The Uber Way to Travel

By Hope Imaka – EMTV Online

Uber Technologies Inc. is an American international transportation network company. The company develops, markets and operates the Uber mobile app, which allows consumers with smartphones to submit a trip request which is then routed to Uber drivers who use their own cars.

Up until quite recently, Uber had been all about booking cars; but not anymore. On December 24 2015, Uber has secured a new patent that could be used to plan trips.

The functionality of the app would be to book flights, hotel rooms, and information on luggage collection, all with the availability of Uber cars within the area. A traveller using the application could handle all their travel logistics in just a single click of a button.

In essence, Uber is extinguishing any guesswork when travelling, luggage pick-up, or car pick-up, by sending users a notification on when they should do so, even throwing in suggestions of the nearest airport, and potential lodging that are nearest to airports.

To date, Uber has already partnered with Hilton, and is found to be more popular than taxis among business travellers.
