New : Scheduled Rides in select neighborhoods

With just a few taps on your app, you can schedule your ride 15 minutes to 30 days in advance and have the comfort of knowing your Uber will be there when it’s time to head out.


How does it work?
  •  Select UberSELECT and tap “Schedule a Ride.” 
  • Set your pickup date, time, location, and destination. 
  • Confirm the details of your upcoming trip and tap “Schedule UberSELECT.” You can cancel at anytime before your ride is on the way to avoid a cancellation fee. 
  • We’ll send you reminders both 24 hours and 30 minutes in advance of your pickup. You’ll be notified after your ride is on the way, as well as whether surge pricing applies. 
Scheduled Rides are available in select neighborhoods only in the UAE!
When you’re in an area where the feature is available, you will see the “Schedule a Ride” button in your Uber app.

New to UBER in Dubai or Abu Dhabi?

Uber is an on-demand car service that allows you to request private drivers through applications for iPhone and Android devices.

The service utilizes dispatch software to send the nearest driver to your location. Don’t be fooled into thinking this is some sort of shared ride or cab service – Uber will send you a private taxi-style car.

The service provides a cashless solution that charges your ride directly to the credit card on file with your account.

Uber offers a 40AED discount on your first ride with this promo code ‘UBERJEANKE’. Make it easy for yourself by using this link to get the 40AED free credit automatically.
Enjoy your free ride!🙂


How to install and use the Uber-app?
  • After signing up online, you can download the Uber-app in the App Store for your iPhone or from the Play Store for your Android device
  • Sign in on the app, wait for the app to connect and type or search for your pickup location (make sure your GPS is enabled).
    You can also move the pin around on the map, until it points on your current location. Be sure the address matches your location or waiting times can get longer! 
  • Click on the arrow to set your pickup location and then you can request your ride. If you want to know how much it will cost you, just press the Fare Estimate and enter your destination.
  • After your ride with Uber, don’t forget to rate the driver (up to) 5 stars.
