I know it’s less expensive than flying, but I absolutely hate driving more than two hours anywhere. Blame it on a rollover car accident I had where I had to be helicoptered to a hospital afterward, but I know firsthand the dangers of long car rides, especially if you’re road tripping with friends and can get distracted by loud music, on-the-road snacking and rowdy conversations.
They’re currently running a promotion that will take up to four people to the beachy city out West, where you’ll stay for two nights at the W San Diego in a room with two double beds, as well as score breakfast each day at Kelvin Restaurant, plus get a W rooftop private cabana and bottle of liquor, and VIP access to a downtown San Diego club of your choice.
The package, valued at up to $1,850 if you were to travel by plane, costs $1,400 through Uber, or $350 per person when four people go. One of the cool things about the ride to SD is you can drink in the SUV and get the party started the minute you depart. Compare that to pricey flight cocktails, and that might make the ride worth it in itself.
You can book Uber San Diego rides this Friday, May 9 and Saturday, May 10, or Friday, May 23 and Saturday, May 24. For more info, go here.
