LIFT and Uber have released a brand-new Airport Reserve product, offering travellers an even easier and more affordable way to get to and from the airport. Whilst life seems to be returning to normality, air travel remains stressful and uncertain. As part of the offer, passengers who book and fly with LIFT between August 3 – 31 can save up to 40% on the cost of their trips to and from select airports pre-booked using the Uber app (the promotion is only valid for a limited number of people, so it’s fastest fingers first!).


They will receive a promotional code sent by LIFT, which will provide the rider with an amount off the cost of up to 2 (two) rides to/from the arrival and departure airports.


Then, Airport Reserve allows riders to book a premium airport pickup with 60 minutes of wait time included in their fare, along with delay notifications sent to their driver. Riders can reserve a trip up to 30 days before their flight and can cancel their trip request free of charge up to one hour before the scheduled time.


The feature also conveniently includes flight tracking integration which automatically adjusts the reservation time based on flight information to help make sure that the driver is ready and waiting at the airport when the flight lands, whether it’s on time, early or delayed.

We are excited about working with LIFT to help get the world moving again in a hassle-free way. We recognise that consumer needs evolve all the time and this new addition to our product suite is indicative to our commitment of improving their experience on the platform.
