Uber £20 off via Google Maps

Google Maps is offering £20 off an Uber ride for new and existing customers.

No idea if its for selected accounts or everyone but I opened Google Maps, plotted a route home and selected the Taxi option (little man waving) and I got a popup saying £20 off this trip. I accepted and ordered and was asked to link to a new or existing Uber account, I linked to my existing and got the £20 discount.

I seen this earlier as well, I hadn't even clicked taxi and it popped up with it. It defo wasn't there during the week as I took an uber Monday and it said nothing about it

Nice, will check it out

Doesn't seem to be working for me. Kinda pleased as I've just jumped out of an Uber but used the half price android pay offer so it's not all bad

​There is no link per se, the discount is applied when you pay via android pay but the offer is pretty visible within the app. It's 50% off up to a max. discount of £5

Hello, it only seems to work if you use it for a trip there and then. I was offered it yesterday though and it's stuck around until today.

i have no android pay or anything but can see the £20 off. What paying options do i have?

First and only time I used UBER scumbag driver drove past (could see him on the app) location and billed my the minimum fare, no way of disputing just screwed over

Isn't "the little man waving" Gett?

Go into your app > swipe in from the left > select Your Trips > choose the offending trip and scroll down, choose one of the options and explain the issue you had and you'll get a refund pretty quick.

anyone know when it expires?

What Prosamuriman said. Uber are still in the 'spend investors cash' stage and it is all about customer service atm (not employees service but that is a different issue). Also as your first time using them why aren't you using one of the voucher codes for first free ride that litter the web?

Ok thanks only looked on laptop will try it next month you never know it may still be around.

Whereabouts is the taxi option? I can't see it under the "transport" options for the hypothetical route I just tried.

Edit: I just noticed where you select it so nvm.
Edited by: "kkcc" 22nd Jan

I dont see any taxi option there, its car, tram and walk.

It looks like I don't have this offer.

I tried it before signing in to uber and afterwards also. I've only used uber once before.

​same thing happened to me in Malaysia. under refunded the payment within 24 hours. There's an option on the app somewhere to complain about the driver/fare.

Taxi option is next to walking (man with his hand up)

haha a similar situation happened to me the first time using Uber........others have said try the in app support......I tried that 3 times but the scumbags ignored it........but what did work was to get on twitter and start roasting them and I got refunded rapidly.

​you can get your cash back email them

​Exactly what I'd have done. As much as I dislike twitter it's a fantastic platform to make a complaint

Not just Android Pay. Can be used on iOS too.

You must be on a laptop like me try a phone maybe ?

It does not work on my phone

Will get my £5 off tomorrow for using Android Pay but £20 would have been much better!

The only other thing which comes up for me is with the 'Gett' black taxi app which is giving £5 off on 3 rides using code 'GOOGLE' but it's more expensive than Uber but will use it for some short local journeys if it still comes up for me in the future which might be good for when I travel with my dog as find black cabs MUCH more dog friendly than regular cabs

To dispute it just go to 'Your Trips' > 'I would like a refund'. Explain why and you will get a refund instantly. Works every time.

Uber software track YOU after 'dropping lite' all the way to your house, they have no business to do that.
I find it worrisome and would never use them for this reason.

Thats the good question????

2ill give this a try thanks op

Awesome deal. I wish I could save for later.

Be very careful with uber. My normal taxi ride that normally costs £25 and when I ordered no price came up.
I asked the driver and he said it will cost £24

You don't actually get the message until after youre dropped off.
As soon as he'd driven off I get a bill for £46
UBER customer services don't care

Do you know how long the offer is for? I know you can't pre-book with Uber
