Uber are subsidising rides for NHS and care home staff until the end of 2020.
Uber gets us from A to B, UberEats provides us with the perfect hangover meals and now Uber Medics is offering discounted rides to those working on the front lines through the Covid-19 pandemic! From this week up until the end of the year, NHS and care home workers across the UK will be eligible for 25% off fares all day, everyday. Alongside the discount, there’ll be more flexibility on pick-ups giving riders more time to get to their Uber before the driver cancels.

This is Uber’s “way of supporting NHS and care home staff as they continue working to keep the country moving through new restrictions and a second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic.” These workers have worked tirelessly to keep us all safe this year and hopefully this heartwarming gesture will make a difference.
And there’s more: Mastercard has now also partnered with Uber Medics meaning that an ever larger discount is available. If you pay for you ride with your Mastercard you’ll automatically receive 50% off instead of 25%! The discount will be capped at £30 savings per ride and there’s really no catch.
How to claim
If you work in a care home, simply ask your administrator to fill out this form and Uber will take care of the rest!
