The emergence of new technology has certainly started to disrupt, none more than the rise of the taxi-apps. Ever since the birth of Uber taking a cab has never been the same. Gone are the days of getting into a cab and not having a clue whether you would need to take out a mortgage to pay for the ride. Things are changing for the better.
The first and most obvious place to look for discounts is in the apps or on the rideshare companies’ respective websites. Failing that, a quick Google search should provide a whole bunch of discount codes encouraging users to use the app more and benefit from discounts.
Split payments with amigos!
One of the easiest ways to save money on rideshare apps is to use the “split fare” feature provided by both Uber and Lyft. This is a great and very easy way to make sure everyone pays their bit for the ride home.
Split payments with strangers!
This is currently being trialled in various countries. The system basically allows you to get a cut price ride by sharing a cab with somebody who is already in the cab and heading in the same direction! Not only is this a great cost cutting measure, but you also get to meet new people too, even if the ride can take a little longer to get to destination.
