Business Travelers Can Schedule Blacklane’s Professional Driver Service on Concur, Sabre and Travelport Booking Tools via Groundspan

Business travelers now gain new access to professional drivers across more than 50 countries, 250 cities and 500 airports worldwide. Blacklane follows a strict duty of care philosophy and only cooperates with commercially licensed and insured affiliates.

Groundspan is a ground transportation automation and management platform. Thousands of companies use its worldwide reservation system to manage employee transportation and reduce costs. A key benefit is its integration with many of the largest corporate travel booking engines, such as:

  • Concur Travel.
  • Sabre GetThere.
  • Sabre Red.
  • Travelport Smartpoint for Apollo and Galileo.
  • Travelport Smartpoint for Worldspan.

“Business travelers desire more trusted providers in ground transportation,” said Tony Bonanno, president of Groundspan. “Groundspan bridges that gap for these travelers and the vendors they seek.”

Travelers and travel managers who use the Groundspan tools can now access Blacklane for their worldwide trips. Blacklane offers:

  • Guaranteed, all-inclusive fixed rates. All taxes, tolls, fees, tips or surges are included in the rates and known in advance. Blacklane’s fares are a fraction of the cost of legacy limousine services.
  • A fully integrated travel experience by adding airport transfers to flight and hotel reservations.
  • Instant booking confirmations.
  • Free driver waiting time: one hour at airport and train station pick-ups and 15 minutes at all other pickup locations.
  • Customer-friendly policies, such as free cancellations until one hour before pick-up for transfers.
  • Real-time flight tracking and automatic adjustment of pickup times according to the actual arrival times.
  • Driver contact information sent over text and email one hour before pick-up.
  • 24/7 multi-lingual customer service and real-time service control.

“We want to make it as easy as possible for business travelers to book reliable transfers worldwide. Groundspan is the link between corporate travel tools and Blacklane’s quality service, fair rates and straightforward policies,” said Sascha Meskendahl, chief revenue officer of Blacklane.
