It’s always a tough task to book a cab without an app on the phone. Now, Uber has announced a new mobile site which makes easy for people to hire a cab without installing a mobile app. Users can pay their rides without a mobile wallet or credit card. ‘dail.uber.com’ will cover users who don’t have an app or who don’t want to install an app for some reason.
This new service is available now in few Indian cities like Nagpur, Kochi, Guwahati and Jodhpur. A user can avail cab by just visiting ‘dail.uber.com’ and login or sign up to Uber with a mobile number. The user will be receiving a call from the concerned driver assisting your pickup. Once after reaching the destination, the fare for the trip can be paid in cash.
Uber hopes this new site helps to win over customers who have no room for the app which is quite common in small cities in emerging markets. This might also help customers by negotiating the norm of Strict app download for the clients who wish to use the app for the first time.
Uber made a unique working plan in India when compared to its global operations. This leading cab service only accepts credit and debit cards in US and Europe, while it introduced cash payment and pre-paid wallets for customers in the Indian market. Alongside, it also offered other transportation categories like bike and auto rickshaws at one point. To surpass its local rival Ola, Uber came up with new strategies as per the market scenario and current demands.
This US–based company has been facing a lot of trouble in the recent past. Surge pricing is the main issue faced by the Uber from the state government authorities in India. It also has suspended its two-wheeler taxi as the Karnataka govt. seized its vehicles for violating Motor Vehicles Act. Uber is also partnering with startups in India like Zomato and Snapdeal.
