The Chauffeur Service Blacklane Expands to Thailand

BERLIN & BANGKOK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 24, 2013--In the wake of its international expansion to Buenos Aires, New York City, and Hong Kong, Blacklane has decided to bring its comfortable, reliable transportation services to Thailand. With the launch in Bangkok, the German company is opening itself to another thriving market in Asia and millions of potential new customers.

When traveling to Thailand, one simply cannot avoid the capital: Bangkok. Housing almost a quarter of the country's total population, this metropolitan region is the undisputed heart of the nation. Business, politics, culture, and tourism - Bangkok is the unchallenged number one in all categories, making it a prime destination for travelers from all over the world.

Expanding to the Thai market was only a matter of time. "Whether one is planning ahead for a business trip or next holiday, one can book us right along with the flight. The days of having to look around for taxis or other means of getting around after arrival are over," Wohltorf continues.

Blacklane is firmly establishing itself as one of the leading international players in the limousine service industry. "Local providers welcome us wherever we show up, knowing that we'll add to their revenue instead of diminishing it."

Bookings can be made around the clock either online at www.blacklane.com or using the "Blacklane" smartphone app. After specifying their pickup location and booking period or desired destination, customers can choose from one of three classes of vehicles (Business Class, Business Van/SUV, First Class) at a binding, fixed price including all taxes. Cars can be booked up to fifteen minutes before the customer's required pickup time.

Blacklane limousines can be booked worldwide in more than 85 cities in 35 countries.
