Best Practice for Transfer Companies
To ensure that transfer companies listed on Jayride.com are providing a consistent, comfortable and five-star experience for customers, we ask that you meet the following requirements:
Respond to customers
Customers often require confirmation and peace of mind when booking something as important and time-sensitive as an airport transfer. Responding in a timely manner to customer queries is paramount to providing an excellent, considerate service. We ask transfer companies to respond to messages as quickly as possible to ensure a seamless experience for travellers.
Accept Confirmed Bookings
We send you bookings based on the information you provide to us. To ensure that you don't receive a booking that you feel you cannot complete, make sure your pricing, coverage and availability is updated with Jayride.com at all times. We ask that if you receive a booking, you complete it regardless. You can notify us of your availability to prevent receiving bookings at times when you are unavailable – this way you’re more likely to receive bookings that you can complete.
Avoid cancelling on customers
Unless there are extreme extenuating circumstances, we ask that you do everything you can do avoid cancelling a confirmed booking. It causes unnecessary stress for customers, who are left to find alternative arrangements – often last minute. If you do cancel a confirmed booking, you may be subject to Jayride.com agency fees, trust in your brand diminishes and your reliability score will suffer. To be regarded as a reliable transfer company, please ensure you avoid cancelling confirmed bookings.
Garner positive reviews
Everyone wants a positive, seamless experience, especially when it comes to transfers. After each bookings, we ask customers to review their experience with you. The more positive reviews you get, the more likely you'll be seen as a trusted and reliable business.
Transfer companies who get great reviews tend to focus on eight key elements: Punctuality, reliability, proactive clear communication, meeting the travellers expectations, accurate vehicle pictures, clean and tidy vehicles, a timely pick up and smooth drive. By ensuring these eight key metrics are met, you are more likely to get great reviews from customers who love your service!
Your overall rating is your average review score from all the travellers you’ve serviced, which is then listed on Jayride.com so that customers can make informed choices.
By providing clear, descriptive, honest and accurate listing details, customers can make an informed choice when booking your services. Good quality photos and need-to-know information – like whether you offer meet and greets, are imperative to help meet your customers expectations so they know exactly what kind of services you offer. This will help match customers with a transfer company that suits their needs.
