The Gracious Girl shares her tips for taking an #UberAdventure

Posted: Updated:

It’s not uncommon to Uber while on vacation, but have you ever thought of using the ride-sharing service for a staycation?

The Gracious Girl was set out with a challenge of exploring Portland with her out of town friend, Liz, and all for under $50.

Here are her her tips for getting the most out of your next #UberAdventure.

  1. {Be adventurous} Seek out new and fun spots to explore. Ask friends or even ask your Uber driver.
  2. {Have a Plan} Maybe you don’t have exact locations, but know the general area/ neighborhood you are looking to explore. Knowing this will keep your adventure moving forward. Backtracking not only wastes money but adventure time too.
  3. {Get the Download} Make sure you have the Uber app ready to go and use the Fare Estimator to help you stay on budget.
  4. {Start at the End} Parking at your final destination you ensure that your car will be waiting for you. Or better yet, Uber home.
  5. Have fun and laugh a lot!
