Surge Defender helps you find and book an Uber ride at the lowest possible surcharge rate - at any location, any time, anywhere in the world!
How does it work? There are two ways.
1. Search simultaneously for surge pricing at 25 points around you. Choose the point with the lowest surge.
2. Surge pricing changes often, quicker than you may think. The app will refresh every 30 seconds, so you get the surge as soon as it drops, rather than once you've left and booked at a high surge rate.
Simply choose your location, how far you are willing to walk for the lowest surcharge, and the type of Uber ride you would like to take. Then with a single button click, the surcharge rate is locked in and the final booking confirmation is performed in the Uber app.
Why is this app a must have? The Uber app at peak periods may present a surcharge to entice drivers onto the roads. For example, a ride booked via the Uber app, with a surcharge of 1.7x, may cost you $30. Alternatively, using Surge Defender, you could discover that 20 meters from you, the surcharge is only 1.3x. If you took that rate, your trip would have only costed you $23. That's a saving of $7! The savings are even higher when Surge Defender finds you a surcharge of 1x.
So change the way you book your next ride. Don't overpay. Ride smart. Beat the surge!
