Uber user left furious after driver heads wrong way from airport and triples fare

A man has been left infuriated after taking an Uber ride from Birmingham Airport to his home in Sutton Coldfield, via Coventry - which is in the opposite direction. 

The Uber user, known on Twitter as @Georgeg147, took to social media to share his experience with the ride-sharing firm - calling them "Disgusting scumbags". 

The journey, which would normally cost about £25, ended up a whopping £75.

George was inundated with replies on his Twitter account, with one user - known as little jimmy - writing "apparently it's the future", followed by two laughing emojis.

Big Chris wrote: "Keep learning the hard way.” 

Uber Support also sent George a tweet, which read: "We're sorry to hear this was your experience, @georgeg147. Kindly send us a DM of the phone number connected to your account, so we can further assist.”
