Fishfishme is Announcing a Partnership with Uber

OK, this is a pure promotional post, but I thought StartupQ8 community will be interested to know what’s going on here in Dubai. Today we are announcing a partnership with Uber (yes, Uber the on-demand black car service App, the company that just received around US$260M in funding from Google ventures). Amazing right! Yeah we are so excited too 🙂

The partnership is just for Dubai though, so now whenever someone books a fishing trip in Dubai, they will get a free pickup and drop service with a nice luxurious car (you’ll get 70AED for going to the boat and 70AED for getting back home or to the hotel).

Yes, this is me in the photo! and below is how it exactly works:

  1. Book a fishing trip in Dubai[1] with
  2. You’ll receive a promotional code to use for your Uber account[2] (two free rides up to 70 AED each in your Uber account)
  3. Download Uber App from the App storeor Google Play
  4. Register on Uber using the promotional code you received[3]
  5. Use the App to request a luxurious car (you’ll either get a Lexus, Mercedes, Audi or BMW) to take you to the boat (Click here to learn how to use the App – video by fisfishme team)

Majed AbukhaterGeneral Manager – Uber Dubai,  comment about the new partnership “Uber is happy to partner with fishfishme to provide our services. We love fishfishme and want to see it grow and succeed and we’re doing our best as Uber to make that happen. This partnership also  makes sense for us because we have done similar campaigns around the world and as a new entrant into Dubai this is a great way for users to learn about us and try us out.”
