Uber Pet’s now officially launched in the UK
Once upon a time, you could simply take your pet in the Uber with yourself with an agreement from the driver BUT as of today it is officially chargeable and available.
Passengers will be able to book journeys with pets in the UK as part of the new service.
The app company said the service will be available in the UK from today.
Fares for Uber Pet journeys will include a surcharge of £3.20 in London and £2 outside the capital but the owner MUST be with the animal.
Andrew Brem, general manager at Uber UK, said: “We’re really happy to be launching Uber Pet in the UK, bringing even more convenient travel options to our riders.
“With Covid-19 restrictions lifted, it’s the perfect time for new pets to get out and about again with you, no matter what your plans.”
The company will donate £1 from every Uber Pet fare to the charity All Dogs Matter.
