Rental Vehicles or Corporate Shuttles? Here is the Answer
If you are responsible for organising an event where a number of employees or delegates have to meet at various destinations, the first thought may be to organise rental vehicles. The reason many corporates choose rental vehicles for their delegates is because it supposedly gives them more freedom of movement and independence when it comes to travel, and there may be a perception that a shuttle may not be able to offer the same service. This could not be further from the truth! There are many reasons why you should choose corporate shuttles over rental vehicles for your delegates, and these include the following:
- Convenience: No matter where your delegates come from – whether they arrive by bus, train or plane – getting corporate shuttles to meet them at the arrival point and drop them at the destination just makes sense. Often, guests do not know the destination city, especially if they are in Gauteng, and negotiating strange routes (even with a GPS) in a rental vehicle can be challenging. They are unlikely to know which routes are best to take and likely to encounter heavy traffic or get lost. If you choose to use a shuttle service, your delegates will be driven by an experienced driver who knows the best routes to take and where all the traffic bottlenecks occur during different times of day or night.
- Safety: An individual in a rental vehicle is not as safe as a number of delegates in the same vehicle, driven by a driver with safety training. Hijackings are not uncommon in Gauteng, and because shuttle drivers are highly trained in advanced driving practices and versed in safety and security protocol on the road, they are less likely to fall victim to these types of crime.
- No breakdowns: At Pogiso’s Tours, we ensure that our fleet is modern, clean, comfortable, well maintained and serviced to the highest standard. This means that you are very unlikely to experience a breakdown while travelling – and even in the highly unlikely event that you do, we will arrange another vehicle to collect delegates and take them to their destinations.
- Cost-effective: Rental of individual vehicles can cost a lot more than grouping delegates together in the same shuttle. This means that guests can be transported more economically in groups. It is also much more comfortable and relaxing, so your delegates arrived refreshed.
