About: The Ports Direct site and service was developed in order to offer the UK cruise sector a nationwide bespoke cruise transfer solution. Ports Direct offers cruise agents a direct discount from all bookings made using their online account with the company.
The system was developed throughout 2006 following detailed consultation with cruise specialists, cruise lines and research statistics provided by the Passenger Shipping Association. Ports Direct went live during January 2007 and continues to grow in its adoption and use within the industry.
A range of features and online booking tools within the Ports Direct system enable cruise passengers, travel agents, cruise specialists and cruise lines to quickly book and administer their transfers in a rapid and effective way. The Ports Direct system allows the user to cost and book either a Shared or Private Door to Door service.
The primary cruise ports covered by Ports Direct are Dover, Harwich and Southampton.
Ports Direct benefits from the direct input and expertise of its parent Coach Direct organisation, whose ongoing input and support has been invaluable in relation to the operational and logistical aspects of land transport. Ports Direct clients are able to benefit from the use of these additional services offered by the larger company – Coach Direct for coach hire (ideal for larger and bespoke group hire) and Taxi Direct, which is fully geared to offer airport transfers and private taxi transfers from the UK, Europe and Worldwide.
As a specialist within the cruise sector, Ports Direct is proud to be an Associate Member of the Passenger Shipping Association, an approved Travel Partner with the Association of Cruise Experts, and a Travel Industry Partner with ABTA.
