5 Things You Need to Know Before Hiring a Limo

Friends inside a party limo

Everyone wants to feel special every once in a while. You can have your nails done, spend a day at the spa or simply spend a night at a luxurious hotel to satisfy your once-in-a-blue-moon craving for grandeur. If you’re travelling to a special event or a celebration with friends, hiring a limousine can be another way to make you feel like a celebrity.

But before you call for one, here are basic practices every first-time limousine renter should know.

Advanced Booking

This would go for any reservation. Booking in advance ensures that you meet your schedules for both you and the limo service. Make your reservations two to three days in advance.

The VIP Seat

There is a seat in every limousine reserved for the VIP. It could be the birthday celebrant, the bride-to-be, or the person who rented the limo. Be sure to make it available for the right person.


One of the perks of renting a limo is having a chauffeur. And he’s not only good for driving. It’s also part of his job to open the door for you. Be sure you don’t take that job away from him.

Rent with Friends

Surely, you’d want to share this first-time experience with some friends. Limos can sit up to 10 people comfortably. Gather your friends and have a night out on the town.

Licenses and Amenities

Be sure to check on these two things when you call for your reservation. Your chauffeur should have the proper certification, and your limo should have all the amenities you requested. Your fun and safety depend on it.

Be sure to do your own research on the different types of limos to find the one that fits your requirements. Check on the limousine service company’s reviews and ask friends who’ve used the service to know they’re feedback and what to expect.

Remember that this should be a special experience for you. And because it’s your first time, it should be a ride to remember.
