HELSINKI and LONDON, February 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
- The cure for business travelers' taxi agony makes its first international appearance at the London Business Travel Show 2012.
Cabforce.com, the European online service for taxi and private car booking, makes its first international appearance at the London Business Travel Show 2012 to announce it will cover over 40 cities by the end of this year.
Similar to hotel and flight aggregation sites, the Cabforce.com search engine finds local cab, executive car and minibus providers and delivers a fully inclusive fixed price, which is paid on a secure site with a credit card. Today, customers can already use Cabforce in top 10 cities such as London, St Petersburg, Madrid and Brussels.
Cabforce.com guarantees its customers a reliable transport service, with e-mail and SMS confirmations and electronic receipts. This helps travelers and corporate travel managers to conveniently book a trusted cab in an unfamiliar city.
"I think anyone traveling regularly knows how it feels waiting in the airport taxi line or being tired from the day's journey. By booking in advance, it can be avoided. With us, the car waits for you when you arrive, not the other way around."
"Traditionally, making a taxi payment can be a pain. Drivers usually demand cash, and bickering over how to pay is a hassle - particularly when dealing with dodgy looking cash receipts without indication of tax or currency" explains Tommi Holmgren, CEO and Co-founder of Cabforce.com.
The service is available online at
and as a part of Travel Management Companies offerings.
Mobile applications for iPhone, Android & Windows Mobile are soon to follow.
