BUCKLE UP: UBER IS TAK­ING TO THE SKY

Marie Claire (South Africa) - - AGENDA -

UBERCHOP­PER

See the Mother City from the sky with your very own UberChop­per ex­pe­ri­ence. Uber has part­nered with Cape Town He­li­copters to of­fer scenic trips at the touch of a smart­phone but­ton. It makes a breathtaking gift for some­one you love (very much!), or a hol­i­day treat for you and your friends.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Us­ing the Uber app on your smart­phone, se­lect your lo­ca­tion and re­quest UberChop­per.An UberBlack car will pick you up and whisk you to the he­li­pad at the V&A Water­front. After a flip around the Cape skies, another UberBlack takes you back home. There is no need for cash or tips – like all Uber ex­pe­ri­ences, pay­ment is charged di­rectly to your credit card, which is linked to the app.

WHERE DOES IT GO?

You can choose from three trips: a flight along the coast and over False Bay, pass­ing Fish Hoek and Muizen­berg; a flight from Cape Town to Cape Point; or a cus­tomised flight to any he­li­pad in Cape Town.

ALL ABOUT UBER

If you haven’t yet joined the Uber craze, here’s what you need to know: Us­ing an app down­loaded for An­droid, iPhone, Black­Berry 7 and Win­dows Phone, you can re­quest a car to col­lect you at almost any lo­ca­tion and drop you off where you want to go. Your Uber pro­file is linked to your credit card, so there’s no scram­bling for cash. By seam­lessly con­nect­ing pas­sen­gers and driv­ers, Uber makes ci­ties more ac­ces­si­ble and opens up more pos­si­bil­i­ties. Uber is avail­able in more than 210 ci­ties in 45 coun­tries, in­clud­ing Cape Town, Dur­ban and Jo­han­nes­burg (in­clud­ing Pre­to­ria).

THE DE­TAILS

UberChop­per is avail­able Mon­day to Sun­day, 9am-5pm. Prices start at R1 800 per per­son, with a min­i­mum of two peo­ple per trip. Heli­copter­scapetown.co.za
