3 Elements That Impact The Cost Of Renting A Limo


There are lots of reasons to rent a limo. Perhaps you want to travel to and from your wedding in style, or maybe you just want to have a fun night out with the girls, or perhaps you want to check out some vineyards without having to worry about a designated driver. Whatever the reason, it is important to understand the factors that will impact the cost of renting a limo.

Element #1: Type of Limo

When it comes to working with a limo service, it is important to understand that there are different types of limos. You can start with a luxury sedan on the most affordable end, that can transport two people around. If you upgrade to a higher class sedan, with more high-tech features, the cost is going to increase.

If you want to go with a stretch limo, the type of limo will impact the cost. A hummer limo is going to cost more than a regular stretch limo.

Many limo services also provide larger forms of transportation, such as luxury party buses and motor coaches as well.

Generally, the nicer the vehicle, the more it will cost and the more people the vehicle will hold also increases the rental costs.

Element #2: Date, Time, & Location

The date, time, and location can have a big impact on the cost of your drip. If you are renting a limo on a weekend, you are probably going to face higher rates than if you were renting a limo for a weekday event. There are also peak seasons in the limo industry, so it may cost you more to rent a limo during the holiday season or prom season then it will in the middle of September.

The location of where you need to go can impact the cost as well. If you are traveling around town, the cost may be lower than if you want the limo to drive an hour out of town and back. Longer distances may result in a distance charge or a higher per-hour rate.

Element #3: Special Package

Oftentimes, limo companies offer special packages that you can add to your service. If you add a special package to your ride, it will increase your overall bill.

For example, if you get a prom package, you are going to get bottled water, snacks, and generally multiple pick-ups and drop off locations. Or if you are getting a wedding package, you are going to enjoy snacks and a few extra special things, like some bottles of champagne, to go along with your ride. Getting a special package that adds on food or drinks to your experience will increase the price of the trip.

When it comes to renting a limo, the type of limo, the date, time and location of your event, and any special packages are all going to impact the overall cost of renting and enjoying a limo service. You can learn more by reaching out to one like In Style Transportation today.

Navigating Public Transportation in a Big City

I come from a small town. It's so small that there is no public bus service—you can walk everywhere within city limits. People drove their cars if they wanted to leave town. At home, I rarely saw a taxi, and subways were something I only saw in movies. Moving to New York City was a shock in many ways, but learning how to get around using public transportation was one of the biggest hurdles that I faced. I didn't know how much to tip a taxi driver or how to find my way around on the bus. However, I did eventually learn. I know that there must be many people who are facing the same learning curve that I was facing a few years ago. I started this blog to help other small town natives like me learn how to get around in the big city.
