Trip Report: Santa Barbara, California pt.2

Picking up car at hertz:

This was a pretty standard pick up in my opinion.  The only thing that was a problem was that when I booked the trip through JetBlue getaways it removed my eligibly for the hertz gold. This was a little inconvenient (although not very).  I still went into the “vip” section anyway and the rest of the rental process was standard

Santa Barbara

We drove from Lax to Santa Barbara. We took the more inland route and planned to take the more coastal route on the way from Santa Barbara to lax after our wedding.

Trip Report: Santa Barbara, California

Flying to lax from JFK on JetBlue:

Got to the airport right around 6am this morning for a 7am fight for a wedding in Santa Barbara this weekend. My friends had gotten there a bit earlier and where already through security at the gate.

When I travel, especially domestically, I have a little trick which I use to help me get front row seating and some other benefits (on JetBlue you get a priority line for security and priority boarding at the gate). I can’t share this trick with you though. I’m going to keep it as my little secret… sorry
