Uber in the UK: A Ride For Every Moment

To the app

If you’re reading this, we imagine you’ve already taken a ride with Uber in the UK. From super sized rides to premium cars, we’ve put together a brief guide to help you get to know the different rides available on Uber around the country a bit better.


It’s a ride that needs no introduction: our flagship service, UberX, offers easy everyday rides at everyday rates, transporting riders in cities across the UK. Whether you’re coming home from work or heading out with friends, UberX is the go-to option for a quick, affordable ride across town. Cars available on UberX are typically comfortable Toyota Corollas and seat up to four passengers – enough space for co-workers, friends or family.


There’s travelling and then there’s travelling in style. Lux journeys definitely fall into the second category. With high-end cars, Uber’s premium experience is perfect for those occasions when you want to make an entrance or when you’ve got someone to impress. There’s even space for up to four riders in an Lux, so you can share the ride.


When you’re in charge of getting everyone organized for a big trip, the last thing you want is for the ride to arrive without enough space for everyone’s luggage. That’s where supersized UberXL comes in: with a minimum of 6 seats and extra space in the boot, UberXL is a quality, low-cost option for big groups to travel together with ease. The more the merrier!


We’re making the UK’s cities more accessible with UberASSIST and UberACCESS, our specialised services for senior riders and riders with access needs. With UberACCESS, your driver-partner will be specifically trained to assist riders when getting into a ride, and can accommodate folding wheelchairs, walkers and service animals. When you need assistance getting, we’re here to help.


One of the best parts about using the Uber app is splitting the cost of a ride with friends. If you’re riding alone, UberPool lets you match with other riders headed in your direction so you can share the fare every time. Once you’ve been paired with a rider, the app will direct you to a nearby pick-up point that’s mutually convenient – same goes for the destination. UberPool is perfect for riders who are always looking for a deal or love to ride with others.

So, next time you’re requesting a ride, take a moment to weigh up your options—whether you’re looking for a ride that’s quick, affordable or stylish, there’s a car available on Uber in the UK to suit your needs.
