Not So Regular: This rideshare company offers luxury rides

It sounds like an opening sequence to the most ubiquitous dream. However, Goldsainte is here to turn your dream into a reality with their service which lets you experience the lavish comfort of a super luxury car. Goldsainte is a startup in North Carolina, as reported by The Charlotte Observer, that has an app for users to get luxury rides such as Mercedes Maybach or Rolls-Royce Cullinan, for prices that can go up to $149 per ride. “It was all about providing access and opportunity. Generally, there’s not a lot of population of people who have access to these cars,” said Andre Powell, the company founder. “There’s a lot of communities that don’t have access to this. It’s all about access and opportunity for us to provide a service.” The service is easy to use and works similarly to Uber or Lyft. Currently, the company has a total of four luxury vehicles: the Bentley Flying Spur, the Mercedes S Class Maybach, the Rolls-Royce Cullinan, and the Bentley Bentayga. Users are free to book either via the company’s website or on their own mobile app. You get to choose the vehicle you want, the pick-up time, as well as your destination.

Users may customize their trips. A rider, for example, might select an hour-long tour, a round-trip, or a single destination drop-off. You also get the option to make multiple stops en route to your destination. Furthermore, riders may further choose their music, car temperature, and even order food and drinks. Rides can be booked from an hour to months in advance as well. The most noticeable and biggest difference in the Goldsainte service is the membership component. The company promotes itself as the “world’s first ground transportation membership club.” The membership comes with a horde of perks but it comes at a cost. A quite heavy cost in fact. To get started, a one-time $249 charge is required. After two years, you'll be charged $25 every month. The average hourly charge for using the vehicles is $99 per ride, while non-members pay $149 per ride. Goldsainte has further plans to expand to other places such as L.A., Dallas, Washington D.C., and New York.
