We've been long-time users of the ride-booking app. Uber not only takes the uncertainty of finding a taxi away, but it's a doddle to use as well.
Simply choose your ride (from the traditional UberX to swanky UberLUX), set your pickup location, and wait for your driver to arrive. You'll see your driver's picture and vehicle details, and can track their arrival on the map. If you don't want any nasty surprises at the end of the journey you can get a Fare Estimate before you set off, and also check for price surges.
The newly-updated Uber for iOS 10 means it's even easier to hail a ride. Instead of tapping the app, you can call on Siri to take charge of your travel plans.
Uber is currently available 16 cities across the UK, including: London, Manchester, Leeds, Birmingham, Newcastle, Sheffield, Bristol, Merseyside, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Nottingham, Portsmouth, Leicester, Belfast, Southampton & Cardiff.
