    Hi. I'm new to using an Uber. I just downloaded the app and got a code for £10 off. I have an interview tomorrow in London and will need an Uber to take me from the coach station to the university. My questions are:

    1. Can I only use ONE code per ride?
    2. Does anyone know approximately how much it will cost (22 minute ride)
    3. When I get in will they ask me for anything to verify its me?
    4. Does it take my money straight from my account/card?

    thank you. Any help is widely appreciated.

    I use Uber a lot. As far as I know:

    1. Yes
    2. Depends a lot on traffic, you can get a rough fare estimate from the app when you get to the coach station
    3. They usually just ask for your name to confirm. The app will tell you the driver's name and registration number of their vehicle.
    4. Yes, you get a receipt about 5 minutes after you get out of the car.

    Best of luck with your interview!

    1. I think so
    2. It should show you an approximate fare when you type in your pick up and destination
    3. No, the driver might just ask if it's you (name), like"you're John, right?"
    4. Yes
