LUXY: Creating a Better Trip to the Airport

New disruptive discount premium ride service offers stress-free, nationwide airport transportation
with cutting-edge technology, professional drivers and 24/7 live support

Leveraging its growing network of curated local and regional premium car service providers and proprietary booking technology, LUXY™, a new concept in airport transfers, matches riders with available black car “empty leg” inventory – providing discounted rates and a stress-free airport travel nationwide.

LUXY offers an easy app-based booking and tracking experience – similar to popular ride-hailing applications – but sets the bar higher. Unlike the major ride-hailing apps that rely on part-time drivers and personal vehicles, every LUXY ride is driven by a licensed professional in a newer, safety-inspected premium Sedan or SUV ensuring a reliable, comfortable, and safe journey to and from airports nationwide. Travelers receive quotes and book rides via the LUXY website, the free LUXY Ride mobile app, or by calling LUXY’s 24/7 live customer representatives.

Travelers are rewarded for planning ahead with Clear View™ Pricing, a system that guarantees optimal rates at the time of booking. All prices and fees are built into the upfront quote, and prices are consistently 30% lower than premium ride-hailing rates, especially on longer routes. LUXY makes it convenient for travelers to schedule and manage their trip using the booking method they’re most comfortable with: via the app, website or phone.

“The reality in this industry is that more than 80% of all black car rides to/from the airport are returning empty. LUXY is determined to fix this imbalance so that drivers, car service companies and travelers greatly benefit from efficient and affordable airport rides,” said LUXY CEO Joe Salemme. “LUXY aspires to do for the car transportation industry what Priceline did for airlines and hotels – optimize unused inventory,” he added.

With the new technology, LUXY seeks to breathe new life into the premium car transportation industry.

“While ride-hailing companies pioneered convenience through the seamless integration of transportation and technology, we are improving upon this foundation to eliminate their shortcomings related to airport transfers. By filling empty premium car inventory, LUXY has combined an innovative booking platform to connect customers with untapped premium car inventory offering a better service experience for less money” said Bill Van Wyck, President and CTO of LUXY.
