Making spring break travel more effortlessWritten by
Spring break is right around the corner, which means one thing: travel season has begun. And this year, experts predict spring break will be busier than we’ve seen in years – with the TSA anticipating pre-pandemic travel volume at airports.
Our goal at Uber is to help you go anywhere effortlessly, which is why we’re thrilled to announce a series of new products aimed at making your airport experience smoother than ever.
Here’s what’s new:
Expanded Availability of Uber Reserve
Tap a button, plan your ride! When you book flights and hotels for upcoming trips, you can reserve your Uber rides at the same time, and know that all parts of your journey are set. Starting today, we’re beginning to roll out a feature that lets you use Uber Reserve to book rides up to 90 days in advance, and you’ll see the upfront price, and receive details about your driver in advance of the trip. Plus, we’ve expanded availability for Uber Reserve across most of the US and Canada so you can reserve the ride that best fits your budget, luggage and group size.
Directions to Pickup
Whether at your home airport or a new one, navigating your way through a busy terminal can be overwhelming. That’s why we’re adding step-by-step, in-app directions to guide you from the gate to the Uber pickup area. Our new wayfinding feature offers specific directions at more than 30 airports* across the globe and we’ll expand further in the coming months.
We all know what it’s like when you’re waiting to deplane, wondering when to request an Uber ride and feeling unsure how long it will take to get to the pick up location. Say goodbye to that stress and hello to our new feature that will help you more accurately plan how long it will take to get from gate to baggage claim, soon available in more than 400 airports around the world.
Soon Uber for Business will be rolling out Business Comfort in select cities, an exclusive ride option for those traveling for work with a unique business-class experience.
We’re even helping you save time when you grab food, coffee and more at the airport. With Uber Eats at select airports, you can place your order for pickup right in the app and skip the line when it’s ready. Starting today Uber Eats at airports is now live at Tampa International in addition to Charlotte Douglas International, Columbus International and Toronto Pearson airports.
