Our Chauffeurs, Our Service

Every week we get calls from people who have never booked a limousine with us, asking about the services we provide, and the ways it is different than other transportation options – you know, the kind that we often refer to as “amateur car services” or “phone app car services”.  That’s a pretty easy question to answer, and it often surprises people when they hear all the differences.chauffeur 1

First off, when you rent a limousine from us, you’re getting more than just a ride.  You’re getting a stylish, late model luxury vehicle.  And if you choose one of our stretch limousines, luxury coaches or party buses, you’re also getting all the amenities that are included, such as high end multimedia sound systems, TVs, bar and fiber optic lighting – not to mention enough room for 8-40 adults!  Not things you’re going to get from the guy who shows up in his Toyota Corolla.

And speaking of that… we don’t have “drivers”, we have professional chauffeurs.  And there’s a big difference.  The “car service” guys don’t have to abide by the same rules and regulations as limousine services – like different classes of drivers licenses, drug screenings, and P.U.C. regulations.  We do.  And our chauffeurs undergo continuous safety training, as well as training for each vehicle and the various systems in them.  They know their vehicles, so they can get you up to speed on all the controls at the start of your ride.

In general, when you book a limousine from us, you’ll have that same car and chauffeur for the length of your trip.  This means not having to wait for “some guy” to show up when you need to go.  It also means being able to leave personal belongings in the limo in between stops.  And your car will be waiting for you whenever you need to move on to the next destination.

While riding on the limousine, you’re free to indulge in a an adult beverage if you so desire.  Watch a movie, listen to your favorite songs, even close the partition of you desire more privacy.  No concerns about navigating, parking, traffic or drinking and driving.  It really is the ideal way to travel by car.  Good luck doing some of these things with the phone app guys.

airports

Whether it’s a ride to the airport, a night on the town, or something big like a bachelor party, it really is tough to beat a professionally driven limousine.  And if you’re part of a group, the cost is well within reason per person, compared to the alternatives.  Sure, we’re biased – being a limousine service – but when you think about it, it would be hard to disagree.  But don’t take our word for it here, check out our Orange County limo fleet, then submit a free limo price quote request, and see for yourself.  You’ll be glad you did.

Holiday Lights – Limo Style

‘Tis the season, as they say.  No matter your holiday traditions, or religious beliefs, just about everyone can appreciate the wonderful holiday lighting displays in Southern California.  And when it comes impressive holiday lights, it’s hard to beat Orange County.

OC Holiday Lights 1

There are neighborhoods that really go all out, and you really owe it to yourself to see in person this season.  A few examples of these stunning displays can be found below:

Balboa Peninsula

Brea

Buena Park

Huntington Beach

Newport Beach

Laguna Niguel

All of them are worth a visit.  Some of them are even on the water, with extraordinarily decorated boats.  You really can’t go wrong choosing any one of these.

OC Holiday Lights 2

Many of the neighborhoods have dedicated parking areas near the displays, but they fill up quickly, especially on the weekends.  Most of them can be driven through, although be prepared for traffic jams at some locations, which can take a little of the fun out of it.  And that’s where we come in, with something you probably hadn’t thought of before.

OC Holiday Lights 3

We have Holiday light tours available in all parts of the OC.  Get the whole family together, in the back of a luxury stretch limousine, and set out to see several neighborhoods, just a couple, whatever you desire.  No concerns about getting there, parking or traffic.  And best of all, while you’re in the limo listening to your favorite holiday tunes on the stereo, enjoy a “cup of cheer” on the way.  You won’t be driving, so no need to be concerned about the dangers of drinking and driving.

If this sounds like a festive way to spend en evening with family and friends, check out our website for more information on our OC limo fleet, give us a call, or submit your free limo price quote request.  Our limo reservation elves will happily set you up with the perfect holiday lights limousine for the season.

Happy Holidays, and thanks for reading!

 

 

Disneyland Limo?

So you’re planning a trip to Disneyland, but you’re dreading the traffic, the parking, and the ordeal of trying to find your car after a long day of Disney-branded fun?  We’d like to offer a suggestion… why not rent a limousine to handle all of those things, so you and your family can just enjoy your day at the greatest place on earth?  Sure, a limo isn’t going to help you with the long lines at The Haunted mansion, or The Pirates of the Caribbean, but you can always get “Fast Passes” for those!

