Finding the Right Limousine for your Special Occasion

It is extremely important to use due diligence when selecting your limousine for your very important event. Talk to our rep about the type of function you need. The number of people, number of hours you’ll need and how far you’re going. It would be beneficial to know if this is for a wedding, concert, prom, birthday party or maybe an anniversary – and we specialize in certain events to deliver the best possible experience. The more details you can provide, the better the value and service you’ll receive.
Keep in mind that our company, V Transportation, has a large inventory of amazing limousines to complete your function, with surround sound CD and DVD players, flat screen televisions/with satellite, fiber optic and neon strobe lighting, our limousines feel like nightclubs on wheels.
You’ll also want to consider the type of function, number of people (Try to book a vehicle that has room for one or two more people than are in your party. This guarantees that you have plenty of room to move around and enjoy the experience.)
So plan accordingly. Often times, the right vehicle can make all the difference. Ensure the vehicle you’re getting has the space, features and look for your next event. Some companies provide music (radio or satellite radio), so ask in advance or be prepared to take your iPod or a CD mix with enough music to last the whole ride.
Also ask about features like the seating arrangement and luggage capacity for large group vehicles. Also, do you need ice or drinks? Do you have a preferred route for your ride? Not sure which is the best ride for you? Check out our limousine Pricing Guide for vehicle details.

AVAILABLE FEATURES AND PRICING:

Always make sure you are checking prices as they apply to services and in-between services. Each limousine company will generally have their own unique pricing policies. Most companies offer services priced by the hour – but may also offer flat/guaranteed rates for airport rides or sometimes all-inclusive packages.
Pay attention to “add-ons” like fuel surcharges or other services fees not included in the base price. FYI, it is customary to tip drivers 18-20% of the base price. some companies automatically charge a driver tip, while some leave it to the customer to decide. Be sure you get the full price up front when weighing your options.

Also, keep in mind, some companies do require pre-paying for their service, here at V Transportation, we just put your credit card on file, but don’t charge it until after the services have been rendered.

FOCUS ON VALUE

The best service for the best price. Not all limousine services are equal. Price should not be the only factor in your search. Much like renting a hotel, different price points often mean different service levels. It’s good to have a budget determined ahead of time, but also know what type of experience you want.

YOUR SAFETY

Here at V Transportation, we know The most important thing to consider when booking a limousine consider safety for yourself and your party. Legitimate limousine companies need to be registered with their state (US only), have the proper levels of insurance and be properly licensed. Never book a limousine with a company that can’t promptly show you their licensing and insurance credentials – don’t take chances.

PACKAGES

A package is often the best choice for special occasions like weddings, concerts, prom, sporting events or other ride types with a predictable start and end time. Packages will generally provide a set number of hours in a vehicle that fits your party size and event for a fixed, all-inclusive price. Some companies offer packages for every type of service and most give substantial “bulk rate” price breaks.
RESERVE EARLY
Start searching well before you need your limousine. For wedding limousines, some people book 12-18 months in advance. Other events, like proms, are best to book a limousine a few months in advance. In general, it is best to start looking 3-4 weeks before your event. After you’ve selected the right limousine service provider, get confirmation in writing. For special occasions, it’s generally a good idea to contact your limousine service provider a week before the event, just to ensure everything is confirmed.
