Getting to and from the airport is an essential part of every business trip, but it’s also a pain. There’s booking, queuing, cash, receipts and expense processing involved, which all consumes valuable time. And for travel managers, the whole airport transfer question is tricky as there’s unmanaged spend involved, as well as the increasingly important duty of care question.
To simplify the whole airport transfer process Serko has partnered with GPU Chauffeurs in Australia and Air New Zealand taxis in New Zealand. Now, Serko Online users can book all of their transfer requirements at the same time as booking their hotel and flights, and have every aspect of their travel managed through Serko Online. With the addition of this transfer capability Serko Online becomes a true ‘door to door’ booking solution for business travellers.
Because Serko Online knows where travellers need to be and when they need to be there, it can automatically present users with pricing for every leg of the journey. And with multiple suppliers quoting on every trip, travel bookers can be confident that they are getting the best price, so there’s no reason not to book. After all, everyone has to get to the airport somehow.
Due to recent regulatory changes in New South Wales, we can now offer Serko Online users, GPU Ride. The GPU Ride service offers pre-booked and pre-paid transfers to Sydney Airport from Sydney CBD for just $35 (compared with an average of $47 in a licensed taxi). GPU Ride will be rolled out nationwide over the next few months as other states align their regulations with NSW.
