You may have a need to move around in Kuala Lumpur and you do not own a car. Uber is a car rental service provider in Malaysia which allows you to register for its app through its website. This smart phone app enables you to connect with a vast network of Uber car drivers who can offer you a reliable ride, ranging from premium fares to low cost fares in a matter of minutes from the time you book a ride. All you need to do is just tap on the app and a car will come directly to your home or your desired place of pick up. The payment could be cash less as you could pay through PayTM method or credit cards.
You may be headed to the airport or for work or you may just like to go out of town. Uber will connect you with a car and a driver in a matter of minutes. Your driver will know where he or she has to take you with the help of GPS guided maps.
Uber is perhaps the ideal way to get wherever you want to go in Malaysia. You can select your ride and then set up your drop off point. You will be immediately informed through SMS the full details of the vehicle and the driver who will be picking you up.
As soon as you feed in your destination, you will be able to understand the route that your car driver will follow and your estimated time of arrival at that destination. You do not have to constantly give any directions to the driver.
Rides for all occasions and at different prices
The ride that you select with Uber could be an economy one or a premium one. It can be through accessibility or through a carpool. These rides are always smarter than the normal taxis or the yellow cabs.
For business travel, you can keep these work trips separate. You can utilise an Uber Pool drive and share the ride with other travelers and save on the cost of that ride. Uber Pool will match you with other riders who are headed in the same direction as yours. It is the cheapest way to travel.
Uber makes it clear that there is no need to tip the drivers as their service charge is incorporated in the fare construction. All additional stops between direct routes will amount to higher fares. Tolls and surcharges are always added to your fare.
Malaysians prefer the Uber taxis to the conventional taxis.
