Why you should take Uber instead of Cab in U.S?

Saving some transportation $ while traveling in the states.

I’m writing this because the cab fare in U.S is really cutting out my travel budget, so after discovering that Uber is rather cheaper in the state, I feels like writing a post to explain this even though in Malaysia we have already know the fare difference between this two, but in U.S, there’s a really BIG GAP between the fare!

Why you should take Uber instead of Cab?

My first experience of taking cab is from the hotel I stayed in Las Vegas, Planet Hollywood Hotel to Las Vegas South Premium Outlet. We took a cab from the hotel lobby and it cost about $25-30 including tips.

After ONE day shopping from 9am to 6pm in the premium outlet, one of my friend decided to called for Uber, and I was kinda shocked by the fare difference between Uber and Cab.


For the same distance from Planet Hollywood to South Premium Outlet, $23.32 is the fare quoted from Taxi Fare Finder, and this is of course NOT INCLUDING TIPS.

For the same distance from Planet Hollywood to South Premium Outlet, calling an Uber X is ONLY $9-12, can you see how much fare difference between cab and Uber?

AND Most importantly, you don’t have to TIP Uber drivers!

So be smart while planning a trip to U.S! Always get your Uber ready!


To use Uber, you have to activate the app by using your phone number, so please bare in mind you may have to apply for international roaming.
