Making the most of your long weekend staycation

Left your long weekend plans to the last minute? Never fear, Uber Carshare is here to show you how to have an amazing long weekend on a tight budget.

Jessica Pilon-Summons

Are you feeling the FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) as the long weekend approaches and you haven't made any plans?

Don't worry, you're not alone.

Many Aussies are feeling the pinch of cost-of-living pressures and are struggling to justify splurging on a holiday, even for a long weekend. But fear not, because we’ve partnered with 3 influencers to show you how to have an amazing long weekend on a tight budget.

Aimee Massie

Aimee's day took an unexpected turn when her car broke down right before a planned outing with friends. But thanks to her Fairy Car Mother, who came to the rescue with Uber Carshare, Aimee could salvage the day without breaking her budget. She picked up her friends, enjoyed a delightful brunch, soaked up the sun at the beach, played sports, pampered herself at a spa, squeezed in some shopping, and even caught a movie.

Queenie Tan

Queenie takes us on a budget-friendly weekend adventure in Sydney, exploring her favourite spots with her partner with a budget of just $50. They start at the Fish Markets, play a $3 round of pool, indulge in dessert at Ibrahim's Pastry, and end the day with a visit to the Australian Meat Emporium to pick up lamb koftas for dinner.

Tim Collins

Tim decided to take a last-minute day trip with his sister from Perth to Cervantes. They got to see the Pinnacles, grab lunch at the Lobster Shack, and enjoy the afternoon at the beach.
