Uber has expanded its in-app options to allow bookings for airport trips up to 30 days in advance.
Uber Reserve, used to schedule a ride to the airport a month in advance, was launched late last year in the US. More recently, however, the app expanded its offering to a few airports in South Africa, France and Italy.
Aside from 39 US airports, app users can also schedule rides to Cape Town International Airport, OR Tambo International Airport, and Lanseria International Airport.
Users will be able to see all upcoming reservations in their app menu by going to the Reservations tab. Once an Uber Black driver has been assigned to the trip, the fare is then locked and will not change.
The driver will also arrive 15 minutes before the pick-up time that has been scheduled. Users can then choose to start the trip earlier, at the selected pick-up time, or up to 15 minutes after the chosen time.
If a user cancels a Reserve trip less than one hour before pick up, they will be responsible for the full trip fare.
The app also offers scheduled rides to Italian airports – Bologna Guglielmo Marconi Airport, Milan Linate Airport, Malpensa Airport, Giovan Battista Pastine International Airport, and Fiumicino Leonardo da Vinci Airport.
Uber Reserve trips to Nice Côte d’Azur Airport and Paris-Charles de Gaulle are now open in France.
