There are just some occasions or destinations wherein your average everyday car just won’t cut it. Sometimes, it is necessary to arrive in style, in order to make a striking impression, or to simply just have a good time and make the whole ride memorable. For these special instances, there is nothing more perfect than a limousine service. Limousines often beget images of red carpets and Hollywood stars, but any person who can make the investment for his or her own will find that the special limo service will be so worth it. But before you pick up the phone and call your local limousine company, here are some things that you can consider before choosing your limousine service:


  1. Where is your destination? Limousines of present day are a far cry from the traditional long – hooded limousines we see in movies: there now are many kinds of limos, ranging from classic styles to revamped SUVs. You can select the kind of limo you want, depending on the destination, the theme, and the people present at the event you are attending. Brand new vehicles would usually fetch higher rental rates than models several years old. But sometimes, the classic look of a vintage vehicle is just what you need, so it is all up to you.

2. How long will your trip be? If you’re going to pass through the city, chances are you will be stuck in some slow traffic. Your limo service can provide for nice touches to make these possible situations more pleasurable – things such as meals, complimentary bottles of bubbly, DVD movies, or simply a dock for your iPod. You can opt to add or remove these services depending on your preference or how practical you want to go. Sometimes, just relishing the smell of luxurious leather seats is satisfying enough, but of course, getting to drink wine on the road makes everything so much more posh.

3. How many people will be riding your limo? The smallest limousines can accommodate up to four people, the largest stretch ones can comfortably sit up to twelve passengers. Of course, the rental prices for each would rise according to size, so you can keep this in mind if you were thinking of renting a stretch limo for an intimate date for two. If you are about to take a party of up to 18 people, you have the option of renting a super tricked-up SUV limousine.


It would not hurt to get to know your limo company before securing a rental. Peruse the cars in their garage, familiarize yourself with a list of their rates, ask about the experience and versatility of their chauffeurs and staff. It will lessen the hassle and help you ensure that your ride will be perfect.
