London Heathrow Airport has partnered with comparison site minicabit to enable passengers to look up and compare mini-cab prices using its website and smartphone app. Travelers can pre-book trips and compare the prices of hundreds of licensed mini-cab firms operating throughout the UK.
Chris Annetts, director of commercial passenger services for London Heathrow, said, “Heathrow is always seeking out new, innovative ways for its business and leisure travelers to easily access a mix of suitable ground transport options. Our partnership with minicabit has enabled us to easily integrate its single, UK-wide platform to service the ‘last mile’ of our visitors’ trips by minicab. We particularly look forward to extending this service with them into areas such as our Heathrow Rewards loyalty program and new mobile innovations.”
Amer Hasan, CEO for minicabit, said, “This partnership with Heathrow enhances the airport’s web and mobile offering from the passenger’s door to the airport gate. Given the longest minicab trip booked with us, so far, is from Newcastle to Heathrow, customers clearly see the benefits of minicabit’s UK-wide reach.”
