Uber launches in Hyderabad, get 2 free rides!

Uber has been finding its way around India pretty quickly. In September, Uber launched in Bangalore, its first Indian city. In October, they launched in Delhi, and now they’ve launched in Hyderabad. To me, pricing comes across as very reasonable across these cities. Take a look:






New Delhi




Hyderabad is at a SecretUber stage at this moment, which means a few limos on the road and Uber is ironing out the issues.

I’ve worked with Uber in the past to be able to offer you all two free rides this year on Uber in India. You could still try out this promocode BOARDINGAREA till December 31, 2013 on a new account and you can get two rides upto Rs. 500 each free with this code. If you sign-up via my referral link, you get another Rs. 300 to your account for your first ride.

So, there you go, enjoy the Uber experience in your cities, and I am waiting for them to launch in Mumbai.

  3. Hi AJ, something seems wrong with the code “boardingarea”; 2 free trip upto INR500. Though it is added to my Uber profile under promotions, my 2 rides has been deducted from my credit balances I earned from Hellohyd and others. It still seems that my 2 free “boardingarea” rides are intact.

    Not sure whats going wrong here.

  4. I chose India every time.. not sure whts happening.. but people who got 10 GBP were extremly happy 😉
    Another thing.. use “hellohyd” for 300 credits valid till 31Jan14. Not sure is it valid only in Hyd.

  5. Hi AJ, a big thanks for the heads-up.. My wife took the 1st ride yesterday and it was awesome.. One thing I would like to point out is regarding the referrals… I referred few friends today… but they got amount credits in different currencies. One got $10USD, other 10GBP and another $10 SGD. Any clues ?

  6. Seems that they are still crunching numbers to arrive at the proper 1st ride referral incentive. It was 500 bucks last week and now it is 300 bucks.
