How to subscribe to the Uber Pass?

Users can subscribe to Uber Pass through the platform’s own app for Android and iOS. To carry out the process, just follow the following steps:

  • Then, select the “Uber Pass” option;
  • Check the value and benefits of the program;

What are the differences from Uber Rewards?

It is common for people to confuse Uber Pass and Uber Rewards. While the first is a monthly subscription model, the second is a free loyalty program offered by the platform.

With Rewards, the person earns 1 point for every R $ 1 spent on Uber Eats or on trips with UberX or Uber Together. In the Uber Black and Uber Select modes, the number of points rises to 2 for every R $ 1.

The program has four categories: Blue, Gold, Platinum and Diamond. When leveling up, users gain advantages such as the availability of the best rated drivers and low prices on the dynamic fare.

If the person signs up for both programs, the benefits are complementary and are converted into more advantages. For example, using Uber Eats with free delivery will generate points that can be redeemed for discount coupons.

Uber Pass worth it?

The subscription is recommended for people who use Uber services quite frequently, whether for trips or delivery to restaurants and markets. Therefore, the savings generated through discounts make up for the amount paid monthly.

Combined with the benefits of Uber Rewards, the subscription becomes a very useful service package for everyday life. For this reason, it is important for people to assess whether they fit this user profile before registering for the program.
