Uber launches Uber Travel in MENA with its latest travel feature, Smart Itineraries. The feature is now available in Egypt and Saudi Arabia for the first time in the MENA region.
This feature allows riders to link their profiles with their Google account by clicking on ‘Travel’ in the app, the feature then displays upcoming travel plans and allows users to reserve an Uber to and from locations based on hotel and flight bookings. The company will also return 10% cashback every time riders reserve a ride with Uber Travel.
Smart Itineraries is part of the company’s Travel Suite of Offerings globally, with a range of features expected to launch in the region soon.
“Uber Travel forms an integral part of Uber’s vision to make movement and local and international travel more seamless. We’re excited to introduce Smart Itineraries to the MENA region, as an enhanced offering to help ease the stress of travel, and we will continue to expand our services to accommodate increasing travel needs through the power of our technology,” Norhen Ali, Uber’s Head of Communications for MENA, said.
Last year, the company also launched a B2B service named “Uber Bus For Business” in Egypt to offer companies with tailored transport programs for the daily commute of their employees and staff
