National Express, the UK’s largest coach operator, has teamed up with public transport giants Uber to offer customers a new travel booking experience.

Uber Travel, Uber’s new door-to-door travel product, sees the introduction of coach and rail travel available for booking on the Uber app. The expansion of the new service means people across the country will now be able to book National Express journeys and centralize all their domestic travel bookings. Uber Travel’s booking functionality is powered by Omio, the world’s leading ground transportation platform.

After a tumultuous few years of international travel, new research from Uber has found nearly 3 in 5 Britons say they are now more likely to holiday in the UK rather than abroad.

Uber app users who are certain of their travel dates can opt for exclusive online National Express fares to travel from one of hundreds of pick-up points in major UK cities, or a transfer airport direct to Luton Airport, London Stansted, London Heathrow, London Gatwick, Manchester Airport, Birmingham Airport and Bristol Airport. Fully flexible tickets are also available for users who require flexibility for coach ticket changes at no additional cost.

Customers who book their bus or train reservations on the Uber app will also receive 10% of the cost of their reservation in the form of Uber Credits, to be used on future trips, travel reservations or Uber Eats deliveries.

Andrew Brem, Managing Director of Uber UK, said: “Uber users have been able to book rides, bikes, boat services and scooters on the Uber app for several years now. We are delighted to extend Uber Travel, adding the UK’s best travel services on rail and road, creating the ultimate door-to-door travel experience.

Chris Hardy, Managing Director of National Express UK Coach, said: “We are proud to offer our customers convenient and great value travel on the newest and greenest coach fleet in the world. UK. Being part of the Uber Travel expansion means Uber users can easily access safe and reliable coach travel that’s great for the pocket and the environment. We are delighted to see customers taking advantage of the new offer. »
