What Is The Uber Fare Estimator Widget?

The Uber Fare Estimator widget is a simple and easy tool that you can use to get pricing and information on Uber rides all over the world.

It works for all different Uber types, cities and coverage areas. It also provides advanced data based on the locations the user enters, including their pickup and dropoff points, and includes shareable links and details for those trips.

Here are the features our tool provides users:

1. Uber Ride Fare Estimator

The first section of our Uber price estimator widget is the “Estimator” section.

Here, it allows users to get real-time Uber fare estimates from any page the widget is embedded in.

This can be pretty handy for users to find out how far new Uber user promo code will go, or to help them budget for a work trip, or any circumstance where real-time accurate Uber pricing can help.

For example, let’s say I visit Chicago and want to get an Uber trip fare estimate from Willis Tower to the Navy Pier.

I’d enter the widget, set my pickup location of Willis Tower as the starting point, then set my dropoff location of Navy Pier as the destination.

The widget would then generate a simple and easy to understand estimate which has all the data I’d need such as:

  • Ride Fare estimate
  • Car types available
  • Pickup time
  • Route Time
  • And lots, lots more.

2. City-based Prices for Uber

The next tab on the widget has a feature called “City-Based Pricing”, a new feature. Here, you can find current Uber types and get the following pricing information for any city you search:

  • Base Fare
  • Minimum Fare
  • Per Minute Fare
  • Per Mile Fare

Allowing you to estimate the trip fare for any city you’re in. We’ve heard that users often use this to compare taxi vs Uber rates.

Simply enter the desired city and then view the results that pop up. If a city has multiple Uber car options, you can cycle through them by clicking the green arrow to the right of the car.

What does Uber cost in different cities?

We think it is pretty fun to use this tool to look around the world and see how Uber fare prices vary from city to city, depending where you live. There are a lot of different factors that go into the price structure, and they widely vary throughout the entire world.

We’ve used the widget for pricing research many times before, and it is hands down out favorite use for this. So, if you’re curious, here are cheapest and most expensive cities for Uber, according to uberestimator.com.

Cheapest Uber Cities

Here are the cities around the globe that have the cheapest Uber prices. Many of these cities fall into countries where economies are still developing and there’s a large need to move people to and from wherever they happen to be going. These cities likely have a lot of drivers available, bringing the prices down substantially from other cities where drivers are in high demand.

Uber Estimate Tips & Tricks

Looking to make the most out of our Uber fare calculator? We built this tool with you in mind. Take a look at a few tips and tricks to make getting Uber estimates easier than ever.

1. Share your route

Did you know that our Uber Fare Estimator widget stores the route you generate so you can come back to it at a later time, or share it with your friends?

While the widget displays all the basic information, you can get a full breakdown of the ride, complete with map and in-depth details, by clicking on the URL the is generated within the details page of the widget. You can access this page any time, which is a fun way to share ride details with friends going to the same event or place as you.

We have found this to be an incredibly popular feature during concerts and music festivals, as well as corporate events such as sales meetings and conferences.

2. Auto-populating destinations

Our auto-populating feature of our estimator helps you out if you don’t know an address, or even exactly what you’re looking for when you search for an estimate. We tied our widget into Google Maps to make searches easier and more efficient. This gives you unprecedented access to Google’s immense database, making populating starting and ending points easy. Search for an exact address, or simply by name. Wherever you are trying to go, we’ve got you covered.

Ours vs Competitors

If you’ve ever tried looking up Uber fare pricing information, you’ve likely come across some of our competitors. I’m not going to name any names, but do a quick search and you will see a myriad of competitors with similar widgets and functions similar to ours. But don’t be fooled, there are quite a few differences that sets our estimator apart.

First, we tried to make out widget all inclusive. This makes getting estimates, city-specific Uber pricing, and viewing popular destinations and fare quotes very simple and intuitive. While you may have to spend a bit looking around their sites for all of these different links and resources, we incorporated them all into one single widget.

Second, we make it easy to embed our widget into any page. By providing simple and easy to use HTML code, the process of embedding our estimator widget into your site takes only minutes, and anybody can do it. In addition, we are here to help through the entire process, which is something that many of our competitors cannot claim.

Third, our data is as accurate as we can possible get. We’ve seen many other fare estimators pop up recently, but many are not simple or even accurate for that matter. Our widget ties directly into the Uber API, whereas many others just input their own data and just let the estimator sit idle. We update our widget and tools as much as possible, meaning you will have access to the latest and most current data, no matter what.

Uber Fare Estimator Widget Updates

We are proud to introduce updates to our app as we add them. We recently upgraded our widget, and as of June 2017, users are now enjoying expanded features and a better-looking and designed widget. As a part of our most recent update, we included the functionality for users to no longer have to embed a new code every time we make updates. Now the widget will be updated within the background, and site owners can set it and forget it.

Our latest round of updates include:

  1. Design
    1. Rebranded the widget for a custom logo
    2. Made the width responsive, set at 100% of pixel ratio
    3. Introduced new color scheme for entire widget
    4. Reworded text to be easier to understand and more user-friendly
  2. Functionality
    1. Added live SURGE map to every city and quote
    2. Reworked Popular tab to include more accurate data
    3. Updated backend to make widget more reactive and responsive
    4. Added social sharing functions for sharing with friends

In short, this latest round of updates completely overhauled our entire widget, and we are very happy with the result. We hope that because of our updated design and functionality, users will find the widget easier to use, understand, and share. If you have any questions, or notice any bugs, feel free to get a hold of us and let us know!

Now It’s Your Turn

There may be a chance the Uber Fare Estimator isn’t for you. After all, we recognize not everyone are Uber fare geeks like we are at Ridester. We also acknowledge that not many people need or want to know the price of Uber fares ahead of time, or want to play around and see what Uber trips cost around the world.

But, if you or your readers are Uber geeks, or regularly plan Uber trips ahead of time, for example if you’re an event organiser, then you should go ahead and check the tool out. Compared to the competition it’s dead drop simple, intuitive to use, and it’s easy to share your data with others. We’ve also made it as easy as possible to embed on your website.

What are you waiting for? Go ahead and start playing around with it. If you need any help embedding the widget on your site, we’re more than happy to help. Shoot us an email, and we’ll walk you through the process so you can get up and running.
