Are you interested in booking an Uber for someone else but not sure how to do it? Don’t worry, it’s a lot easier than you might think. In this guide, we’ll walk you through the process step-by-step so you can confidently book an Uber for your friends or family members.
First, open the Uber app and tap on the ‘Where to?’ button at the top of the screen. Then, simply switch the Rider by clicking on the ‘For Me’ option and in the drop-down menu, tap on the option that says ‘Choose Who’s Riding’ over here. This will allow you to access your contact list.
You can either choose your friend’s phone number from your contact list or enter it manually. A new window will appear where you have to accept the terms and conditions. Then fill in your friend’s first and last name and tap ‘Continue’. The Uber app will now have your friend’s phone number and full name, which the Uber driver will also be able to see. Therefore, make sure you enter everything correctly.
Next, enter the location where the Uber driver should pick up your friend and choose where they should be dropped off. You will also be able to select between UberX, which is a cheaper option for cars that seat four or more people, or an UberXL if your friend needs a larger vehicle such as a minivan or SUV.
Finally, tap on the ‘Confirm UberX or XL’ option to complete the process. You or your friend or family member will then receive a link to a real-time Uber tracker so they can monitor the vehicle’s exact location while they wait.
And that’s it! With these easy steps, you’ll be able to book an Uber for someone else without any trouble. Make sure to double-check all the details before confirming the booking to avoid any mishaps. Happy Uber-ing!
