You’ve done this at LAX:

You’re waiting with the masses at customs, feeling jet lagged, hungry, and hung over, lugging a bag with a laptop and seven magazines, and your eyes are throwing darts at the privileged peeps gliding through the quick-pass lane that automatically checks citizens back into the U.S. We’re telling you, at those little Global Entry kiosks, there are birds chirping and villagers dancing. Well, now U.S. Customs and Border Protection has brought that same service to SAN and will deliver you back into the U.S. in five minutes or less—or your pizza is free (kidding about the pizza). $100 to apply. globalentry.gov

Your Network has Expanded!

Who needs Hertz? Car2go, the “world’s largest all-electric vehicle car sharing network,” now offers membership priveleges in Austin, D.C., Portland and Miami. Almost like you never left home. car2go.com
