Black car operators are diversifying their fleets to meet changing markets and changing demands
Rental car companies rev up some unusual connections to deal with a shifting transportation playing field
Blacklane’s recent acquisition of US-based Solve, which offers VIP concierge services, will strengthen its foothold in the market, where it already has the potential to displace one of the major income streams of inbound tour operators – airport transfers.
With the boom of mobile-friendly ride-hailing services, there’s no shortage of transport options for business travelers when they touch down in a new country.
But professional driver service Blacklane – with two thirds of its clients using it for business – is setting itself apart by introducing to travelers a more “integrated” approach to getting around.
Blacklane will make business travel even easier after its purchase of global airport concierge booking service Solve. The company offers everything from curbside and air-side passenger meet and greet, fast-track security, and expedited customs and immigration through to connecting flight assistance and lounge access.
