During May 9 – June 9, Uber Romania doubles the number of free taxi rides for those inviting someone to try its services for the first time. Thus, according to a press release, each recommendation can bring a race of RON 40 instead of RON 20, as is normal.
To make a recommendation, each Uber user has a personal code that can be sent to anyone who wants to try a safe ride, cashless and without tip.
With that code, a new user can make a first free race. For example, if someone gives personal code to 15 people, and they register their account and make a first race with Uber, will receive 15 races worth more than RON 40, which can be used within 90 days.
Recently, Uber dropped tariffs in Bucharest for uberX service by 10 percent, to RON 1,45 per kilometer, RON 0,26 per minute and RON 8 the minimum tariff.
The controversial application for smartphone, that connects in real time the passengers and the drivers, was launched in February 2015 in Romania as uberX Romania, Bucharest being the first city to benefit from the platform.
Also, Uber decided to chose Romania to launch UberSELECT service last year in Bucharest and in premiere in Europe. This app gives users access to superior range cars, such as Audi A4, Volkswagen Passat and Skoda Octavia, a luxurious step above uberX, the low cost alternative.
