There’s now a new way for businesses to pick up the tab on Uber trips. Uber Vouchers makes it easy for businesses of any kind to sponsor transportation for their customers.
With the launch of Uber Vouchers, businesses across Australia and New Zealand can create a differentiated customer experience to attract new clients or support loyalty and service for existing customers.
Georgia Foster, Head of Uber for Business in Australia & New Zealand, said: “Uber’s goal is to unlock an additional growth lever for businesses by creating an innovative way to bring customers to their door or wherever they need to go.
“As companies look for new technology and novel ways to engage with consumers, Vouchers provide a perk that businesses know their customers will use, providing a streamlined travel experience to get from A to B.”
The Uber for Business team began beta testing Vouchers in late 2018, with over 100 partners globally including selected businesses in Australia and New Zealand. A diverse group of retailers, restaurants and services across industries have leveraged the product in unique and creative ways.
Starting today, businesses can now sign up online and apply this technology innovation to enhance the travel experience for their customers.
In the services space, Australian car mechanics booking site Autoguru.com.au has been using Vouchers to allow customers to get to and from service locations.
Eden Shirley, CEO and founder of Autoguru, says: “Uber Vouchers offers us an innovative way to provide convenience for our customers. Getting to and from the mechanic can be a hassle for some people, and being able to solve this problem with an easily redeemable Uber voucher was a natural solution for us. Autoguru is revolutionising the car servicing space, so we’re pleased to work with a trailblazer like Uber on a customer-centric transport solution.”
For leading hotel brand, QT Hotels and Resorts, Uber Vouchers offers a consumer-friendly means to facilitate travel when exploring a new destination. The global reach of Uber’s brand means that QT Hotels can rely on Uber Vouchers to offer local and international guests with ground transportation, regardless of where travellers call home.
Director of Brand and Communications, Victoria Doidge, sees added potential for offering travel experiences to QT guests via Uber Vouchers. “We’ve been working with Uber to offer our guests access to unique experiences when visiting Sydney – and we’ll soon extend this program to our eight additional QT properties across Australia and New Zealand. By providing an Uber Voucher to a valued QT guest, we enable them to access a seamless travel experience and remove the difficulties of navigating an unknown city.”
Companies who already offer customers transportation such as shuttle services or rental cars, be it in the hospitality sector or in the insurance space, can also make effective use of Vouchers. Other businesses can utilise Uber vouchers as an alternative to people driving when parking is scarce, or for getting to and from events when a few drinks might be consumed.
Businesses can sign-up for Vouchers by creating an Uber for Business account at uber.com/business and enabling the Vouchers portal. In this portal, companies can customise a Voucher campaign or program based on their needs and goals.
