With the holiday season fast approaching, travel is usually inevitable for many South Africans, whether it’s going to a party, heading home to see family or jetting off for a quick vacation, Uber can help make getting there and back stress free.
Avoid parking problems: Let’s face it, parking is usually expensive and it can be a struggle to find a parking spot, especially at busy holiday spots, and if you flying, the last thing you want to do after a long flight is to drive back home. Instead, request a ride so you have one less thing to worry about. We also have dedicated Uber pick-up and drop-off points at the main airports which you can check ahead of time and choose the one closest to where you need to be.
Schedule your ride in advance: Anxious about missing your flight or fetching your mom at the airport? You can schedule a ride up to 30 days in advance, so you can rest assured that all parts of the journey are sorted before you’ve even packed. Flight delays won’t throw off your plans either – you can reschedule a trip up to 15 minutes before its scheduled to start.
Budget, budget, budget: The same way you know the price when booking a flight or hotel, know how much your ride will cost before you hit the road with Uber’s upfront fares. And just like flights and hotel fees increase during holiday periods due to demand, dynamic pricing happens when demand for rides is high and there are not enough drivers on the road - you will be notified from the moment you open the app and it will be included in the upfront fares.
Dynamic pricing encourages more drivers to get out on the road to serve you on the busiest night of the year. If you weigh up the convenience of getting an Uber, there really is no better investment.
