Anyone that’s gone out on New Year’s Eve knows how much trouble it can be to get a cab. Uber users also know that prices can surge up to seven times the normal rate during the busiest times.

To appease its more price-conscious users, the ridesharing company has shared tips on how to avoid price-surged fees so that they can continue enjoying the New Year without breaking the bank.

The company wrote:

“On New Year’s Eve, everyone is looking for rides at exactly the same times. We expect the highest demand—and fares—between 12:30 and 2:30 AM. For the most affordable rides, request right when the ball drops at midnight or wait until later for prices to return to normal.”


Our staff would like to remind everyone to party responsibly tonight! Don’t drink and drive!
