How TappAXI's PortBag Feature Makes Your UK Airport Transfer Easier and Safer

How TappAXI’s PortBag Feature Makes Your UK Airport Transfer Easier and Safer

I know you are wondering what the Portbag feature from TappAXI is.

Have you ever experienced the frustration of waiting in long queues at the airport, or the anxiety of your luggage missing?

If you had already ordered a taxi, that adds to the confusion and frustration.

That’s why we at TappAXI, a dedicated UK airport transfer and taxi services company, have created a solution to make your airport journey more enjoyable and convenient.

We call it PortBag, our remarkable feature that connects you with your driver and lets you inform them when you’re ready to be picked up.

In this blog post, we’ll explain what PortBag is and how it works, why we created it, what benefits it brings to you and our drivers, and how it compares to other options available.

Why We Created the PortBag Feature

We created PortBag because we care about your travel experience, and we want to make it as smooth and stress-free as possible. Having travelled ourselves before, we’ve experienced long queues, lost luggage and had to pay more for the wait time.

We realized that these pain points affect not only our customers, but also our drivers, who have to deal with traffic, parking, and communication issues.

That’s why we came up with PortBag, a feature that simplifies everything and makes your airport transfer easier and smoother.

How PortBag Benefits You

PortBag is a feature that allows you to communicate with your driver via our app or website, and let them know when you’ve passed passport control and collected your luggage.

This has a number of benefits including:

  • The driver who is already at the terminal will only come inside to pick you up after receiving your confirmation.
  • Once you’ve alerted your driver, you can inform your family and friends that you are boarding the taxi in a few.
  • This feature helps you avoid the stress and anxiety of waiting fror the taxi driver. This is because you will be in communication with the driver once you pass the passport control and pick your luggage.

To book your airport transfer with TappAXI and enjoy the PortBag feature, all you have to do is download our app, and enter your flight details and destination.

You can also choose from a range of vehicles and payment options, depending on your preferences and budget.

Conclusion

To sum up, PortBag is a feature that connects you with your driver and lets you inform them when you’re ready to be picked up. We created PortBag to make your airport transfer easier and safer, by saving you time, avoiding stress, and ensuring any delays at the airport do not lead to extra charges.

PortBag also benefits our drivers, who can provide you with a better service and a smoother ride. This is a pilot feature since no other taxi company offer a similar option.

If you want to experience the difference that PortBag can make for your UK airport transfer, don’t hesitate to book your ride with TappAXI today.
