Picture this scenario. A couple is flying from Toronto to Miami tomorrow. Not keen on ridesharing, they prefer a chauffeur-driven car from the airport to the hotel. The next day, they’ve requested a private jet to whisk them off on a Key West getaway. Once in paradise, they’ll need a dedicated driver for a full day of sightseeing. As their trusted travel professional, they’re counting on you to arrange everything, so they don’t have to.

Sound complicated? Or maybe you’re thinking, “My time is money. My client has a budget! Is this really worth the effort I must put in?” Thankfully, you and your travelers’ affordable ground transportation options have just multiplied exponentially with Amadeus Transfers, a service that’s newly launching in the US and Canada today.

More options, peace of mind

Over the past decade, the rise in peer-to-peer ridesharing has completely disrupted traditional ground transportation models like taxis and shuttles. Although ridesharing offers viable and cost-effective options, many business and leisure travelers shy away for safety, security and other reasons. In fact, research shows that travelers say one of the most stressful parts of trip planning is choosing the right ground transportation option at destination.

As part of our commitment to support all travel players in the Live Travel Space, Amadeus Transfers provides access to more than 5,000 providers around the world, offering an extensive array of options including chauffeur-driven taxis, limos, shuttles, private jets – and even boats and ferries coming soon! Thanks to Amadeus’ rate parity commitment, we honor the same rates and conditions you’ve already negotiated with other providers.
