you back. Uber lets you split the fare between different accounts during the ride itself, so you never have to worry about chasing your friends up for the money they owe – it just comes off all of your accounts equally! Here’s how to do it.

Going out in a big group? You can now split the fare up to six ways.

4. It’s quick and simple to order a car- and you can get a quote in advance

With just the touch of a button, Uber sends the nearest available driver to your location. It really couldn’t be easier and gives you plenty of time to focus on the important things (i.e. getting ready, grabbing another drink or staying out longer).

Most importantly, you can also get a quote for your fare in advance, so you know how much you’ll be charged before your driver even arrives.

5. Wherever you may end up, your GPS will find your location for you

Instead of requiring an address to pick you up from, Uber uses your phone’s GPS to give your driver your location. That means you’ll always be able to get a lift, even if you’ve got no idea where you actually are (perfect for getting home from those random house parties and avoiding those painful walks of shame in fancy dress!).

6. You’re given all your drivers’ information before they arrive

Uber shows you the driver’s name, photo and car registration as soon as they can be assigned to you, ensuring absolute trust and transparency on all your rides. For peace of mind, you can also see the rating they’ve been given by other Uber users and you’ll have access to their contact details in case you need to get in touch.

7. It’s a bargain

Not only can you get your first ride free and even more free rides for referring your friends, all other rides are typically 30-50% cheaper than any other car service!  You can check out your predicted fare before you travel. Studying at Bristol and want to get from UWE to The Triangle for a night out? Download the app now and get there for just £11!

8. Don’t bother waiting around outside – the app tells you exactly when your Uber is arriving

The days of being left bored and anxious until your ride shows up are over. The Uber app lets you track your driver’s progress, giving you a live countdown to when they’re going to arrive. You’ll also get a notification to let you now they are outside!

You can even share your estimated time of arrival with your mates (if they also have the app) meaning there’s now no excuse for people not to be ready in time!

Forget trying to find a cash machine mid-journey, which makes your fare more pricey.

Uber takes payment straight from your registered card or PayPal account once your journey is completed.

Next you’ll be sent an invoice by email showing you the exact cost of your ride as well as the route you took.
