Dubai: UAE consumers will not only save money when visiting theme parks and other attractions in Dubai, they will also enjoy discounts on their taxi fare.

Uber and Dubai Tourism announced on Wednesday a joint campaign that promises to help residents and tourists enjoy their summer in the emirate without breaking the bank.

For nearly one month, from June 14 to July 12, those who purchase a Dubai Pass, an all-inclusive pre-paid card that allows discounted access to 33 of Dubai’s attractions and parks, including Burj Khalifa, Legoland, Ski Dubai and Dubai Parks & Resorts, will get an additional 15 per cent discount on six Uber rides to and from the city’s hotspots.

On top of that, Dubai Pass buyers will enjoy a 15 per cent discount off the normal price of the card.

The Dubai Pass serves as a cash-free passport that users can purchase in advance in order to gain access to more than 30 attractions in Dubai at up to a discount of 60 per cent.

With the Dubai Pass, residents spend less on entry tickets. It also makes it more convenient for them to enjoy everything in Dubai,  from the Burj Khalifa to Wild Wadi Waterpark without having to pay an entrance fee each time.

An unlimited Dubai Pass, valid for three days, costs Dh899 for adults and Dh846 for children and it provides access to all the attractions. A ‘select’ tier pass costs Dh399 for adults and Dh389 for children. It is valid for seven days and applies to select destinations.

When card holders visit some of the attractions, they will enjoy discounted Uber fares.

Pass holders can avail themselves of the discounted Uber fares when travelling to and from the following destinations:
