Could you tell me whether Uber drivers are available to take me to the Cape Town airport from the Water Club at 5 a.m. or do I need to book the driver ahead of time and is that possible?

I used Uber in Cape Town today. From 34 St Georges Mall to District 6 Clinic and back. I was charged R26-00 per trip. i.e. 2 x R26-00. Upon checking my bank account I saw 3 deductions of R26-00. INCORRECT. When I ordered the Uber from District 6 Clinic back to 34 StGeorges Mall, the first driver drove straight past me and never returned. Said trip was cancelled and they sent another car. I am not responsible for this trip and would like a R26-00 REFUND. Thanks BANKING DETAILS: E M Labuschagne 24/06/2019 Uber Trip (Card 2112) 26.00

"A number of Uber drivers have taken to the Cape Town Uber forum to voice their concerns over the Uber service. Uber drivers have also been sharing their experiences with the Cape Town Uber forum.

Uber has been operating in the Cape Town area for quite some time now, but only recently has it started offering carpooling service, which has caught the attention of the public.

While the Cape Town Uber forum has been quite active in recent times, they are looking to make it even more so now that the Uber carpool service has officially launched in the area.

The forum has now been updated with a number of Uber-related posts, which can be read below.

Uber drivers share their experiences with Cape Town Uber

One of the most popular posts on the Cape Town Uber forum is one from an Uber driver who posted a story about how the Uber carpool service was quite effective in helping him save money and make more money."

When we arrived in Cape Town we were so impressed by what the average price was for a taxi. For a female worker from Ghana to Cape Town, that's a great price! Short Trip Vouchers: By going to a VoucherShop and asking for "West Africa Vouchers" or "Kampala Africa Vouchers" we were able to get fantastic deals, $45 for a weekly bus ticket to a town.

I booked an Uber to pick me up at 0935 from my retirement village, today, 6th October At 0945 I went down to the gate and round the corner I saw what looked like an Uber car sitting in a lay-by. Yes he was my driver, he claimed to have called my phone twice, and had asked at the gate for me. I asked who he had asked for, and he used my first name only, so obviously Security would not know me by that.
He said he had cancelled the call and asked how much I was quoted: R77. He dropped me off and I gave him R90
I tried to book a return Uber, when my Doctor's Appointment was done. I was notified that the fare was R76 and I had not given the driver enough and I was R25 outstanding on the first fare.
I got a licensed cab home R90 and deleted my Uber App. YOUR driver gave the wrong information at our Security Gate and I did not underpay the driver. Your company got it wrong!!

Uber in Cape Town

Popular Uber Cape Town airport fares requests for pickup at airport facilities: Cape Town International Airport, Airport, Cape Town Airport Transfers & Chauffeur Drive, Airport Cape Town, Road Lodge Cape Town International Airport, Airport Approach Road, Hotel Verde Cape Town Airport, Cape Town Airport, Cape Town International Airport Air Traffic Control Tower, Cape Town Airport Shuttle.

When you look up the fare estimates for Uber in Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa - it looks fairly familiar. There is a base fare, a charge per mile and a charge per minute. It looks like the pricing structure you know well from all the miles you have logged in Cape Town cabs. But Uber Fare Estimator actually uses a bit different pricing model. Uber taxis in Cape Town charge riders per mile when moving, and per minute when idling. Even so, Uber rates do beat cab fares in Cape Town.

It's also important to note that you don't have to tip your Uber taxi driver. And most people do tip their Cape Town taxi driver.

If you add a tip of 20% to the Cape Town cab fares, Uber looks like an even better deal and beats out other Cape Town taxis' prices.
