Corporate travel is a growing industry that many modern day businesses are taking advantage of. A corporate taxi account has a lot of great benefits that can work around your needs. Using taxis frequently without having an account can drive up costs by quite a bit, so opening a corporate taxi account can save you a lot of time and money.

 

Lewis Taxis offers a corporate taxi service and has been helping clients in the West Midlands and beyond for over fifty years. Here are some of the benefits of opening up a corporate taxi account for your business today.


How Does Corporate Travel Work?


If you travel around the UK frequently for work, such as heading to meetings around the country or getting to the airport, corporate travel services can improve the process immensely. You can book a taxi with ease using your corporate account, allowing you access to a reliable driver and service every single time. This taxi might be for you, or you may need it to pick up/drop off visitors or VIPs.

 

A corporate account works by setting up the account and then you can organise, pay and manage trips with just a few clicks of a button. Here are a few of the reasons why you need a corporate taxi account.


Cashless


As you can pre-book and pay for taxis, you never have to worry about paying with cash ever again, saving you the hassle of carrying around a bunch of cash every time. Clients will be impressed when you can simply jump out of the taxi without going through the process of payment. This also speeds everything up, as you don’t have to waste time finding the correct amount of money and waiting for change, ideal if you’re running late or just want travel to be more streamlined.


Drivers & Vehicles


If you’re just working with a single taxi company, you can expect to get the same drivers every time. Some services can even let you pick specific drivers if you get on well with them and are impressed by their driving. If using the same driver regularly, you can start to build a relationship with them. This can make rides more efficient, as you and your driver can find the best routes to get you to your destination as they

 

You can also request specific vehicles. You might want something cheap and cheerful for taking you between meetings, or more of a luxury experience for picking up a client at the airport. Along with a choice in vehicles, you can expect them to be clean and comfortable every single time.


No Driving


Let’s face it, one of the biggest benefits of taking a taxi is not having to drive yourself. Whether you’re a nervous driver or would rather just relax, a taxi is a great option. If you’re on the way to work or a meeting, being in a taxi can allow you to catch up on any work you might need to do while relaxing in a comfortable vehicle. Some will even have mobile offices in the back where you can review files or use your laptop with ease.


Prices


As valued customers, you may be entitled to discounts or special promotions on the price of your trips. Companies like to reward those who make the most of their services, so you could expect money off rides or cheaper rides the more you use a corporate travel account. You could get a discount for making a lot of discounts at once or far in advance.

 

You can also expect all your billing in one place, which will be a lot easier for your accounts manager. Instead of having to repay a bunch of rebates for workers using taxis for work, they can order using the corporate taxi account, eliminating the need for your business to pay them back the cost of travel. By having access to the pickup and drop-off information, an accounts manager can ensure that nobody is using the taxi service for personal use and can easily monitor the expenses of the company.


Versatile


A corporate taxi account can be used for a vast range of things. The most basic is ferrying people from A to B, but this can be broken down even more. You could be meeting a customer to talk business, picking up a client, going to the airport or visiting another facility. You can also use a taxi service to transport parcels or other important documents that you don’t trust to post. Putting these documents in a taxi will also get them there a lot faster than waiting for the mail, even with express delivery.


Safe


In recent years there has been a rise in unauthorised taxis or taxis attempting to scam customers. With a trusted corporate account, you know that all the drivers and vehicles used are fully authorised and safe to use. Any issues with a driver attempting to scam you can be easily traced back and dealt with, though the chances of this happening are very slim when working with a reputable company.


Priority Service


As a customer with an account linked to a firm, you’ll be getting a priority service, allowing you access to bookings at peak times when they might be too busy to accommodate regular customers. This is especially useful if you are in a rush to pick up a client or get to the airport to catch a flight. You’ll also get access to 24/7 support, whether it be with a customer service team or an online portal. This means you can easily amend your bookings quickly without having to jump through a load of hoops.


Used By All


A corporate travel account can be for one person or shared throughout a whole company. Allowing all your employees access will enable them to make the most of travel, not having to worry about spending their own money when needing to travel for work. This will increase the morale and productivity of workers.


No Parking Worries


By using a taxi service, you won’t have to worry about driving yourself. One of the many pains of driving yourself for work is never knowing where you can park, especially if your work frequently takes you to new cities or towns you’ve never been to before. By being driven there, you never have to worry about parking, simply being dropped off wherever you need to go.


Reduced Fuel Usage


As you won’t be driving yourself, you’ll be saving a ton of money by not having to purchase fuel constantly. You’ll also be helping the environment by using less fuel if you are using the taxi service to carry a few employees between destinations at once, instead of them each taking a separate car.
