BERLIN & MADRID & BARCELONA, Spain--(BUSINESS WIRE)--A few weeks after its successful launch in Chicago, Brussels, and Milan, Blacklane is expanding to Spain. The chauffeur company decided to change its usual approach by launching in Madrid and Barcelona at the same time: “We used to test our services in a single city before moving on to others in the same country,” explained director and co-founder, Frank Steuer. “But with what we’ve learned from over 25 previous launches, we’re convinced that starting in multiple places at the same time will be a success.”
Blacklane can now offer its services in two of Spain’s most important cities. “Both Madrid and Barcelona are global business centers and tourist hotspots — it was an easy choice to make.” added Jens Wohltorf, co-founder of Blacklane.
Blacklane is the perfect alternative to public transportation, especially for passengers looking to get to or from the airport. Services are available to business travelers, tourists, and locals at very affordable rates: “Our customers regularly confirm that our approach is exactly what they’re looking for: fair prices, reliable chauffeurs, and comfortable cars.” Says Wohltorf.
Having received overwhelmingly positive feedback wherever it launches, Blacklane knows it’s on the right path. The company wants to establish itself as one of the leading players in the limousine service industry and is not afraid of international competitors. “We don’t own any limousines. Instead we offer local limousine companies a transparent platform through which to offer their services — for free. They’re happy whenever we show up in their city, knowing we’ll add to their revenue instead of diminishing it,” added Steuer.
With its recent launch in Spain, Blacklane is now available in 11 countries: Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, The Netherlands, Spain, Switzerland, Turkey, UK, USA.
Blacklane GmbH, a Berlin-based startup, provides individual and corporate customers with a mobile booking service for high quality chauffeur and limousine services at transparent and attractive rates. Acting as a head office for limousine services, Blacklane does not own any vehicles but rather partners with existing providers to allow customers to enjoy comfortable journeys at inexpensive, fixed prices. The company currently employs more than 50 staff members. Find further information at www.blacklane.com.
