To the app

When it comes to holiday ideas, a staycation is often right up there as one of the best. Whether you’re exploring your home city outside the daily routine, or spending a day out at the park, or even just inviting your friends over to have a holiday at home, a staycation can be a great way to enjoy some time off.

However you’d like to spend it, using Uber is a great way to help you organise stress-free and convenient transport for all your staycation ideas. Here are just a few ways you can use the Uber app to have a fabulous holiday at home.

Using Uber for a staycation

Bask on the beach

If you live in Accra or the surroundings, a day at the beach with friends and family is a great way to make some awesome memories. Use Uber’s multiple destinations feature to pick up all your friends en route to the beach. You can head to the all-time favorite Labadi Beach for some activities or just grab some beach towels to chill on Kokrobite or Sakumono beach. If you feel like escaping the crowds, you can walk along the beachfront all the way across to James Town. And wherever and whenever you decide to call it a day, we’ll be ready to take everyone home again.

Picnic in the park

What better way to spend a staycation than with a picnic in the park? Kumasi is renowned for its picturesque natural beauty. Between the KNUST Botanical Garden, the National Zoological Gardens and many more, Ghana’s Garden City offers plenty of opportunities to escape into nature with family and friends. There are also a number of other Kumasi day trips you can take using the Uber app.

Visiting another city     

Of course, when it comes to staycation ideas, visiting another city in your own country is one of the most popular. However you’re getting there, Uber availability makes getting around the country’s major cities easier than ever before. If you’re in Accra, it’s simply to grab a ride to one of the city’s bus stations and then head in-land to Kumasi – and we’ll be there at the other end to help you explore the city to your heart’s content.

Exploring your own turf

If you’re having a holiday in your home city, you can leave the car at home and use Uber to explore your surroundings. You can pretend you’re a tourist and use Uber to explore the most popular attractions or trek around the city to discover some hidden gems. Whether you’re in Accra or Kumasi, you can use Uber’s easy pickup and efficient travel feature to help you zip around the city on your staycation. 

Gathering of friends

Arguably one of the best ways to spend a memorable staycation is with a cheerful get-together for a barbecue. Invite your relatives and friends over for a meal, or perhaps even host a block party – it’s up to you. And with Uber’s 24/7 availability, you can continue to make memories until the morning hours. However late the party goes, Uber will be available take anyone home afterward. It’s a simple matter of hitting the app, order a ride and off you go.   

Taking the kids out 

Having a holiday at home means that the kids will sometimes be involved in activities of their own, like heading off to camps or their grandparents. Whether they’re accompanying you on your staycation or not, you can ferry them around with ease using the Uber Family Profile. You can enter up to five people on the Family Profile who can then travel using your account. If Grandpa wants to take the kid on a trip to the cinema, it’s the perfect way to go.

Using Uber for a staycation

Whether you stay in your own city or visit a nearby one, the goal of any staycation idea is the same as that of a vacation – to take a break from your everyday life, to relax, and to create memories with your friends and family. Make Uber your holiday partner, and you’re only a few rides away from an unforgettable staycation.
