Tinker is a Dutch startup that aims to solve the “last mile” problem for booking ground transportation between between an airport and a destination.
In a unique touch, when a customer is arriving at Amsterdam’s Schiphol, a Tinker representative (called a Tinker Bell) greets passengers at the airport’s main hall and guides him or her to the booked car and driver.
Tinker also serves — but doesn’t have hostesses — at Eindhoven, and Rotterdam in the Netherlands; the German airports Dusseldorf and Weeze Niederrhein; and Belgium’s airports in Brussels, Antwerp, and Bruges.
Founded in 2012, the startup says it has already served 45,000 passengers in the Netherlands. It points to hundreds of positive reviews online.
