Advance Booking – Improve Your Uber Experience


The Uber app comes pre-equipped with so many features designed to create the ultimate riding experience for passengers. With features like “driver ETA” and “share your trip details with loved ones”, the Uber app has enough features to ensure riders have a satisfactory trip. The Uber app helps passengers request rides from the comfort of any location as long as there is access to the internet. Uber riders place a request through the Uber app and get matched with registered Uber drivers who pick them up right at their doorsteps or a pre-determined location.

When riders demanded more functionality from the Uber app, Uber introduced the advance booking option. Now, Uber riders in certain cities can schedule Uber ahead. This Uber advance booking option brought tremendous improvements to the Uber app. Now, you can schedule a ride up to 30 days ahead. At the start of the week or month, you can schedule all your rides ahead on your Uber app.

In some cities, riders will find that the Uber advance booking option is unavailable. This just means the feature is not available in your city. To bridge the gap, the Kommen app was created.


What is Kommen?

Uber advance booking option is mostly used by busy people to settle their transportation needs while they focus on other important parts of their lives. Since this feature is only available in select Uber markets, the Kommen app was created to allow Uber users all over the world schedule their rides in advance. So, if Uber is available in your city, Kommen will be available as well to help you schedule a ride ahead. Since Kommen syncs with the Uber app to provide the ultimate Uber experience, the Kommen app is also certainly for everyone.


So how does Kommen work?

The Kommen app is an online platform where Uber riders can schedule rides ahead if Uber operates within that city. In every city Uber operates in, Kommen will let app users schedule Uber 15minutes to 30 days in advance. You can cancel your scheduled ride up to 5 minutes after the ride is on the way to pick you up without attracting any cancellation fee. Advance Booking

The Kommen app is a third party app designed to act as your reliable Uber companion. The Kommen app will not call you an Uber if the ride is surging. Once the surge is over, the app will call you a ride. To use Kommen, follow the steps below:

Airport Rides and Kommen Advance Booking


Airport rides are very important. I guess it is safe to say that most people are anxious about traveling most of the time. Sometimes they don’t want to arrive at the airport late, or because they do not want to leave any important thing behind, or probably just excited about the plans they have at the travel destination. All these come together with other factors to make airport rides quite different from the regular rides you take within the city.

I have found from interacting with thousands of Uber customers via our support email, that many people are anxious about pre-scheduling their airport rides. This is probably because it is one of those cases where planning is imperative and you cannot afford to have anything go wrong. In addition to the fact that there’s always so much to carry along, the timing is also so early sometimes or really late that you just cannot afford to have some friend or family drive you there at that time.

What Goes Wrong?

First, you have to worry so much about the possibility of getting a ride at that time, especially when it’s so early. In some of these cases, you end up opting for taxis and for-hire vehicles which are usually pricey and unreliable. Although, it becomes easier when you realize you can use an Uber, it’s still off-putting to know you have to add ordering a ride and driver’s early arrival to your list of last-minute worries.

How Kommen Can Help

The app Kommen, by letting you schedule your rides way ahead of time, can help take away all of your worries. Advance BookingWith a function that lets you schedule a ride as far as 30 days out, you can sit back and concentrate on getting ready for a driver who will definitely be there at the exact set time. Since Kommen works on calling you ride a few minutes before your set time, you ride gets there at the exact time you have set. By taking one of your worries away, Kommen lets you focus on getting packed and the other things that matter, like spending the last few minutes before your journey with the ones you love.
