Dutch-based company Taxi Tender will soon provide global access to pre-arranged discount airport taxis through Amadeus booking solutions. This partnership allows travellers to book airport taxis in advance when they are booking their trips through travel agents, on airline websites, or on airport websites.

Their service is available in more than five thousand destinations spanning North America, Europe, Africa and Asia.

The ride will then be auctioned among local taxi and transfer companies. By doing so, the traveler is guaranteed a favorable fixed price before they even leave their home.
