Things You Didn’t Know About Careem
FACT 1: They aren’t just in Dubai.
Although Careem started up in Dubai, you can now enjoy their services across 15 countries in the wider Middle East, so when you travel across the region, you can be sure of your favorite ridehailing app being ready at your service. From Saudi Arabia to Egypt, even to Morocco, Careem has you covered from the minute you land at the airport till you land back in Bahrain. So no need to rent a car!
FACT 2: Careem rewards you every time you ride
If you have an Air Miles or Shukran account, be sure to link it to your Careem profile so you can choose to earn reward points every time you take a trip. This benefit is offered across all cities Careem operates in, so you will earn points no matter where you are. They are also partnered with Etisalat, so if this is your mobile provider then link your account and you can choose to earn Smiles points instead. To learn how to link your accounts, open up the Careem app and go into “Rewards” under “Settings”. You will see partners there and your points as they rack up. You can also use your points on any of these partners to convert to Careem credit.
Careem cares about our region
FACT 3: Careem has a longstanding partnership with the United Nations
You can opt to take a UNHCR car when you ride in Dubai and a donation of AED 3 will automatically be added to your fare. During Ramadan, Careem matched these donations. You can feel reassured that the money goes directly to help refugees across the region. You can also opt to convert your Careem rewards points towards donations in which you will be able to feed a child for a day or a week, help a refugee with cooking gas or help a refugee with essentials.
