Here’s what you get

10 Hours Free Childcare

Bubble lets you book incredible local childcare on-demand, and you’ll get 10 hours of this paid for by Uber.

Complimentary Bubble Plus

This is Bubble’s premium subscription service. It means you pay zero booking fees on all your sits on the platform, saving you more money.

Access to Holiday Clubs

You can use your free 10 care hours on holiday clubs. Your child can have a full day of fun in a holiday club and you only use 4 hours of your allowance to cover it.

Why Uber are working with Bubble

“We’re giving a thousand drivers 10 hours of free childcare, which is really important because the whole point of being an Uber driver is that you’ve got total freedom to work when and where you like.

A lot of drivers do have childcare responsibilities and this allows drivers to go out at times when perhaps they wouldn’t be able to go.

I’m really delighted to be trialling this with the Bubble team”

Andrew Brem, General Manager, Uber UK

What parents are saying about Bubble

“Bubble has been great for us, mostly used it to find people for regular sits. Super easy to use, feels completely trustworthy and safe. Everyone I have met via Bubble has been a great sitter”

Julia

Intuitive app and success finding babysitters. We have been using the Bubble app for several months and have found it very easy to use, and with lots of babysitters. The review and verification system is very good. It is a regular ‘go-to’ for us.
