Many people want to travel in luxury especially when going to places they have never been. Luxury travelling is one of the pleasures in life that cannot be described and is only for the travel enthusiasts. One of the things that you can do to transport in luxury yet not pay a fortune is to hire cheap limo service. Some people think of limos as a expensive mode of transportation that they cannot afford, however they are mistaken. In many places, limousine costs are not expensive and can easily be negotiated. If you are a bunch of people you can actually rent a limo for a day and share the costs and that would usually not be very pricy per person. You can use the limo to stop at different locations, drink and have fun and use it all day. If you would be comparing its costs with regular transportation and given that you are a bunch of people, it would usually not be as expensive as what you would think it is.
Most limousine companies actually reduce their prices when you are renting it for a long time or paying cash. This mode of transportation is affordable because you will save on parking, on tour buses, time, and best of all you will have your own private driver that you can use the whole day in that package. If you are also taking a long distance drive, limos most of them nowadays are equipped with TV, wi-fi, fridge and all the newest technologies.
Another luxury cheap mode of transportation is a private is to rent your own high-end mini-bus. A high-end mini bus usually can come with a driver and most limo companies can offer you that as well. The mini-bus is an excellent way to travel because it allows you to be with your group in a private setting and control where you go and how long you stay in any place. It is usually as well equipped with the latest and has amazingly comfortable seats that you can enjoy. Make sure to always negotiate deals as these modes are luxurious and often forgotten about.
Last but not least, you can always as well negotiate with a taxi for the day to take a flat fee and he can also take you anywhere you would want and wait for you. Usually they are open to this kind of negotiation if they don’t belong to a cab company and are working on their own. This will mean you get your own driver and car and you wont worry about driving or parking. In most cases, they can tour you around and be amazingly nice hosts in their own country when they know you are from out of town.
One of the best ways to open your mind and really get a different perspective on life is through traveling. Going abroad is a great way to really understand what other cultures and places have to offer. Traveling overseas can be expensive and dangerous so the tips below will help prepare you for any foreign travel you help planned.
- Use the ATM
- Don’t over-schedule
- Know where embassies are
- Pack smarter
- Have backup maps
When traveling abroad use the ATM for small pocket change rather than exchanging your cash at local banks. This method can help you save money over the banks exchange rate on smaller amounts that may defeat the purpose. Larger amounts of money is better than smaller amounts for just pocket change.
When planning for an overseas vacation don’t over-schedule your trip. While this may be your first time overseas and there will be undoubtedly a lot you want to see, you want to make sure that you have some time just to experience the place with any scheduled activities. Many times you will find gems when you do not have all of you time scheduled and that is a good way to explore the new location you are in without time constraints.
You should always make note to know where the embassies are located in your destination location. Your first job before getting on a plane, train or automobile to go abroad is to contact the Embassy so they know where you are going, where you are staying and how long you will be there. This will help in the unfortunate event that a tragedy happens.
When traveling abroad you want to make sure that you adhere to the weight requirements and pack smarter. You should plan to have extra room in your luggage to bring items back since chances are you will want to buy items of you overseas expedition. Also keeping your luggage light helps you to maneuver around easier when you are at your destination.
Technology is here to stay but we all know it is sometimes not reliable, so you should plan to have printed backup maps. It is always a good idea to have a physical map on hand if the signal from your mobile device is not strong or you cannot access the area you had before. Good ole’ printed paper maps still have their place especially when you are in a foreign country and you’re lost.
Traveling abroad can be exciting but you have to remember to research the area you are visiting and prepare yourself for any possible issues that may come up. It is impossible to know everything that might happen on your trip but it is best to prepare for the any eventual event that you can.
Means of transportation has definitely evolved since the beginning of mankind. It all started way back, when the first civilization discovered the wheel….obviously because they were tired of walking every where. So now we have this wheel which can roll around pretty easily with out much effort. Then someone had the bright idea….hey….why don’t we ride animals. I bet there was a lot of trial and error in finding all the right animals to ride such as horses, elephants, and so on. Im certain that there had to be some people eaten during those trials when they were trying to ride animals such as lions, tigers, and who knows what else. As humans continued evolving so did transportation.
