UberTRIP Bali Gathering

Uber is developing from a single trip service to a complete trip. The company launched this new service, called UberTRIP, on November 16th, 2016 in Bali.

As an Uber consumer, I was glad to receive their invitation to attend the Uber Gathering with others Bloggers and Instagrammers on November 17th, 2016 at Zia Hotel Petitenget. I and Matt have been using Uber service since last year and it has been a really helpful application. Most of the time, I use it for going to the airport or a meeting place when the weather is unfriendly. But it never crossed my mind to explore Bali with Uber. I really could not put a number on the price that this service would cost. But Uber answer this with UberTRIP.

What is UberTRIP?

UberTRIP is an expanding service from Uber. The purpose is to give you the opportunity to get a personal driver who would be able to accompany you for a long(er) trip, and not only bringing you from a point A to a point B. The trip is limited in time from 5 to 10 hours, but you can theoretically go as far as you want and make as many stops as you decide.

What is the difference between UberX and UberTRIP?

UberX only takes you to a single destination (from a point A to a point B) while UberTRIP can bring you to as many destinations as you like. The pricing system between the two services is also slightly different. Take a look at the two pictures below (available on Uber website), to understand the differences between the two fare calculation systems.
