To the app

Summer has always been closely linked with travel, and while you may have holidays you’ve been painstakingly planning for the better part of a year, there’s a lot to be said for packing a bag and going wherever the wind takes you. Read on as we list the various ways Uber can support your last-minute travel ideas and show you why this is the season to be impulsive.

Plenty of Room for the Picnic Basket

Whenever it’s sunny out, you can be forgiven for wanting to stay indoors where it’s cool. If you don’t catch it when it’s here, though you can bet you’ll be kicking yourself for not making the most of it when you had the chance.

Don’t let the good weather pass you by – the next time the sun’s shining, call some friends, book a trip via Uber, load a picnic basket in the back of the car, and get a ride to your favourite park. Impromptu trips to the beach, BBQs, and outdoor games are all possible and more easily attainable than ever by just seizing the day and booking a ride.

With Van, you can bring a bunch of friends and transport a fully equipped BBQ and unicorn airbed should you wish. It’s the go-to option when you want to enjoy fun times at the beach with the entire squad – just make sure to inform your driver about the party equipment beforehand!

Roaming Drivers

You are never far from a ride, because there’s always a driver online near you. Drivers operate in Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague and Utrecht, as well as Haarlem, ‘t Gooi and Scheveningen. This means that you can travel to your heart’s content with complete peace of mind.

Knowing that you don’t need to go on the hunt for a taxi rank or stay within the radius of a local cab company, because you can request a driver to come to anywhere in the service area, gives you the freedom to explore.

Even if you’re unfamiliar with your surroundings, you can still go out in search of adventure as you know you can always book a trip back home with Uber. Let your curiosity run free this summer and finally catch some of the sights you’ve always been meaning to see.

Avoid indecision

Booking with Uber means you can spend less time talking about where you want to go and more time actually being there. Arrange a ride as soon as you have a destination in mind and you’ll be en-route before you can even start thinking of alternatives!


On the other hand, Uber’s ability to add stops to your journey means you can make your decisions en-route. Being able to be spontaneous even in the middle of your last-minute trip means that you’re always open to a world of possibilities.
