Attention all cab-takers and taxi-lovers! Rejoice as UberX becomes cheaper with its Summer Price Promotion. This is particularly useful for those who book their taxis and pay the S$2.30 to S$8 booking fee. Also, you will not need to pay location surcharges with UberX. With all that being said, you should always use the Fare Estimator within the Uber app to get a rough idea on how much will you be required to pay.
