When travelling to another country, there’s a lot to consider about your stay. Where will you stay, how will you get around and what you can do? Transport is an essential factor of travelling in a new destination, specifically right after landing. When landing at one of the many Nigerian airports, you’ll also need transport that’s able to accommodate your luggage. Thus, GIG Mobility, previously known as God is Good Motors, might be the answer to your travel problems.
Why? They’re a comprehensive, award-winning end-to-end transport provider led by technology. They’ve also partnered with some travel agencies to help customers plan their stay and activities in Nigeria. They also offer pick-up services from anywhere, including from some of the best Nigerian airports. They also offer a courier service through their GIGM Logistics wing.
Read on further to get information on their terminals, prices, contacts and how customers can book their services.
GIGM: History and What Sets Them Apart
Started in 1998, the company has earned a reputation for excellent service provided in the last couple of decades. They operate in Ghana too, but their service is concentrated mainly in Nigeria. They work in over ten states with 29 terminals. Including the Ultra-Modern Bus Terminal in Lagos which is considered one of the best bus terminals in West Africa.
They’ve propelled themselves into the front by capitalizing on the archaic nature of Nigeria’s commuting industry. When they entered the market, many transporters required customers to arrive early in the morning to reserve their place. This practice is still happening today with some transporters.
On the other hand, GIGM.com allows online bookings which ultimately saves customers precious time and money. This is particularly good for tourists who can book ahead of landing in Nigeria.
They offer many services, namely:
- online bookings
- bus charter
- professional cab services.
They also offer customised tours to individuals, families and other groups of people. They boast an amazing fleet driven by highly trained driver. Thus allowing customers a trip without worrying about the hellish traffic. They have a Toyota Hiace, Sienna Minivan, Mercedes Benz Sprinter Bus and other luxury prime buses.
GIGM Online Booking
As already mentioned above, travellers can book a bus ticket from GIGM.com online. They can do so using three different ways. They can use technology to book via the company’s mobile app or official website.
If the customer is a little sceptical of technology, booking at one of their terminals is an option that can put their mind at ease.
GIGM.com mobile app
The mobile app is easy to use and makes booking convenient in today’s smartphone dominated world. Additionally, you can also track your booking activities and get the most updated information from the app.
Furthermore, a pickup service is also available. This means transport will come to you instead of requiring you to go to one of the terminals.
GIGM Booking on Their Website
Booking online is also easy to do and doesn’t take long at all. Bookings can be made on the official www.gigm.com website. All you need to do is fill in your details and make a payment when you’re ready.
Here’s a little rundown on what you’ll most likely need to fill out:
- Where you’ll be travelling from and to
- Your date of departure
- The number of people travelling, including how many adults and children
- Your identity details
- You’ll then book your seats, depending on the availability of the buses
- You’ll receive an email with a unique reference number. Give this unique number to an employee at the terminals to receive your physical ticket.
