Over the past few years Uber has dominated the world market for on-demand transportation. As of 2019, Uber is available in more than 60 countries, making traveling across the globe a more comfortable experience for Uber adoptees. With riders using Uber more and more while traveling, we find that the most common question asked on our site is "How much is an Uber ride going to cost in X?". Travelers love to plan out their expenses, rightfully so, and we are happy to be able to help with our all-inclusive fare comparison calculator. For a bit of fun our team decided to take a look at the average cost of an Uber ride around the world.

For this study, we took 50 countries where you can hail an Uber and averaged the cost of a ride for a 5km journey. All prices were converted to USD for comparison purposes. The average price for a 5km Uber ride ranged from $13.90 all the way down to $1.10!

This study provides a fun cost of living example, allowing us to determine the amount of money you need to sustain a certain lifestyle in any given place.
