Uber launches services on Greek islands for summer


Uber is launching across top holiday destinations in Europe, with taxi services becoming available across parts of Greece and Spain.

According to Evening Standards, Uber’s services will become available on the Greek islands of Santorini and Mykonos.

Tourists will be able to use Uber Comfort on Santorini and Mykonos, as well as in Corfu and Rhodes.

In Mykonos, the brand-new Uber Boat service, which enables customers to book a speedboat via the Uber app, will also be available. The Uber Reserve function can even be used on the island, with people able to book their ride in advance (from 30 minutes to 90 days) for a locked price.

“We’re expecting tourism across Europe to reach record figures this summer,” Anabel Diaz, Vice President, Head of EMEA Mobility at Uber, said.

“That is why we’re launching Uber services across dozens of European vacation destinations — from Uber Reserve, allowing travellers to book up to 90 days in advance, to Uber Boat, a splashy new experience that will make Mykonos more memorable than ever before.”

Uber’s expansion comes after the launch of Uber Flights in May, the step-by-step instructions for airports, while UK costumers can already book trains and coaches through the app.
