Customers can now book chauffer driven cars, via smartphone app from Wednesday.

In order to book a car, customers need to simply download the Uber app, which is made available on iPhone, Android and some Blackberry models. The customers need to give their name, email, mobile phone number and credit card details.

Uber Taxi has been running in Dubai since September and the customers were happy with the service and experience, and hence the service is now being expanded to Abu Dhabi.

We had a soft launch in Abu Dhabi four weeks ago but are officially launching the service on Wednesday,” said Sebastien Wakim, managing director of Uber Taxis in Abu Dhabi.

“We chose Abu Dhabi simply because of the demand. We found that many people here were downloading the app to book a car but, unfortunately, at the time we didn’t have a service.”

This app looks promising and will definitely be creating convenience and be a time saver for its users, who can simply log in their details, sitting wherever they are a book themselves a luxurious ride.
