Check the price

Surge Pricing shouldn’t be a surprise. Let’s toast to you running a Fare Estimate in the app before you ride. To avoid the highest fares, head to the festivities early or catch a ride right after midnight.

Split your fare (Keep your friends closer tonight)

Use fare split if you’re rolling with the whole party or take uberPOOL if it’s just you and one friend and it’s available in your city. Split-fare feature can save upto 83.33% fare for you.

Confirm your driver

You wouldn’t want to walk into the wrong party, so make sure you don’t walk into the wrong car. Confirm your driver’s car model and license plate in the app before you hop in your ride. And if you’re still not sure, you can always text or call your driver.

Keep your number masked

If you can’t find your driver or want to share more pickup information, call or text through the app your number will always stay anonymous.
