Filling Vehicles Travelling To And From Airports Is Good For The Environment And Can Help People Save Money


Sharing an airport transfer not only means that the cost of your trip is reduced, it is also better for the environment as it eliminates the need for a separate road journey. But how can people connect with others who will be on the same flight as them (or one that lands around the same time)? The team at have developed a solution where people can easily search a database of journeys posted by people keen to share their transfer. If there are no existing matches, a new journey can be created and added to the database in minutes.

Vehicles are often only booked one-way, which means that the return journey is made empty. Through, these empty seats can be offered to people who are looking for reasonably priced shared transfers allowing the transfer company to earn extra revenue.

“The benefits of sharing transfers go beyond the economic and environmental,” said Dia Barrett, Managing Director of FindTransfers. “The first few hours in a foreign country can be quite daunting. Sharing your journey from the airport is a great way to meet new people and the journey can go so much quicker when you have someone to chat to.” was launched in October 2012 to help connect people looking for airport transportation with local taxi and transfer companies.
