How to Add a Stop on an Uber Ride

Adding a stop on an Uber ride is a great way to make the most of your transportation dollar. However, not everyone knows how to do it. For instance, some clients won’t even bother to add a stop to their trip. Besides, it may end up increasing the fare. You can avoid this pitfall by learning how to add a stop on an Uber ride.

The first step in adding a stop on an Uber ride is to open the app. Once you do, the Uber app will give you a list of suggested destinations to pick from. These suggestions are based on your past trips. Select the one that suits you best and then wait for your driver to arrive.

After you’ve picked a destination, you’ll want to make a stop. The next step is to enter that stop in the on-screen map. This is a good time to double check your choice of destination as the map will be updated automatically. When you’ve made your selection, tap the “Agree” button to confirm. Keep in mind that you’ll also be charged a per-minute fee if you stay more than two minutes at your destination.

You can also choose to request a new ride. As with any ride, you’ll need to choose a ride type, pay with a credit card or other method, and confirm that you’re going to the right place. Your new driver should be waiting for you. Just be sure to follow up with a “Thanks” message.

You can also add multiple stops on an Uber route. In fact, the app will allow you to make up to three stops on any single trip. To do this, you’ll need to specify a destination and a vehicle type, as well as read the instructions on the bottom of the screen.

You can even make a round-trip using the Uber app, but you’ll need to be prepared to spend more money. If you’re not ready to leave, you can call your driver and ask to be rerouted. Although this won’t necessarily result in an improved fare, it will get you where you need to go.

Besides the obvious, adding a stop on an Uber ride can be a good way to save money. For example, you could save up to a half-hour by adding a second stop on your journey. It’s worth noting, however, that you should keep your stops to no more than three minutes. Otherwise, you’ll end up paying more than you should.

The Uber app is available for iPhone and Android devices. You can also use the app’s help section to learn more about the features. There’s also an in-app map. Finally, the app will tell you if you’re doing the right thing with your stop-making, but you’ll have to be patient. Using the app to add a stop on an Uber ride is surprisingly easy.

Lastly, the app may also allow you to request a refund. If your ride isn’t the right one for you, you can get a refund through your credit card, or you can ask for it on the Uber app.
