Mozio helps tourists to more easily plan their transport between the airport and their hotel.
The travel and transportation sector is one that’s almost saturated with startups, from Airbnb and Hitlist to Uber and Lyft. There’s even FlightCar, which lets travelers make money by renting out the cars they’d otherwise leave in the airport parking lot for the duration of their trip. However, Mozio is moving into a previously untapped area, helping tourists to more easily plan their transport between the airport and their hotel.
Mozio operates much like other travel search engines — users indicate whether they’re traveling to or from the airport, their flight times, and their location and destination. The site then checks all possible routes including shared-ride shuttle, airporter, taxi, limo and public transit ride, and displays them sorted by price. Users can book and pay for their preferred ride through the site, adding gratuity if they wish.
Considering how often travelers don’t book the ‘last mile’ of their trip ahead, Mozio could help tourists save money by making them aware of the whole range of local services available to get to their hotel and back to the airport. The company aims to add extra features, such as ratings and reviews, in the future, along with the development of mobile apps. Are there other pre-bookable aspects of a trip abroad that have been overlooked by search engine and price comparison sites?
