Now companies can pick up the tab on your next Uber ride.

Looking for a new way to attract or reward customers? Uber might have the answer.

In a move that made us think, “Why didn’t we think of that?”, rideshare service, Uber, has launched Uber Vouchers, a new way for any company to easily cover the cost of transportation for their customers.

The concept was originally tested with over 100 businesses in late 2018 and starting today, any business can sign up online to enhance the travel experience for their customers.

Companies like Autoguru.com.au, a car mechanics booking site and leading hotel brand, QT Hotels and Resorts have already started using Uber Vouchers along with other Aussie retailers and restaurants.

Autoguru.com.au has been using the service to get customers to and from service locations and QT Hotels and Resorts is helping guests explore a new destination whether they’re a local or international visitor.

The global reach of Uber’s brand and the familiarity of the ride-share service means easy access when we’re presented with an Uber Voucher and we’re looking forward to seeing the creative ways businesses will start to use it.

Eden Shirley, CEO and founder of Autoguru, says: “Uber Vouchers offers us an innovative way to provide convenience for our customers. Getting to and from the mechanic can be a hassle for some people, and being able to solve this problem with an easily redeemable Uber voucher was a natural solution for us.”

We might see Uber Voucher pop up from companies that already offer transportation such as shuttle services or rental cars. Other businesses can use the vouchers to ease parking woes in areas where parking is scarce and even for getting to and from events when drinks might be involved.

If you’re interested in Uber Vouchers for your business, you can sign-up by creating an Uber for Business account and enabling the Vouchers portal.
