08. February 2016

Black car service is 50 percent lower than traditional limousine company rates

BERLIN – 8 February 2016 – Starting today, Las Vegas travelers can reserve black car rides at rates 50 percent lower than legacy limousine costs.

Global professional driver service Blacklane is expanding to Las Vegas. As in all of Blacklane’s 180+ cities, customers will receive:

  • Transparent rates. Travelers see their fixed, all-inclusive fares before they book. That means there are no extra taxes, fees or tips. Blacklane’s rates never surge.
  • Commercially licensed and insured drivers and vehicles. Blacklane only partners with companies that possess all required permits and operating licenses.
  • Business- and first-class vehicles, such as the Lincoln MKT, Mercedes S-Class and Chevrolet Suburban.
  • Guaranteed rides. Customers book one-way and hourly rides one hour to months ahead of time.
  • High service. Blacklane automatically adjusts airport pickups when arrival times change, and all airport pickups include one hour of driver wait time. Drivers meet and greet passengers in McCarran Airport’s baggage claim. Travelers also receive text and emailed driver contact information an hour before pickup. Customers who need help can contact Blacklane’s multilingual 24/7 team by phone, email or social media.

In 2015, 5.7 million business travelers attended 22,100 Las Vegas conventions, according to the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority. That is up nearly ten percent from 5.2 million people in 2014.

“There is no place like Las Vegas for business and leisure travel,” said Jens Wohltorf, CEO and co-founder of Blacklane. “Until now, it was too difficult and expensive to book your black car ride in advance. Blacklane closes the missing link in the travel chain with guaranteed, high-quality rides between airports, hotels and convention centers.”