That brings us to the wonderful world of automobiles. We all know about good ole Henry Ford to whom we have to think for creating the first automobile. Now look at us today, driving everything from bicycles, scooters, trucks, cars, and limos. Speaking of limos I wonder who came up with that idea and what made them think of that. Were they in a car and just said….hey, lets make this car longer.
All I know is that limos are cool, especially the ones with cool lights and all the fancy gadgets.
We definitely can’t forget the evolution of transportation in regards to traveling by air. Even though I’ve only flown in an airplane 2 times in my whole life, I got to say that it was a good experience. I was definitely nervous at first but quickly got over my fear of flying. Speaking of flying, what about space travel. Now that’s what I’m talking about. Being able to strap in humongous spaceship and zoom off into outer space at blazing speeds has got to be such an adrenaline rush.
Of course we can also travel by water. Speaking of traveling by water, I’ve never been on a cruise, I know, I know, I’m missing out so people have told me. I think if I was going to go on a cruise, it would definitely have to be on a disney cruise. Anyways, to make a long story short, transportation has definitely evolved throughout history in an awesome way.
Alright, this is hands down one of the funniest limo stories that you will ever hear!
A few years back, I was lucky enough to be asked to be a bridesmaid in not one, not two, but THREE weddings all in the same summer! And being that I live in the midwest, where everyone gets married in the summer, all three weddings were within a five week span.
Needless to say, I was a little tired of trying on dresses, getting them altered, and pulling out my wallet to pay for it all.
When it came to the last wedding, I was exhausted. I’d put countless flowers in bridesmaids hair, I’d been to grooms dinners, rehearsal dinners, bridal luncheons, bachelorette parties, I’d been auctioned off, I’d walked up and down the rehearsal aisle, sang one too many songs of karaoke, I’d been to hair salons, nail salons, and saloon after saloon to celebrate it all.
I’d done tequila shots, blow job shots, jello shots, pudding shots, slippery nipples, buttery nipples, you name, I did it! I was starting to feel like a one trick pony. What was my talent? Weddings, and not my own!
So there I was, it was the night before the last wedding. I hopped in my car and drove three hours to attend the grooms dinner and spend that final night with the bride to be. After searching the local grocery store for a decent razor so she wouldn’t look like a wooly mammoth on her wedding night, I finally felt like I could relax. Just one more photo shoot. Just one more night of wearing spanx. Just one more night of dancing with creepy old men. Just one more night till it was through.
And it was on that final night that the bride to be asked me, “Did you remember to alter your dress?”
The answer: NO!
After trying on dress after dress, going to photo shoot after photo, dinner after dinner, and having countless shots along the way… I’d forgotten to get the last bridesmaid dress altered.
“Oh well I thought, how bad could it really be?” I just needed the shoulders taken up and inch or two.
The dress made through the final photo shoot, it made it down the aisle, it witnessed the vows and the kiss, it made it back up the aisle, and that final dress even got me into the limo.
I’d been hiking and holding that damn dress up all day and was relieved to finally sit down in the limousine and relax. I’d done it! I’d done three weddings in five weeks. Not only was I ready to toast the bride and the groom, but I was ready to toast to myself. I’d put on more fake smiles and fake eyelashes then I could count. I had done it and I was ready to get down and celebrate!
The wedding party cracked open a couple of bottles of bubbly, filled up the fancy limo champagne flutes and we did a toast to the bride and the groom. We all raised up our arms to clink our glasses and give a cheers!
It was when our arms were raised that things got a little strange. I looked around at everyone while we were toasting to clink our glass and I noticed everyone was looking at me and not the bride and the groom.
“That’s strange” I thought. “Why are they all looking at me? Is one of these damn eyelashes falling off again?” So I raised my arm to check my eyelash and it was fine. “Well, what they heck?”
All of the sudden, I felt a slight breeze and I quickly realized that it was not my eyelashes that everyone was looking at. Everyone in that limo was staring a little further south than my face.
So, I looked up and noticed that this limo had a mirror running the entire length of the ceiling.
And what did I see when I looked in the mirror?
Me and big ole’ size Ds hanging right out and over the top of my unaltered dress!
Yes, I had flashed the entire wedding party! Creepy groomsmen who’d been trying to get with me for weeks included!
Was I humiliated… YES!
Was I completely red in the face… YES!
