Validity of US uber account
Is an account created in the United States valid in London? Australia/New Zealand?
I’ve used my US account in India and the UAE so I’m pretty sure it will work in other places. Just make sure to have a no foreign transaction fee card attached for billing.
It works. But if you happen to have a SIM card in that country, it is better to update the contact number during your time there.
I learned this from a driver in India. He said he was trying to call me and could not reach me because Uber had my US number. They usually try 2-3 times and cancel the ride with the reason : “Unable to reach rider”. My 2c.
[USER=522]@PhatMiles[/USER]: That’s a good point. I’ve had that happen to me in India. I don’t change my Uber contact number even if I have a local sim but now I do proactively call the driver.

Thats what I do too. But changing the number sounded better to me to avoid hassles.
