Kiwis will be able to get free Uber rides this winter, and it's all thanks to a new business partnership.

Westpac NZ and Uber have teamed up offering the freebie for new and existing Westpac personal Mastercard holders.

Every third Uber trip - up to the value of $30 - can be free for Westpac personal Mastercard debit and credit card customers from June 27 to November 30. 

Uber NZ senior operations manager Amanda Gilmore said the businesses' mission is to offer Kiwis an affordable and reliable way home.

"It's great to partner with such a respected and innovative company as Westpac and offer Kiwis the chance to experience more of their cities with Uber."

Westpac chief product officer Shane Howell said it was a delight to offer this opportunity.

"Whether it's dinner out with friends, watching a game or getting home on a cold evening. It's a convenient and practical way for us to help our customers go a little further this winter."

Uber is currently offered in seven cities in New Zealand: Auckland, Hamilton, Tauranga, Wellington, Christchurch, Dunedin and Queenstown.
