Uber has several features flying under the radar. The Uber Family Profile is one of those features. This feature helps cut down on the hassle and allows you and up to four other family members to ride using the same payment method.
A family profile allows people to share and ride under the same payment method. It also allows everyone on the family profile to track the person’s ride and see their estimated arrival time.
Setting up a family profile is easy. Open the Uber app and tap on "Settings". Scroll down and tap on "Family" then on "Set up your Family". You can even edit the name "Family" to match your last name if you wish. Tap "Invite Member" and enter their phone number before selecting "Send Invite". The people you have chosen will receive an invite to join your family profile. They are now able to choose to bill their rides to your payment method.
Yes you can. In the Family section of the app you will be able to delete the entire profile or an individual member at any time.
Yes. UberFAMILY is now known as Uber Car Seat; these profiles allow riders to request UberX vehicles with a car seat to make it easier to travel with an infant or small child. The cost for an Uber Car Seat is the same as an UberX plus $10 surcharge for the use of the carseat.
Uber used to allow minors to ride without an adult present, but that is no longer allowed. Any person under the age of majority must be riding with someone over the age of majority.
No. The riders on you Uber Family Profile will be able to bill their rides to your payment method, but they are not able to access your payment or credit card information in anyway.
Uber Family Profiles do not have any vehicle limitations, so riders on the profile can request a ride form any type of vehicle.
