The merits of business travel are clear, but making sure travel managers have control and employees can travel stress-free is a balancing act. Uber for Business is an all-in-one tool specifically designed to do both and keep everything running smoothly.
With this platform, travel professionals can customize their program, slash administrative time, and increase visibility. For traveling employees, Uber for Business provides the mobility experience and Uber magic they already know, just elevated for business.

Benefits for travel managers
Transparency and visibility
With its central dashboard, Uber for Business provides unparalleled control and customization. Program administrators can set rules for ride type and spending thresholds, manage flexible billing, monitor employee activity, and easily add or remove members.
Cost controls and compliance enforcement
The platform doesn’t just make travel workflows easier. Spending parameters and visibility into all employee activity help teams stay within budget, improve forecasting, and help enforce travel and expense policies. Plus, there’s no service fee to get started with Uber for Business, and companies only pay for completed trips or food ordered.
Uber for Business integrates with a variety of top expense providers to help streamline tasks and increase efficiency. Travel managers can easily onboard new team members, provide custom expense codes, and reconcile receipts. Our travel integrations also help simplify planning and logistics, from booking to duty of care.
We’re a partner with companies big and small on the road to net-zero carbon emissions. With Uber for Business, platform users gain access to a sustainability metrics dashboard. This gives them powerful data to more accurately report on the environmental impact of their teams’ ground transportation. Specifically, they can view and track company-wide estimated CO2 emissions, total no- or low-emission trips, and average CO2 per mile.
Benefits for business travelers
People who travel for work deserve a first-class journey, no matter how often they’re on the road. Your travelers are already familiar with the Uber app’s ride and meal delivery experience from personal use. Uber for Business is tailored for work and provides something extra. Learn below what some of the business benefits are.
Exclusive ride option
Uber Business Comfort is an elevated option available only to travelers using a managed business profile. Riders enjoy the features—like newer cars, extra legroom, priority pickup1, top-rated drivers, and premium support—for a relaxing and productive trip.
Business hub allows employees who are linked to their company Uber for Business accounts to see all their sponsored Uber travel benefits in the Uber and Uber Eats apps. They can view workplace programs, like business travel or meals, manage their profiles, change payment methods, or contact Support.
Meals while traveling
Sometimes, room service or eating out just doesn't cut it. Meal program options through Uber Eats allows travelers to order food wherever they are, like their hotel room or a conference. And with over 890,000 merchant partners on the Uber Eats platform globally, they’re bound to find exactly what they’re craving.Reserving ahead
Being late simply isn’t an option when on the road for work. With Uber Reserve travelers can request a ride up to 90 days in advance. They can also choose from a variety of ride options, get up to 15 minutes of wait time, and cancel up to one hour before the ride at no charge.2
Uber for Business expense integrations streamline the expense process for employees and program administrators. Traveler ride or meal receipts will automatically flow directly into the company’s expense provider dashboard, saving time and helping to eliminate human error.
Uber for Business allows traveling employees to make business trips work for them. By connecting their Uber and Marriott BonvoyTM accounts they can earn points redeemable for personal travel when they request eligible rides and order eligible meals on the road. In addition, American Express Corporate Card Members can earn Uber Cash on eligible business rides and meals.
Eco-friendly ride and meal options
Uber for Business can help travelers lessen the carbon footprint of their work trips, helping them put their companies’ sustainability policies into practice. Where available, they can ride in no- or low-emission vehicles using ride options like Uber Green and Uber Comfort Electric. And if they’re eating with colleagues on the road, group ordering through Uber Eats can reduce the amount of emission-producing trips required for delivery.
