The Cars On Demand Adelaide Airport Transfer Experience

From pickup to drop off tur chauffeur service o experience can be summed up in one word- excellence. We strive to deliver the very best service at cost-effective rates. We offer a wide range of services geared towards both business travellers and private travellers. They’re highlighted below.

Airport Transfers

Our drivers are trained on time management and customer service. When you alight from your flight you don’t have to worry about your transfer. We’ll be there waiting for you. We have a great track record.

Even though Adelaide airport is not very far from the CBD, you still want to be sure that when you book that car for 3 o’clock in the afternoon, it will be there for you rain hail or shine. This is where Cars On Demand is famous for our reliability and puntuality and please read in the section below how we have used state of the art technology to maintain this level of reliability.

Three reasons why you should pick Cars On Demand

There are several factors that will influence your decision in using our service.

But we think the 3 most important reasons are as follows:

1) Phone number masking technology

This is where we mask all local phone numbers and the link is cut off after the trip is complete, therefore drivers and customers can communicate before the trip and keep each others numbers private.

This comes in really handy when we are doing airport transfers for VIP celebrities, or high profile TV personel, or Politicians.

2) Automated fail safe mechanism built into our driver app and software

Whether you have booked an airpot transfer or a dinner transfer, our intelligent systems will prompt and remind drivers of their iminetn upcoming transfers, and if for any reason the driver does not confirm on their app that they are on the way, then the system alerts the manger on duty who will take the matter into his won hands and make sure that the driver is on the way and if we cant get in touch with the driver then we immediatelly allocate another driver to come in as a replacement.

3) Our proprietary custom built pricing algorithm

Our minimum fare is $78, however as the journey becomes longer, the per km rate starts to drop, this is why we get so many long distance trips.

In some case, once the length of the trips exceeds about 50 or 60 km, we actually become chaeper than a taxi.

So if you are visiting one of the wineries in South Australia, why suffer on a big bus, just treat yourself to a luxury transfer in one of our cars.

If you would like please click here and get a quote in three seconds, you can just type in thename of the winery if you dont know the address becasue our quoting tool and website is powered by Google maps.

The city’s elegant stone crafted buildings and regal architecture serve as a legacy to the city’s past. Adelaide has managed to blend the past with the present as it grows, preserving its rich history for posterity.
