An Uber pro has found the ultimate hack for avoiding price surges on the taxi app, and it could save you so much money.

Using LAX airport as an example, Nikhil (@nikhilslife), managed to get a ride to the same location down to $8.93 from $39, just by moving his pin slightly up the street.

Airports reportedly have surcharges for taxis, which could be why the price is higher. It's a great hack if you don't have too much luggage and don't mind walking a few minutes.

Others confirmed it works worldwide.
