From April 2018, please use our new Uber sign-up code UBERHEADFORPOINTS via this link, or download the app and add the code via the promo code box on the ‘Payment’ tab. This gets you £3 off your first ride.
If you haven’t heard of Uber, it is the new ‘luxury taxi’ service available in London, having already been operating in New York, San Francisco, Chicago and Paris, amongst other places, for some time.
The core of the service is the Uber app for your smartphone. Download it, and at the click of a button you can summon a BMW, Mercedes, Audi or Jaguar to your door. Cars come complete with heated seating, water and magazines. No cash is required as all rides are automatically charged to your Uber account.
Uber is currently offering a £15 credit to new customers via HFP. Download the Uber app, add the promo code HEADFORPOINTS and £15 will be deposited in your account.
Typical fares can be found here – certainly more than a black cab but not hugely more than, say, Addison Lee. Airport trips come at a fixed price. And the £15 credit means your first trip will be a good deal anyway.
