Introducing Uber Comfort

September 7 / Egypt

Uber Comfort, a new high-end product with numerous customization options is now available in Cairo. To make the trip more pleasant, you can now choose the preferred temperature inside the car and whether you prefer to chat with the driver or want to have a quiet ride. With the minimum fare starting at EGP 17, riders will be matched with more experienced, top-rated driver-partners who have newer, mid-sized cars.

What features does Uber Comfort offer to riders?

With Comfort, riders get more experienced and highly rated drivers (with a rating of 4.85 and above) with newer-model vehicles that offer more legroom. Additionally, the option allows riders to choose their ride preferences before they start the trip:

  • Temperature preferences – based on 3 different presets, riders may select a preferred temperature inside the car
  • Conversation preferences – riders can now specify in advance whether they prefer to chat or not, directly from the app
  • Extra paid wait time – We’re giving riders a little extra time to get to the car when unexpected delays pop up, with up to 10 minutes of additional wait time (initial 2 minutes are free of charge, a per minute  fare will be charged afterwards).

Who can use Comfort?

Uber Comfort has been designed for all riders who want additional comfort en route at an attractive price. Uber Comfort offers a chance to stay productive while on trip to work, wind down and relax while leaving work, or simply to enjoy a little extra comfort in your everyday trips.
