At the start of the pandemic Uber gave away 200,000 free trips and 100,000 meals to NHS staff serving on the frontline during the Covid-19 pandemic. They have just launced Uber Medics which offers subsidised rides to all NHS staff and UK Care Home Staff.
This time Uber Medics have announced that they will be offering 25% off rides for all NHS and UK care home staff, or 50% off when you pay with Mastercard. This is their way of supporting NHS and care home staff as you continue working to support the country through new Covid-19 restrictions.
What is Uber Medics?
Uber Medics is a ride option designed exclusively for NHS & care home staff as you continue working through the Covid-19 pandemic. They are offering the following:
- 25% cheaper rides compared to regular Uber fares for NHS and UK care home staff (capped at £30 saving per ride)
- More flexibility on waiting time, to ensure staff can get to their pick-up point
- Uber drivers receive their normal fee and Uber does not make a profit from Uber Medics rides
- Available all day, everyday until at least the end of 2020
Mastercard is now further subsidising Uber Medics. Pay for your Uber
Medics ride with your Mastercard and you’ll automatically receive 50%
off, instead of 25%, (capped at £30 saving per ride) which you’ll see
discounted before your ride.
