Uber for Business is a service provided by Uber that allows you to manage all business-related Uber trips from one account. With Uber for Business, you can book trips for employees, clients, or yourself and track each trip remotely.

The service extends to creating a commute program for employees, allowing them to travel to and from work with fewer obstacles. Uber Eats can also be linked to your account using Eats for Business, for meals in the office or at events.

Pricing:

You pay for each trip individually, which is calculated according to distance and duration, as well as the type of vehicle used. A cost estimate is available once you've selected your destination and vehicle type.

Uber for Business
Review:

Pros: Payments are automatically deducted after each trip. Trips can be tracked in real time.

Cons: It is difficult to estimate monthly expenses for Uber as the trip duration, time of day, and vehicle used affect the cost of the trip. Trips may not be regular, either.

Bottomline: A great way to keep track of trips for business, whether the trips are made by clients, staff, or management.
