Uber, the on-demand luxury taxi service which can be booked using an app on your mobile device, is now also available in Milan

The service offered by Uber , an international start-up launched in San Francisco and now also available in Milan, allows you to book a chauffeur-driven car (like a BMW, Mercedes, Audi or even a limousine) thanks to an app that can be downloaded on your mobile device at little less than the cost of a taxi.

By downloading the app free-of-charge from the Apple Store or from Google Play you can use your smartphone to check the location of the nearest car, book it and contact the driver whose face and telephone number will appear on your screen. Prior to confirming the request, you can ask for a quote which will be debited directly from the app and charged to your credit card. An invoice stating the amount will then be sent to you via email.

The service costs just a little more than a taxi, but less than hiring a car with driver. Furthermore, you can book a classy ride, even a limousine, at an affordable rate.

Founded in the US in 2009, Uber is already operative throughout major American cities and, in Europe, in Paris, London and now also Milan. However, the company is  looking to expand into other cities including, for example Rome.
