When to download Lyft?

When would you say is the best time to download the Lyft app - now while we're still in the UK or when we get there? We head in just under 3 weeks and aren't hiring a car this time.

I know lots of people get initial signing-up offers with discounts off the first 10 rides etc but are these time constrained? So for example, if I was to download now, would I get a discount but only applicable if used in the next couple of weeks?

Would be grateful for some insight from those in the know - thanks!

Download here before you go and link to your credit card. Im sure our offers were time constrained but cant remember for how long - maybe a week? Id do it maybe three days beforehand. We love Lyft and have used it in Orlando and Vegas many times with no issue.

Sounds like a plan - thank you!

I'm planning on downloading both Uber and Lyft the day before we go. If there's any refer a friend offers available I'll refer my dad and download onto his phone.

Hopefully between the 2 we'll have discounts on lots of rides over the fortnight.

We used Lyft for the first time recently. Downloaded it whilst we were there, I dont think it really matters though, unless there are time limited offers in which case better to wait until you need it, i.e. when there.
