Secure yourself a sightseeing cruise, water taxi, boat ride or private yacht at the tap of a button with Uber’s new offering.

Each year from June to August, Antipodeans flee the chilly winter of the Southern Hemisphere for the sun-soaked coasts of Europe. From the French and Italian Rivieras to the beaches of Croatia and the islands of Greece, Europe’s hotspots soothe the winter blues. New data obtained by Uber from Euro-summer 2023 found increasing demand from international customers for Uber’s mobility services by up to 55% in places such as Greece and Spain. In fact, more than 6.5 million international customers used the Uber app in Europe’s most popular destinations last summer, with more than 800,000 people opening the Uber app in the past 12 months in Ibiza alone. In response, the American multinational transportation company has today launched three new services across six destinations: Uber Yacht, Uber Cruise and Uber Boat.
