Flying. I’m hitting the airport at least a half dozen times each year. It was about double pre-kids and now that I’ve got two babes in tow, it’ll be quite a while before I travel with both. Have you ever seen parents with more than one kid in the airport? Everyone is flustered. I’m not ready for it yet but when the time hits, I will definitely be using Blacklane.
Never heard of Blacklane? They are a chauffeur portal connecting people to professional chauffeurs via their mobile app. I already know what you’re thinking. How do they differ from Lyft and Uber? Good question. I’ve done Uber before and while it may have its place, I found my experience with Blacklane to be exceptional.
For one, you aren’t just hopping in the car with a stranger. Blacklane drivers are professional, arrive in clean vehicles and are incredibly helpful.
Last year, EB and I took a trip to Atlanta. Our driver Lou arrived to pick us up and was super helpful with helping install her car seat. I’m already a ball of nerves when flying with a kid and one of the bigger stresses is installing and removing those blasted carseats. It’s a necessary pain but I was so grateful at how patient and kind Lou was. His Lincoln was clean and comfortable and he didn’t hesitate to make sure that we were comfortable with the temperature.
Lou also picked us up from the Orlando International Airport and he was just as accommodating. I know every experience with these chauffeuring apps can vary but I am more likely to go with Blacklane because of their professionalism. It’s as if they truly care about providing a great experience. That, to me, is worth the investment and even more so when I’m traveling with my precious cargo.
Is Blacklane expensive?
While our rides were courtesy rides, they would have been about $60 each way. Having taken several cab rides to the airport before, that price is about the average cost for what I’d pay a traditional cab. Blacklane may have been a tad bit more but not by much.
What makes Blacklane special?
Simply put, if you want a classier experience, Blacklane is the way to go. It is a guaranteed exceptional experience and they provide service across many cities and countries.
