A limousine service can add a wonderful touch to many types of function. It can even be a great and stylish way to get yourself to the airport! So if you’re wondering if it will break the bank, just keep reading.
From airport to prom.
Of course, the distance you’re intending to travel will have a huge impact on the overall cost of your limo rental services. There’s a few other things, though, that will have an equal impact. Firstly, the type of car you’re hiring will have equal impact. Do remember that most airport services are basically taxis, so if you’re hoping for a true limousine service, make sure that’s what you’re hiring at the time you book. It can be a pretty cost effective transportation when split over several people, and sedan services will start at around $20 with stretch services starting at about $50.
You’ll generally be hiring a 2-3 hour service, and costs will vary between $50 and $300 per hour for normal parties. Think of it as hiring a hotel room- the star of service, quality and price difference will impact to overall experience. It’s a lightly regulated industry, so make sure you know what you’re getting and not getting. In general, you won’t be able to make a 1 hour rental, due mainly to feasibility and maintenance required for these big and dramatic vehicles. AQ lot of time is required to prepare the limo service- and it also partly accounts for driver safety to ensure they are not involved in illegitimate situations.
How big is a stretch limo service?
Not all stretch limos are the same length. When you hire your limo rental, you can get everything from a 6 passenger to an 18 passenger super stretch limo. Larger passengers will need to give a little consideration to the capacity of the limo at the time of booking. For maximum comfort, you generally should opt for a limo with a maximum capacity 2 passengers higher than your party.
What should be included with your limousine service?
This important question is one it’s vital to understand from the get go. Start by asking for the ‘all inclusive’ price, so that you don’t get extra charges tacked on for made up things like waiting time, beverages or fuel surcharge. You want to know the total fare from the start- and don’t forget to allow for sales tax for your state, too. It’s going to be even more vital if you’re being kind enough to rent a limo for a 3rd party in situations like weddings. Do remember that your driver is a worker in the service industry, and consider tipping them around 20% of the fare when you leave the vehicle.
You should be OK to drink in a limousine [provided you are over the minimum age] so long as you are not operating it. Don’t try and wangle out of paying for the limo rental’s standing time, if you’re at a function or barhopping. Your rental is the time between check out and in. If you’ll be inside the venue for longer than 6 hours, the company may allow for a split service [think of it rather like a pickup and a drop off service] however. You may not get the same car on return, and will need to take your belongings with on exit.visit their official website at http://www.pr.com/press-release/619223 for more additional information.
Limo rental services are not as arduous or expensive as you may think.
