Business and Pleasure

On occasions, my husband takes overnight business trips. To prevent loneliness, he often invites me to go along with him. Whenever I discover what city we will be visiting, I immediately start researching it. For instance, I map out landmarks we’ve never seen, restaurants with good reviews, entertainment options, and hotels that look appealing. By the time we get in the car, board the plane, or get on the train, every minute of our trip is already planned out. If your spouse travels frequently for work, consider mixing business with pleasure from time to time. On this blog, you will discover how to make the most of an upcoming business trip.

Unique Features To Look For When Getting An LAX Car Service

Delores Tucker

If you need a ride to or from the airport, a car service provides that. That means that you don't have to drive your own car to the airport and pay expensive daily parking fees. Or, that prevents you from having to rent a car in a city you are unfamiliar with when vacationing in that city. If you are getting a car service at LAX, there are many features you want to consider when selecting a service. The type and size of car are very important, as is price. However, there are a few unique features that some car services offer that are also important, yet not as well known. Here are few of the more unique features you should consider when getting an LAX car service.


Many car services are starting to offer smoke-free vehicles. This is an important feature to look for if you hate the smell of smoke or are traveling with someone who has a sensitivity to smoke, such as a person with asthma. Likewise, if you are a smoker, you may want to pay attention to what companies only offer smoke-free vehicles, as you may wish to avoid them if you want to smoke between the airport and your hotel or home. It is important to note that California has enacted a smoke-free car law. If you have anyone traveling with you in the car under the age of 18, you cannot smoke with them in the car. This is something to keep in mind if you are a smoker and don't have this law in your state.


More people than ever are traveling with their pets. And while service animals are always allowed in a car service's car, not all car services allow personal pets. This is because your pet may have an accident that the car service doesn't want to clean up, or because people are allergic to pets, so they don't want to limit their base by offering service to pets.

If you are traveling with your pet, it is very important that you make sure the car service you are looking to book with will transport both you and your pet. However, it is important to note that not all car insurance will cover your pet if there is an accident while you are both using the car service. This is important to keep in mind, just in case there is an accident and your pet is injured.

If you are allergic to pets, you will want to make sure the car service you use is not pet-friendly, or at the very least, offers pet-free cars to those with allergies.


There are many family-oriented activities around LAX. Some activities include Disneyland, Universal Studios and Knott's Berry Farm. As such, many children are flying into and out of LAX on a daily basis. If you have a child traveling with you, you may want to look for a child-friendly car service.

Traffic in Southern California can be at a dead stand-still during peak times. Unfortunately, even if you don't have far to go, it can take a while to get there when traffic is slow. This means children can get antsy and anxious, especially after having sat on a plane for some time. To make things easier on drivers, parents and children, some car services offer cars with televisions that play children's cartoons or that have tablets that children can play with as they sit in the car.

Additionally, most child-friendly car services will offer child safety seats in their vehicles, so you don't have to worry about lugging your child's car seat with you while on vacation.

On-Time Guarantees

The last unique feature that some car services have begun offering is an on-time guarantee service. This means that the car service is at your home, hotel or airport at the agreed upon time, or your car service is discounted or free.  Knowing that you will be compensated for your time if your driver is a little late can be a huge perk.

If you are flying into or out of LAX, a car service can give you a ride so you don't have to pay to park your car at the airport, use an expensive taxi service, or rent a vehicle. Learning about the features that a car service offers, such as smoke-free cars, pet-friendly vehicles, child-friendly vehicles and on-time guarantees, can help you select the car service that will best meet your needs.
