Stress-free travel with the Uber app this festive season

December 5, 2018 / Kenya

During the festive season, travel is usually inevitable – however far – but that doesn’t mean the stress has to be. Whether you’re heading home to see family or jetting off for a quick vacation, Uber can help your make your travel plans smooth and stress free.

Parking problems

Forget the car and ride to Johannesburg airport using the Uber app. Let’s face it, no one wants to leave their car at the airport – parking is usually expensive and the last thing you want to do after a long flight is drive home. Instead, request a ride so you can relax on the way to the airport or home with one less thing to worry about.

Schedule your ride in advance

Anxious about missing your flight? If it’s available in your area, you can schedule a ride up to 30 days in advance, so you can rest assured that all parts of the journey are sorted before you’ve even packed. Flight delays won’t throw off your plans either – you can reschedule a trip up to 15 minutes before it’s scheduled to start.

Pick-up and drop-off points

Realising you’ve parked near the wrong gate and having to sprint across the airport to catch your flight is the exact opposite of a relaxing start to your vacation. Make it easy for yourself with one of the dedicated Uber pick-up and drop-off points around Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. You can check ahead of time and choose the one closest to where you need to be. The same goes with your return flight; follow the instructions in the app to arrange for your ride to meet you at the nearest pick-up point so you don’t have to drag your suitcases around.

No matter where you’re headed or what you’re celebrating, we’re here to make sure your travel plans are a bit smoother and less stressful. Have a wonderful festival season and enjoy the ride.
