UBER, everyone’s personal driver, launched in Shenzhen only a few weeks ago and Josephine was eager to try what everyone was talking about.
UBER is a downloadable app, that allows you to, as they say, travel in style. All you have to do is to press a button, indicating where you have to go, wait from 5 to 7 minutes and watch a luxury car with a private driver pull up in front of you.
What are the perks?
– No money exchange (the payment is made via Credit Card, PayPal or Alipay.
– Wi-fi, phone-charger and bottled water in the car salon
– The driver will address you by name and open the door for you with a welcoming smile
As UBER explains, the idea came to its founders in San Francisco, when they were tired of waiting for a taxi after a party. Since that day, UBER has spread over 32 countries.
Josephine took the ride early in the morning on the way to a business event and on the way back. It was a pleasant, hassle-free experience which gave her a chance to recharge her phone and take a few fun photos.
