We’ve written about Uber several times and it’s my go to app for when it comes to on-demand car service because of the reliable service and the amount of drivers there are. However, one thing that I’ve noticed a lot lately is an increase in surge pricing.
Surge pricing occurs during peak periods when there are more ride requests than drivers, however I absolutely hate paying surge pricing. Thankfully, there is a new app that I discovered that helps you avoid paying Uber Surge pricing called Surge Protector.
This is a great app, which will show you where Surge Pricing is, sometimes that means walking just a few blocks over and you can avoid it all together.
Have you used Surge Protector before or do you have any other ways/apps that you avoid Uber Surge pricing? Feel free to comment below.
