Uber to launch UberWEDDINGS.
Uber has launched its latest trick in India in preparation for wedding season.
The world’s largest online demand transportation service company has announced a cashless way to make wedding relations travel easier called UberWEDDINGS. The service will be made available to 12 cities across the country by February 2017.
“So whether it is about hopping between markets, finding the perfect outfit, or getting guests to the venue, Uber will make it happen in a pre-decided budget, at a push of a button. All our users need to focus on is the wedding,” Prabhjeet Singh, General Manager Delhi & NCR, Uber India said.
Uber is partnering up with WedMeGood, a wedding planning website that aids people in planning their wedding. WedMeGood will allow hosts to purchase a fleet of promo codes, check the denomination and other details. UberWEDDINGS will enable hosts to keep track of their travel expenses without worrying about co-ordinating pick-ups, drops, parking and waiting charges. The promo code, the company says, can also be customized with host’s name or their wedding hashtag and will be made available within three working days of the initial purchase.
UberWEDDINGS went live in New Delhi on 13th November, and is starting today in Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Chandigarh, Chennai, Hyderabad, Jaipur, Kolkata, Ludhiana, New Delhi, Pune, Udaipur and Lucknow. Besides India, Uber offers UberWEDDINGS in Washington DC, SF, New York, Boston and LA as well.
