Uber is giving its corporate travellers a ‘business class upgrade’ with the local launch of Uber Business Comfort in major Australian and New Zealand cities.
Now available as an exclusive service for organisations registered under Uber for Business, the perks include newer vehicles with more legroom and experienced high-rated drivers, who will also wait up to ten minutes for you to reach their vehicle.
Uber says its Business Comfort drivers will need to have made at least 500 trips, hold a consistent rating of 4.85 or above, and have a suitable vehicle that’s less than seven years old.
These are the same eligibility requirements as for Uber Comfort, meaning existing Uber Comfort drivers will automatically be entitled to Business Comfort trips.
There’s also access to dedicated Priority pick-up locations at Melbourne airport – another way to beat the queue and be on your way – plus access to ‘premium business support’ directly from the Uber app.
Uber Business Comfort is now available in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, the Gold Coast, Perth, Canberra and Adelaide; and across the pond in Auckland, Christchurch and Wellington.
