Earlier in the year we got the ability to Earn KrisFlyer Miles with Blacklane a new Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer Miles partner opening up another opportunity for us miles chasers and something that I didn’t post on at the time!
About Blacklane and Pricing
Blacklane is a German startup that offers professional driving services across 250 cities. On the surface it seems like a great service – good cars, professional drivers and backed up with Uber/Grab style driver tracking and booking apps.
With Blacklane being positioned as a Premium Service prices as you’d expect are much higher than local taxis with a Changi Pickup being over double what I’d expect to pay for a taxi home during non-peak (that’ll even up during peak and surge hours for taxis/Grab).
All of the services are Meet and Greet where you could save yourself some time with taxis queues at Changi Airport as well as other busy airports.
Our Family Experience with Blacklane
During my families recent trips to Europe this past summer Blacklane became our go-to option for chauffeur services from the airports to our hotels and my wife and I were impressed with the service. Drivers were always waiting for us and we had no issues with contacting them when we’re running a little slow in the airports (due to two infants!).
We also found they were knowledgeable about the routes and traffic and we didn’t have any issues with the car seats being provided that we needed for our near two-year old (we took our infant car seat with us for our other infant).
Earn KrisFlyer Miles with Blacklane
If you value convenience and a little bit of luxury then earning KrisFlyer Miles with them is going to be a nice little bonus but I’d avoid choosing them based on the miles alone. The earning rates are quite unique for Blacklane as they are given in three different currencies but at the same earning rate – so effectively you’ll get more per SGD for a booking in USD that you would for GBP (brexit allowing!)
- 2 KrisFlyer Miles per 1USD
- 2 KrisFlyer Miles per 1GBP
- 2 KrisFlyer Miles per 1EUR
Bookings are very flexible in that you can make them up to one hour before the desired time required and also cancel up to one hour before which could be super handy if your plans have changed – or if you didn’t make any in the first place!
Note that your KrisFlyer miles will only be received 6-8 weeks after you’ve had your trip so you’ll be waiting a while for those miles.
