We decided to give Blacklane a try in Johannesburg yesterday. Anika’s hotel was very slow in replying to our request for a driver and when it did reply it wanted £47. By then we had already given up and booked Blacklane for (after the 10% first user discount) £38 for a similar black car. The ride will also earn me 108 Miles & More miles.
Anika’s feedback was excellent. She was met at arrivals and walked to the car where the driver was waiting. Water and cold towels were in the vehicle and the driver was keen to chat about the city.
You clearly can’t guarantee the same service globally but we would happily use it again. The online booking system is very easy – I don’t know how it does it, but virtually every building, street and hotel in every major global city is there and pops up when you start typing. You don’t need to know the exact address of where you are going.
The 10% first ride discount code is 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.
