Blacklane handles thousands of rides each day, all of which are performed with the highest service standards in the ground transportation industry. We recognize that incidents do occasionally occur, and these are handled on a case­-by­-case basis to ensure partners know exactly what we expect of them. We know this will lead to sustainable business for both our partners and for us.

If an incident occurs during one of our rides, the Framework Cooperation and Transportation Services Agreement reserves the right for us to adjust the remuneration payable to our partners. Among others, the adjustments may cover customer retention vouchers and handling effort. In the case of recurring or severe incidents, a temporary offline setting or a termination of the contract may apply.


[1] Handling Fee is charged to account for Blacklane’s amount of effort and time required to resolve the issue resulting from the incident.
[2] In case the driver received the payment for the ride from the passenger, we will adjust the remuneration payable to the partner in the next invoice.
[3] If driver was not specified in the system or agreed with Blacklane.
[4] The costs for a short­ notice backup booking can be higher than the payment for the ride.
[5] This is to reimburse for the retention vouchers we give to the passengers . The percentage is based on the driverprice, not on the passenger price. It will be the percentage or maximum 100 EUR (except for hourly bookings), whatever is lower.
[6] This is a safety issue. In case partners cannot fulfill their duties on their own, partners shall give back rides (see Incident Type H) and, optionally, recommend another Blacklane registered partner to take over the ride.
[7] When a partner accepts a ride, this is a binding contract. In case the partner cannot fulfill the contract, Blacklane will try to support the partner as much as possible, but the additional costs for the backup will be conveyed to the partner. If the partner can provide a stand ­in who is a Blacklane registered partner and who takes the ride for the same price, no handling fee will apply and it will not be considered as an incident. In case Blacklane cannot find a new driver for the ride, it will be considered a no pick­up. Incident Type K will then apply.If there are any questions regarding this overview, please email us at partner@blacklane.com or call us on our partner hotline and choose option 3 in the voice menu.
