Lucy always felt overwhelmed while travelling to a new place. This time, she had to travel to London for her business trip, alone. Just the thought of being alone in a different country was making her feel dizzy. She tried collecting information about various places in London to at least know the basics. But that was not enough, she had no idea how she would manage once she gets down from her flight. She was going to get down at Gatwick, London airport. She started researching about the Gatwick airport and different London airport transfers.
Lucy’s research on Gatwick
She found that Gatwick Airport is a major international airport near Crawley in West Sussex southeast England. It is the second-busiest airport in the UK after Heathrow Airport and also the eighth-busiest airport in Europe.
Gatwick was opened as the aerodrome in the late 1920s and has been in use for commercial flights from 1933. The airport has two terminals – North terminal and South terminal. The airport operates as a single-runway airport. As the figures state, it was treaded by 46.1 million passengers in the year 2018.
Thoughts about booking a private airport transfer
The first unfamiliar place that Lucy was going to encounter was the Gatwick airport. She did not wish to stand in a long queue for booking a taxi. She needed someone who would welcome her with a warm smile amidst the unknown faces. At the same time, she needed a reliable airport transfer to take her to the hotel that her company had pre-booked for her. That ticked the thought, yes, she could pre-book her private airport transfers from Gatwick too!
She searched for many airport transfer suppliers “But how can I be sure about this supplier? Every one of them looks the same”, she thought every time she found a website. Then she stumbled upon TripCenter. The first few words on the website attracted her attention- “ Book your ride across places, across cities, and across countries. Wow! This looks available worldwide”, she thought.
Lucy explores TripCenter
She wanted to be sure about the reliability of the website so she just scrolled down. She read all about the point-to-point transports, assured and reliable pickup and quality service, availability of options and most importantly “they provide payment protection!”, she was impressed.
A little scroll showed her that she was offered everything from chauffeured services and luxury cars to coaches, limos, SUV’s, minibuses, and even economy cars. She was happy about having so many choices which she thought she never had in life for anything! She also saw the popular cities where these services were available.
“Oh! It’s there in London!”, she exclaimed. Quickly, she entered the pick-up and drop-off place, her date of journey and the time when her flight would arrive in London. Within a fraction of seconds, she saw an entire page full of listings from many of the suppliers in London for her London airport transfers. She was amazed to see the various vehicles, each with its description clearly written and with the price mentioned.
Questions and Clarifications
A series of other questions that were entering Lucy’s mind now was, “Will they ask me any more money when I reach London? What will happen if the car doesn’t arrive to pick me up? Will they charge me even if I am unable to reach there on time because of my flight delay? What if I don’t get the desired service?”
“Breathe!”, she calmed herself. “I can find out the clear answers to these questions right here in the website. Look, they have an FAQ section right on the top. Let me check.”, she opened the FAQ section and scrolled once. “What! How did they know my exact questions!”, she was really surprised to see each little doubt which was haunting her had its clarification right in front of her.
She went through each FAQ and as she advanced to the next questions, she noticed her nerves slowly getting calmed as if she was getting familiar with TripCenter’s processes and it was not just a website but some person that she became friends with just now!
After reading the last question, she was quite satisfied with everything and felt like she found her travel partner. She clicked on the sign-up button and opened her account. She booked her first London airport transfer right on the TripCenter platform.
London Arrival and travel booking friend for life
On the day of her travel, Lucy was still stiff about the new place. When the flight arrived at the Gatwick airport, Lucy had a very warm and friendly chauffeur to welcome her and help her with her luggage. Her experience with the service was amazing. After reaching safely at her hotel, she decided to book chauffeur service again for multi-day hire until her stay in London.
The day of departure arrived. She was greatly surprised by the awesome services provided by TripCenter. On her way back home, in the flight, she thought “I really have found my travel booking friend for life.”
