You requested the ride anyways, only to find out that the ride was on SURGE the whole time, and now your bank account has $150 less than it did before. What if there was a way to avoid this? Good news; there is.

Choose our widget over competitors

When looking for an Uber pricing estimator widget, choose us over our competitors. While accuracy is limited to the open Uber API, there are a number of other advantages to using our Uber pricing widget over our competitors’.

First, our tool is very easy to use, and incredibly user-friendly. Unlike some other pricing widgets, our Uber Ride Fare Estimator is simple, intuitive, and straightfoward.

Third, in our opinion, our widget looks very minimalistic and is a great complement to almost any webpage that it gets embedded in. Rather than use a clunky, poorly designed widget that will stick out of your site like a sore thumb, embedding our widget on your site will complement your site design, no matter how simple or intricate. We designed it this way on purpose, so that it wouldn’t be overpowering and could be inserted into almost any site and still look great.

Uber Fare Estimator FAQ

Who else in the industry uses your Uber Fare Estimator tool?
What is the difference between your estimator and competitors?

As we touched on earlier in this post, the difference between our tool and other ones flooding the market at the moment is quite drastic. Our tool looks nice, is easy to use, and is incredibly easy to embed within your site if you’re looking to provide ride estimates yourself. We’ve done the hard work, so embedding this is as easy as copying and pasting a few lines of code. That’s it!

Do you have ride fare estimators for Lyft, Postmates, Sidecar, or Shipt?

Unfortunately at the moment, we don’t have ride fare estimators for any other companies, just Uber. We are working on a few others, but it is pretty hard to get access to their APIs, as they lock their data down pretty well. While we don’t have fare estimators for these companies, we do have some resources that will help you save money with them.

This should hold you over for the time being. We are working with a few other companies in the industry right now to provide fare estimates but those are budding projects in the works. For the time being, simply enjoy the Uber fare estimator that we have provided!

What types of Uber cars are available to passengers?

There are 6 different types of Uber rides currently available to most cities: uberX, uberXL, uberBlack, uberTaxi, uberSUV, and uberLUX.

  • uberTaxi: Riders can request an uberTaxi as a budget option. uberTaxi costs the least of all the options, and is a standard cab with seating up to 4 riders.
  • uberX: UberX is a normal, everyday car that is driven by random drivers in the Uber community. These types of cars are usually nothing special, and normall simple cars like Honda Accords or Toyota Camrys. This is the cheapest and most-used type of Uber ride
  • uberXL: Next comes uberXL, which is a larger version of uberX. These SUVs can fit up to 7 people, but cost a little more than a normal uberX, simply since they cost more to run. Good examples include Chevy Suburbans or other larger SUVs
  • uberBLACK: An uberBlack is a nicer version of uberX. An uberBlack is usually a high-end luxury sedan like a Mercedes-Benz or Lexus. These rides are significantly higher than an uberX, but usually at his point you really don’t care. It is luxury at an affordable cost
  • uberSUV: Riders with larger groups tend to favor an uberSUV if they want to arrive in style. This type of ride costs a little more than an uberXL, but comes with the luxury you would expect when riding in a hired limo. Suit and tie driver, “yes sir” “no sir”, etc.. A slice of luxury at the touch of a button
