Tristar Worldwide launches new booking app
Tristar Worldwide has launched an app that allows its customers to make bookings and manage UK journeys via iPhone or iPad.
The booking app includes automatic flight and address verification to enable fast and accurate reservations, and it combines Tristar’s knowledge of traffic patterns with the amount of time the customer requires at the airport to calculate pick-up times, taking the guesswork out of journey planning.
When the chauffeur arrives, a push notification and SMS is sent with vehicle details and a contact number for the chauffeur, which can be dialled directly from the app. A full history of all bookings, whether made on the app, online or through Tristar’s contact centre, helps customers manage both their diaries and their budgets, and saves on the paperwork.
Tristar Worldwide CEO Dean De Beer said: “The Tristar app uses the latest technology to provide our clients with an informed travel experience at every touch point from booking to invoicing, 24 hours a day.” Designed for iOS7 and compatible with iOS6, the Tristar app is available free from the App store or via www.tristarworldwide.com/app.
Travel research company PhoCusWright predicts that one in five of all online travel bookings in Europe will be made via a mobile device by 2015. The Tristar app is currently only available for journeys in the UK, but additional destinations will be added throughout the year.
