Good Travel Management team up with one of the UK’s leading ground transportation suppliers

Good Travel Management team up with one of the UK’s leading ground transportation suppliers

 

Planning a business trip usually involves at very least, booking a hotel or flight. The one service that can often be missed out of the planning (if you haven't got a good Travel Management Company on board to book your business travel requirements)  is a pre-booked taxi transfer. Cue, a headache!

When travelling on business, time is usually of the essence. Poor transfer arrangements can result in missed flights or late arrival to that all-important meeting, reflecting badly on the company the traveller is representing and even a cost implication if flights are missed.  

Most airports have numerous taxi providers waiting to get you to your requested destination but an on the spot decision is also a game of chance when you don’t know the reputation of the company. The pressure of making an instant decision can result in a highly priced journey, as many taxi ranks overcharge for their service. Whilst you may be confident in your negotiation skills, you will nearly always end up paying over the odds, compared to pre-booking in advance of travel.

If this situation sounds all too familiar, maybe it is time to pre-book your taxi transfer through your chosen business travel agency...

Here at Good Travel Management, we have teamed up with Cabfind, one of the UK’s main suppliers of ground transportation, offering a wide range of fleet options, from Standard Saloon cars to executive cars, to wheelchair accessible transportation. Not only will your taxi transfer be waiting for you at your desired location, all transfers are prepaid meaning no more pockets stuffed full of taxi receipts or tricky expenses claim forms to fill in back at the office!

For further information on how a travel management company can provide the full service you require including transfers, please contact your account manager or support team.
