Here's your complete guide to requesting an Uber in Ghana.
Uber is a taxi service which brings you the best offers you can imagine. It caused quite a stir in Accra when it was launched.
Apart from providing good looking and well-maintained cars, the ability to rate your driver is one that is welcomed by many.
You get to request for it anywhere and anytime no matter your location. You can also communicate with your driver and watch your car arrive in real time.
Worried about safety? Uber thought of that too so they make sure that your friends and family can also follow your trip and their phone if you allow them.
This alerts them when you reach your destination. Also, details of your driver would be made available to your family and friends.
