UBER AT CANNES FILM FESTIVAL ACT 2
La Croisette will be celebrating the greatest artists of the silver screen from around the world from May 14th to May 24th.
Following our remarkable success at The Cannes Festival last summer, Uber is back to have you ride in style for a second year. From the airport to the red carpet and onto the private parties, you can rely on Uber to take you wherever you need to be. This year Uber goes the extra mile to :
Your app will no longer be to request a simple car ride, you’ll now be able to use the Uber app to request an UberJET and have the privilege to fly away to and from Cannes.
From May 12th to May 18th, Uber is partnering up with GOODWILL Private Jets to allow you to request a private jet ride from your app. Once you have completed your request, a black car will come and pick you up and drive your to your private plane at the Bourget airport. Fly away to the Nice airport, where you will be picked up by a private driver that will carry you to your final destination.

We have developed a new pilot program – Xchange Leasing – which is a leasing option administered by an Uber subsidiary and designed to fit with the flexibility that drivers value most. The Xchange lease is one of a kind, and offers value that traditional auto leases do not provide. Unlike most multi-year leases that have high fees for early termination, drivers who participate in Xchange for at least 30 days will be able to return the car with only two weeks notice, and limited additional costs. The program allows for unlimited mileage and the option to lease a used car, with routine maintenance also included.
A new report conducted in partnership with Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) reveals that when empowered with more transportation options like Uber, people are making better choices that save lives.
New technologies are creating opportunities no one could have imagined. To understand Uber’s place in that trend, we commissioned a survey of our driver-partners and put together a comprehensive analysis.
