    Hi I have 2 questions.
    (1)If flying in to airport do you request ride in advance or when ready at airport?
    (2) There will be 2 couples, do I request Uber XL?

    Thanks in advance.

    You request once you arrive and head to the Uber drop off/pick up location. As soon as you request a ride you can expect an accepted driver within seconds with the type of vehicle and the drivers name plus license plate. They also will most likely call you or text you immediately to let you know where they are, etc.

    Uber XL might be best depending on your luggage. If you are traveling with just a few bags they should fit in the trunk of a regular Uber vehicle as they all have to have 4 doors and a trunk. One can ride passenger with the other 3 in the back but it will probably be a bit crammed. XL probably the same but you'll get a little more backseat room. Depending on how far the ride is from the airport to where you're saying you may be able to get by with the standard Uber request.

    Not sure what you mean by "XL probably the same"? Uber XL vehicles are either SUVs or minivans and are required to seat at least 6 passengers...

    are you sure they have to seat 6?
    last time I ordered the cheap Uber (not uber xl) and a rav 4 showed up.. with just 5 seats including the drier.. he said he is licensed to do uber xl but you do not get many fares that way so he does the basic uber most of the time

    to the OP xl is slightly more money.. the difference will only be a few bucks if your on the strip though so I would go for it especially if you have a decent amount of luggage

    I guess the guy was messing with me then.. unless he had seats folded down in the back that I missed

    Thanks for all the info. It will be 4 of us with carry on luggage so I think regular Uber will work.
