Whether you’ve used Uber in the past or you’re signing up for the first time, you will be eligible for the free uberX trips this weekend. There are some conditions to be aware of: trips are free up to €25 per journey. If you exceed this, the extra amount will be charged to your account. In addition, you can only avail of five free trips per account.
Uber says that the service is typically 10-30% cheaper than hailing a non-Uber taxi. It lists prices such as €13 + toll to get from Dublin City Centre to Dublin Airport and €11 to go from Dundrum to Stephen’s Green.
Uber previously launched the UberBLACK service to ferry people around Dublin in class and style, but uberX is aimed at those who want to get from point A to point B in the cheapest and most convenient way possible.
