Uber Launched in Split and Dubrovnik

uber croatia

Uber, a technology platform that connects riders with drivers, launched uberX yesterday in Split and Dubrovnik…

From now on locals and tourists visiting the Dalmatian coast will be able to order a professional driver to pick them up via the Uber app.

To celebrate one of the most beautiful touristic areas in Europe, Uber will offer a weekend with free rides. All users, new and existing, will be able to request up to two free rides using the code BESPLATNIVIKEND – Croatian for FREEWEEKEND.

uberX will be available in Split all year long and in Dubrovnik during high season, from June to October.

uberX is present in Croatia since October, 2015. Every driver on the uberX platform is a qualified and licensed professional who has passed rigorous criminal background and holds commercial insurance. Every driver is self-employed, with the flexibility to chose when to work.

Uber is a cashless service as all payments are made electronically using a credit card linked to the user’s account. This means that professional drivers no longer have to carry cash and all transactions are fully traceable. At the end of every trip a receipt is automatically emailed to the rider which includes a breakdown of the fare, details of the driver and an overview of the exact route taken, as all rides are tracked by GPS.

More information about the service and pricing is available here.
