Uber and Hilton Team Up For Seamless Travel
We all have destinations — whether as road warriors, global adventure-seekers or those just planning a weekend away. No matter what kind of traveler you are, we are excited that our new partnership with Hilton provides one more easy way to connect with your destinations.
Starting today, you can set Uber ‘Ride Reminders’ through your Hilton reservation emails from your smartphone or online in advance of your stay. With ‘Ride Reminders, you will get an automated notification on the day of travel to seamlessly request an Uber ride to your hotel.
Beginning later this month, Hilton and Uber will also bring top restaurants and nightlife spots from 20 cities across the U.S. right to Hilton HHonors members via the Hilton HHonors app. A ‘Local Scene’ feature – curated from the top destinations Uber riders in that city visit most – will help HHonors members discover top destinations easily and then seamlessly request an Uber to check them out. More information can be found here.
By partnering with Uber, a leading innovator, we’re helping travelers explore destinations like they’re locals. This is the first time any company has leveraged Uber riders’ most frequented destinations to provide local recommendations. We’re excited to offer these unique benefits for our loyal guests.

Simplify your stay with the Uber ‘Ride Reminder’ — For the first time, you can set automated Ride Reminders and quickly book rides to your Hilton hotel with a single tap.
HOW IT WORKS
- Open your Hilton booking confirmation or pre-arrival email, click the ‘Ride Reminder’ button, enter your phone number and sign-up.
- When it’s time to leave for your hotel, Uber will send you a push notification or text. Simply swipe the notification to jump to the Uber app with the destination already set, and confirm your request.
- Say goodbye to long taxi lines – the hotel’s address is automatically set in the Uber app, so guests can easily be on their way.
- Additionally, all Hilton HHonors members who sign up for Uber will receive $20 off their first ride!
This collaboration – a first in the hospitality industry – uses a mobile-first approach by bringing you Ride Reminders and the “concierge service” of your fellow Uber riders, so that you can make the most of every trip, every time.
We’re excited to expand the Uber for Business platform beyond business travel, to include a world-class customer transportation solution, Uber Central. With Uber Central, organizations of all shapes and sizes can now easily provide on-demand, door-to-door transportation for their customers, clients, and guests.
A little over a year ago, we set out to put a new spin on an old classic–make reliable food delivery available at the tap of a button. Back then, we started by offering food in the UberEATS app from 1,000 pioneering restaurant partners in four cities. And today, more than 40,000 restaurants globally–from poke shops to pasta spots–are sharing food with customers through UberEATS. With a growing restaurant community comes more choices and more complexity. So we’re cooking up features to continue to make UberEATS easy and reliable. Here is a taste–
This flu season, we’re delivering free flu-fighting care packages across the country. When you receive a pack, you’ll have the option to request a free flu shot from a registered nurse–for up to 5 people.
