Use Uber on summer nights out for a safer ride home

July 23, 2019 / Netherlands

To the app

It appears that summer is in full swing, and the temperatures are rising steadily. That means everyone is enjoying the outdoors, chilling on terraces and rooftops and heading out to town on warm evenings. After enjoying a summer night out, you naturally want to get home quickly, safely and comfortably to dive into your bed after a great time. With Uber, you can be sure of a safer, more comfortable ride home at the end of the night.

24-hour availability

You know what it’s like when it’s getting late: you keep checking your watch because you really need to catch the last bus or otherwise you’re not sure how you’ll get home. With the Uber app, drivers decide when they want to drive, so there will always be a ride available for you 24 hours a day. That means no need to worry about timings or hurried ‘I have to go now – and with time no longer a concern, you can enjoy the night until as late as you like.

Wait comfortably for your ride

You can request and wait for your ride while chilling on a terrace with your friends. Once you’ve requested a ride, you can use the Uber app to keep an eye on your driver’s journey to the pick-up location. So as soon as they’re rounding corner, you can say your goodbyes and head out to meet them. You don’t have to wait out on the street on your own – you can relax with your friends right until you have to go. You’ll also be notified when your driver is nearing the pickup and when they actually arrive.

Tip: After requesting your ride, you can check your driver’s profile to see the name and photo of your driver as well as information about their car, such as the make, model and license plate. Always check this information before you board, so you know for sure that you are getting into the right car.

Let us know where you are

Once your ride arrives and you’re on the road, you can keep your friends in the loop on your ride home. When you share your trip status with friends, they’ll be able to see your journey in real time to where you are. So even if you’ve split up, everyone can check to make sure you’ve gotten home safely. All you have to do is sit back, relax and enjoy your ride home.

Leave something behind?

So, you’ve finally made it home after a fun night and a relaxing ride home, only to realize you’ve left your wallet, keys or phone in the ride. Not to worry, it happens to everyone. You can contact your driver through the app to alert them of the lost item within 48 hours or you can contact our team through the app or website to help as well.

Taking a ride home should always be a pleasant experience. Whether it’s in the middle of the day or at 3am after a long night, we’re always here to make your trip home safer and stress-free.

Enjoy the summer!
