Johannesburg is the first African city in which the company launches
BERLIN & JOHANNESBURG--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The chauffeur service provider Blacklane fortifies its leading position in the International market, and extends its area of operation to Johannesburg. Following the success of its launches in America, Australia and Asia in recent weeks, expectations for Johannesburg are equally high.
“Blacklane offers its service where its customers need and want to travel,” explains Dr. Jens Wohltorf, co-founder of Blacklane, adding, “We are on the way to becoming their number one international companion for their entire journey.”
Jo’burg, as it's called by locals, is a fast-paced metropolis and the economic center of South Africa. Many global companies have their head offices here. “That shows us that Johannesburg is a very important city for business travelers,” Frank Steuer, co-founder, says. “Blacklane offers a comfortable and safe alternative to the taxi, whether you're traveling on vacation or for business,” adds Wohltorf.
Blacklane is firmly establishing itself as one of the leading international players in the limousine service industry. “Local providers welcome us wherever we show up, knowing that we’ll add to their revenue instead of diminishing it.”
Bookings can be made around the clock either online at www.blacklane.com/en or using the “Blacklane” smartphone app. After specifying their pickup location and booking period or desired destination, customers can choose from one of three classes of vehicles (Business Class, Business Van/SUV, First Class) at a binding, fixed price including all taxes. Cars can be booked up to fifteen minutes before the customer's required pickup time.
Blacklane limousines can now be booked in 24 countries: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, China (incl. Hong Kong and Macau), Colombia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Malaysia, Mexico, the Netherlands, Norway, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, the U.K. and the U.S.
Blacklane GmbH, a Berlin-based company, provides individual and corporate customers with a mobile booking service for high quality chauffeur and limousine services, with transparent and attractive rates. Acting as a head office for limousine services, Blacklane does not possess its own vehicles but rather partners with existing providers to allow customers to enjoy comfortable journeys at inexpensive, fixed prices. The company currently employs more than 60 staff members. Find further information at www.blacklane.com.
