UberXL Launches In Cape Town!

Cape Town it is time to supersize your Uber experience with the uberXL! This new, roomy ride can seat up to six people, and is another convenient, low cost option from Uber Cape Town. If you are a part of the #UberFam, you know that our cars usually seat four passengers. This awesome new way to ride means you can now seat those additional two friends and split the fare between 6 people, lowering the fare considerably. Your pick-up will be a stylish and comfortable Toyota Avanza (or equivalent).


That’s not all … uberXL is available to use throughout Cape Town as well as the surrounding winelands area. This is the perfect opportunity to go on that wine trip with your friends. Think cruising the Constantia Valley, flying through fabulous Franschhoek and styling in Stellies. Planning on going large one night? Then go XL. When last did you and your mates have pre-drinks before a big night out? Now with uberXL, you can arrive (and leave) in safety and style whatever your destination. Want to know the best part? Ordering an uberXL is no different to before! Open up your Uber app and you’ll see two vehicle options to choose from: uberX and uberBLACK. Toggle over uberX and select uberXL. Set your pickup location and tap the “request uberXL” button. Don’t forget to shoot us some feedback via the in-app rating screen after your trip!


Our latest offering, uberXL means you don’t have to part ways with your crew ever again: a fun option for beach missions, restaurant takeovers, clubbing, you name it. After all – friends forever, ride together, that’s #UberLove.

    Does Uber XL allow small furniture to be carried with passengers in Cape Town…?

    We need a ride from Cape Town International Airport for 3 adults, an infant (own car seat) and our luggage (3 large suitcases, 4 pieces of hand luggage and a collapsed stroller). Will UberXL be large enough?
