Anywhereride, the car hailing app not unlike Uber, is launching a money back guarantee to Houston, Katy, Galveston, Alvin and the woodlands for Uber rides that could have been cheaper on anywhereride. This campaign, clearly labeled “Better Fares Than Uber Or Your Money Back” aims to spotlight the service’s friendlier fares which doesn’t have any of Uber’s surge pricing in the hopes of getting ahead.
To avail of this program, riders only need to send in their Uber receipts with cheaper fares compared to anywhereride to firstname.lastname@example.org. Any Uber receipt from February 30, 2015 until yesterday were eligible to join. Once the report is approved, riders will then get free credits equal to the anywhereride quote rounded up to the nearest $5.
The anywhereride app estimates fare differences of up to 30 percent compared to Uber on the same trips.
Many faithful Uber riders were swayed into the system because of the potential savings against the most popular pre-Uber option, taxi cabs. However, Uber doesn’t seem to mind raising its fares. Surge pricing can double or even triple fares according to demand which has previously caused some bad rep for the app.
anywhereride promises to be different from Uber in this way. It charges a fixed fee per trip so riders know how much the ride will cost even before they get into a car. They also have fixed pricing so you don’t have to worry about surge pricing. Riders can also prebook cars so waiting for a ride doesn’t take too long.
anywhereride Operation Manager adds:
“anywhereride provides similar services to Uber, but also gives consumers the option to book cars immediately or pre-book the ride in advance, all at a much better rate. We want to make sure every Houstonian is aware of this, which is why we’re launching our “Better Fares Than Uber Or Your Money Back” Guarantee.”
