How to Rent A Limo Like A Pro

Limos can be a lot of fun, and most people don’t get to ride in one every day. Even in California, a Los Angeles limo rental is usually reserved for special occasions, big events, business purposes, or for celebrities. Limos can add a touch of class to even the most boring occasion, and are particularly popular for events like Bachelorette parties, birthdays and prom night.

Trying to rent a limousine can be daunting for some people, especially if they have never gone through the process before. But reserving a Los Angeles limo rental doesn’t have to be complicated; by following a few simple rules for Los Angeles limo rental, you’ll be able to handle renting a limo like a pro when the occasion arises.

For starters, decide what type of limo you want and need. Los Angeles limo rental companies offer a wide range of limousines, cars, and busses that you can rent, and it can make your decision tough if you don’t know what you’re looking for. First, figure out how many people are going to be in the limousine. For a small group of people, like two or three, a luxury town car may be a better choice, both economically and environmentally. For larger groups of people, see what larger vehicles a Los Angeles limo rental service has to offer, like a stretch limousine.

Once you know the size and the type of ride you need, the next thing you need to determine is how long you need the Los Angeles limo rental for. Many Los Angeles limo rental companies have a specified minimum amount of time that you must rent a limo for, especially for weekends and special events. If you are renting a limo during prom season or near the holidays, don’t be surprised if you find the limo rental company has upped the minimum time for rentals for the occasion.

A good rule of thumb when determining the time you need a Los Angeles limo rental for, is to estimate the time you will be at the event you need the limo for and the time it takes to arrive and return home, and adding an extra hour on each end. This way, you have plenty of time to compensate for if you get an early start, and a ride home if you’re running late from the event.

Negotiate the hourly price for your Los Angeles limo rental. Many times, Los Angeles limo rental agencies are willing to cut a deal for new customers, and for repeat business, especially if you refer new customers to them, or use them for multiple events in a short amount of time. Bargaining a lower hourly price for your limo rental can save you a lot of money, especially when it comes to the higher-end model limousines, which can get as high as $200 an hour for renting.

Above all, make sure you trust your driver. There have been a few horror stories about limo drivers making foolish mistakes that precluded the passengers from attending their prom, or being late for their wedding. Make sure the Los Angeles limo rental agency you choose is reputable, and comes with good recommendation. Never choose a limo agency based on their affordability, because more often than not, you’ll get what you paid for.

The 44- seat bus was comfortable, clean, and spacious. And affordably priced! Our driver Jose was wonderful - a careful driver who was interested in making our trip successful. He made sure the PA system was working, drove us to the closest, safest spots to load and disembark at our various sites, and even took a group photo of us at the end of the tour! Shannon, who booked us, was great about getting everything signed off and ready. Overall, a fantastic experience. Highly recommend.

The drivers were great. Even Showed up early. I was disappointed that I spoke with the office staff at least three times, sent them detailed route maps twice, as well as written instructions, specifically asking them to share those with the drivers, and when the drivers showed up, they knew nothing about that and had not been given them to them. We took them on a drive thru on the routes to fix this. Was also disappointed that I asked the office staff to provide “out to lunch” signs for the buses drivers could take their breaks and that was not done. We had to do that for them. Drivers were great, disappointed in the office staff.
