Dubai-based Emirates NBD today announced a tie-up with transportation app Uber, offering its cardholders free rides during the holy month of Ramadan.

Additionally, new users registering on Uber’s app with their Emirates NBD debit or credit cards will receive two extra free rides that will be valid across Ramadan.”
