  • The kind of occasion
  • How many passengers
  • How many of pick-up stops
  • Distance from and to the event
  • The amount of time you’ll need the limousine
  • Time and day of pick-up


And also don’t forget what you want! A special occasion might require special features. Don’t hesitate to ask if they have what you want, after all you’re paying a great deal of money for it!


2. Research for Reliable Limousine Company

Now that you know what you want and need, start searching for a limousine company that offer the services and features that you want. Go on the internet or search on the Yellow Pages. List down what you found that suit your preferences and research more about their reputation as a company, licenses and such. Always be wary if you see a little hint of trouble. Do they require more than 50% deposit? Avoid them, they’re probably going to scam the money off your credit card.  Check photos of their limousines beforehand on the internet or go into their office. Also, compare prices from other companies. Limousine rental services is such a competitive business, so look around and get more than one company to choose from.


3. It’s More Than Just a Car That You’re Paying For

A limousine service is more than just the vehicle you sit in. If you rent a limo, you pay for the gasoline among other things. So make sure you state where you really want to go. The limo service estimates how many miles you’d go and roll the fuel fee into its quote.

Also expect to shell out for any road tolls and parking fee. The chauffeur, too, is a big part of a successful limo experience. You’re going to pay for the tip. Make sure you clearly ask after consultation, if the price includes everything you are going to spend on. And also ask these questions about the chauffeur: Does he or she have the right manner for a prom, party wedding? Are they familiar with the route you’ll be taking? Also, one of the most important thing to ask if whether the company checks their drivers.


4. Travel with More than Five Companions

Most limo services charge by car, not by person. And they offer six-passenger, eight-passenger, and/or 10-passenger cars. Since the six-traveler cars are less expensive, you’ll maximize your cash by filling one of those. If you’d like a little bit more room then go ahead and ask for it.

But then again, cheaper isn’t always better. Service is so important to your experience that it may be worth paying a little more for a great company.


5. Limousine Ride can Be a Great Gift On Any Occasion

When you think about a limo, you think extravagance. Riding in a limousine makes an impeccable present for the most special events in life.

You can make it a short ride from the home of the celebrant to restaurant or a long travel which will all rely on upon your financial plan and what you have arranged.
