How much luggage can I bring in my Uber/Lyft?

One of the most common questions we hear at RideGuru is “How much luggage can I fit in my Uber?”. No one wants to pay extra for a larger vehicle if they can fit in the standard size but there is also the very real fear that your ride will show up and you will not be able to fit all your luggage! To help solve this dilemma, our team has gone through the popular rideshare options and estimated the amount of luggage that you can carry with you.

Take a look below for example vehicles, maximum number of riders, and recommended maximum luggage amount for each type of rideshare service.

 

The Standard Economy Rides

Includes: Uber X, Uber Pop, Uber Go, Lyft
 Toyota Prius, Toyota Camry, Ford Escape, Ford Escort
  4
Trunk space for 2-3 large suitcases or 3-4 medium/small suitcases. If you have fewer passengers you could also fit extra luggage in the cab.

The XL Rides

Includes: UberXL, Lyft Plus
 Toyota Highlander, Chevrolet Traverse, Ford Explorer, Dodge Durango
  6
If there are 4 or less passengers (this allows 3rd row of seating to be folded down), you can fit 4-5 large suitcases or 5-6 medium suitcases. If you have a party of 6 you will only be able to fit 2-3 medium suitcases behind the 3rd row.

 

The Shared Rides

Includes: Uber Pool, Lyft Line
 Toyota Prius, Toyota Camry, Ford Escape, Ford Escort
  2
With shared rides you need to be aware that your car may be picking up other passengers along your route who also have items to place in the car/trunk. For this reason, you should limit yourself to one piece of luggage when taking a shared ride.

The Luxury Rides

Includes: Uber Black, Uber Lux, Lyft Premier, Uber Select

Luxury rides can be tricky to estimate the amount of luggage space as the luxury vehicle you get may be either a sedan or an SUV. A good rule of thumb is to assume you will receive a sedan unless you order a luxury SUV service such as Uber SUV or Lyft Lux SUV (see below).

 Lincoln Towncar, Chevy Tahoe, Mercedes 500 series or larger, BMW 5-7 Series, Range Rover
  4
Trunk space for 2-3 large suitcases or 3-4 medium/small suitcases. If you have fewer passengers you could also fit extra luggage in the cab.

The SUV Luxury Rides

Includes: Uber SUV and Lyft Lux SUV
 Cadillac Escalade, Toyota Sequoia, Lincoln Navigator, GMC Yukon
  6
If there are 4 or less passengers (this allows 3rd row of seating to be folded down), you can fit 4-5 large suitcases or 5-6 medium suitcases. If you have a party of 6 you will only be able to fit 2-3 medium suitcases behind the 3rd row.

It is important to note that most drivers will have their trunk cleared out for you, but it is still always a good idea to call your driver as soon as you request your ride to ensure that their car can handle your luggage!
