If you haven’t already noticed I’m a bit of a PRINCESS when it comes to public transport and my blog is littered with cost saving hacks to make cab rides as cheap as possible :-). My latest cab blog is about the free ride offer currently active at the new kid on the block . . . . Ola Cabs.

I’ve been working in Birmingham these last few months and Ola, one of the world’s largest ride-hailing platforms, has launched in the UK (and more specifically in Birmingham for me) ​and  gives passengers a new and convenient way to hail a black cab or private hire vehicle. Think of it as the new Uber with more competitive pricing 🙂

​Ola launched in Bristol in mid 2018 and has steadily begun increasing the areas it provides it’s services. Currently it operates ride-hailing services in five regions that cover several of the UK’s bigger cities: South Wales (Cardiff, Newport and Vale of Glamorgan), the South West (Bath, Bristol, Exeter, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire), Merseyside (Knowsley, Liverpool, Sefton, St Helens and The Wirral), West Midlands (Birmingham, Dudley, Sandwell, Solihull, Walsall and Wolverhampton, Coventry & Warwickshire) and Reading and will soon to be launching in London.

I hadn’t heard of Ola until I saw the cabs driving around Birmingham – so downloaded the app to see how I got on. The first thing I noticed was that most of the drivers who  picked me up were actually Uber drivers as well so you can expect pretty much the same driver/passenger experience.

UK Ola Cab Referral Code: 0VKG7FU

But what’s actually great about Ola service is the prices. You can see I have highlighted a referral code above. Use this when joining and before making your first booking and you will get your 1st ride free (upto £10) and your next 5 rides at half price (upto £5 off each) . What’s more I have found that over the past few weeks I have received notifications through the Ola app offering me discounts of between 25 – 40 % on a regular basis. So you can bet the service is cheaper than Uber!

Oh and Ola is the only app that can be used by both black cabs and Private Hire Vehicles (PHVs), giving you a greater choice when you fly or get a train into a public transfort hub

In India, Ola is the dominant ride-hailing service provider. In addition to the U.K. other markets where it operates outside of its home country are Australia (where it has services in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth, Canberra and the Gold Coast) and New Zealand (Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch). More countries will be launching soon!

I dont want new Ola drivers to miss out – so below you will find a driver app referral code to use which gives you a bonus on your first few driver bookings. The coupon code to use is : 0VKG7FU

Frequently Asked Questions:

Surprisingly from all my blog posts this one has been one of my most popular. But I’ve been asked a number of questions on email over and over again – so I thought I would add the answers below. Just remember I’m just a gal who takes a few too many Ola cabs – I’m no a cab expert 😉

      Hi
      Ola seem to change the offer every now and then. It seems to switch between £5 and £10 off (mostly £10)
      The ola website CURRENTLY says referred customers get £10 off which is therefore incorrect 🙁

      Sorry – I have no other way of knowing the latest referral value. I use the details shown directly at Ola UK to update the blog.

      Back to £10 for sure now !
      Enjoy your free credits 🙂

      Hi there. I didn’t get anything, it just said the person who’s code I used would get a tenner.

      Any idea?

    4. Haley X - Site Author February 29, 2020 at 2:38 pm

      Hi Joshua
      Not sure – The app clearly states the following when you click on the refer and earn menu option.
      “For your friend to receive their coupon, ensure that they use referral code before their first ride & within 10 days of signup”
      The offer has always been the person referred gets a free £10 ride . . . . So not sure why you didn’t receive your free £10 ride.
      I will update the blog – but it seems a bit random on who gets the voucher and who doesn’t. . .

  2. Haley X - Site Author February 10, 2020 at 11:01 am

    Latest offer is one ride FREE (upto £10) and 5 coupons worth £5 each to use on your next 5 rides – Enjoy!
