Reservations are subject to a commission, which should be incorporated into your pricing when creating your offers. Remember, all prices and rates displayed on our website are for an offered service, and must include all taxes (VAT), discounted offers and our commission. The price will include no additional fees after the booking process is complete. The client pays only once. An invoice summary and/or a voucher will be sent to your company that has published the offer, and to the client who has booked a service through our system.
Reservations are made starting two weeks in advance for over 15 passengers using bus/coach/group services; 48 hrs. in advance for less than 15 passengers booking Private and Shared services to ensure that we have enough time to process the clients’ requests.
Using our system’s easy process, client(s) select their destination(s), service(s) and the shuttle company that will insure their transfer(s) to their destination(s). When booking on our system, the client(s) will automatically receive an invoice with a summary of the reservation and the amount paid.
A unique Booking Reference is assigned to each of the reservations made on our system. The data entered is sent to S.B.I., and then is redirected to the company that has published the offer and that is in charge of handling the reservation and transportation service. A summary of the reservation will be displayed in the company’s business account. You will also receive an e-mail confirmation regarding all new reservations. We keep a record of reservations made on our website in order to satisfy our clients’ expectations regarding their transfers, and for any other purpose we deem necessary.
After the booking process, the client will print the Transfer Voucher to present to the local representative, or your driver. You will find pertinent information at the top of the booking confirmation, such the “Booking reference — Supplier ID — Route ID — Transfer Confirmation Code”. Clients can also present an e-mail confirmation to the the local representative or the driver in charge of the transfer by using a Smartphone or tablet.
Drivers are reminded to always collect the booking confirmation or transfer voucher, which is required for you to confirm the transfers you have provided. We use the preceding methods in order to guarantee our users interests, and ensure that we have provided and completed the clients’ requests and fulfilled our obligations
Your company will be in charge of collecting clients from their pick-up or drop-off location. Do your best to be on time without compromising your task, or the passengers’ or driver’s security and safety.

We claim no responsibility in regards to flights/trains/ships or any other type of transfer not being provided or cancelled for reasons that are beyond our control. We welcome all feedbacks in regards with incidents that might occur with clients or any other information you thing important, we will do our best to assist you in anyway.
