Launch of the new pre-bookable ground transfer solution also enables agents to boost revenues and enhance customer satisfaction
Vilvoorde, March 7, 2018: Leisure and business travellers value simplicity and productivity: they are looking for a one-stop shop when it comes to trip planning, shopping and booking. That’s why an increasing number of travel professionals are seeking to extend their service offering to cover the first and last miles of their customer’s itinerary. But while ground transfer content has been available for some time, the process has often been manual, slow, and lacking integration with other services that go into creating the perfect trip.
Amadeus Transfers allows you to provide the value-adding information and services travellers need to make their journey less stressful. Amadeus Transfers is a multi-provider solution covering more than 1000 destinations in 142 markets.
We are proud that for the Benelux we offer a good range of ground transfer partners including Blacklane, Talixo, TaxiTender, Holiday Taxis, World Airport Transfer and Sixtmydriver. With additional content providers set to be added over the coming months. The solution is available across desktop, mobile and Web Service applications and is automatically integrated in your Amadeus ecosystem. This provides all Benelux travel agents on Amadeus Selling Platform instant access to numerous transfer providers, be able to compare rates & book.
Ground transfers are in demand as part of the overall opportunity for pre-booked ground transportation. So offering assistance in making ground transfer arrangements presents a source of new revenues for many travel agents who are eager to tap into this lucrative and fast-growing market.
