Uber Is Launching A Food Delivery Service In Spain

Written by Allison

UberFollowing the government’s decision in Spain to not allow Uber to set up their taxi service, they decided to go a different way. In February this year saw the first of their food delivery services begin in Barcelona. The same service will shortly be coming to Madrid.

Uber’s taxi service was banned from running in Spain in December 2014. The reason stated was that this service posed unfair competition to the taxi services that already existed. If that wasn’t enough the courts also ordered that Spanish telephone companies must block any online connections to Uber, through either the web or their own app.

UberEats is a new service and one that allows them to collaborate with various food guide websites. This service has already been in existence in the States in places such as Beverly Hills and Los Angeles and is known as Uber Fresh.

They are suggesting that when you use their app you are able to find, order and get food delivered to you in under 10 minutes. The restaurants that are listed on this app are ones that will have been recommended by the food guide website in the city where the service is provided.

UberEats app

The UberEats app is available for all smartphones. So you shouldn’t have any problems getting it downloaded and installed on yours.

When it comes to ordering food its quite simple. After entering the app through the UberEats icon you are then asked to enter a location where you want the delivery to be made to. Then you choose a meal from the menus provided. Once your order has been placed one of Uber’s drivers collects the food and delivers it to you.

You don’t have to worry about paying for the food on its arrival as payment is made through Uber. To use this service you need to provide them with your bank card or credit card details.

Unlike other food delivery services, what you’ll love about this one is that the menu changes each day. Offering you the chance to try something wonderful and new everytime you order.

Restaurant MadridA lot of restaurants appear to be happy with the idea of such a service, as it offers them the opportunity to reach new customers. Providing them with the opportunity to see their business grow.

Uber seem to have got this service right, as they have done with their other delivery service UberRush. For many people when they order food for delivery it seems to take an age to not only get things ordered but then wait for it to arrive. But with UberEats all it takes is a few taps on your phones screen and everything is done. Life will never be the same again when it comes to eating at home with this service becoming available in Madrid.