So what did I do? What any other worn bridesmaid would do. I went on with the toast. Took that well deserved sip of shitty limo champagne, well come to think of it… I may have slammed the entire glass, before tucking the ladies back in where I am happy to say they stayed for the rest of the night.
If you are looking into a zip line tour while on your Hawaiian vacation, there are certain considerations you should be aware of. To be sure you end up with the greatest Hawaiian zip line tour experience, review the following points to choose the tour best suited to you.
What part of the island in Hawaii is the tour located on? You may not want to travel all the way to the North Shore if you are staying in Waikiki.
How long is the tour and what is the length of the course? This could be a personal preference as far as how long you would feel comfortable hanging on the zip line. Another factor to be aware of is whether the course is one continuous ride or are there stops along the way.
Is the zip line course varied, for example with jungle tropical sections and wide open sections with awesome views. Or is it only one or the other. Do you prefer a certain scenic environment over another?
Is the tour double or single ride? Can you ride alongside your friend or companion or is their just one zip line where everyone rides behind each other? Double ride is mostly predominant, but check it out to be sure.
What is the speed of the zip line? Speed can vary widely. You could be looking at 10 – 15 mph or some are extreme over 80 mph. Another speed consideration is whether you will be required to hand brake of whether the braking system is self regulated and in conjunction with the course design does not require any braking on your part. This is the optimal system which allows you to only worry about enjoying the scenery and ride.
Zip line tours will have health and weight requirements. Depending on the course location, you may be required to hike in a certain ways and will need to be in shape to take that on. In addition you will need to withstand hanging from the zip line for the length of the course/ride. The weight requirement will vary based on the design and zip line equipment in place. Don’t forget to check minimum age if you have youngsters along.
Safety goes without saying. It should be a given but feel free to question what safeguards are in place for peace of mind.
Obviously cost is a big consideration, but you don’t want to base your decision solely on this. Remember the old adage – ‘you get what you pay for’. Factor this into your zip line tour decision but consider all the above criteria as well.
If you do your homework the zip line tour will be one of the most memorable events of your vacation… that is, unless you take a limo to their zip line tour; then it’ll be the 2nd most memorable event.
In the corporate world, there are a lot of things that a businessman must need to take in consideration. These things range from the marketing strategies to boost up sales to looking for investors to finance their projects and for broadening their companies. If there are ways on how a businessman promotes his wares to the buyers, there are also methodical ways to ensure an investor’s agreement to the proposal. For one, it is important to make sure of the client’s comfort particularly in accommodation and his transportation prior to that. As the saying goes, first impressions last.
Renting a limo for business purpose is not for luxury intentions only. Mostly, these are for conveniences. Most of the time, when businessmen are already tired and weary because of their activities, they tend to become easily irritated. Hence, it may result to them finding faults in your proposal whatsoever. But with good travel means, they get to relax and relieve their minds from stressful thoughts. With the great improvements now in the field of transportation, you no longer have to worry about giving your potential investor the time to invigorate. Limo rentals for business purposes are only a step away from your office.
Airport hassles are one of the major complaints of VIPs. With the fast and good services of rented cars, your business is also not put into hassle. You can easily pick up your business associate with the rented vehicle instead of hiring someone to standby and identify the person you are dealing with. This may result to confusions and arguments. Also, your presence is not required. You can easily tell your client about the type of limo that will be waiting for him at the airport and there, you only have to prepare your proposal. No hassle, very efficient.
There are times when you are also very busy and won’t have the time to wait for the plane to land at the airport and drive your client to a restaurant or to your office. You cannot simply relegate that task to anyone because there might be the chance that in trying for small talk, your business is being put to jeopardy by the man you sent. So a recommended setup is to have your client be fetched by a limo rented. This will give you more time to be prepared.
First-class transportation services allow for more productivity. You might be inviting not just one investor but a number of them. Well, a limo is appropriate to be used since it can accommodate more than one passenger with still rooms for comfort. You can also be the one to personally fetch them. This way, you will have the advantage of relaxing in the limo before they even arrive. Furthermore, you can utilize the time of your travel by discussing or implying your proposal. This is just like hitting two birds with one stone. You’re not just impressing them but also starting to stimulate their minds to the business to be discussed.
