Lyft has been offering car rentals for some time but it was only last year that it partnered with SIXT to expand its offering. I've never used the Lyft app to book a rental car, but that might change now that Lyft is offering its Lyft Pink members free upgrades with SIXT.
American Express has an existing partnership with Uber in the form of credits that its Platinum Card offers cardholders on a monthly basis. Now that partnership is being expanded to give Platinum, Gold, and Green Card holders access to a new Uber benefit as well as to give Amex Gold Card holders access to Uber credits.
In May 2019 Hilton Honors and Lyft launched a new partnership under which Hilton Honors members can earn points towards future stays when they use the Lyft ridesharing service. Now Hilton is back with a new offer to tempt guests to link their Honors and Lyft accounts.
Hilton and Lyft have just announced a partnership that allows Hilton Honors members to earn points on all the rides they book with the ridesharing service. The partnership is effective immediately so the sooner you link your Hilton and Lyft accounts the sooner you'll start earning Hilton Honors points.
On Monday I wrote about my experience with Uber at London's Heathrow Airport where, after requesting a ride via the Uber app, I had drivers calling me up to ask where I was going then cancelling my ride within minutes of me refusing to answer the question. After pulling together the evidence of what had gone on I emailed Uber to report the drivers concerned and I've now had a reply.
I don't normally have to take Uber rides when I fly into London Heathrow as there's a local car service on which I usually rely. Last week, however, my usual service was unavailable so I decided to see what Uber was like when I flew in to the UK....I wish I hadn't.
A post written by View From The Wing yesterday really made my blood boil. Actually, saying that it made my blood boil is an understatement of colossal proportions. It actually made me want to slap the Uber CEO into the next zip code...and that's disappointing because I don't condone violence against anyone.
I had a mixture of good and bad experiences when using Uber on a recent visit back to Los Angeles and one of the things that really stuck out for me was how quickly I stopped having much faith in the ratings I was seeing in the app.
Joanna and I were back in LA recently and decided to experiment with not having a rental car and, instead, use Uber whenever we needed to get anywhere that required a car. The experiment was one that came to us when we realised that the cost of renting a car for the 6 nights we were in town coupled with the cost to park was verging on the ridiculous.
