Uber is the app-based limo service that has become something of a phenomenon in 57 countries globally to-date, and has its sights set on expanding yet further. Using the GPS location technology found in smartphones, Uber matches passengers and drivers to get a car where and when a rider needs one as quickly as possible. And, by constantly monitoring user patterns, Uber aims to be ahead of the game by guiding cars towards the areas of highest demand before they’re even called.

Uber is a cashless system which charges rides to registered credit cards, and also offers the option to split fares between riders.

The Uber app is available for iPhone, Android and BlackBerry devices, and registration is also possible from the desktop site at uber.com.

*The credit amount can vary at Uber’s discretion. Please check the amount shown when you commence the sign-up process.

A Guide To Resorthoppa Shuttle & Private Transfers – Plus 10% Off Code

by Continental Club on June 21, 2014  |  Leave a comment • Tagged as: , , , , , , , ,

ResorthoppaIt’s not so many years ago that the only way to travel between airport and accommodation was in a taxi with a seemingly hyperactive meter, a misemployed local bus, or on board a packed coach which left the airport only when the last, delayed passenger had finally hauled themselves and the remains of their luggage from customs. There then followed a leisurely tour around the back streets of countless towns and villages before, inevitably, you remained the last passenger to be ejected at the very last hotel on the not-so-scenic tour.

Thankfully, those days are largely gone, and even package tour operators often allow their clients the option to deselect transfers and make their own arrangements.

Resorthoppa is one of the largest operators in this new market, providing transfer services through a network of suppliers in countries across the globe – and serving ports, airports and many principal railway stations. Currently, they rank number one in the most-booked transfer company through The Continental Club.

Travellers choose from a variety of transfer options, from small vehicle shuttles, private cars, executive cars and even full-size coaches for large groups. In many cases, the cost of a private car is the same or lower than a taxi, with the added benefit of a meet and greet service and a fixed fare paid in advance. In some cases, a private car can also work out cheaper than the cost of the coach transfers offered by tour operators.

The Resorthoppa system is straight forward: book online and receive an email voucher which should be printed out in duplicate for each journey, so that one copy can be surrendered to the driver and one kept as a receipt. For port, airport or station to accommodation arrangements, the voucher will provide details of how to locate the driver or representative upon arrival. For accommodation to port, airport or station journeys, the voucher carries a local ‘phone number and also a web address, either of which should be checked at least 24 hours prior to departure to reconfirm pick up times.

And, until July 31st 2014, Continental Club blog readers can save an additional 10% on the cost of transfers by using the discount code HOPPA10 when booking at resorthoppa.com.

Latest Hotel, Travel Agent & Transfer Discount Codes – October 2012

by Continental Club on October 2, 2012  |  One comment

October is not quite such a busy month for online promotions but there are still deals to be had, including a one-day only 15% off hotels voucher code at Lastminute. Scroll to the end of the blogpost for more details on this 18th October flash sale.

Online travel agent Expedia is our first pick this month, with an offer of 10% off many hotel bookings made no later than midnight on 25th October, for stays up to the end of August 2013.

The discount code is UK43SAVE10

Sister company Hotels.com has a similar promotion running. To receive the same 10% off many hotel bookings, confirm your arrangements by 21st October for stays up to 30th June 2013. Don’t forget that Hotels.com also offers its clients ‘Welcome Rewards‘ on the majority of its rates.

The discount code is HCAUTU10. Code Now Expired.

Meanwhile, travel giant ebookers also offers a 10% off hotels code. Rates may vary above or below those on Expedia and Hotels.com, and the properties eligible for the code vary too. So, the ebookers code may work where the others don’t. Bookings for stays up to 31st December must be completed by the same date.

The discount code is HOTELFORU210.

 

Hilton Hotels and Turkish Airlines have joined forces to offer members of the latter’s Miles & Smiles programme 30% off rates at properties across Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Instant Miles & Smiles membership is free of charge – to enroll click here.

Once enrolled, the special Hilton rates can be accessed by clicking here. Bookings must be made by 31st October for stays until 30th June 2013.

 

And airport, station and seaport transfer specialist Resorthoppa is discounting its already often-competitive prices for a little longer, with a further 10% off taxis, shuttles and limos this month. Book by 5th October for all available travel dates.

The discount code is AUTUMN10. Code now expired.

 

Word once again reaches Continental Club Towers that lastminute.com will reduce the price of hotel bookings by 15% from 7am on Thursday October 18th 2012.

Entering the code ‘OCTOBER15’ at the checkout will validate the discount, which will last until 5,000 bookings have been made or 10am on Friday October 19th is reached – whichever comes first. Code now expired – more to come, though.

Three hotel groups are likely to be excluded – Hilton, Millennium & Copthorne and Accor – but otherwise the code should work on any other property.

To check prices and to book during the promotion, visit lastminute.com, and for a full list of Hilton, M&C and Accor properties, click ‘Read More’ below.

Latest Hotel, Travel Agent & Transfer Discount Codes – September 2012

by Continental Club on September 1, 2012  |  One comment

The end of the Summer travel season brings with it a switch back to thoughts of travel-planning for many people, and some of the biggest names in the industry have launched discount code offers this month.

Online travel agent Expedia leads the pack, with an offer of 10% off many hotel bookings made no later than midnight on 6th September, for stays up to the end of November.

The discount code is UK36SAVE10 Code Now Expired.

For those not quite so quick off the mark, Expedia sister company Hotels.com has a similar promotion running, but this time with a much later booking and stay deadline. To receive the same 10% off many hotel bookings, confirm your arrangements by 21st October for stays up to 30 June 2013.

The discount code is HCAUTU10.

Meanwhile, travel giant ebookers also offers a 10% off hotels code for the month. Rates may vary above or below those on Expedia and Hotels.com, and the properties eligible for the code vary too. So, the ebookers code may work where the others don’t. Bookings for stays up to 31st December must be completed by 30th September.

The discount code is HAPPY10.

 

Running right through until the end of September, Thomas Cook-owned Hotels4U has a 10% off hotel bookings offer ongoing as well. Rates are negotiated through Thomas Cook parent and can therefore represent yet another variation to the prices found on other sites. The discount code is applied automatically by clicking the Hotels4U logo or here.

 

And airport, station and seaport transfer specialist Resortoppa is discounting its already often-competitive prices with a further 10% off taxis, shuttles and limos this month. Book by 5th October for all available travel dates.

The discount code is AUTUMN10.

 

Back to hotels, and online travel agent OnHotels has a 5% discount valid when booking 3* or above hotels by 30th September, for all available stay dates. The company can already be a source of good-value rates – many including breakfast – so the extra discount make an already competitive rate even more attractive.

The discount code is SEPTSUN05.

Although not a code per se, Hilton are offering American Express cardholders who book and pay with their cards a 30% discount on the best available Bed & Breakfast rates at group properties across Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

Participating hotels include Hilton, Conrad, Double Tree by Hilton, Hilton Garden Inn and Waldorf=Astoria, and unlike bookings through online agencies, this promotion allows Hilton HHonors members to earn point, miles and stay credits.

Bookings must be made by 30 September 2012 for stays up to 31 March 2013, and the rates can be accessed by visiting this exclusive hilton.co.uk/amexsale link.

The link also provides details of the terms and conditions relating to the promotion.
