The global online travel sector is dominated by OTA titans which control the lion’s share of consumer traffic and monetize the traffic with mostly standardized offerings. But in the segmented areas like ground transport, there’s still room to facilitate a frictionless travel experience.
Car-hailing giants like Didi and Uber has gained great traction in the consumer-facing market, riding on mega capital injections and fast expansion. But in the corporate segment, travel management companies and enterprises are increasingly seeking quality chauffeur service with diverse demands, much more than just a standard ride product.
Heycars, a professional chauffeured brand under the umbrella of car service supplier Guangzhou Yuexing, aims to provide its corporate clients and leisure travelers reliable ride services. The company offers airport pick-up and drop-off, car rentals and customized chauffeur offerings as part of its full-service ground transport solution for both consumers and corporate partners.
Heycars is partnering with the upcoming 2018 TravelDaily Conference and the inaugural China Digital Travel Show (TDC & CDTS), both of which are scheduled to take place on September 19-21 in Shanghai.
As the official chauffeured service provider of the 2018 TDC & CDTS, the company will provide its professional chauffeur service to the delegates attending the event. By entering the code of “traveldaily”, the delegates can have the service with a 15%-off discount during the event.
Heycars looks to address the Chinese travelers’ pain points at overseas destinations like language barrier and local know-how, take care of the international tourists’ stays in Asia Pacific by linking the air, accommodation and in-destination services with its chauffeur offerings, and build up a better end-to-end travel experience.
The first major step in serving a traveler’s journey is departure transportation including flights and railway, followed by in-destination services such as hotel accommodation and chauffeur cars. While customer conversion from air to destination transport has risen to a similar rate as conversion from air to hotels, the global ground transport market still sees great potential beyond air- or hotel-related chauffeur services.
Heycars currently has service in more than 300 cities and 160 airports in China and has expanded its overseas presence in over 50 countries and 300 cities worldwide. The company has teamed up with major travel companies including Ctrip, Fliggy, CITS American Express Global Business Travel, CWT, BCD Travel, Dongfeng Nissan, Skyscanner and Amadeus.
