SAN FRANCISCO, July 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The most downloaded on-demand valet service app Luxe, today announces its official expansion into Austin, Texas. This city marks the company's seventh new market launch since its inception in October 2014. Additionally, Luxe is available in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago, Seattle, Boston and New York City with plans to expand to Philadelphia and Washington D.C. later this year.
Luxe is currently available in the Downtown area including Rainey Street with plans for further expansion. Current hours are: Monday to Thursday, 7am-9pm; Friday, 7am-10pm; Saturday, 10am-10pm; and Sunday, 10am-6pm, with plans to extend in more areas in the near future. Luxe costs $4 per hour with a maximum of $16 per day. Overnight parking is an extra $10.
CEO Curtis Lee said "I'm excited to be launching in Austin, a city that I've lived in and fell in love with. Austin is one of the most progressive cities in the US and constantly growing. With the increasing population and car culture of the city, we hope to solve the challenge of finding parking."
Armed with a mission to relieve customers of the time consuming frustrations associated with urban parking, Luxe offers a simple solution: on-demand valet service at the touch of a button. Simply pull up the app on your phone and request a valet before you get into your car. Luxe will monitor as you get closer to your destination and a valet in a blue polo shirt or jacket will meet you there (you'll know it's them because their name and photo show up in the app so you can be sure you're giving your keys to a Luxe representative). The valet will then park your car and can return it where and when you request it - even if it's in a different location from where you started. Luxe ensures the most convenient and safe way to manage your car around the city and also offers additional services like car washing and refueling.
Ideal for the many businesses downtown who have lost their parking spaces due to the influx of new companies and people moving to Austin daily, Luxe also offers two convenient and cost effective monthly packages. Its Commuter Package offers users five "ins and outs" per week at $249/month while its Monthly Unlimited offers unlimited requests seven days a week for $299/month.
To celebrate its arrival in Austin, Luxe is offering a $20 credit to all users that sign up using the code "DONTMESS" (with Texas, of course).
