Taxi network iGo has partnered with Carey, a global provider of executive transport services, to offer business travellers on-demand access to chauffeur driven cars in London.
Travel management companies (TMCs) which use the iGo network can now provide businesses and travellers with access to Carey’s premium fleet of chauffeur driven cars, which operate around London, its major business centres, as well as its private and commercial airports, the company has said.
This is in addition to the existing 100,000 taxi and private hire vehicles that are already available via the network, covering 90% of the UK.
Travel managers who wish to specify, as part of corporate travel policy, which individuals within an organisation are able to access these chauffeur-driven services, can also do so via iGo’s Corporate Accounts Portal.
Safa Alkateb, CEO of Autocab, which developed the iGo network, said: “We’re continuing to add new and different vehicle types to our iGo network, so that TMCs can offer business travellers the best experience when travelling.
“With the ongoing global pandemic, providing access to a variety of safe travel options is key – especially as employees may not always feel comfortable taking public transport.”
Greg Mendoza, Regional Vice President of Carey International, said: “Carey is excited to be part of the iGo network. We welcome the opportunity to bring our world class service and uncompromising standards to iGo users and provide a safe, reliable option for travel managers during and after the pandemic.
“We look forward to working with iGo to offer businesses further choice and travellers a luxury service.”
