Uber

Uber is evolving the way the world moves. By seamlessly connecting riders to drivers through our app, Uber makes cities more accessible, opening more possibilities for riders and more business for drivers.

The Uber app has several phenomenal features. It can find your location through GPS and show you approximately how far away the closest driver is. You can also select your desired car option. With Uber, all pickups are on demand and drivers arrive within minutes, so there’s no need to schedule a ride in advance.

You can also rate your driver. Uber takes this feedback seriously so you can be assured of a high-quality experience every time.

You can use Uber 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Just open the app when you’re ready to ride and it will connect you to a driver nearby. As a Discovery Card holder, you will get up to 20% cash back on your trips with Uber when paying on your Discovery Card. Uber is available in Johannesburg, Pretoria, Durban and Cape Town..
