Uber, the world’s largest on-demand transportation company has announced a convenient, hassle-free and cashless mobility solution – UberWeddings, for all wedding-related travel needs. Available in 12 cities across India, this initiative will be live till February 2017.
“Weddings in India are typically an elaborate affair, often spanning month long planning and week-long celebrations involving family and friends. While we all enjoy the fun and celebration, they also bring in the logistical challenge of coordination and managing commuting needs. UberWeddings provides an easy way for hosts to ensure, all wedding-related travel in the city is managed through cashless pre-generated promo codes. So, whether it is about hopping between markets, finding the perfect outfit, or getting guests to the venue, Uber will make it happen in a pre-decided budget, at a push of a button. All our users need to focus on is the wedding,” said Prabhjeet Singh, General Manager Delhi NCR, Uber India.
For UberWeddings, Uber is partnering with WedMeGood, a wedding planning website, where it will go live with various wedding-themed on-demands available across 12-cities, for e.g.: bachelor/bachelorette parties, dinners and other wedding-related celebrations.
Prior to the wedding, hosts can buy a specific number of Uber rides of set denominations (promo code based) on a specifically dedicated page on the WedMeGood website. They can then, share them with their guests as an extension to their invitations or give them to their family members to ride for free during preparations. This will enable the host to keep a track of their travel expenses without worrying about coordinating pick-ups and drops, parking, waiting charges. The promo codes can also be customized with the host’s name or their wedding hashtag, which will be printed by Uber and made available within 3 working days of the purchase request.
UberWeddings, in partnership with WedMeGood went live in New Delhi on November 13, and will be available in 12 cities in India, which include, Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Chandigarh, Chennai, Hyderabad, Jaipur, Kolkata, Ludhiana, New Delhi, Pune, Udaipur and Lucknow.
