Changing the travel game

Over a decade of travel innovation

Founded in 2011 by Jens Wohltorf and Frank Steuer, Blacklane created a smarter way to book and manage rides — something affordable, reliable, and efficient. Since then, Blacklane has grown from a two-man operation in Germany to an international, award-winning crew of over 300 people with hubs in Singapore, Spain, the U.A.E., the U.K., and the U.S.

How Blacklane works

We work with independent local chauffeur service providers around the world, and through our tech, allow global travelers to book rides with them. We do not provide, own, or control any of the rides offered by these providers, but rather facilitate them. Prices are calculated based on factors including vehicle class, distance, and drive time, and our margin comes from selling those rides to independent local chauffeur service providers, typically via our auction where they can choose the rides that best fit them.

Go the extra mile

Look beyond what is required. Be proactive to go beyond guests’ expectations. If you see that something could be better, take the initiative to improve it.

Act with integrity

Act in a fair and honest manner. Strive to always do the right thing for our guests, chauffeurs, and each other. Treat everyone with the same high level of respect — just as you would like to be treated.
