Blog about the private hire and chauffeured transportation sector

Our 1st need was mainly to exchange information with our associated transport companies in Spain in the Spanish language (Castellano). After that came the desire to discuss interesting subjects related to private and touristic transportation services to a much broader and international audience in the English language. The content might be defined as ‘all that is of interest to the private hire transport sector’.

Our goals with our chauffeured transport and private hire blog

Simply put: we want to exchange information and learning’s about touristic transport with like minded colleagues in the coach hire and car with driver services. More into detail:

  • a)    To have a discussion and information exchange platform with like minded professionals that have an interest in the minibus and coach hire sector.
  • b)    Learn from the experience of colleagues in the chauffeur driven industry
  • c)    To give fellow transport companies and services a blog were to place guest articles. We are not looking for superficial texts here but only serious content that is bringing something interesting to our transport and tourist related readers.
  • d)    To discuss subjects directly related with the use of our transport directory, platform and our coach hire and transport comparison en booking tool.
  • e)    To have a place to place tutorials and training materials related to the use of our platform.
