We recently wrote about Uber Adding 3 New Features For Smooth Ride with one of the new features being a guaranteed pick up time. This is great if you have an early morning flight, and need to schedule a Uber ride you can now do so. Additionally, they’re offering a $10 ride credit if for some reason the driver isn’t there at your scheduled time.
Here’s what Uber has to say:
5am flight? Meeting with your boss? A first date worthy of a good impression? Schedule a ride up to 30 days in advance for the most important events in your calendar. Schedule at least 60 minutes in advance to lock in your price ahead of your trip so you can avoid surprises. When you schedule at least 30 minutes in advance, your driver will pick you up on time or you’ll receive a $10 credit.
Scheduled Rides pricing is similar to on-demand trip pricing and is based on duration, distance, traffic, and demand. When you schedule a ride at least 60 minutes in advance, your price will be locked in ahead of time. If you schedule less than 60 minutes in advance, you’ll receive a fare estimate will be notified via push notification if your fare has changed when your driver is assigned to you.
I love Uber, it is super convenient! If you still haven’t tried Uber yet, you can still get a credit towards your first ride with my referral link, here or your credit can be applied to your UberEats order instead!
