25 Jul Holiday time is upon us: make the most of it with zoom’s technology
Everyone looks forward to a holiday in the sun and with the school holidays started the airports are busy with families jetting off.
But whilst we look forward to that week or two relaxing on the beach or by a pool, there is no doubt that getting to our final destination can be incredibly stressful: from crowded flights with cramped seats to travel sick kids. But one part of that journey can be made more simple, and that’s the taxi to and from the airport.
Research has shown that a whopping 50% of airport transfers are by taxi and minicabs can be the only means of transport for longer journeys in rural areas.
If your local cab company uses our app, you can book your transport online, have price transparency and with GPS tracking be confident your car will arrive on time and get you to the airport.
It’s great for companies, too: It means time conscious travellers can be confident in using your services to get to and from airports and can see when their car is arriving and how much the journey will cost them.
It’s also ideal for the end of a holiday: instead of waiting at a busy cab rank at arrivals, tired after a journey and disappointed the break is over, passengers can be sure they have their ride home booked and have them waiting to meet them as they leave the airport.
It means private hire companies can make full use of their vehicles and drivers, offering a price transparent, flexible service to take the stress out of getting home from holidays. And with our easy online booking your customers can arrange their collection at the end of their holiday as you drop them off to the airport.
More and more people are turning to apps to book their transport. Don’t let your company become a victim as people turn to their smart phones for solutions by signing up with zoom for our free two week trial.
But it’s not just getting too and from the airport where we can help. The weak pound has seen an increase in the number of Brits holidays on these shores, with the nations 5000 campsites seeing a boost in visitors.
With an increase of one million more campers, according to the caravan and camping club, and a rise in bookings from 34 to 46 per cent, there has been a boom in the domestic holiday market. This is on top of people staying in hotels and guest houses, many of whom not have their own transport and will rely on local minicab firms to get around.
In the absence of local knowledge they may find it easier to use an app based company like Uber they have heard of, even if it’s not something they’d choose to use when they are at home.
And that’s where zoom comes in. We can put local companies across the country just the touch of a button away from holiday makers, allowing people to support local companies but have the ease of use and technology of 21st century technology.
Just because people are away from home, there’s no need for them to abandon the compassionate capitalism of supporting local businesses which many people choose to do. Zoom can be the ‘home from home’ app for companies and holiday makers staycationing in the UK.
