LOS ANGELES, May 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- While ride-sharing apps like Uber and Lyft have snatched quite a bit of the transportation market share from conventional taxi services, predictions that these companies will also take a big bite out of the the car rental industry have fallen flat. Specifically, experts on a variety of investment websites, such as Seeking Alpha, have recently dispelled the myth that these services spell trouble for car rental companies. Luxury Line Auto Rental, a prominent Beverly Hills luxury car rental provider, notes that the experience the agency provides its customers differs so greatly from the needs of a ride-sharing customer, that any competition is unlikely. Here are three reasons why customers are turning to car rental companies like Luxury Line Auto Rental instead of ride-sharing apps:

  1. Luxury Options – While different ride-sharing companies have devised various offshoot services that are aimed at consumers seeking luxury services, none of them can hold a candle to the offerings available at Luxury Line Auto Rental. In their fleet are some of the world's finest vehicles including the 2015 Rolls Royce Ghost and the Ferrari California. In addition to these truly top-of-the line, exotic luxury vehicles, they also offer clients more standard luxury options including a Mercedes Benz SL550 Roadster or BMW 328i rental in Beverly Hills.
  2. Convenience – Although some ride-sharing apps like to bill themselves as the most convenient transportation option, they often fail to deliver when it comes to making things easy for customers, especially during off-hours. While car service from companies like Uber and Lyft are readily available during peak weekend hours in the most densely populated areas of Los Angeles, anyone attempting to find a car during off-hours or from somewhere on the outskirts of LA County may find themselves waiting around for far too long before a driver finally agrees to go out of their way to pick them up. With a rental car from Luxury Line Auto Rental, travelers can leave exactly when they decide to leave, and have full control over their travel and transportation.
  3. Value – Finally, while these services bill themselves as the cheaper alternative to conventional taxis, that doesn't mean they are actually cheap. Depending on the vehicle that customers choose to rent from Luxury Line Auto Rental, it may only take a few trips across town with a ride-sharing service to surpass the daily cost of a rental. Many customers find that a Mini Cooper rental in Beverly Hills from Luxury Line Auto Rental is a great way to enjoy a fun and sporty ride at an affordable daily or weekly rate.

While ride-sharing apps may be a great option for a night out to a bar, they are no substitute for the convenience, value, and true luxury that customers count on when seeking out transportation for their next trip to Los Angeles, or when having to replace a car that is in the shop.
