Have you ever wanted to tour remote and beautiful areas of Connemara and the West but found that with luggage, such plans have to be cancelled? If so, a new Galway business has been set up to make sure that you can holiday without having to worry about having to transport your luggage from one hotel, hostel B&B to the next. Bagcab.com (The Bag Cab Ltd ) is a daily luggage transfer service for the western region. It is a fully registered Irish company, set up and based in the West of Ireland, covering a wide span – from Galway, Westport, Connemara to south Mayo. A low cost, efficient, luggage transfer service, promoting green, healthy holidays, the bagcab.com caters for the individual or group interested in outdoor holidays.
The company is the brainchild of brothers Rónán and Ciarán Ganter and they hope that this service will be of great benefit to cyclists and walkers alike.
Having successfully built a chauffeur company operating throughout Ireland, the Ganter brothers have 12 years experience in tourism at the highest level. While working with the domestic and overseas markets, they identified an opportunity which will add huge value to the tourism industry as a whole. Thus the Bag Cab Ltd was born.
This new service will operate at a fraction of the cost of any other form of luggage transport and it also promotes environmentally healthy holidays and breaks, in your own time and at your own pace. Its two main aims are to offer a daily, low cost, efficient and professional luggage transfer service to cyclists, walkers and holidaymakers and to beat the current recession by providing a ‘no frills’ practical service.
‘It will give people the flexibility to travel without the burden of carrying their luggage also. For local businesses, the service is also available and it can be used to transport goods or items to any of our bagcab locations for as little as €6 per item/package. If any location along our route wishes to avail of Bagcab, we also offer a pre-booked service and can take bookings up to the day before for these enquiries,” said Ronan Gunter
How it works in simple terms - each day, two identical BagCab.com vehicles operate a clockwise and anticlockwise route throughout Connemara and Mayo including Galway, Westport and Clifden. Luggage can be collected and delivered in either direction along this route seven days a week. Just one item of luggage cost €5 and this includes picking up and delivering to any listed drop off location.
This volume-based service is unique in that it allows the independent traveller to plan his / her own holiday at a pace to suit him/her. Bagcab.com also offers suggested holiday tours and accommodations to suit all pockets – from camping to castles and lists a number of cycle hire outlets in various locations.
