The Weekender

The holidays always add some extra hustle and bustle to the everyone’s schedule. We want to make sure that your holiday travel is seamless! Here are a few holiday pro tips to help you get around town like a true expert:


Share. Earn. Ride Free.

It’s the best time of year to be sharing with those that you love. Share your personal promo code with your family and friends while you’re with them this holiday season. The more you share, the more you earn. It’s a win-win situation!


  • Tell friends to sign up for Uber using your referral code
  • For every friend who signs up and rides, you each get 1 free ride worth up to $20
  • You’ll receive notification that your free ride is in your account—the more you share, the more you earn


  • Free rides valid anywhere in the USA
  • Good for all vehicle options
  • New users must sign up in the USA

Find Lost Items.

Even after you’ve double checked, you might have left one of your mittens or Great Aunt Edna’s famous pie in the back seat. No worries, it happens to the best of us. With Uber, you can easily recover your lost items. To find any items that may have gotten left behind, check the bottom of your email receipt for the “Click here if you lost something on this trip” link or visit for your driver’s contact info. You’ll be able to reach out directly to recover your item and avoid any lost item blues.


Fare splitting is fair splitting.

Your cousins, your parents, and even granny, might just be piling in an UberSUV with you this holiday season. When fare splitting your Uber ride within the app, the more the merrier! Pop open the app, select “Split Fare” and choose the people you’d like to split the ride with. They’ll receive a text message to either accept the fare split, or accept and sign up for Uber, if they haven’t yet!

Let them know you’re coming.

Before they start unwrapping all your gifts for you, let your family know that you’re on the way! Sharing your ETA with people is a great way to share how on-time (or not) you’re going to be. Simply open the app, select “Share my ETA” and choose the people you’d like to share with!
