Uber

has unveiled many new goods and features for

business travellers, wedding groups,

and others in an effort to make it more convenient for users. 

Uber Travel,

the firm's latest function, allows users to book trips for each leg of their journey in one go, according to the company. In a blogpost, Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi, said, "Just connect your Gmail account and we'll do the rest, organising your hotel, flight, and restaurant reservations all in one place for a stress-free travel experience." The service is already available in the United States and will be available in Canada in the coming weeks.

Uber Charter,

is another tool that allows users to book a party bus, passenger van, coach bus, and other types of transportation directly from the Uber app. The firm also claimed that its new 'Vouchers for Events' made it simple to cover the cost of guest rides, adding a personal touch that makes everyone feel like a VIP.

The company said, "Simply enter your event details, the maximum amount that you want to cover, and share your unique code with your guests. Guests will determine their own pickup and dropoff at a time and location that works best for them, and you will avoid overpaying for unused seats."
