At Travelhub we promote Green Travel but we also realise that sometimes people need to drive. To facilitate this we offer a number of options:
- Car Hire
Between petrol, parking, insurance, maintenance and repairs, driving your car can get pretty expensive. Add rush-hour traffic to the mix, and it can be stressful too. Luckily there’s a simple way to save yourself money and stress—just share the driving responsibilities with someone else.
It's very simple, you only need one or more passengers to create a carpool. To find someone to share with, talk to your coworkers, neighbours and friends. Travelhub offer companies a website where coworkers can link up with each other to share car trips to work. This is included in the microsite we set up specifically for your company.
There many ways to handle a carpool. By alternating vehicles and drivers equally among carpoolers, the issue of money can be ignored. Another option might be to share fuel costs with those who live farther away.
Travelhub will also provide your company with an online booking tool for employees to book Taxis. We have negotiated discounts with these Taxi operators to ensure your staff get the best deal when using Taxi Services.
For times when you need a car but only need it for a few hours Travelhub offer GoCar. This is a simple, flexible, way to hire a car by the hour. GoCars can be booked 24/7 online or over the phone via our customer service. There are a range of GoCars, so each trip you get to choose the most suitable GoCar for you: superminis, larger family cars and also vans. Very useful for shopping, weekends away, holiday trips, and business trips: get the GoCar you want, whenever you want! GoCars are well-cared for and regularly maintained vehicles with fully comprehensive insurance. GoCar locations (GoBases) are dedicated parking spaces, so you'll have hassle-free parking near to your home or work.
We provide you with your own GoCard - your own smart card. The GoCard is your car key for all GoCars in Ireland. You can then reserve your preferred GoCar for trip...online or by telephone... by the hour, on a daily or weekly basis, spontaneously or far in advance.
GoCars are always parked at the same location directly on the street. We call these points GoBases. All GoBases are accessible 24/7. Just hop into your booked GoCar at the GoBase using your own GoCard.
Whilst driving your GoCar if you need to refuel, simply use the fuel card that we have provided in each GoCar - and we get the bill. So fill up as often as you feel like!
At the end of your trip simply return to the GoBase that you started from and lock the GoCar using your GoCard.
At the end of each month we simply send you an invoice for your usage which is always all-inclusive, and is debited from your account. You can add notes to bookings so you always know the cost of each trip - very handy for personal budgeting, or for billing back to your company or client.
For longer trips or when you want to leave the car at an alternative destination Travelhub have partnered with Dollar Thrifty Car Rental to offer employees discounted rates for car hire.
