Uber-Smooth Traveling: A Local’s Guide of Uber in Adelaide

My hometown of Adelaide is a very picturesque city whose landmarks can conveniently be reached within just 20 minutes of each other! 

Speaking of convenience, one app that makes it so easy to go around in the city is Uber. Since its launch in 2014, it has helped locals and tourists alike in traveling through the sunny sights of Adelaide. 

Here, I’ll guide you through the ins and outs of Uber, from where you should book, how much it charges, and more.

  • UberX – The most affordable option usually featuring average car models
  • Comfort – Mid-size cars
  • UberXL – Cars that can accommodate up to 6 people
