Giveaway: Arrive in the Black – $100 Prestige Black Car Gift Card Giveaway

Over the weekend I got a chance to partner with Prestige Transportation Edmonton for a one-day Black Car adventure helping celebrate the company’s new, more affordable rates!

Until recently, the City of Edmonton required a minimum $75 charge for all Prestige black car rides (no matter how long or short the distance). As you can imagine, that minimum fee turned away a lot of potential riders.

Now however, for the first time – there is no minimum fee to take a black car in Edmonton!

That means you can travel in style (think Harvey Specter from Suits style) with Prestige’s black sedans/SUVs – in more everyday situations instead of what might have been a splurge with their minimum fees in the past.

Being driven around in a Prestige car made us feel fancy AF.

Mike, my mom and I got the Prestige experience first-hand on Saturday with our Prestige driver Sid.

We took the car to get Mike’s hair cut, pick up some tools at Rona, stop for a delicious lunch at Nomiya’s new Noodle Bar, grab a replacement battery for my car starter at Best Buy, and finally Sid dropped us off at our friend Chris and Jenn’s for ‘Friendsgiving’ dinner!

We arrived at Nomiya’s new Noodle Bar during our Prestige adventure!

With Prestige, you don’t just show up – you arrive and that’s certainly how we felt arriving at these everyday stops in a fancy black sedan.

It was also great spending the day with Sid! He’s been working with Prestige for 20 years and is an awesome driver.

Here’s what the new rates look like for some trips you might take in Edmonton:

Pick up and drop off


After Sedan


St. Albert to Downtown



Over $10.00 in savings

Windermere to Whyte Ave



Over $30.00 in savings

Valleyview to Whyte Ave



Over $30.00 in savings

Sherwood Park to Downtown



Over $10.00 in savings

Mike and I took a town car once in New York on our honeymoon a few years ago and being chauffeured around the city by Sid in this Prestige car had a really similar vibe. It’s nice to know we don’t need to go to some far-away place to get that feeling again!
With all the different transportation services popping up in the city, the elimination of that minimum fee should mean a lot more people get to use Prestige’s sedan/SUV service.

    I would take it to the gym, then go for lunch, and then shopping and leave all the bags in the car!

  • I would love to win. My husband & I have season tix to the citadel so we would definitely use the black car service for dinner & a show!

  • Argenplath says:

    I would definitely use this for a “fancy” event because arriving in the black seems most appropriate when you’re all dolled up for a gala or wedding. I also completed all the entries.

  • Monica I. says:

    Definitely would use it for a nice night out with the girls!
