Emirates offering free Uber trips at DXB

Emirates has launched a new partnership with Uber so passengers arriving in Dubai can continue their journey in style.

The airline is offering free or discounted rides to and from DXB for bookings made from now until Wednesday July 31.

Customers in Economy Flex Plus can get two free rides from anywhere in Dubai up to the value of Dhs120 per trip.

Meanwhile, those booked into Economy Flex can get 50 percent off two rides – up to the value of Dhs60 per trip.

The offer is available to those who book via the Emirates website during the period, for travel up to Saturday August 31.

Khalid Bel Jaflah, Emirates’ divisional vice president of commercial operations for UAE and Oman, said: “We are very pleased to strengthen our partnership with Uber and extend this popular offer to customers in our home market of Dubai.

“We remain committed to providing a fantastic customer experience for our customers in the UAE so they can enjoy a seamless journey on the ground and in the air.”

If you’re not eligible for the free ride, or are just looking for a different transport option, then check this out.

Careem has revealed a new option to book RTA taxis directly via the app, with users able to pay the fare on the meter automatically using their debit or credit card.

And in even better news, RTA drivers are given a map and directions to the rider's destination.

Careem is promising that it's "the most affordable ride in Dubai", although a small booking fee is added the fares are comparable to regular taxi rates.

To book, all you need to do is open up your Careem app and select 'RTA Taxi' on the car options menu (it's right above the confirm pickup button if you can't find it).

At the end of the journey, the fare will be automatically deducted from your chosen debit or credit card when the driver clicks 'end trip'.
Until Wed Jul 31. For more information, go to uber.com.
