Netherlands-based Taxi Tender will soon provide global access to pre-arranged discount airport taxis through Amadeus booking solutions. The partnership allows travellers to book airport taxis in advance when they are booking their trips through travel agents, on airline websites, or on airport websites.
Taxi Tender (also known as Cheap Taxis / Your Airport Transfer) is the only company in the Netherlands that offers worldwide airport taxis. Their service is available at over 5,000 airports, train stations, harbours and other service locations spanning Europe, North America, Africa and Asia.
Taxi Tender’s proprietary system for price comparison calculates the average taxi fare per route to and from the airport when booking a trip. The ride will then be auctioned among local taxi and transfer companies. By doing so, the traveller is guaranteed a favourable fixed price before they even leave their home.
Peter Altmann, Head of Amadeus Cars & Transfers at Amadeus, said: “After a thorough selection process, we opted for Taxi Tender to become one of our providers. Now we can jointly provide all players in the travel industry – worldwide and across all channels – a comprehensive and transparent service offering. In this way, we help them to offer a full and smooth travel experience that encompasses every aspect of the customer journey.”
Ojo Meijers, Chief Executive, Taxi Tender, added: “I am extremely proud that Amadeus has selected Taxi Tender. Through this collaboration, we are able to integrate our services with more partners in the travel industry, allowing even more travellers around the world to book their taxi though our system. This helps us with the further international rollout of our service and contributes to the strengthening of our position in the growing market for pre-booked taxis.”
