Uber to Launch These New Services in Saudi

Uber announced on Wednesday that users in Saudi Arabia will soon be able to book rides up to 30 days in advance and reserve cars for an hour or more at a time.

The app launched the Uber Reserve function, allowing customers to give up to 30 days’ notice of ride reservations.

Aimed primarily at those arriving at airports, and as part of the booking, users can insert their flight details so drivers know if the flight has been delayed or what time the passenger is scheduled to arrive at their destination.

“We’re making the reservations experience even more affordable by expanding Reserve to UberX in hundreds of US cities and towns, and in more places nationwide this summer". Uber said in a press statement

“And as travel returns, we’re launching Reserve in cities like Paris and London, as well as 20-plus of the country’s busiest airports later this year … including Saudi Arabia,” the company said on its website. It added.

Hourly Service

“Today Hourly on Uber Black (and Premier) is available in more than 1,000 US cities and towns. And we’re bringing Hourly to UberX and to thousands of new cities across the US, Europe, Latin America, Australia, India, and Saudi Arabia late this summer,” a statement on the Uber website said.

Through Hourly function users can book a car by the hour if they have multiple stops or trips throughout the day and want to keep the same car and driver on standby.

The service will soon be available in international markets, including Saudi Arabia, no exact timeframe was given.
