Estonian Air is the first airline to provide access on its website to the services of Cabforce.com, the European online booking service for taxis, executive cars and minibuses. Estonian Air passengers can now make the bookings at the same time as their flight tickets.
The Cabforce.com online booking system offers a car with fixed price, and customers pay on a secure site with a credit card. By making an advance booking, passengers no longer need to negotiate with local drivers about routes, prices and payment methods at the travel destination. The most common causes of confusion due to culture and language barriers can now be avoided.
“Partnership with Cabforce.com gives our customers a convenient access to transfer service via Estonian Air homepage. The service is currently available in Tallinn and at eight Estonian Air flight destinations in Europe: Helsinki, St. Petersburg, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Amsterdam, London, Brussels and Paris. More destinations will be added in the future,” said Enn Lamp, the Head of Sales and Distribution Department.
“We are happy to be the first airline in the world to provide public access to the Cabforce.com service for all our passengers. It is ideal for business travellers who wish to pre-pay for transfer between the airport and hotel with their company credit card for easy expense management,” added Lamp.
The Estonian Air partnership marks a new territory claim for Cabforce.com, which is expected to grow in the future with similar partnerships. “Co-operation with the Estonian national airline is a prime example of how a taxi service can be added to a partner’s service portfolio, without the need for them to invest in any supply network building and facilitation technology,” says Tommi Holmgren, CEO and Co-founder of Cabforce.com.
