Uber extends Uber Comfort service in six Romanian cities
Uber is extending the Uber Comfort service to its users in 6 more Romanian cities. People in Craiova, Galati, Pitesti, Ploiesti, Constanta and Cluj will now benefit from a new travel option in the app, with more comfort. In addition to UberX, Uber users can now also select the “Comfort” option in the Uber app and order trips in comfortable cars and with top-rated, experienced drivers.
The Uber Comfort service comes at a slightly higher price than UberX (20% more on average) and offers passengers access to experienced drivers with top ratings and with particularly high-quality, comfortable cars with extra legroom.
In addition, riders can indicate their ride preferences on the app before the trip begins: they can choose from three temperature options and specify in advance whether they prefer to ride in silence or chat. As another difference from UberX, the driver waits for up to ten minutes at the pick-up point for a small surcharge.
Ana Maria Borlovan, Country Operations Manager at Uber Romania said: “We are happy to extend Uber Comfort to all of the cities that we have recently launched in and offer more options to Romanian users. At Uber, we are always making efforts to provide the best products for riders, who will now be able to book trips with more comfortable vehicles, top rated drivers, and a personalized service, for just a slightly higher price than UberX. This new service is available to all of the users who want to travel comfortably and arrive relaxed at their destination, while at the same time providing new earnings opportunities for top-rated drivers.”
