It’s no secret that we’re a great supporter of successful women in the UAE and worldwide, so when we heard about Uber’s latest promotion, giving free transport to women, our ears pricked up. 

To mark International Women’s Day on March 8 private car hire company, Uber, are offering up to Dhs80 off your first journey. So, for example, if you use the Uber private car service and your journey fare comes to Dhs90, you will only get charged Dhs10. If your journey costs less than Dhs80 then your ride is absolutely free!

To make things a bit more exciting, also on March 8, you can opt to travel with Miss World runner-up and advocate for women’s rights, Jessica Kahawaty, who will give you opportunity to win gifts from Unilever and Lou’s Sweet Treats during your trip.

How it works:

  • Download the Uber app on your smartphone between 4pm and 8pm on March 8
  • Set your delivery location in and around the Marina area and click on the Jessica icon
  • If she’s available, Jessica will come and pick you up
  • All payments are done directly through the app, so no need for cash

To receive your Dhs80 off your first journey, use the promo code Jessica.
