I did a long article on airport transfer group Blacklane the other day as it now gives miles in five frequent flyer schemes. It is a fast growing global provider of ground transportation services, operating in 250 cities across 50 countries. Via its website or app, you can pre-order a vehicle for a specific trip or by the hour.
The current airline partners are:
- Asia Miles (2 per £/$/€ spent)
- Flying Blue (2 per £/$/€ spent)
- Miles & More (2 per £/$/€ spent)
- Qatar Privilege Club (1 per £/$/€ spent)
- Enrich (Malaysia Airlines) (2 per £/$/€ spent)
As of yesterday, there is a sixth option.
You can now earn Singapore Airlines Krisflyer miles with Blacklane. The rate is 2 miles per £, $ or € you spend. There is a drop-down box during the booking process for you to add your frequent flyer details. You can also create a profile in the Blacklane system which will automatically apply your details.
And get 10% off your first ride
For a limited period, Blacklane is offering 10% off your first ride. You need to use promo code BL10.
Blacklane has a slightly odd way of entering promotional codes. You will be presented with a page asking for your credit card details. After you type them in, there is an additional screen which asks if you have a voucher code. Add BL10 on that page and 10% is deducted from your quote. Your card is not charged until after the ride and you can cancel until 1 hour before pick-up.
You can book, create an account or find out more about Blacklane on their website here.
