An international, online transportation reservation platform for traveler…
Business travel can be a headache. When you have to travel internationally, that headache can become a migraine. At Brooks, we’ve developed a worldwide luxury airport and point to point transfer service to ease the pain of international travel.
We’ve developed an online program that allows travelers to easily book safe, reliable transportation from the airport to their hotel or business meeting. We specialize in luxury accommodations, working with local limousine car services. With the number of business travelers in search of reliable airport transfer on the rise, so is the need for a simplified transfer booking tool.
Business travelers are careful when booking their flights, and there are plenty of tools to help them do that. Corporate travel websites alert them if they select a flight that’s often late or if their layover is too short to make their connection. When it comes to their hotel stay, the booking tool will let these road warriors choose an early check-in, a high floor, or a extra pillows. With flights and hotel taken care of, there’s nothing to worry about except that big client meeting, right?
This can result in a time-consuming Google search comparing car services, waiting in a long line at the airport cab stand, or risking it with the first car service employee who approaches them upon landing. In many developing countries this is not only a hassle, but can be unsafe.
With safety and convenience in mind, travelers may book a car service through their hotel or with one of the major, international car service companies. However, the customer is paying for that safety and convenience with a high markup and currency exchange fees.
Other aspects of the business travel experience have been streamlined, why not airport transfer?
The best part is, our customers get this streamlined service without spending more. Using our multi-currency payment gateway, customers can easily compare rates and book in the local currency. This means saving money on currency exchange fees. Rates are fed into the system database in real time, so prices are always up-to-date and accurate.
Our local affiliate car companies are researched and certified to make sure our customers are traveling safely.
Our staff and board of directors have decades of experience with the major players in the travel and transportation industry. Several of us have owned and operated our own transportation companies. We know how things work, we know the trends, and we know where there’s room for improvement.
Single platform. With BROOKS, you can compare rates, select the car of your choice, and book your travel in one place. The need for researching local car companies on your own time is gone, leaving you time to focus on your business.
Flexible booking. With our online reservation system, customers are free to book exactly what they need. On an hourly basis, they can book airport transfer or point-to-point service.
Local Currency. Our competitors require customers to book transport in their own currency, causing the customer to incur exchange fees from their banks and credit card companies. Our multi-currency payment gateway program allows customers to pay in 77 different currencies.
An ample fleet. Our business partners are comprised of 4,000 operators in 60 different countries. Many of them are in developing countries, where business travel is increasing.
Security and Safety. We know that safety is the key to building trust. That’s why we put great effort into verifying and authenticating each of the car companies we partner with.
Flight delays are no problem. With our flight tracking software, our drivers can adjust to a change in your arrival time. If your flight is delayed, there’s no need to add calling the transport service to your to-do list. Our drivers will be notified automatically of your new arrival time, and will be there right when you need them.
The best vehicle for your needs. If you’re taking your whole team to a conference, a compact car is not going to work. If you’re traveling with the CEO of your company, you’ll need something more luxurious than a hatchback. With BROOK, you can select the best form of transport for your needs.
Luxury. We even offer limousines and luxury cars for special occasions or those customers accustomed to this form of travel.
Though our product has not launched yet, we are in prime position to start serving clients. Our parent company owns a 50% stake in TC Express, and we’ll start by targeting their existing client base of business travelers.TC Express is a company and Brooks is our brand
After this BETA launch, we’ll kick off our digital marketing campaign and bring in new customers. Since we were in the business of corporate travel prior to creating TC Express, we will be able to market to this client base as well.

The idea for Brooks came when one of our directors was traveling to the Far East on a business trip. Upon landing at the airport, it took him an hour to find a cab, and when he finally did it was overpriced. This experience inspired the idea for a prepaid transport service that can be arranged before the traveler embarks on his or her journey.
