Catch an Uber ride to and from the airport

April 30, 2019 / Kenya

Everyone gets excited about heading on a  journey – often to the point that they forget the first step of getting to the airport. It’s easy to overlook this important aspect in the crazy run-up to a long-awaited trip, resulting in major last-minute stress. Using Uber at airports however makes travel connections super easy, whether you’re riding to the airport or looking for a pickup to take you home:

Uber rides to the airport

Ever-present availability

Uber is available 24 hours a day at over 300 airports on five continents. So, it almost doesn’t matter where your flight is heading or when your flight departs: you should have no worries about finding a ride at whatever time or wherever you land. Simply head to the app to find a driver ready to get you to your hotel or back home.

Schedule a ride ahead of time

With so many things to tick off your to-do list before embarking on a journey, why not schedule your airport ride in advance? That way you’ll have peace of mind and can focus on the thousand and one other arrangements.

Of course, that goes the other way as well. There’s no need to stumble around looking for a ride or rental cars when arriving at your destination. Arrange an Uber ride ahead of your arrival for a smooth exit.

Trouble-free pickup and dropoff

With Uber, you also get dedicated pickup and dropoff zones at most airports. Now you don’t have to fret and scramble around when getting out of the airport – the app will show you where these zones are so you can find them easily. They’re also helpful when you’re heading in, as the map will show you where you’ve been dropped off in relation to the airport entrance.
