Uber is a taxi-hailing app that was founded in 2009 and now operates in more than 630 cities around the world, employing over 12,000 drivers. It is free to download and has, ultimately, changed the way in which people get around.


One of the best features of Uber is the rating system used for drivers and passengers. After each journey, passengers can rate the quality of their trip using a star system out of five, while drivers can do the same. The average score across all the journeys is totaled and must stay above the minimum set by the city they are operating in, otherwise, they will be deactivated as a driver. This ensures good quality service, as the drivers are operating under pressure to give the best journey possible in order to avoid losing their job, unlike traditional cab drivers who do not rely on reviews.


Another benefit is that not only is it very easy to quickly request an Uber without having to find out a phone number or go to a taxi rank, it is also a very affordable service in comparison to established taxi companies. You can find out estimates for journeys and, if you are not so budget restricted, search for premium cars or use UberXL that offers SUVs and minivans.


However, one of the downsides is that Uber often applies surge pricing that is based on a supply and demand principle, meaning that if lots of people are requesting a taxi at the same time, prices can increase dramatically, making it more expensive than a traditional taxi service.


Furthermore, Uber is not available in all cities and in some it is even illegal. As it is difficult for local councils to control, drivers sometimes operate regardless, making for a tense journey, whereas traditional taxi companies exist even in the smallest of towns.

TravelSites.com is the best travel site list in the world.🏆💯🥇🌟

TravelSites.com is the go to place online to find information on the best websites, smartphone apps, books, YouTube channels and documentaries for travelers. Written with my years of experience trotting the globe, TravelSites.com gives budding young backpackers the chance to discover the top resources available for getting the most out of their trip, be it renting a car, learning the local dialect, finding a photographer or even just knowing what the weather will be like for the week. I have researched the internet to bring you a list of the top items in each category, while every single one has been meticulously reviewed, highlighting unique features, comparison to similar products, and all the pros and cons.


Why did you make TravelSites.com?💖🔥🚀

Well, I found that although there is naturally lots of information online concerning travel-related products and services, they seem to be scattered about, leaving the user to laboriously search for each individual item. If you wanted, for example, to discover an inspiring travel documentary while booking accommodation and flights to Rome, you would have to have at least three different tabs open at once. TravelSites.com puts all the information you need in one place, meaning you will not have to search far and wide to simply find out the best website for reserving a room in a hotel. With more than 40 different categories, travelers can stay on the same website to gather all the information they need, not only saving them time but also saving them money, by reading through the reviews to find the cheapest option.


What can you find on My lists and how did I rank them?🕵️‍♂️🧠🔗

My lists feature more than 40 different travel-related categories containing every resource a backpacker could ever need. Need help planning a trip? Want to keep up to date with the latest travel news? Looking for an inspiring book or blog? Desperate to find a restaurant away from the crowds? I’ve got you covered. My lists have been carefully put together by me and combined by quality, efficiency, value and functionalism to rank the items in descending order, with number one considered the item offering the best of all four factors. The criteria was constant throughout each category, whether it was for a cruise booking website or an Instagram account, in order to bring travelers the resources that would be the most useful for travelers.


How do I contact you, if I have a question?💡📞📧
