Google Trips
Are you a traveller but keep forgetting things about your itinerary like hotel location, flight tickets, places to visits. Now you don't need tot care about these much but enjoy your travel. Gmail/inbox was already collecting related information at one place for you , Google trips is the separate app for same initiative with a lot more features.
The app has complete guides for more than 200 major cities, and each of those has six main features: Reservations, Things to Do, Saved Places, Day Plans, Food & Drink and Getting Around. There are guides for most other cities as well, but you won’t get Day Plans and Getting Around options for those smaller locations.

It’s Free

There is no fine print here. As long as you don’t consider the fact that Google now has a new way of collecting your data as a price to pay, there is no monetary charge for using the app. This is significant if you compare it to similar travel apps like TripIt, which costs $49 per year for its premium service.

  2. Set pickup info : Set your pickup date, time, location, and destination, and get a fare estimate.
  3. Confirm your trip : Confirm the details of your upcoming trip and tap Schedule. You can edit or cancel at any time before your ride is ready.
  4. Enjoy your ride : We’ll send you reminders the day of the trip and notify you when your ride is on the way. We’ll also let you know if surge pricing applies.


Q: Who can use Scheduled Rides?
A: All riders are able to schedule their next ride in any city where Scheduled Rides are enabled.

Q: How much does it cost?
A: Scheduled Rides are priced exactly like a normal uberX ride and subject to pricing conditions at the future time the request is made. Surge pricing may apply.

Q: What if I need to cancel my scheduled ride?
A: No problem. You can cancel anytime before your car is dispatched to pick you up, and after it’s dispatched you can cancel up to 5 minutes (per our normal policy) without a cancellation fee.

Q: Am I guaranteed to get a ride?
A: Uber actively monitors availability to ensure that a car will arrive during the period you schedule a ride, but does not guarantee your scheduled ride. In the rare case a car cannot be found, you’ll be notified immediately.

Combination of Google trips and Ride Scheduling
Now you can use Uber together, just like you book your flight, hotel etc, simply book your ride in advance between your home to airport, airport to hotel etc. No need to worry at last moment. These is no official tie -up between uber and google the same but you can plan your rides based upon your itinerary and sights you plan to visit according to time.

Hope uber is already there where you are planning to visit. Hope uber and google trips will merge their plan soon.

How to Re-authorize or unlink paytm with Uber India App

Having and active Uber and Paytm account is good, but if something goes wrong from either Uber or paytm side, you the customer suffers a lot. You can't book your ride back home, you can't book ride to airport, railway station. It becomes annoying to have such messy technical app. We cannot predict what may happen in future but we may be ready with some preparation.

Uber does all account sweep for security measures from time to time, if it finds any suspicion, it blocks account, put hold on booking a ride, asks for re-verification of ID or payment method. Recently Paytm was hacked and some hacker were able to make payment in paytm from some other account, hance Uber took security measure and put hold on some accounts.

The above image shows Merchants Authorized by you (Screenshot updated), where you can see Uber if you have already added paytm with uber.

How can you regain access of your Uber account once it's disabled?

Update: Banned account is a pain, I have many friends who got locked out form Uber due to suspicious activity, some got their account enabled again after some conversation with Uber support and mostly are banned for life. Here is one scenario when you account may get banned. Read this story till end to get the idea.

Q. How can you regain access of your Uber account once it's disabled?

Recently uber had this scheme of "refer someone, that refferal gets 600 credits and you get 600 when he makes his/her first ride".

I made many people join , though all refferals were real and accounts were created with their permission and presence but all accounts were created from my phone .

I earned many credits. But soon my account was closed down.
Now whenever I try logging in from any acount in my phone  it gets banned within few minutes.

Is there any solution or any hack to avoid this and get my acount back ? I still have 5k credits left in my account and I desperately want it.