Disneyland_01

Now we know you have other transportation options if you don’t want to drive yourself, like taxi cabs, or even one of those amateur car services.  But for a large group, those just aren’t going to cut it.  A Disneyland limo is the way to go.  That said… how do you choose the right limousine for your Disney Day?

The first consideration is to figure out how many passengers will be riding along.  A family of 5 could go with an SUV, such as a Chevy Suburban or a Cadillac Escalade.  But if you’re looking for more of a real limo experience, you should consider getting either a Lincoln Town Car stretch limo, or a Chrysler 300 stretch limo.  You’ll turn heads as you pull into the parking lot with either of these beauties.  And they will easily accommodate up to 8 adults.

If you have more than 8 people on your group, an SUV super stretch limousine would be perfect.  Vehicles like the Cadillac Escalade super stretch limo, or the Hummer H2 super stretch limo can hold up to 20 passengers (even more if most of the group is made up of children).

Hummer_H2_limo_01

Once you’ve chosen your limo, you can decide if you just want a pick up and drop off rental, or an hourly rental – where you can keep the limo for the whole day, which makes it convenient to leave your personal belongings in the car, such as souvenirs you picked up during the day, drinks and snacks, and maybe jackets for the evening when things cool down.  Either option is available.

If this sounds like a great way to make your Disney Day even better, then take a look at our OC limousine fleet page, fill out your free limo price quote request, or give us a call.  We’re happy to help you choose the perfect limousine for your day at the park.

15 reasons to rent a limo in LA

Los Angeles is one of the busiest, and most exciting places to visit.  So much to do, so many amazing places to see!  In LA, we “party like rock stars” and want the same treatment as the stars.  So when you want to really see LA, don’t drive yourself.  Riding in a limo is so much better, and here are 15 reasons why…

LA summer

1) You get to ride in a Limo! How fun is that? Something for all ages to enjoy! Right?

2) It gives you a reason to get together with friends or loved ones. Sit back, relax and enjoy each other’s company.

3) Renting a limo gives you an opportunity to celebrate many things: Birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, graduations, engagements, proms, homecoming, scavenger hunts, the list is endless.

Sightseeing in Orange County

If you’re planning a visit to Orange County, in Southern California, you’re probably familiar with the BIG attractions like Disneyland in Anaheim (which is great, and should be on your list), but there are plenty of other things to do while you’re there.  And this holds true for Orange County natives too, not just tourists, as we’re sure many of you life-long residents haven’t really checked out everything that’s out there.

OC_01

Certainly, there are a lot of great destinations near ocean – since a good portion of the OC is near the beach, and that’s what we’ll focus on here.  We’ll start with the Huntington Beach Pier.  Check out the surfers, visit one of the many restaurants, or just enjoy the cool breezes of the Pacific.  You can spend the day there just relaxing and taking it all in.

HB_Pier

Feel more like getting in touch with nature?  Make sure to check out the Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve.  Beautiful wetlands, and an amazing variety bird life.  Walking tours are available, or just explore on your own.

OC_02

After that, head to Newport Beach and hop on the ferry to Balboa Island – a wonderful man-made island featuring upscale shops, restaurants and even an amusement park.  Make a day of it, or stay the night, with plenty of rental options available.

OC_03

Head down to Laguna Beach, and you’ll find Heisler Park.  Rocky shores, and breathtaking views of the Pacific, it’s tough to beat the amazing sunsets, so stick around for that if it fits your schedule.

OC_04

Finally, continue on south, and make your way to the Mission San Juan Capistrano.  Essentially the birthplace of Orange County.  It’s a California Landmark and Museum.   World renowned for the return of the swallows.  The original buildings were constructed by Native Americans in the 18th century.  It’s a remarkable site.

OC_05

We could go on about the wonderful places to visit in Orange County (and we will in future posts), but this is a great way to start.  And of course, if you aren’t up for the navigating and driving yourself, we are happy to arrange a car for your own private tour of these places, or others of your choosing.  Give us a call if you’d like to discuss these OC tour options, or visit our website to see our selection of limousines.  But even if you choose to handle getting there on your own, be sure to enjoy the sights.  You won’t regret it.
