Up Hail’s new service Discover gives you an estimate on how far you can travel in a cab with the amount of money you have. The website asks you to tell it your budget or the amount of money you have, then tell the website the location you are at currently. The website will show you all the taxi or cab services available in that area. You can choose a service and you will be shown an estimate of the area you can travel to in that much amount. The service is in beta version right now.
When you start the website for the first time you will see an interface like the one shown in the screenshot below.

Now select the service you prefer from the given. Once you have done that, click on the discover button at the bottom.
