Blacklane is my absolute favorite on-demand car service in Europe, and elsewhere, for 2021 for not only its luxurious rides but its safety measures during the COVID-19 pandemic. In a world where Uber is king and so are unwelcome surprises with drivers and car quality, Blacklane is a reliable service that allows you to book seamlessly on one of the best transportation apps created in a long time, and adjust your ride times at the flick of a finger without problem. Blacklane exists throughout Europe and North America and in most major cities, even places further afield.
I rode with Blacklane recently from Naples Airport in Italy to the beautiful village of Positano – which is about a 90-minute trek down the stunning Amalfi Coast. I booked using the Blacklane app and did so just before flying from New York on an overnight flight. I landed smoothly and received a text from Blacklane with my driver’s name. I replied to let him know I would be out shortly and was met with a sign by a friendly gentleman wearing a suit and escorted to a beautiful Mercedes sedan.
Inside the vehicle it was spotless with nothing in sight but extra masks, hand sanitizer and waters to hydrate. This made me feel so good during this pandemic and with newfound hygiene habits. The driver asked if I wanted the windows down for extra air flow, or if I wanted them left up. This too was a welcome question considering the situation. I chose to put the windows down a bit to enjoy the sunny day and watch the cliffs drift by as we meandered down the coast.
Blacklane drivers are always on-time, professional and courteous. I have used the service many, many times and it has never faltered. Even on my return trip, Blacklane arrived to my hotel in Positano 20 minutes early and assisted with bags to keep us on track to return to the airport. In situations where you need an airport transfer, day of shopping around the city or a quick jaunt – in style, Blacklane is the best.
