We’re on record here at OMAAT as preferring to avoid taxis, as our rides nearly always end up being highly entertaining, and not particularly efficient. When public transportation isn’t reasonably available, our defaults are Uber, Lyft, and even hotel cars — probably like many of you.
Hotel cars can be expensive, and of course Uber and Lyft have their problems as well. There are some alternative companies, however, including Blacklane, which specializes in airport transfers (though they provide other car services as well). Blacklane promotes itself as a “global professional driver service,” not a ridesharing provider or transportation app. They utilize licensed and regulated drivers throughout their network of 200+ cities.
To be clear — Blacklane isn’t a cheap ridesharing alternative. This is a service you’ll want to use in lieu of a pricey hotel car, or another car service. The pricing is competitive with UberBlack in most markets I’ve checked, as a point of comparison, but it’s definitely an upgraded option. (Blacklane does offer “economy” options in some cities, and those are generally priced close or better than UberX).
I’ve been using the service off and on for about a year now — mainly in Europe or in situations where I want to be sure of a ride at a certain time for a fixed price. I’ve been pretty pleased, and have only experienced minor glitches. In Chicago, for example, the limo company Blacklane contracted to didn’t get the memo about “meet and greet” service being included, so I was looking for a driver inside, and he was looking for me outside. Took an extra maybe three minutes to resolve though, and really not a big deal.
At any rate, it seems many of you have been using Blacklane as well, because they keep sending me voucher codes good for 10 Dollars/Euros/GBP off a future ride.
Many, many, many emails.
There are more discount codes than I could ever possibly start to use, so I want to pass them back on to y’all.
These codes aren’t account-bound, so anyone can use them — especially existing users. In order to not make this more complicated than it’s already going to be though, let’s agree to some general guidelines:
- New users should sign up first, then use code BL10 (or any of the ones in the comments) — multiple people can use that code, but only on their first ride, so let’s start there and save the single-use vouchers for existing users
- Please only take a code if you’re making a confirmed reservation — once a Blacklane discount code is applied to a reservation, it can’t be recovered if the reservation is canceled
- Please post in the comments once you’ve used a code, so I can cross it off the list
With that out of the way, here are a few hundred Blacklane discount codes that will take 10 Dollars/Euros/GBP off your next booking:
Enjoy (and for the sake of my inbox, please post your own referral codes in the comments!)
