Public transport in Stockholm is excellent. Top notch. Reliable, efficient, safe and clean.
But sometimes it’s nice to travel in style. Pull out your phone, press a button and your private driver is there in minutes.
That, at least, is how Uber's users travel. If you’ve never tried Uber’s service in Stockholm then now is the time to do it. Because as a reader of The Local, you will get 150 kr off your first ride with Uber – or 150 kr towards a longer trip – by using this exclusive code: thelocalsweden
Whether you want to end an evening in style with Uber’s most luxurious vehicles, dash across town in an UberBlack taxi or travel further with UberX – up to 40% cheaper than normal taxi prices – this is not an offer to ignore.
Here's how to get your free ride:
1. Download the Uber app and register.
2. Type thelocalsweden in the app under ‘Promotion’ and you'll get 150 kr off your first ride.
3. Request a car - and enjoy a convenient, safe and elegant journey.
You can easily estimate the price of the trip in the app beforehand but if it costs over 150 kr then the difference will be simply be charged to the credit card registered to your account.
Your receipt will be sent to your email address as soon as your trip is over.
If you have a question about how to use the service or how to register, send our friends at Uber an email at email@example.com. We’d hate you to miss out on your free ride.
Uber won’t replace the tunnelbana – but you’ll never need to hail a taxi again.
