Through an app on your smart phone, you can call a private chauffeur-driven Mercedes S Class, BMW 7 Series, Audi A8 or Jaguar to collect you within minutes.
Uber London’s app will show you how far your nearest car is away from you so that you can plan accordingly.
When you sign up, you need to give your credit card details and journeys are automatically charged to your bank card (which includes a tip), so you don’t need to worry about having enough money on you for the journey.
When we tried Uber London’s service, we found the BMW 7 series to be a luxurious way to travel around London and we enjoyed the complimentary water provided.
The driver was smart, knowledgeable and friendly, and while it was slightly more expensive than a black cab, the efficiency, ease of use and stylish car meant it was worth it.
You can access Uber London through your iPhone and Android apps or via m.uber.com – use 293m0 as the promo code to receive £10 of free credit towards your journey.
