Live the #LUXLIFE with an Exclusive Weekend Getaway Powered by UberLUX and Surf Air

**All spots for the #LUXLIFE Palm Springs getaway have been filled. Stay tuned for more experiences brought to you by UberLUX in the coming months!**

UberLUX is offering its riders special access to an exclusive weekend getaway in Palm Springs. To celebrate their desert launch, we teamed up with Surf Air to curate the ultimate #LUXLIFE experience for two, including roundtrip flights on a custom-designed executive aircraft, a two-night stay in a luxury hotel, and a fine dining experience at one of Palm Springs’ best new restaurants.

This once-in-a-lifetime, on-demand getaway is only available to riders of our premium vehicle options on Friday, November 6. Haven’t requested UberBLACK, UberSUV, or UberLUX in the last 6 months? Take a ride on any one of these options by Thursday, November 5 at 12:00pm, and you’ll automatically receive access to this special promotion in the Uber app.

The #LUXLIFE Experience Includes:

  • Roundtrip air transport for two powered by Surf Air.  You’ll fly out of comfortable private airports without waiting in line and board a custom-designed executive aircraft operated by Surf Air, the nation’s first members-only airline.
  • Premium Uber rides to and from both flights.  You’ll be whisked away in an UberLUX for your flight to Palm Springs and be picked up by an UberBLACK upon landing. You’ll also receive premium transportation for your return flight.
  • A two-night stay in a luxury bungalow.  You and your guest will live the #LUXLIFE in an intimate, luxurious L’Horizon Palm Springs bungalow with dramatic desert views.
  • An all-inclusive dinner.  You and your guest will receive $125 in food and beverage credit to Chi Chi, a new-school Latin American eatery at the iconic Avalon Hotel.


Pricing and Dates:

This carefully curated #LUXLIFE weekend getaway costs $1200, or only $600 per person when you split the fare with your guest.

The on-demand experience will be available in the app on Friday, November 6. Participants will depart Los Angeles at 2:30pm on Friday and depart Palm Springs on Sunday, November 8 at 4:00pm.



How to Request:

  1. Open your Uber app between 7:00am and 10:30am on Friday, November 6.
  2. Request the “PLANE” option in your app. This option will only be available in your app if you’ve taken a ride on UberBLACK, UberSUV, or UberLUX in the last 6 months. Availability is limited, and spots will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. If all spots are filled prior to 10:30am, the PLANE option will no longer be available in the app.
  3. If your request is fulfilled, you’ll receive a call from an Uber representative who will coordinate your pickup, flight, and hotel details. Please note that pickups will occur at 12:30pm, and you’ll be flying with other #LUXLIFE getaway package participants.*

Demand will be high, and availability is extremely limited. We’ll announce on this post if all spots have been reserved.
