Uber Offers Free Trips to Cairo Int'l Convention Centre's Vaccine Site

Uber is giving out free trips to and from Cairo’s largest COVID-19 inoculation site, the Cairo International Convention Centre, until August 5th.

If you’re scheduled to get your vaccination appointment at Cairo International Convention Centre, heads up - Uber is offering passengers free trips to and from the vaccination site.

Covering a maximum cost of EGP 100 per trip, the free-trip offer to Cairo’s largest COVID-19 inoculation site will be valid until August 5th.

Users will be able to claim the voucher by clicking on the link from Uber via text message or email. Once you accept the coupon, it’ll appear automatically in users’ ‘wallet’ on the app.

The COVID-19 pandemic hit the ride-hailing company hard, which has seen its revenue fall from USD 13 billion in 2019 to USD 11.1 billion in 2020 due to the lower number of trips, which fell from 7 billion to 5 billion over the same period.

Uber’s new drive to intensify the country’s inoculation campaign comes after it launched other local initiatives to combat the spread of COVID-19, such as by offering free and discounted trips for healthcare workers.
