Zain Group partners with Uber to offer its customers discounted and preferential services when using the Uber platform. The agreement will see Uber choosing Zain as its mobile launch partner and its main mobile service provider in Bahrain, Jordan and Saudi Arabia. This will allow Uber’s partner drivers to benefit from exclusive phone and data deals offered by Zain. Uber is also planning to start preferential services for Zain customers in Kuwait.  

Both companies are also set to collaborate on the enablement of mobile payments for Uber services as well as the provision of Wi-Fi in vehicles for Zain customers in the future. Additionally, Zain and Uber will co-operate on unique marketing and promotional offerings to local passengers, and to Zain customers travelling abroad who will benefit from discounted services provided by Uber, dependent on location and distance. 

Scott Gegenheimer, Zain Group CEO
This ground-breaking partnership with Uber is notable on two fronts; one in that Uber chose Zain to fulfill its telecommunications needs across the region and the other in that it reinforces our quest to continue delivering value to our customers through convenient and innovative digital solutions that enrich their lives.

Jambu Palaniappan, Regional General Manager, Middle East & Africa at Uber
In today’s highly digital world, both customers and drivers need to feel confident in the technology they use, and our partnership with Zain is about going that extra mile to ensure our service is always-on.
