How the season affects transfer sales?

If you know the seasonal specifics of selling transfers, you can timely get prepared for the sales decline or, conversely, high demand.
Let's learn about the features of the transfer sale typical for each season. First of all, we must say that Paris is in demand all year round. It is only in the winter when its popularity declines slightly. So always keep this holiday destination in mind.

How the season affects transfer sales?
Of course, summer is the main holiday time of the year. Both beach and sightseeing tours are in favor. In addition, a lot of off-site and large-scale events (festivals, concerts, conferences) take place at this time. All this requires the transportation of a huge number of people and can potentially bring greater profits.
Ones of the most popular regions in summer are Spain and Turkey (e.g. Antalya; the commission there is 6 euros on average (2019)).

CONCLUSION: pay close attention to Turkey, Spain and other popular countries.
In autumn, Turkey still keeps its popularity. However, the season there closes in October, which is just the beginning for the resorts of Thailand, the Dominican Republic, Vietnam, and the UAE. Recommend your tourists to consider these regions. Besides, transfers in these countries are expensive, and therefore you will earn more. The most popular region is Phuket. Six euros is the average commission of Kiwitaxi for each order in this city as well as Bangkok, Dubai, and Pattaya.

CONCLUSION: focus on tropical resorts to compensate for the season closing in popular summertime destinations.
One of the most popular destinations is Dubai. In winter, the heat here decreases and the weather becomes mild and warm. Therefore, at this time tourists often come here with children and elderly people. In addition, prices for accommodation in hotels are lower. Ski season begins in other countries (Alpine countries: Austria, Germany, Switzerland, France) in November. Minibuses (for large companies and bulky equipment) and premium cars (skiing is indeed not a cheap leisure activity) will be in great demand there.

CONCLUSION: although these regions bring a minimum number of orders during the year, you can compensate for the decline by selling ski transfers in winter.
In March, Dubai still holds its positions, but from April on, the weather in hot countries becomes increasingly uncomfortable (high humidity, temperature of water). In Turkey, however, it is still too early to swim.

You can compensate for the low travel demand by actively promoting spring tours to Europe. Spring is a great time for sightseeing and excursions. There are few tourists, which means there are no long lines at museums. It will be amazing to see Mona Lisa from the first row! Prices on accommodation and flights are significantly reduced, and there are still discounts in many cities in March.

The most popular city among European destinations is Paris. The average Kiwitaxi commission in this region in spring is 7 euro.

In European countries, transfer often costs not more than a taxi, and sometimes it is even cheaper. In addition, many public transport routes that are popular during high season are closed during the off-season. It is much easier to talk your client into ordering a transfer in a such situation.

CONCLUSION: tell tourists about the advantages of visiting Europe in spring and earn more during the sales downturn.
Preparing for the season will allow you to receive a steady income throughout the year. With Kiwitaxi, you will get a 10–15% commission from each booking.
