5 Tips for Hiring the Best Limousine Service for Your Prom or Bachelorette Party

5 Tips for Hiring the Best Limousine Service for Your Prom or Bachelorette Party

Hiring a limousine is one great way to make your prom, bachelorette party or other event memorable. If you’ve never ridden in one, you can take advantage of such special occasions to splurge on what can be the experience of a lifetime. After all, you have only one wedding day, and one prom. Many people shy away from getting limousines thinking that the costs are prohibitive. However, you’ll be surprised to know that local limousine rides can be very affordable. This is especially true because service is charged per car rather than per person.

This article offers a few important tips to get the best limo service:

  1. Book early

If you’re getting married during peak season, consider that many other bridal parties will be demanding luxury rides both for the ceremony and other parties. Peak seasons for limo services include around holidays, around high school graduation, weekends and in the summer and spring when most weddings are held. Therefore, you should book well in advance to get the best vehicles in the fleet instead of waiting to book at the last minute.

  1. Have your party details

Remember to get all details about party size straight so that you hire the right vehicle capacity. In addition, it is helpful (and may be required) that you inform the company how long you’ll need the car, and the route that will be taken. They’ll need to know whether you need extra service, such as champagne and snacks in the vehicle (for bachelorette parties, not prom). This will help the company to allocate you the best vehicle and driver for your needs.

  1. Bigger is better

Limo service vehicles can accommodate about 8-15 passengers. Of course, bigger vehicles are slightly more expensive than smaller ones. However, the larger your party is, the lower the cost per person. For prom, you can team up with a bunch of friends to lower the cost on each person. Remember that limos are hired per hour and so you can invite the maximum capacity for that vehicle and end up paying the same as you would if you were alone in that vehicle.

  1. Talk about the event

Some service providers will offer you the option of decorating the vehicle according to the theme of the even either as an extra or at an additional cost. If you’re going all out, you may want to take advantage of this service in order to improve your experience. In addition, you may benefit from a few party deals that are often offered in value addition if you share such details.

  1. Reputation is everything

The service provider that you choose is the difference between the best night of your life and the worst night of your life. Ensure that you look up their reputation in places like the BBB and also independent review sites. You want a service that has been serving your locale for a number of years since they will know the best routes to travel depending on your destination and needs.

In addition, highly reputable companies often take care of important details like insurance for you in case anything happens while you’re on the road.

Be sure to tip your chauffer at the end of the evening if they provided exemplary service. This is not a must, but it will certainly make their evening!
