You’d think that hiring a limo, of all things, would be easy. But there is a lot to check when it comes to making sure you have something high-quality – what price is it, for one thing, and for another, what kind of services does it offer? You’d be surprised at how much goes into hiring a limousine, considering that it is ultimately just another type of car. But limousines have a glamour intimately attached to them which makes everything they touch also glamorous
What is a Limousine?
For all the hype that limousines have, many people don’t actually know what they are – and if you are looking for quality, then knowing where to start looking can only help. A limousine is not a specific bar brand – it is a luxury version of what can be one of several car brands, including Chryslers. A limousine usually takes the normal version of those cars, and then stretches it out to form a larger car which can seat more people. A limousine is a car which is automatically associated with luxury, which is why they are so often seen at weddings and similar events.
How Much does it Cost?
Just as with other services, the price of a limousine ride depends on a number of different intertwining factors. Most hiring sites which require three different pieces of information from their prospective clients before they can give a price estimate:
- How much time will you need the limousine for, in hours? This is counted from the time you pick the limousine up, to the time you drop it off\someone collects it.
- What date do you need it for? If you are hiring a limousine in peak wedding season, then there will be more demand for the vehicles, and therefore the prices will be higher.
- What location will you be at/be driving to in the limousine? This information may cause the prices to go up, if you are driving a long way, to account for the increased use of petrol.
Once you have given this and any other relevant information to the company you are looking to hire from (or all the companies you are looking at), they will be able to work out a final total for your hire and journey. You will then be able to determine whether or not you are willing to pay this price for the limousine and the experience of travelling in it.
Will the Limousine Come with a Chauffeur?
Limousines (www.limohiremelbournenow.com.au) are different from rental cars in that where you normally have to drive a rental car yourself, all limousines come equipped with a chauffeur as standard. While this is part of the luxury which comes as standard with a limousine, this is also due to the fact that, as stretched cars, limousines handle very differently to normal cars, and thus need a specialised driver. Limousine chauffeurs are there to make a special day even better, since how many people get to ride in a car and not drive?
