Prone to the odd bout of airport arrival time anxiety? Thank heavens for Uber and the all-new Uber Reserve, which not only offers you a reliable, pre-planned ride to the airport at a time of your choosing, but also a healthy amount of Avios, while youre at it. 

Every pound spent with Uber could get you that much closer to your next dream getaway

Everyday earnings

That’s right: many much-coveted Avios are up for grabs when you make life easier with Uber. Simply link your Executive Club and Uber accounts and collect 1 Avios for every £1 spent.* It’s yet another simple way to collect Avios in your everyday life and a lovely bonus. You can collect Avios whether you need a lift after an especially bulky grocery haul or you’re swerving a soggy commute to work. In the end, every pound spent on the roads could get you that much closer to your next dream getaway in the skies.

Book at leisure

Uber Reserve allows you to book trips to all major UK airports in advance from 30 minutes to 90 days ahead. It’s available across a range of UK locations, including Greater London, Manchester, the Southwest (including Bristol and Bath), Birmingham, Leeds, Leicester, Merseyside (mainly Liverpool) and Nottingham.

It gives you a huge amount of control, too. As soon as you book, you’ll be served a price that won’t change when you’re eventually charged, and is protected against surge charging.² An assigned driver means you’ll know exactly who you’ll be riding with, and you’ll receive reminders on the day of the trip, as well as notifications letting you know when your driver is approaching pickup. Change of plans? Not to worry, as you can cancel at no charge at least 60 minutes before your booking.

Ease, please

Why Uber, you ask? The ride-sharing giant’s network of UK-wide drivers means you’re never far from a car at every hour of the day or night, plus there are plenty of options to upgrade, should you need that extra slice of service on your travels.

Here’s a quick rundown of Uber’s most popular rides:

UberX – Kick back with Uber’s standard, most affordable ride

UberXL – With UberXL, expect a larger vehicle for groups of up to six

Uber Green – Save the planet one trip at a time with Uber’s 100 per cent electric vehicles, for the same price as UberX

Exec – Up the ante with a high-end car and one of Uber’s top-rated drivers

Lux – Splurge on a luxury car with Uber’s top-shelf offering

Premium position

If you’re travelling within London, Manchester, the Southwest and Birmingham, Uber Reserve’s Lux (London only) and Exec options offer premium service and the peace of mind that drivers will be ready for you 15 minutes beforehand, with 15 minutes of wait time included.³ You can expect top-of-the-range black car service, with models such as the Audi A8, BMW 7 series and the Tesla Model S on offer, plus the option to specify trip preferences down to the amount of conversation you’d like, and even your desired temperature, both of which can be requested in advance.

Bonus boost

And what you, our loyal Executive Club Members, will be pleased to discover is that, beyond the 1 Avios for £1 earning potential with every eligible Uber trip taken in the UK, you can also boost your balance with a healthy 500 bonus Avios if you make a booking with Uber Reserve before 31 August 2023.* To grab this bonus, simply link your Uber and Avios accounts and take an Uber Reserve trip by the end of August. Happy travels!
