As the weather gets warmer and more Americans are getting vaccinated, it’s understandable that some people can’t help but have travel plans on their minds. Uber is stepping up with new features to make the transition back to travel as smooth as possible.
With many parts of the US in the middle of a rental car shortage, Uber is promoting Uber Rent, which allows Uber users to rent a car right from their phone. The new and improved feature is a partnership with major rental car companies like Avis, Hertz, and “dozens more,” according to a press release. Uber is also adding a valet service that lets you sign up to have the rental car delivered right to your doorstep, so you don’t have to go through the hassle of picking it up from the lot. The program will roll out in DC in May and will be available nationwide “soon after.”
