Here at Intransfer we get our work via many different channels.
We work for travel agencies and tour operators. They include the airport transfers in the holiday package that is sold to their clients. It is hard to tell at what price the airport transfers are sold; all we know is the price that we are selling it to the travel agencies.
We work for other car service companies in Florence or from other Italian cities. Sometimes car service companies in Florence have more work booked than what they can actually do with their own vehicles. It is a normal business practice to have a small network of car services cooperating with each other. In other cases car services from other Italian cities try to establish their presence in Florence and we act as their local suppliers. All the car service companies that we cooperate with are very reliable and serious about their work; knowing the car service business well we are always sure that all details are correct and covered.
Sometimes we are called by hotel concierges and owners of apartments for rental. We do not have any particular contract with them, so, requests from hotels don’t happen too often as they already have their own car service suppliers and call us only for emergencies.
We also get customers referred to us by satisfied clients that we have had in the past. We love “word of mouth” referrals because to us it means that we did a good job and that makes us proud.
We also get customers through requests made on our website. Nowadays more and more people organize their holiday and travel needs by themselves and the internet is the perfect place to shop around and find the best deals or the kind of car service that you are really looking for. Here at Intransfer we specialize in airport transfers to and from Bologna and Pisa airports where the destination or departure point is Florence or the surrounding area. We believe that Florence to Pisa at € 140 and Florence to Bologna at € 160 for an economy minivan and an experienced English-speaking driver are very competitive prices (try comparing them to others on Mozio.com). By the way, an economy minivan is not an uncomfortable minivan, it’s just not the latest Mercedes V-Class. However in many cases an economy minivan will be upgraded by us to a luxury minivan at no extra cost for our customers. In the case the customers book a luxury minivan that will never be downgraded to economy.
In Florence Uber has been operating for a while and some drivers had joined them during the winter months. Then, in the spring, when the tourist season started, very few of them kept switching on the app because they had more lucrative jobs driving people around for sightseeing and excursions. We think that for short last minute rides around the city the best option is still to call a taxi.
We are thinking about starting to work for large airport transfers portals such as Talixo or Blacklane but right now we prefer concentrating on getting more direct customers to our website. So, if you are reading this and need a private transfer supplied by a professional car service in Florence don’t hesitate to contact us, we will be happy to hear from you.
