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 on a staycation

A day on the beach or in the park

Gathering a group of friends or family for a fun-filled day at the beach or park is a great way to make some awesome memories. And with Uber, it’s easy to deal with the “how to get there” problems. The multiple destinations feature lets you pick everyone up en route without having to worry about who’s bringing the car.

If you live in Lagos, there are almost too many beaches to choose from: Elegushi Royal Beach is one of the more popular private beaches to hang out, but if you’re willing to make a quick boat ride from Victoria Island, you can enjoy the quieter Tarkwa Beach just off-shore.

In Abuja, heading to the park for a picnic with friends is a good way to go. Of course, Millenium Park is always an excellent choice, but Durumi Recreational Park in the south of the city is also one to check out, with plenty of wide open space for private gatherings and hanging out with friends.

Visiting another city        

Of course, when it comes to staycation ideas, visiting another city in your own country is one of the most popular. And you can get anywhere you want to go with easy public transport and travel connections using Uber. With city-wide access, you can easily grab an Uber from your door to Lagos Iddo and hop on a train to many of Nigeria’s greatest cities and locales. If you want to embark on an epic rail journey to other parts of the country from Abuja, Idu Station is your starting point.

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 head to the most popular attractions or trek around the city to discover some hidden gems. Whether you’re in Lagos or Abuja, you can use Uber’s easy pickup and efficient travel feature to help you zip around the city on your staycation.

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 kids on a trip to the cinema, it’s the perfect way to go.
