It all starts by making an account online or from your mobile phone after downloading the free Uber app. Once you have one, you can start Uber-ing around Madrid with ease. If you have Uber already before you come to Spain, then your Uber app will automatically update to the Spanish version once you arrive and set up your phone for Spain.
