In this weeks travel tech review I spotlight a game-changing car service app that will soon become a household name.

It’s called UBER and it’s available for iOS and Android.

Click HERE to visit the site.

Here are some details from the video:

Uber will send the nearest driver to pick you up, and text message you an estimated arrival time. Cars usually arrive within 5-10 minutes.
Your licensed professional driver will park curbside in a sleek black car. Uber will text you again when the car arrives.
Hop in the car, tell the driver your destination and you’ll be on your way.

When the ride is over, Uber will automatically charge your credit card on file.
No cash is necessary. Please thank your driver, but tip is already included.

About TripKnowledgy

My name is Spencer Howard, and I’m an Concierge/Host/Drunk who has spent the majority of the past 9 years on the road, hopping from hotel to hotel for months at a time. Through trial and mostly error, I’ve become what the airport security line calls an “Expert Traveler.” (It makes my Mother proud)

But for those of us who go beyond occasional puddle jumper and enter the world of Hotel Homebody, it takes more than a complimentary mint and a flat screen TV to warm the cockles of our hearts.

I hope you have insurance, because I’m gonna be throwing some knowledge bombs at your face.
