Limousines have become a symbol of class, status and wealth. Wealthy business men and beautiful starlets are driven around in these luxurious vehicles. But all that glamour is not reserved for them. Limo hire services have given us a way to experience limousines as part of a special occasion and fun.
Not solely for weddings and proms, limos can be used on a multitude of occasions including:
- A night on the town. Bars, nightclubs, restaurants and concerts etc.
- A trip to the airport
- On a special date
- As special birthday transportation
As well as many others. It’s not limited to any one occasion. You can use a limo for anything you feel like using it for. Limousines are fun. Many people party in the limousines themselves. Here are some ways to help you make the most of your limo experience.
Book in advanced
Booking is very important. This is because limousine hire companies are often very busy. Especially during their peak wedding and prom seasons. The earlier you book the more chances you have of getting a booking. You’ll also want to book early if you’re looking to rent a specific model or sized limousine. You never know who else will be wanting to rent those same cars.
Booking an older model can save you quite a bit of money. If you’re budget is a bit tight you may want to consider this option. The companies do their very best to preserve the integrity of the cars and their engines. These vehicles are well maintained. They’re also still considered classy and stylish today. Limousines are classic and timeless and the older models have an air of extra elegance and you wouldn’t be missing out on a thing.
Check the weather
While the weather is unpredictable it is still a good idea to check. Check the weather forecasts for the time you want to book for. Look for any weather that may make it uncomfortable to be out and driving around. But unless your area is prone to blizzards you should be fine.
Dress the part
Chances are, your limo is taking you to a formal or classy event of some kind. But regardless of where your limo is taking you, it is still the perfect excuse to dress up. There is no reason why you shouldn’t feel the part while riding in a limousine. Go for sophistication with an air of glamour and you’ll be driving around in style. In more ways than one. It’ll also help put you into a festive mood.
Share the experience
One of the great things about limos is how many people you can fit inside them. On average, that’s up to six people. But up to ten people in the larger models. Inviting your friends along is a great way to share the fun. With some close friends limos become a cosy in-between/before party on wheels. Not to mention that splitting the costs with some friends may allow you to have a limo experience outside your budget.
Bring things with you
Many limousines have built in fridges or champagne buckets. Limo hire companies often provide ice and glassware for their clients. Bringing some drinks and some snacks along for the ride will give you a true VIP experience. A limo ride is rather incomplete without a nice cool glass of bubbly.
You can also bring your own music to create a great vibe in the limo. This is a welcome practice. If you don’t bring your own music you may be subjected to something that isn’t your taste or even complete silence within the car. Rather have your own options.
Document your day
What better way to make the most of your special occasion than to take lots of photos. By taking photos you can keep the memories of your experience forever. Plus you can share the memories with all your friends and family or on social media. Most chauffeurs will be happy to take a few snaps for you as well.
Tip your Chauffeur
Tipping your chauffeur is not only the decent thing to do. But it also encourages a friendly environment within the limousine. Chauffeurs need to be appreciated as they can make or break your special occasion.
Make a day of it
You don’t need a special occasion to rent a limo. You can hire one and go site seeing for the day with a few friends. Or if you’re on holiday. You can plan your own route and decide what you want to see. Where you want to go. You can even be dropped off at your even after a few beautiful stops. Just remember that when planning any round trips to inform the limo company and the chauffeur of any times you’ll be needing collection.
A trip in a limousine is for many a very memorable experience. And with these tips you’ll enjoy your experience to it’s fullest potential.
