Just a heads up, I have never used UBER before.
I plan to book a cab for tomorrow morning at 06:30 but don't want to leave it at the last minute to book a cab.
Is UBER reliable, as I cant see any options to book in advance? (I have google'd)
Any help would be much appreciated.

I have used uber several times without any problems. Drivers will find you via GPS location on your phone which is a help if you don't know the exact location you want picking up.

Here is a £15.00 off code for new customers -> VCUK15. Also, yourself and a friend can earn £10.00 each time you get them to sign up and use the taxi services.

Very reliable, but the availability really depends on where u live. Download the app now and see how many cars are in your area

Would be nice to know if that happens at 06:30 in the morning.

I've only used Uber once. But from friends' experiences they are very reliable. I ordered my cab at the last minute and it arrived within 10/15 mins

Also try an app called Karhoo, very similar to Uber, but with a FIXED prices from a selection of cab companies in your area. You can also pre book. Payment is via your credit/debit card.

Also use code BONUS20 for £20 off your 1st ride.

I cant see that option on my app. Is there a possibility it could be location specific?

I am in London, but it definitely doesn't show me. Must be Zone 1 only.

The reviews don't look very promising. Considering reliability is what I was looking for, they seem to lack that.

Very good in the USA.

It's not really reliable for pre-planned trips, your chance of getting a car depends on if any drivers can be bothered to get up at that time.

Uber was so easy and cheaper than the quoted price from my local cab company.
I don't know why I was worried.

Thank you all for your help. Much appreciate it.

It did not allow me to use the voucher, although I am definitely a new customer.
But I did no mind as it was so much cheaper anyways.

Thank you mintcondition.

If you are a new customer, and wasn't successful in obtaining a £10 promotion, then you can contact Uber via the app and explain. They will then reimburse/refund you
