Uber to launch advance bookings and hourly rides in Saudi Arabia

Uber customers in Saudi Arabia will soon be able to schedule trips up to 30 days in advance, the company announced Wednesday.

The company is also launching an “Hourly” service allowing users to book a car by the hour if they have multiple stops or trips planned throughout the day and want to keep the same car and driver on standby.

The “Uber Reserve” feature enables customers to schedule rides up to 30 days in advance.

The Uber Reserve service is primarily for passengers arriving at airports, and users can enter their travel information to let drivers know what time the passenger is expected to arrive.

While no clear timeline for the service’s rollout was given, Uber stated in a press release that Saudi Arabia will be one of the first foreign markets to access the services later this year.
