What to do when booking a limo for prom?
Prom is just one of many special, yet stressful occasions in a person’s life. It’s natural to feel nervous and overwhelmed when planning such an important event. Follow these tips and check one major task off your to-do list. Here’s how to find the perfect limo:
1. Who to take?
Before you start comparing the limousine company options available, figure out what you want and how you want the night to look. Do you want a simple, yet elegant car to take just you and your date to the prom or you would like to share the experience with a couple of your closest friends?
Most companies can offer a couple of options for your big night, depending on the number of people. The standard limousine can seat up to 8 passengers, but there are super-stretch limousines and party buses that can fit 18 people or more. Before you start asking around, figure out the exact number of passengers that are going to be travelling with you. This is especially important during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, as limousine companies are very strict about following all CDC protocols.
2. Book early
Springtime can be a very busy time for limo companies. Not just because of proms, but weddings and open-air conferences are usually organized in spring too. If you don’t book ahead, chances are you’ll end up without a limo. Additionally, limo rental prices tend to fluctuate based on demand, so if you book ahead of time, you’ll most likely get a much better rate.
3. Compare values
To get the most accurate price you should have all of the following information ready:
- Date and time of the event
- The exact pick-up location
- The exact drop off location
- Number of hours you will be needing the vehicle
- Number of stops and detours
- The exact number of passengers that will be in a vehicle
When you start comparing the quotes you get from different companies, make sure you are comparing the same value and not just the price. For example, a company may have a cheaper rate, but the vehicle is older. Some companies will give you just the flat rate, so make sure you check if taxes and tolls are applied. You should also find out if the fuel surcharge is included in the price and if the company charges for waiting time.
It’s important to know what is included in the price and what other amenities the limo offers. You can ask if you’ll get any complimentary drinks (non-alcoholic) and if the sound system in the limo is compatible with your phone. Once you have all the information necessary you can make an informed decision and go with the company that works best for you.
