What is Uber Travel?
Uber Travel is a feature of the Uber app for riders that allows you to connect your Gmail account to import relevant flight and hotel details to automatically create a travel itinerary that puts all your trip information into a single view. Your individual bookings are organized and grouped into trips.
With this mobile itinerary, you can easily reserve rides to and from the airport, your hotel, or wherever you’re traveling with a few simple taps all at the same time and in one place in the app.
Reserving in advance helps take the guesswork out of your travels. You can reserve a ride up to 30 days ahead of your trip with your price presented up front as usual. Plus, you'll earn 10% back in Uber Cash on each Reserve ride you book through Uber Travel.
And when you reserve a ride from the airport, our flight-tracking feature will automatically adjust your pickup reservation time if the airline cancels or delays your flight.
Why use Uber Travel?
You’ll get a single view of all flight and hotel reservations from your email—no more digging around for trip details and stressing about what’s next.
You’ll receive upfront pricing and 10% back in Uber Cash on each Reserve ride you book—no more surprises when you’ve got important plans.
Because you reserved your ride in advance of your travels, your car will be waiting and ready when you are—no more waiting around at the curb.
How Uber Travel works
If Uber Travel is available in your city, you can find it in your Uber app and connect your Gmail account to get started.
When you complete a travel-related booking (hotel and flight at launch, but other bookings like home rentals and restaurants coming soon) and have the receipt sent to your registered email address, Uber will automatically create an itinerary within Uber Travel for you.
Once your itinerary is populated, you’ll receive a notification to review your upcoming trip.
While looking at your itinerary, you’ll have the option to schedule Reserve trips to and from various destinations on that itinerary.
When your travel plans change, Uber Travel will automatically update your itinerary based on booking updates sent to your email.
You may remove Uber’s access to your Gmail account at any time via Google’s settings. If you want to remove access, please follow these steps.
Uber only imports travel-related bookings
Uber has partnered with AwardWallet to import travel-related emails only. AwardWallet’s email-parsing API identifies travel-related emails by looking for specific data points associated with travel booking confirmations, such as airline names, airport codes, departure and arrival dates, and more. Only those emails that meet flight, hotel, car rental, and other travel-specific confirmation parameters are flagged for import to Uber. Uber does not have access to any other non-travel-related emails.
Uber only receives updates when your Gmail account receives updates about changes to your travel itinerary. You are responsible for getting to your flights and hotels on time and for other changes to your schedule that may not be reflected in real time in Uber Travel.
