More than 5000 Uber cars in Pune and travelling is relatively cheap


Having your own personal driver is one of the great benefits when you work as an expat.  You’re always flexible and you can do more in a day; finding a parking space, finding the way, storing goods….it’s all done in someone else’s time. However, personal drivers only come with expat-assignments. So, what to do when you are here for travel purpose only and you want to experience the luxury of having a car and driver to accompany you? What could you do? Very quickly after our arrival in Pune we learnt about Uber, a service I use very often in the Netherlands. If you want to travel from A to B in this city you definitely need a car, as Pune is a very big city. And to do so, using Uber is very convenient. Just open the Uber app – once you activated this great service is works everywhere in the world – fill in where you want to go and press start. It will only take a few seconds. And now the big benefit: it is relatively cheap. An average ride in Pune will take up to 20-30 minutes and it will cost you not more than 100 INR, around 1,5 euro. With more than 5.000 Uber-cars in Pune (!), there is no fear of waiting very long.
