Your convenient rideshare app just got a little more official with the Uber Credit Card. For those already using Uber to get around and Uber Eats to get fed, the new credit card has rewards for you.
The Uber Credit Card earns 4 percent back on restaurants, take-out and bars; 3 percent back on airfare and hotels; 2 percent on online purchases, including music streaming services; and 1 percent back on everything else.
Some other perks to consider: The credit card offers no foreign transaction fees, exclusive event access and even phone protection. You can redeem points for Uber Cash by adding your Uber Visa Card to the Uber app, hitting the menu to reveal your available points and selecting the number you’d like to redeem — sounds simple enough. Just one catch, you have to earn at least 500 points first for $5 and 2,500 points for $25. Credit card users can redeem Uber Cash or gift cards of their choosing.
If you already have the Uber app, you can read more by tapping the Payment option under Menu, then View All Offers and Details in the Apply for the Uber Visa Card section.
There’s a whole lot to consider when opening a new credit card and a lot of responsibility with credit lines and payments, but if you’re already an avid Uber user, it might be a credit card worth considering.
Many travelers are exchanging their regular home lives for a more exciting life abroad. However, no matter where in the world you visit, money is needed to live a comfortable life. Gaining work experience abroad can diversity a resume and open opportunities worldwide. For travelers who wish to live a more nomadic lifestyle, getting a short-term job in a country is also a great option. This will ensure travelers have enough money to get by and give them experience. Before leaving for a country or while in a foreign land, travelers can use the internet to find jobs or local resources.
For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
One of the greatest sights in the world, the great pyramids of Giza, stands towering in the desert, the imposing stature dwarfing tourists for miles. Visitors to Giza might feel twangs of adventure and exploration, but guests should be warned climbing the pyramids is forbidden.
We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
Pitcairn Island is a remote patch of land between Eastern Island and French Polynesia, and Britain’s only inhabited territory in the Pacific. At only 15 square miles and a population of 50, it doesn’t exactly come to mind as an adventurous tourist destination. However, this tiny island is hiding some incredible opportunities.
