Top questions about SEA car service

  • Wait times depend on demand in the area, traffic conditions, the type of ride you request, and other factors. We recommend searching for a ride in the Uber app or on Uber’s website to see estimated pickup times. To best reduce waiting, you can use Uber Reserve to schedule a ride and match with a driver in advance.

  • We recommend getting to the airport 3 hours early for international travel. You can reserve a ride ahead of time to help reduce wait times and even save your airline trip to your Uber account to take the guesswork out of scheduling airport dropoff and pickup.

  • Yes. With Uber Reserve, you can schedule a dropoff and pickup up to 90 days in advance.

  • The grace period for you to meet your driver depends on the ride option you choose. For UberX, Uber Comfort, and UberXL, you can avoid wait time fees by meeting your driver within 2 minutes of their arrival. For Uber Black, Uber Black SUV, Uber Premier, and Uber Premier SUV, you will have 5 minutes to get to the vehicle. You will be assessed per-minute wait time fees beyond that. Riders with a disability can request a wait time fee waiver. Get more information here.

    If you’re unfamiliar with the layout of the airport or where the rideshare pickup point is, we recommend requesting a ride when you’re closer to exiting the arrivals gate.

    With Uber Reserve, your driver will wait up to 45-60 minutes after your flight’s estimated arrival time, depending on the ride option (45 minutes for UberX, Uber Comfort, and UberXL; 60 minutes for Uber Black, Uber Black SUV, Uber Premier, and Uber Premier SUV). In most cases, this should be enough time to get to the rideshare pickup point.

  • The luggage capacity varies by Uber ride type. For example, an UberX ride can usually hold 2 suitcases while an UberXL ride can usually hold 3 suitcases.**

  • The availability of ride options will vary by time of day, region, and airport guidelines. The best way to get an accurate list is by searching for a ride in the Uber app.

  • All drivers using the Uber app get background checks, and their vehicles undergo inspection. In addition, drivers and their vehicles must adhere to city and airport-specific airport operating procedures and regulatory guidelines. If you have any safety concerns, please visit our safety page.

  • By law, small children are required to be in a car seat. Get more information about our safety policies.

  • Service animals are allowed, and Uber app drivers may not refuse a trip because of the presence of one. For pets, however, it’s recommended that you select Uber Pet when choosing your ride option. Otherwise, it is up to the discretion of the driver; once a driver is assigned, you can message them in the app to make sure. Get more information on animal-related policies.
