Is Uber available in Phnom Penh? The answer is YES!
Just like Paris and Penang, you can now use your smartphone app to get a taxi from your hotel to the Phnom Penh airport. Starting yesterday, Uber started its test drive to allow anyone in Phnom Penh to order a taxi from its app. Why Uber is so widespread around cities all over the world is because of reasonable price and 24/7. With services like Uber and Exnet Taxi, they will change the way you get around Phnom Penh with ease. A taximeter is always a good option not to get ripped off. Getting a Tuk Tuk is cheaper, but it’s better to negotiate the price before your start going to the destination.
Another easy way to get a Tuk Tuk around Phnom Penh is using Pass App. Pass App has received positive review for being reliably fast after your order through its app as well as reasonable price. You can also pay in cash directly (including tip) to the driver.
Uber is taking Cambodia’s Phnom Penh by storm
New to Uber?
It is a ridesharing app for fast, reliable rides in minutes—day or night. There’s no need to park or wait for a taxi or bus. With Uber in Phnom Penh, you just tap to request a ride, and it’s easy to pay with credit or cash. This is not actually the first service available in the Cambodian city. Exnet Taxi app has been around for quite some time to serve Phnom Penh residents with its own service and app.
Typically, these apps perform the following functions:
- use your location so your driver knows where to pick you up.
- you’ll see your driver’s picture, vehicle details, and can track their arrival on the map.
- You can pay your taxi driver with your credit card or cash, and PayPal.
Just like Airbnb, you can rate your driver (or your host in the case of Airbnb) and provide feedback to help us improve the riding experience.
