To do a round trip on Uber, you will need to follow these steps:
- Open the Uber app on your smartphone and enter your destination for the first leg of your trip.
- Once you arrive at your destination, do not end the ride. Instead, keep the ride active by leaving the app open.
- Complete your business or activity at your destination and get back into the vehicle.
- Enter your destination for the return trip in the Uber app.
- The driver will then navigate to your destination and drop you off.
- Once you have arrived at your final destination, end the ride.
- You will be charged for the entire round trip based on the distance and time traveled.
It’s important to keep in mind that some drivers may prefer not to do a round trip and may end the ride after the first leg of the trip. In this case, you will need to request a new ride for the return trip. Additionally, some drivers may charge an additional fee for waiting during the intermediate time between the two legs of the trip.
What Is Round Trip on Uber?
A round trip on Uber refers to a ride that involves traveling from one point to another and then returning back to the original starting point. This can be useful for individuals who need to run errands, attend appointments, or engage in activities at a location before returning to their starting point. Instead of requesting two separate rides, users can request a single ride for both legs of the trip, which is referred to as a round trip. Uber charges the user based on the total distance and time traveled during the entire trip, including waiting time between the two legs of the journey.

Is Uber Intercity a Round Trip?
Uber Intercity is not necessarily a round-trip service. It is a service that allows passengers to travel between two cities or destinations, but the trip can be either one-way or round trip depending on the passenger’s preference. When you request an Uber Intercity ride, you can choose to either book a one-way or round-trip ride. If you choose a round trip, the driver will wait for you at your destination and then take you back to your starting point. However, if you book a one-way ride, the driver will drop you off at your destination and the trip will end there.
Uber Round Trip Cost
The cost of an Uber round trip will depend on several factors, including the distance between the two points, the time of day, and the type of vehicle you choose. Uber calculates the fare based on a base fare, a per-minute charge, and a per-mile charge.
To get an estimate of the cost for a round trip, you can use the Uber fare estimator tool on the Uber website or app. Just enter your starting point and destination, select “Round trip” as your ride type, and then enter the date and time of your trip. The estimator will give you an estimate of the total cost of the trip, including any applicable taxes and fees.
It’s important to keep in mind that the estimate provided by the Uber fare estimator is just an approximation and the actual cost may be higher or lower depending on the actual conditions of the trip.
Uber Round Trip Wait Time
When you book a round trip on Uber, the driver will wait for you during the intermediate time between the two legs of the trip. The wait time policy varies depending on the location and the type of service you have booked.
For UberX, UberXL, and Uber Comfort, the first 10 minutes of waiting time are free. After that, you will be charged an additional fee for each minute of waiting time beyond the initial 10 minutes.
For Uber Black and Uber SUV, the first 15 minutes of waiting time are free, and the additional waiting time charges start after the initial 15 minutes.
The waiting time charges vary depending on your location and can be found in the app’s fare details for your trip. It’s important to keep in mind that if you exceed the maximum waiting time allowed for your service type, the driver may end the ride and leave, and you will need to request a new ride for the remaining part of your journey.
How to Add a Stop in Uber Ride?
To add a stop in an Uber ride, you can follow these steps:
- Open the Uber app and enter your destination as you normally would.
- Once you have entered your destination, tap on “Where to?” at the bottom of the screen.
- From here, select “Add a Stop” located underneath your destination.
- Enter the address of the stop you wish to make, or search for a nearby landmark or business.
- Tap “Done” when you have entered your stop.
- Your driver will be notified of the additional stop and will follow the route provided by the app.
- If you need to add more stops, repeat the process by selecting “Add a Stop” again.
Note that adding a stop may increase the fare of your ride, as the distance and time required to reach each stop are taken into account. Additionally, the time spent at each stop is typically limited to a few minutes, and the driver may end the ride if the stop exceeds the allotted waiting time.
