Deciding on transportation is usually one of the final steps of planning an event, whether it’s a wedding, prom night, or anything in between. There are a lot of things to take into account when figuring out the details of the ride and, if you’ve settled on a limo service, what should be included in it. Most people assume that limousines come in one or two styles, usually variations of the classic “stretch” limo, and are shocked to discover the diversity in design. All serve the same purpose — to provide a luxurious ride to your event — but can be tailored to suit your personal needs, depending on the details of said event and personal preference. Here are a few things to think about when choosing your perfect limousine.
How many people are coming with you? Is this a small affair that only requires seating for two or three, or are you looking to transport a herd of 25 or more? Size truly does matter in the limo world, as you’re going to need to provide amenities for all these people as well as space. A party bus would suit your needs for a bachelorette party, replete with an on-board wet bar and, sometimes, an entertainment pole. Most party buses are like moving nightclubs, guaranteed to keep the party going long after the bars close.
On the contrary, if you’re looking for a straightforward ride to the airport, or just want to be dropped off at the bar in style, a simple luxury sedan or SUV might be a better choice. Remember, you don’t need to settle for anything less than a high-end, tailored experience.
Think about who you are as a person. Are you loud, bold, and out-there? Or do you prefer to be a little bit quieter, a little bit more subtle? Regardless, there is a limousine service out there for you. Rent a massive, bright pink Hummer limo, or choose a more understated Splinter limo, which looks more like a sleek van than a party bus. This is your evening; spend it in yourstyle.
With approximately 60% of limousine companies having less than five vehicles in their fleet, it’s important to find the company that can meet your needs. Don’t settle for anything less than perfect on your special night.
