“What we do is we aggregate high-quality content on the one side, making sure that they fit into our high standards, that everything feels and smells like Blacklane no matter where you bought a car. We have highly educated professional chauffeurs. On the other side, we offer it to individual customers, to corporate customers like consulting firms, but also to airlines, cruise lines, hotel chains, and travel agencies. So we’re bringing both together and making sure that the quality is always right. We engage very deeply in the service experience and in every single detail of it. That differentiates us.”
Ride hailing is nothing new, of course, but Blacklane took it to a whole new level earlier this year when it introduced chauffeur hailing. Crucially for corporate travellers, Blacklane chauffeur hailing promises the same quality, health and safety standards and fixed competitive fares as its pre-booked trips.
Ground transport could also replace rail and short-haul flights, potentially saving time and money. This has similar advantages to private jet hire, allowing desired departure time, paying per vehicle rather than per person and removing the need to rub shoulders with the rest of the travelling public.
From Nice Airport and most of the Côte d’Azur, Saint-Tropez isn’t easily accessible via public transportation, so the best option is to book a private transfer. Blacklane is the top pick for stress-free luxury and door-to-door efficiency—especially with the handy app, which keeps you updated every step of the way and lets you edit and book new trips. (You can even cancel your ride for free up to one hour before pickup.) Rides are also 100-percent carbon neutral, thanks to Blacklane’s carbon-offset program, and vehicles and chauffeurs are all top spec.
If you don’t want to stress about the rental car shortage or worry about parking fees, you may be inclined to use services like Uber or Lyft. But unfortunately, these have become notably unreliable as travel rebounds. The labor shortage is hitting ride-hailing companies hard, as TPG’s Caroline Tanner recently covered. When you need to ensure a car is available at a certain time, splurge for higher-end car services from a company like Blacklane.
