Hello fellow Marriott Rewardians.
Last week whilst in China, I used UBER twice while in Shanghai from the hotel to the Pudong (PVG) airport. UBER is a relatively new service in this country but both of my experiences were positive with good clean cars and safe drivers. HINT: get the concierge to enter the destination in Chinese as I don't think it is possible to request in English currently...BTW both trips cost around $30-35 each way for the 45'+ trips. Good value.Funny thing is I had NEVER used UBER EVER until this trip because it was easier than getting a cab during the morning rushhour at the J.W. Marriott Tomorrow Square even though I had reserved a cab.:
Has anyone else ever used UBER in China?
BTW...J.W. Marriott Tomorrow Square ------OUTSTANDING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Your trip sounds spectacular @702rugbyref! I have never used Uber in China, but I do use it frequently in every city to which I travel in the United States. I have found the service to be incredibly prompt, reliable and clean. The drivers have been professional, and a cut above any traditional cab experience. Lastly, I have found the rates to be less than half that of a cab when I choose UberX, or comparable when using UberBlack.
ive used uber pool several times before. From my experience is that usually the other person is maybe 2 or 3 blocks off your route. On several times the people who i was sharing with were already in the car and my location was on the way to theirs, so essentially it was just like getting an UberX but with lower cost. I say if you are in no rush and looking to save then its a good option.
But if you have luggage, i would recommend just getting UberX
Uber has been great for me. I've used it in multiple US cities and also in Canada & Australia.
