We’ve put together a guide to help you navigate all of the seemingly endless options.

Legitimate Or Phony? How To Validate Your Limo Service

Always: Go With A Validated Limo Rental Service

A limousine service is legally required to carry certain licenses and insurance.

  • Research requirements in your area and ask the company for proof of compliance.

A good company will have nothing to hide and should have no problem explaining what certificates they hold.

Go Local: Make Sure That The Company Serves Your Area

When booking a limousine hire, it is very important that you consider the company’s service area early on.

  • If not, you may get your heart set on a package only to find out that the service is not available for your pickup location.

It would be an awful shame to have to redo all of the hard work you put into planning your special event.

Safe And Sound: Safety & Security Of A Professional Chauffeur

No matter how far you plan to travel, the right type of driver is just as important as picking the best luxury cars or the perfect outfit.

A chauffeur isn’t just a driver.

  • A stranger from Uber could pick you up in a fancy car, but it wouldn’t be the same.
  • A professional chauffeur has gone through extensive training to get a special type of license.

Also, consider that someone who drives for a living is going to be much more skilled than someone who is just trying to make a few extra bucks.

  • Black car service also gives you the security of dark tinted windows, so that no one can see who is inside.
  • This protects the rider whether you are a VIP or headed to a high-profile event.

An Experience Like No Other: A One-of-a-Kind Limousine

Any activity feels a little more special when a limousine rental is part of the experience.

Some occasions are special in their own right, like:

You can really make your loved one’s day by surprising them with a stretch limousine that they weren’t expecting.

Consider booking a limo service to turn any outing into a momentous occasion. Need ideas?:

  • Milestones, like anniversaries or birthdays
  • Surprise your spouse with a limo ride to dinner and a movie.
  • Throw your child an epic sweet sixteen party with a minibar stocked full of all the sodas and a premium sound system programmed with their favorite music.
  • Holiday gifts
  • Book a luxury car and a spa package for a few special ladies in your life.
  • Treat Dad and his buddies with a chauffeured ride to the golf club.

Limo Car Fact:
The chauffeured meaning has an interesting history. Today, the word is typically associated with drivers for luxury travel. However, the term chauffeur originally referred to a motorist, in general. This was because the driver had to literally stoke the steam engines of early motor vehicles.

Make Sure The Price Is Right!

You know your budget better than anyone else. If you feel pressured to take on more than your wallet will allow, you may want to explore other options.

Here are a few things to consider when negotiating your price:

How Many People Are In Your Party?

  • If you are arranging transportation for five people, you don’t need a 15-passenger van.
  • Unlike a taxi service, you are paying for the use of the car itself rather than the number of people on board.

What Types Of Amenities Do You Prefer?

  • Do you want a premium sound system?
    • If you really want to rock out during your ride, you may want a more high-end vehicle with all the audio bells and whistles.
  • Some vehicles come with a DVD player.
  • If you’re ready to go all-out, your party-mobile can be stocked to the gills with drinks and snacks for the ultimate pre-party.
  • Popping bottles at the minibar is definitely a luxury experience.
    • What you might not realize is that you may be charged for each opened top.
      • If you’re on a tight budget, ask if the limo will come “iced” and if you can fill the coolers yourself.

Check Out The Fleet

Ideally, you should be able to check out your prospective limo service fleet in person. At the minimum, check out the company’s website to see what kind of vehicles it offers.

Pay Particular Attention To Detail & Matienence 

  • Take a good look at the limousine interior. You don’t want to be able to see visible signs of wear and tear inside a limo or to the exterior.

Pick The Vehicle That Suits You

  • There are many options when it comes to luxury vehicles.
  • Some companies may deal only with limousines, while others offer everything from sedans to motor coaches.
