Fort Lauderdale, Fla. / NEW YORK – (June 20, 2024) – SIXT, a leading global mobility provider, and Blacklane, leading global chauffeur company, today announce that Blacklane chauffeur services are now bookable through SIXT ride in North America via the SIXT app and SIXT.com. SIXT ride is the ride-hailing and premium chauffeur services offering of SIXT. This enables more convenience and flexibility for SIXT ride customers looking to book premium travel in the United States and Canada, as SIXT ride users now have access to Blacklane’s wide range of services that cater to business and leisure travelers in addition to the already existing SIXT ride-hailing offering.

By integrating Blacklane as a trusted partner in the ride-hailing and chauffeur services offered through SIXT ride, customers will benefit from a broader selection of high-quality options such as Airport Transfers, In-City Rides, Chauffeur-by-the-Hour bookings and City-to-City connections between metropolitan areas while enjoying the seamless SIXT ride booking experience. In addition, customers will have even more choices to pick from several vehicle types that fit every occasion including First Class (the latest top range models i.e. Mercedes-Benz S-Class, BMW 7-Series), Business Class (vehicle classes such as Chevrolet Suburban, Cadillac Escalade), Electric Class, and Business Van/SUV. All bookings can be made via SIXT app or SIXT.com/ride, selecting the Ride option and their destination. This allows customers to efficiently manage all their mobility needs in one place.

Tom Kennedy, President, SIXT North America: “SIXT is committed to providing our customers with premium mobility solutions across car rental, subscription, ride-hailing and chauffeur services. We are excited to welcome Blacklane as a valued partner and grow  together as SIXT expands its footprint across North America, the most important growth market for both companies.”

Kyle Fackler, Head of Market Management Americas at Blacklane: “It’s great to see our offering integrated into SIXT’s services. Their extensive experience in the area of premium ride services, combined with Blacklane’s luxury offering and presence in North America, create a powerful combination that will bring elevated experiences to our guests in the United States as well as Canada and drive both company’s market growth.”

This news follows SIXT and Blacklane’s partnership announcement in September of 2023, which announced the joint effort in expanding their footprint in international markets with an initial special focus on North America. The cooperation will also benefit from SIXT’s continued expansion across North America as well as the recent launches of Blacklane’s on demand service and City-to-Beach connections. The cooperation will further both companies’ mission of enhancing mobility and curating better experiences for travelers across North America.
