When it comes to any special occasion many people immediately think of a limo. Whether it for a prom, a wedding or simply for a drive around the block a limousine is often at the forefront of people’s minds when they think of luxury.

In fact, the classic car has often been used in many movies to indicate wealth. So, what better way to indulge for the day than to rent a limousine?

Although it may seem like a great idea at first there are a few downsides to note. So, here we will take you through everything that you need to know about the pros and cons of renting a limo bus.

Pros

When considering limos rental many people will only think about the pros, and there certainly are quite a few. So, here we will explain all of the main advantages of hiring a limo.

Arrive at your destination in style

The idea of arriving at your destination in a limousine, or even simply driving around town in one, screams luxury. There is nothing more stylish or more lavish than you and your family or friends being driven to your destination in a big fancy car.

The great thing about limos is that not only are they stylish from the outside but the inside is always decorated in great taste. You can hire almost any style of limo from more classic styles to bright pink exterior and interior versions. They have LED lights, ice buckets for champagne. Almost anything that you can think of can be found in a limo!

So, instead of wishing away your time until you reach your destination, you can eagerly await the moment when everyone sees how stylish you truly are.

Arrive at your destination together

One of the main advantages of hiring a limo is that you can arrive together with a very large number of people. In a normal car, you can only fit four people (as the driver will take up the last seat). This means that if you are planning to travel anywhere with a larger number of people it may be more cost-effective and more time-effective to actually rent a limo.

That way, you will not have to coordinate several different cars or drivers and you can all rock up to your destination at the same time, making the trip as hassle-free as possible.

Also, because you will get a driver with your limo rental you can be thankful that nobody will have to be the designated driver.

If you are old enough to drive then that means that everyone can part on late into the night. Or, if you are too young to drive it means that your parent to guardian will not have to wait up to take you to your destination. Everyone will have a much more enjoyable time!

Arrive at your destination on time

Because you will need to book your trip in advance your limo driver will be able to scout out the best route available for you. There will need to be coordinating different cars when you leave and certainly no problems with parking when you arrive at your destination.

All the hassle about driving has been removed when you decide to hire a limo bus.

Arrive at your destination safely

Limo rentals mean that you are provided with an experienced chauffeur who knows the roads and the car like the back of their hand. Their many years of experience at driving means that you can rest assured that you in good hands.

There is no need for you to worry about traffic, traversing roundabouts in a limo etc. all of the problems of driving to your destination have been taken care of.

Cons

Although renting a limo can be a great experience there are also a few cons to consider.

It can be expensive

Depending on how many people you want to share the limo with the rental price at some companies can be extortionate. Obviously, this depends entirely on which company you decide to hire from and how many people you are travelling with. For example, if you and one friend want to hire a limo then this will be a lot less cost-effective than if you were to just hire a car.

However, if you have two cars’ worth of people then it may indeed be cheaper for everyone to hire a limo. Know what your budget is beforehand.

Hidden fees

The best time to book a limousine is 3-4 weeks before your trip. The closer you get to the actual date and time that you want to rent the limo the more expensive it will typically be. This can even involve extra fees as they may need to find a driver last minute.

So, to avoid any extra charges it is best to prebook and to allow plenty of time to arrange the travel.

You may not get what you expect

When you book a limo online make sure that it cannot be substituted for a similar car or model. Sometimes the picture that you see online is not actually what you will receive.

For example, if you want to rent a completely pink limo for a hen party make sure that there is no fine print stating that it can be substituted for another limo if it is unavailable. Although you will still get a limo to rent it may not be what you had in mind.

Unused time

One of the biggest wastes of money when it comes to hiring a limo is unused time. For example, if you have hired a limo for your wedding you will need it to wait at the church and other places whilst you get married and have photos taken. All of this time that you are not actually in the car will still need to be paid for.

So, when considering renting a limo know exactly what you are willing to pay and how long you will need it for.
