With Uber no longer available in China, DiDi is the most popular choice for travelers looking for a ride from point a to b. Didi Chuxing, or DiDi for short, is actually quite simple to sign up for and use, especially since the company released an English version of their application, “DiDi – Greater China” a few months ago.

In this article we will walk you through how to sign up for DiDi and order a DiDi car.

2. Choose your level of service

DiDi has several options for levels of service to choose from. Click here to learn about each of DiDi’s service options.

Also notice that DiDi allows you to book your ride for “Now” or “Later”


3. Get your Fare Estimate

Once you have entered in your trip details, DiDi will give you an estimate, if all looks good click “Request”

Within a few minutes you will be connected to a driver. The app will let you view both the driver’s rating and how many rides they have given.


4. Contact your Driver

While you are waiting for your driver, if you need to communicate with him or her, you can send a text through the app. The DiDi app will translate your communication with the driver from English to Mandarin and vice versa.


5. Rate your Driver

At the end of your trip you have the option to rate your driver. Currently there is no tipping option within the DiDi app.
