    So Uber cabs is a Smartphone based Taxi Service thats been around for quite some time worldover and now has been making inroads into the Indian market.

    The Service touts its hassle free on demand cab booking and instant e-payment as its USP, you just need to install the Mobile app onto your smartphone, create an account - give it your Credit/Debit Card details & you're set.

    Currently operating in Bangalore & Hyderabad, Ubers fleet consists of luxury BMWs & Volvo to Innova, Accords.

    I recently happened to make use of the services of Uber Cabs after a late night movie show, when Autos hound you for 2x-3x fare, As the movie show ended and we were exiting the mall, launched the Uber app which got our location via GPS and showed which & how many (four at the time) Uber cabs were nearby, Simply tap and select the Cab you want to call and viola a Volvo S60 was waiting for us outside in under 4 mins.

    Just tell them the destination and you're off. The driver was courteous and gladly answered the dozen questions we had about the service. The cab fare is fixed for 24x7 and when your journey is over you just exit the cab. The payment automatically gets charged on your Credit/Debit card, totally hassle free travel.

    Uber has a promotional offer going on for first time customers, just create a free account using a referral URL and you will get Rs. 300 starter balance. Additionally you can invite others to join using your own referral code and get Rs. 300 for each new registration.

    Fairly economical too, since auto is Rs.8/Km.
