If you are thinking about renting a limo service for a special occasion, but you have never rented one before, you may be a bit confused about how to complete this process. Do not worry – renting a limo is not too different from requesting any type of service. So long as you do things in the right way, you will have a wonderful experience. Here are ten tips about limousine services that should help you book and enjoy your first rental.
- Book in Advance
To ensure that your car and driver are present on time, it is always a good idea to book in advance. We recommend booking a limo service at least one or two days before you need it.
If your friend or family member rented a limo, let them get seated first. There is always one seat in a limo that is referred to as the “VIP seat,” and the person who rented out the limo should get to sit in it!
A limo service is different from renting a taxi or Uber. Your chauffeur will open the door when you have arrived at the destination, so there is no need for you to try and get out on your own.
Even though you can drink, eat and have a wonderful time when you are in a limo, there is no reason to get rowdy. Make sure you are maintaining your elegance and grace, even if you are a little inebriated.
Gratuity for your driver is not included in the limo fee that was provided to you when you booked the car. If you enjoyed your trip and your driver was helpful and courteous, make sure you are repaying the favor with a 15 to 20 percent tip.
- Saving Money
If you are worried about how much a limo will cost, do not stress. Limo services are very affordable – and if you want to save even more money, you can always find discount codes and deals online that will bring the price down even more.
- Travel in a Group
When renting a limo for the first time, it makes sense to enjoy the experience with others. Limos are perfect for traveling in groups of five or six. So if you are planning a night out, or there is a special event, you can all rent a limo together!
- Check Licenses
Ensure the limousine company you are using has information about its licenses online. And it is always a good idea to check your driver’s certification when you enter the vehicle.
- Ask About Amenities
Limousine services are all about giving you a wonderful experience. If you are renting a limo for the first time, enquire about food and drink amenities that may come with your limo.
- Enjoy Yourself
We can understand the stress if you have never rented a limo before. But this is supposed to be a wonderful experience for you. Make sure to enjoy yourself when your limo arrives. Have fun with your friends or family and enjoy the night!
