In response to rising demand, Uber is expanding across dozens of dazzling vacation destinations in Greece, Italy, France, Spain and Croatia as we gear up for a 250% increase in visits from U.S. travelers to Europe this summer.
We know riders rely on us to kick off new adventures – in fact, more than 15% of all global Uber rides take place to and from airports. Over the summer season, the airports that increase most in popularity are JTR (Santorini, Greece), DBV (Dubrovnik, Croatia), CTA (Catania, Italy), FAO (Algarve, Portugal), NCE (Nice, France), and VLC (Valencia, Spain). And when it comes to the top itineraries, Uber data tells us that Americans tend to enjoy Italy and France together in one trip, stop in Portugal before Spain, and fancy the United Kingdom on the way to Greece or Croatia.
From planning and booking to exploring and enjoying, Uber can take the stress out of each part of your trip. You can get organized ahead of time with Uber Travel, available in more than 10,000 cities. The helpful booking integration will pull flight details from reservations found in your email into one consolidated itinerary, suggesting rides to and from the airport, train station, etc. With Uber Reserve, available in more than 50 countries, you can book rides 30 minutes – 90 days in advance, locking in an upfront price and allowing our flight-tracking technology to ensure there is a car waiting when you arrive. And of course, our on-demand offerings make it easy to explore and enjoy new cities, spontaneously.

We’re thrilled to announce Taxi in Athens and expand Comfort, Van and Taxi options through the gorgeous Greek isles, including Mykonos, Santorini, Rhodes and Corfu.

Uber will be back in Italy’s newest hotspots, Sicily and Sardinia, as well as available in Malta. Travelers can use the Uber app to book Uber Black rides as well as Taxis. With Taxi, you’ll see an upfront fare estimation in the app, along with car model and driver details, while with Black you’ll see upfront pricing from the premium service operated by professional drivers in luxurious cars. With Uber Black, you can reserve a ride 90 days in advance.
We’re thrilled to be launching in two of Spain’s most popular tourist destinations, Mallorca and Tenerife for the first time. Beginning in June, locals and tourists alike will be able to request Uber Comfort, Uber Reserve and Uber Van in Mallorca and Uber Black in Tenerife. We will also integrate Taxi services into the app in both of these locations over the coming weeks.
We’re back in our seasonal summer pop-ups all along the French Atlantic coast, from Basque cities Biarritz and Saint-Jean-de-Luz to La Baule and Le Touquet south of Brittany. We’ll also have Uber Berline, our most premium product, in Bordeaux, making it easier than ever to visit vineyards in style. And we’re excited to welcome you back to the Côte d’Azur, making your travels as comfortable and seamless as possible with both Reserve and Comfort.
