About your ride

The Blacklane fleet of cars is easily identifiable bragging a chic two-toned hue of black and white. But it’s not all looks, the cars have a lot to offer to make your ride as comfortable and unique as possible.


The luxurious all-electric Mercedes-EQS brags a number of cool features including a 360 cooling system – perfect to cool you down during the summer. The car even has an advanced air filtration system, so you can breathe easily. Each seat provides optimal comfort with ventilation, but the best news? The seats have an in-chair massage function, so you will be able to relax during your trip.

To keep you hydrated on a warm summer’s day, you will have refreshing still and sparkling water available to quench your thirst.

How do I book?

When booking, all you have to do is set your pick up and drop off point, the date and time (if it’s for a future booking) and your vehicle class. The final step is to confirm your booking and payment method.


The first-class Mercedes-Benz EQS can fit three passengers and two suitcases – so you can ride to the airport in style.

Have a change in plans? You will be able to amend the booking if it’s within the hour of your travel time. And if you’re running late? You will get 5 minutes of wait time for on-demand services, 15-minutes on pre-booked services and an hour for pre-booked airport pickup.
