Uber: A step closer to multimodality with its new maritime offering…

With the arrival of summer and the influx of tourists to European shores, Uber is once again setting itself apart by unveiling a new range of services… The American giant is stepping up the multimodal game with a sea transport service designed to turn summer holidays into unforgettable experiences. From Ibiza to Venice, via the Greek islands and Paris, discover the luxurious new transport options offered by Uber in its app…

Uber Yacht: The new Ibiza experience

After taking the Ibiza party scene by storm last year, Uber is taking things to the next level with the launch of Uber Yacht. Scheduled for launch in August, this new service will allow visitors to book a private yacht for a day’s cruise around the island, directly from the Uber app.

From 26 July, travellers will be able to pre-book their trip for a unique experience aboard a luxury Sunseeker. For €200 per person, the offer includes a personal skipper, a bottle of champagne and local snacks. What’s more, Uber has thought of everything, offering included transfers to and from any point on the island. This offer not only reinforces the American giant’s vision of becoming a multimodal application, but also guarantees a high-quality, convenient and comfortable service.

Venice and Greece: the maritime adventure continues

The journey continues with the introduction of maritime services to two of Europe’s most iconic destinations. From 3 July, visitors to Venice will be able to get around in style thanks to Uber’s new ‘limo boat’ service. Called “Limo Boat”, this exclusive service, which costs €120 per crossing for up to six passengers, will give tourists an unforgettable way to explore the Venetian lagoon.

In July, Uber Boat will be extending its nautical wings to the Greek islands of Mykonos, Athens, Corfu and Santorini. Users of the app will be able to easily book boats to discover the fashionable beach clubs, secluded coves and hidden treasures of the Aegean Sea. These offers promise days filled with sun, sea and indelible memories.

Paris: An electric cruise on the Seine

For those who choose to discover Paris this summer, the ride-hailing platform has an even more special surprise in store… The Uber Cruise service is offering a one-hour cruise aboard an electric boat, allowing tourists to enjoy spectacular views of the Seine. On board, passengers will be able to see Notre-Dame, the Louvre and the Eiffel Tower while sipping champagne.

At Uber, we want to give our customers the ability to go wherever they want, wherever they are. This summer, we’re adding a range of must-do boating experiences to the Uber app in some of Europe’s most popular destinations, helping holidaymakers make the most of their trip on the high seas. Whether it’s sailing around Ibiza on your own private yacht or exploring the Venice lagoon by boat, we’re delighted to be adding a little Uber magic to our customers’ holidays this summer.
