Here’s Why The Savviest Business Travelers Choose Uber

Business travel can be stressful. Whether you’re flying across the globe to close a multi-million dollar deal or traveling across town to pitch a new client, there are always variables involved in the logistics of simply getting there, before the meeting even begins.

Uber helps simplify trips, whether they be near or far, by eliminating the headache of getting from Point A to Point B. those details aside, you can focus more of your attention on where it should be: your business.

Here are just a few of the perks Uber provides.

1. Say Goodbye To Pesky Parking Garages

Where’s the nearest parking garage to my client? How early should I arrive to find a spot and make it upstairs for the meeting? Should I ask my client to validate my ticket? These are just a few of the questions that will become distant memories when you ride with Uber.

2. Eliminated The Lines

In many industries, every minute matters. Uber helps employees be even more productive by eliminating lines at rental counters, hotel valets, and other common car-collection locations. Simply request an Uber when you’re ready to depart, and relax as your driver approaches. Average wait times are less than five minutes in most cities.

3. Brush Up On Your Game Plan

The valuable minutes before an important presentation or meeting should be used for reviewing your presentation. Do you have slides? Mentally walk through what main point you’ll make on each. Are you delivering remarks? Review your opening and closing statements, and prepare answers to the questions you anticipate will be asked.

4. Stay Connected On The Go

Riding with Uber frees up your transportation time to be used for something other than driving. Whether you choose to catch up on emails or plug away at your to-do list—or something less work-related, like calling your significant other or taking a quick power nap—Uber adds valuable minutes to your trip that can be spent any way you choose.
