Good news for American travelers who are going to enjoy summer vacations in Europe. Uber, the popular ride-hailing app, is making a significant expansion across numerous captivating vacation spots in Greece, Italy, France, Spain and Croatia. This move comes as a response to the surging demand from travelers, as the company prepares for an impressive surge in visits from American tourists to Europe during the upcoming summer season.

Riders across the globe depend on Uber to embark on new journeys, the company says.
