Everybody loves the holiday season, right? But let’s be real – while this time of year is festive,  it’s also the start of what can be a pretty stressful season. Work demands, family drama and social obligations always seem to rev up around the end of year and continue at full throttle through the new year. 

Manage the mania and have a relaxing and fun holiday season by using our Uber Eats holiday hacks.

Feed your cravings at any time

Whether you’ve shopped till you dropped, are pulling an all-night gift wrapping session, or have lost track of time thanks to spending hours on a call with an overseas-based loved one, Uber Eats will take care of that late dinner or early breakfast thanks to its extended operating hours. Uber Eats also has 24/7 in-app service, so you’re never left without an answer.

Every day can be Braai Day

It doesn't matter if you want to make the most of a hot December day or if you’ve been forced into making alternative lunch/dinner plans thanks to load shedding – whatever the reason for the braai, Uber Eats can help you pull off a great one. No firelighters or charcoal and the shops are closed? No problem. Uber Eats partners with retail stores such as Frankie Fenner Meat Merchants in  Cape Town, meaning you can get all the necessary supplies via the Uber Eats app. And if you’re tasked with cooking the main dish, get someone else to take care of a few sides or your drinks by ordering it via the app. *(Only served to over 18s). 

Bonang has nothing on you this New Year’s Eve

Whether you require some special additions to your New Year’s Eve party or another special event, Uber Eats will have you covered. If you’re feeling fancy and want to get oysters delivered, you can use the app to order from partners like The Knysna Oysters Co, which offers Cape Town residents this delicacy all year long.It can be tricky when your guests have certain food allergies, but there’s no need to fret – Uber Eats has introduced filters for allergies, meaning that your guests have one less surprise to worry about. 

Cool down and prevent meltdowns 

If you’re one of those people for whom it’s not the holidays without at least three kinds of desserts, save yourself oven space and a hectic holiday morning by ordering a few of the desserts from your favourite local spot. You can make a game out of letting people guess which one is homemade – or just pretend they all are.You’ll also need more than the kid’s channels of satellite TV, Netflix and YouTube streaming capabilities if you want to keep the kids from revolting during the holidays. Feed their sugar cravings by ordering in delicacies like ice-cream sandwiches in some of the best-loved flavours. No matter how you plan on spending your summer months, Uber Eats has you covered!

Uber Eats caters to the needs of the health- and fitness-conscious

The holidays just wouldn’t feel right without indulging, but at a certain point your taste buds can start craving something a little lighter than the typical holiday fare. Get back on track with Uber Eats. Along with Vitality HealthyDining, you’ll get rewarded for healthy eating by getting 25% cashback on your healthier meal choices and 50% cashback on Vitality kids’ healthy meals (with selected restaurants, when ordering through Uber Eats). Making healthier choices has never been easier!
