Tips on how to pick the best limousine for your target event? There are many sides to make a good limo rental experience. Limousine and Party Bus Rental Packages: A package is often the best choice for special occasions like weddings, concerts, prom, sporting events or other ride types with a predictable start and end time. Packages will generally provide a set number of hours, in a vehicle that fits your party size and event for a fixed, all-inclusive price. Some companies offer packages for every type of service and most give substantial “bulk rate” price breaks.
Look for signs of trouble: According to the USA Limo Guide, “The law requires all limousine rental companies to arrange for proper private hire insurance.” But “some companies evade insuring their vehicles and occupants as its an expensive overhead.” And, of course, the chauffeurs need to have chauffeur’s licenses. Ask for proof of both. Other omens… Avoid a limo company that requires more than a 50 percent deposit. For my wife’s present, one company demanded full payment in advance. I said thanks-but-no-thanks and hung up. USA Limo Guide says, “Generally, a deposit of 20-50 percent of the total rental fee is required by credit or debit card.”
Why can’t I find a limousine for only a one hour rental? Most companies require a minimum 2 or 3 hour booking to rent the vehicle. This is due to the large expense and cost involved in securing and maintaining the vehicles. The average limousine can run around $70,000-$110,000 new! A one-hour rental is simply not cost effective because the vehicle is only in ‘paid-service’ for one hour; however actual vehicle run time may be more than 2 hours. Other costs that make a 1-hour rental not possible is vehicle preparation time and driver salary. In addition, during prom or other high demand season, minimum hourly booking requirements may increase to 5-8 hours due to the overwhelming demand for limousines. You are more likely to get struck by lightning than getting a limousine rental for 1 or 2 hours during prom or special event season. Some companies may offer special exceptions to this rule depending on fleet availability and their current scheduling considerations.
Book Ahead of Time: While you are planning your wedding especially in peak season, make sure you book the ride with time to spare because certainly, you don’t want to find yourself locked out of reservations for the day. In Toronto, spring and early summer is the peak of the season for hiring wedding limo service. Most wedding limousine service companies have hourly minimums on Friday and Saturday nights.
