Abu Dhabi, UAEFriday 16 November 2018

You can ride in a Rolls-Royce for free this Halloween (if you are super speedy)

The offer is open to Uber riders in Dubai who select the Ghost option between 6pm and midnight on October 31

On October 31, your Uber app will feature an UberGhost option between 6pm and midnight. And if one is available at the time you're selecting it, you can get a free ride in a Rolls-Royce Ghost.

That said, it will be hard to get a ride (if the popularity of Uber's free donuts, which 'booked out' very quickly last May) is anything to go by. The Halloween promotion features approximately eight cars from the Rolls-Royce stable. Assuming that the average rider is 20 minutes away from his or her destination, that works out to about 144 possible rides over the six-hour window. Which means that you have to be super-quick to book the option at 6pm itself, or super-lucky to get one later in the evening. That it's a weekday might help your chances some.

Either way, whether or not you get to ride in a Rolls, every Uber car will be stocked with a free bag of candy, from Candylicious.

The promotion is valid across Dubai.
