So you want to rent a beautiful limousine to take you to the wedding ceremony and reception locations. Many brides do, and assume it will be as easy as picking up the phone and dialing a number. However, it’s important to make sure you get the best service and best price. These 4 tips can help:
Rent the Limo for the Weekday
If it’s not a big deal for you to get married on a weekday, you’ll save money on the limo. For limo drivers, their weekend is as busy as most peoples’ weekday. Many limo companies will offer significant discounts for those who rent limousines during the week.
Pay Attention to the Actual Car
When you’re renting the limo, it’s important to pay attention to the actual car you’re renting. You’re going to pay more if you rent a newer limo, so why not go for an older model as long as it’s still in great shape? Most limo services also feature 6-person, 8-person or 10-person vehicles. If you’re going to provide transportation for everyone, consider fitting as many people in the car as possible.
Find Out What the Price Includes
You’re going to want to ask the company exactly what the price includes. Often times, the quote does not include the gasoline fee you will be charged. It may also not include the gratuity for the driver, which is often added on at the end or when you’re ready to pay. Ask the company for a total quote, which includes absolutely everything you will need to pay for.
Inspect the Car
Ask the company if you can come by the morning of the big day and inspect the car you’ve rented. Because limos are often the transportation for club-going young adults and individuals of all other ages and with a variety of purposes, it’s hard to tell what goes on. You want to make sure your car is clean, smells great and is ready to go.
Using these tips, you can ensure that you get the best deal and the best possible service when it comes to renting your limo.
