Chauffeured Transportation Big Bear

We have clients come to us all the time wanting to get a limo from Los Angeles to Big Bear/Lake Arrowhead. And the first question they normally ask is, “how much does a limo cost from LA to Big Bear?


Our blog’s motto is You Ask, We Answer so here we are. 


Below you’ll find some of the most popular limo options from LA to Big Bear. Just make sure you don't automatically go with the cheapest one. As the old adage goes, "You get what you pay for." 


Standard Stretch Limos 6-20 Passengers


The level of service is what will ultimately determine the cost of renting a standard stretch limo, but you can expect anywhere from $500-$950 one way


However, these stretch limos typically aren’t offered during the winter season, and for good reason. The long wheel-base of these vehicles makes trips in the snow extremely dangerous . If you find companies that are offering stretch limo service around this time of year, then I would use extreme caution. 


Helpful Tip: Airbnb has become very popular as an alternative to motels on the mountain. Also, remember to bring firewood up the hill with you as it can be hard to come by once you're there.


A safer option is taking a sport SUV. These vehicles typically seat 6 passengers and provide decent trunk space for your ski/snow equipment. 



Executive Sport SUVs


Expect to pay between $325-$700 one way when you book an SUV from LA to Vegas. Obviously there's a big difference between a Ford Explorer and a Cadillac Escalade, but again qulaity of service plays a major role on cost.


While SUVs are certainly a safe option for getting to the mountains, they do lack comfort, productivity, and an experience. 


That’s why so many people are choosing to charter luxury Sprinter Vans from Los Angeles to Big Bear. These vans simply provide more value and more experience to families/groups looking to enjoy a few days at Bear Mountain or Snow Summit.


Chauffeured Luxury Sprinter Vans
