Bubbly is flowing, fireworks are sparkling, and you’re celebrating the end of the year with your friends and family. Follow these tips and the only thing you’ll have to worry about is keeping your resolutions in 2016!

Arrive (and Leave) Early

Uber’s customer blog encourages party-goers to leave for their festivities early—before 7 p.m. And if counting down to the new year isn’t part of your NYE plan, another, less practical, tip from the company is to head home before midnight. Peak traffic hours are expected to be between 12:30 a.m. and 2:30 a.m.

Enjoy some offers and tips in between

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.

Send your status

Let your friends count down to the moment you arrive. Send trip details—which includes your estimated time of arrival as well as your driver’s first name and vehicle information—to friends or family directly through the app.

Uber Resolutions

Resolve to be considerate to your driver and follow our Code of Conduct so that everyone can enjoy the spirit of the season and every ride meets our standards for respect and common courtesy.

Set Destination (Help Driver to take back to back ride)

Set your destination in app while booking or asap you board the ride. This will help Driver to navigate to destination. You can save your address in Uber app itself by name Home or Work etc.

Contact Support

If you drop the ball and leave one of your items in your ride, get in contact with your driver directly.

How to Re-authorize or unlink paytm with Uber India App

Having and active Uber and Paytm account is good, but if something goes wrong from either Uber or paytm side, you the customer suffers a lot. You can't book your ride back home, you can't book ride to airport, railway station. It becomes annoying to have such messy technical app. We cannot predict what may happen in future but we may be ready with some preparation.

Uber does all account sweep for security measures from time to time, if it finds any suspicion, it blocks account, put hold on booking a ride, asks for re-verification of ID or payment method. Recently Paytm was hacked and some hacker were able to make payment in paytm from some other account, hance Uber took security measure and put hold on some accounts.

How can you regain access of your Uber account once it's disabled?

Update: Banned account is a pain, I have many friends who got locked out form Uber due to suspicious activity, some got their account enabled again after some conversation with Uber support and mostly are banned for life. Here is one scenario when you account may get banned. Read this story till end to get the idea.

Q. How can you regain access of your Uber account once it's disabled?

Recently uber had this scheme of "refer someone, that refferal gets 600 credits and you get 600 when he makes his/her first ride".

I made many people join , though all refferals were real and accounts were created with their permission and presence but all accounts were created from my phone .

I earned many credits. But soon my account was closed down.
Now whenever I try logging in from any acount in my phone  it gets banned within few minutes.

Is there any solution or any hack to avoid this and get my acount back ? I still have 5k credits left in my account and I desperately want it.
