CALLING ALL CARS! Ubering at Your Own Risk #Uber #Holidaypartydriving
December 17, 2016
If you’re planning on taking an Uber or using a car service during the holiday party time, you’ve got to read this story. Last year, this happened to me.
A friend and I were planning on going from Pembroke Pines to Miami Beach on New Years Eve for a party at a swanky, beachside home. On a normal day the drive would be 40 minutes.
Because of traffic and our intention to have a few drinks our inclination was to “Uber it” for the evening. I initiated the Uber driver from my home in Pembroke, and then picked about 15 minutes towards Miami Beach, then to our destiny. The trek began at 7 p.m.
There were some minor delays along the way. Traffic was heavy, even that early. My friend wasn’t ready when we arrived, so I waited with the patient Uber driver, who smiled congenially the entire time. Little did I know that as we continued on our journey, the Uber rates were fluctuating up and down from 3x the normal cost all the way to 15x the normal cost.
As we were trying to circumvent traffic, each of us had suggestions to avoid the long delays on I95, because it was literally stopped cold. We took the Express lane, alternate routes, and finally ended up in Miami Beach about 2 1/2 hours later.
Even though you don’t have to tip, I gave the driver $30 for his trouble. Still, he smiled and said, have a good evening. When I looked at my phone, after Uber drove away, the cost of the ride had accumulated to $348.00 after the varying costs were calculated. I thought, surely, this can’t be correct.
I sent in an inquiry to Uber. But there was no getting out of paying for the service.
My advice to you is to take a car service that will give you a quote before you ever get in the car for the entire ride when it comes to a big holiday. Uber may be the preferred service on normal driving days. But on holidays, think again!
