Uber has a limited area of use.

It can only be used in 13 areas: Awaji Island, Fukuoka, Fukushima, Hiroshima, Kobe, Kyotango, Kyoto, Nagoya, Chutonbetsu, Osaka, Sendai, Tokyo and Yokohama.

However, it may be available outside the area as long as it is within the 23 wards of Tokyo.

2.There is a limit on the number of people!

Uber has a limit on the number of people depending on the model.

When using with multiple people, it is necessary to confirm in advance because the capacity varies depending on the model of the vehicle to be arranged in advance.

When using Uber, select the vehicle type according to the number of people!

3.Prices change depending on the usage status of the entire app!

With Uber, prices vary depending on the usage of the entire app.

That is, if there are many users, the peak charge will be 1.2 times the normal charge.

Benefits of using Uber Eats in tourist destinations

I will explain the benefits of using Uber Eats in tourist destinations.

1.You can also receive food at hotels and tourist spots

By using Uber Suites, you can deliver food to hotels and tourist spots.

You can eat the food of delicious shops around the hotel and tourist spots.

2.You can choose from many shops

With more than 14,000 member stores, you can choose from a wide range of stores, from McDonald’s, Kentucky, Subway and other chain stores to privately owned stores.

3.It depends on the shop, but it will arrive in about 10 minutes at the shortest.

This depends on the situation of the delivery person on that day and the shop you ask for, but if the shop is close to the ordering place such as McDonald’s, it will arrive faster than you go to buy it yourself.

Basically, it will arrive in about 30 minutes after ordering.

4.You can easily order with just one smartphone

You can easily order by simply ordering from the smartphone app or the web.

5・Abundant payment methods

There are five payment methods: cash, credit card, LINE Pay, Apple Pay, and PayPay.

6.You can make a time reservation

Unlike other delivery services, Uber Suites can be booked on time.

You can specify the date, time, and time from 30 minutes to within a week.

Disadvantages of using Uber Eats in tourist destinations

I will explain the disadvantages of using Uber Eats in tourist spots.

1.The item may not arrive

It’s very rare that you don’t receive the item, but it’s actually happening.

The reason is that the delivery person will deliver it to another person’s home.

In many cases, there is no description of the building name or nameplate name.

Delivery staff basically use Google Maps for delivery, so if there is a building or house in a place that is difficult to understand on Google Maps, we will rely on the building name and nameplate for delivery.

Therefore, if the building is difficult to understand without the building name or nameplate, call the orderer.

If the phone is connected, you can hear the building name and nameplate, but if the phone does not connect, the delivery person will call the support center or deliver to the property that the delivery person thinks it is.

I think that many people feel resistance when it is delivered by the delivery person’s intuition, but the delivery person dislikes the loss of time because of the commission.

Therefore, there are delivery staff who do not call the support center and wait for a response, but deliver by intuition.

In that case, it may be delivered to another person’s home.

If you do not receive it, there is a customer service office, so let’s contact that!

2.The product may be messy

In rare cases, the product may be messed up because some delivery personnel have messy packaging.

However, there are many cases where the packaging on the shop side is bad.

In particular, sushi, soup, and drinks tend to get messy.

If it is messy, there is a customer service office, so let’s contact that!

3.It may take some time on rainy days

Uber Eats is a matching service that makes full use of IT and GPS to match “people who want to deliver food” and “delivery staff”.

Therefore, even if there is an orderer, it will not match without a delivery person.

Therefore, on a rainy day, if there are many orders and there are not enough delivery staff, it may be difficult to match and it may take time.

4.There is a loss depending on the delivery person

Uber Eats deliverers are called “delivery partners.” This is treated as “a sole proprietor with a partnership agreement” rather than Uber’s part-time staff.

Therefore, the delivery person is not an hourly wage system like a part-time job, but a sole proprietor and a commission. There is no such thing as employee education.

There are rarely common sense people because there is no hiring interview, anyone can be a deliveryman, and there is no such thing as employee training.

Therefore, some people who do not have common sense have poor packaging, bad manners, and improper handling.

5.Depending on where you ask, the shops you can order will change considerably

Uber Suites is expanding its delivery area steadily, but in new areas and areas in the suburbs, there are often few shops where you can order.

However, I think that the number of shops where you can order will increase in the future.
