SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 4, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The most downloaded on-demand valet service app Luxe announces its official expansion in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania marking the company's eighth new market launch since its inception in October 2014. Additionally, Luxe is currently available in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago, Seattle, Boston, New York City and Austin with plans to expand to additional U.S. cities later this year.
"Having lived in Philadelphia, I can personally attest to the difficulties parking in places like Center City and Rittenhouse Square," said Luxe CEO Curtis Lee. "I am thrilled to be bringing Luxe to a city that is consistently rated in the top 10 hardest for commuters. Philly even spawned a reality TV show named Parking Wars, so Luxe is the perfect parking solution for the 600K commuters that come into Philly each day."
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 with a touch of a button. Simply pull up the app on your phone and request a valet when you start your trip. 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 ensuring that you are giving your keys to a Luxe representative. The valet will park your car in a secure lot or garage and can return your car where 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 and also conveniently offers additional services like car washing and refueling.
As of August 4, Luxe's coverage area will include from 21st to 12th Streets and Race to Pine Streets, offering valet service in the majority of Rittenhouse Square, Center City West, Logan Square, Chinatown, Market East and Washington Square West, with plans to expand to more areas in the near future. Current hours are: Monday to Thursday, 7am-10pm; Friday, 7am-11pm; Saturday, 10am-11pm; and Sunday, 10am-5pm. Luxe costs $5 per hour with a maximum of $20 per day. Overnight parking is an extra $10 and additional services are available such as car refuel at $7.99 plus cost of gas and car washes for $25 or $40.
To celebrate its arrival in Philadelphia, Luxe is offering a $20 credit to all new users that use the code "XOXOLUXE".
