    Do Uber charge extra for taking suitcases (like the average taxi does) and do UberXL take 26inch bikes?

    Cool. I think luggage will be free but doubt they'd be keen to take a bike. In Holland there's a type of Uber that has a bike rack but I doubt the UK will ever be so cycle friendly. Good luck!

    ​Reply was:
    No charge for luggage, with regards to bike, order UberXL and then contact driver to confirm whether they can take a bike. If they can't, cancel within 5mins of ordering and there's no cancellation fee.

    They dont charge extra.. in my experience anyway.
    Got an Uber XL few months back, from central london to heathrow about £43 with 6 massive 25kg suitcases and 5 people.

    Never heard of any taxi charging for luggage is this normal in some places?

    Was also wondering that. Never come across a taxi which charged for luggage. Maybe the drive just felt like make extra on you OP.
