Limousine Rental Tips
What You Need to Know Before Renting Here are some critical guidelines to follow to ensure your business or vacation travel is hassle-free!

Looking for the "Best Price"?
The biggest error you could make when shopping for a airport limousine transportation is searching based on PRICE. In the limousine industry, there are many variances of quality and price. All too often, a cheaper price translates into larger risk for you. Most consumers would not choose a restaurant or hotel based on price, yet people shop for a limo service this way and expect 5-star quality. If you shop for a limousine service based on price alone, you will likely be frustrated and disappointed with your limousine experience. Old, dirty, poorly maintained vehicles, shoddy service, unprofessional chauffeurs with poor hygiene, dangerous vehicles, late service, and under-insured services are all possible results of a "best price" shopping priority. There are exceptions-- however, the lower the price, the more risk you will assume with your transportation plans.

Check-out Insurance and Permits
All limousines are required to carry commercial insurance and proper permits. Unfortunately, the Yellow Pages and advertising services such as ours do not require the same in order to advertise. To protect yourself from "gypsy companies", ask for these from your selected company.

Ask About Industry Associations
Companies who belong to industry associations usually must abide by special insurance regulations and service rules. Reputable associations such as the National Limousine Association (NLA) and the local livery association are good indications that your service provider does their due diligence. The Better Business Bureau also is a good research source complaints about limousine services are not far behind auto mechanics complaints.

"The Limo Broke Down!"
Don't be the business traveler which gets the "The Limo Broke Down" or "We don't have your reservation" story. Cover yourself by dealing with a reputable company. Shopping on price alone is dangerous. Some unethical operators do not hesitate to drop a reservation to pickup a better paying fare.

Airport Transfer Costs - How it is Determined
To determine the cost of a limousine transfer to and from the airport, limousine services utilize several factors in determining price.
Vehicle required: Luxury sedans are the least costly, however can only transport up to 4 passengers. Cost increases directly proportionate to vehicle size. Number of Passengers: More passengers, more cost. Travel distance to your destination: The longer travel time, more cost.

Private or Shared Ride?
Limousine services offers two alternatives in airport transportation -- SHARED and PRIVATE rides. A private-ride is personal transportation for you and your party to and from the airport with no other stops or other passenger pickups. Private rides are direct, door-to-door service. (Or, door-to-airport). Most services offer private rides as their normal procedure.

Other services offer shared-rides where the limousine makes multiple pickups and drop-offs before completing transport. With a shared-ride, you may share your limousine with a stranger and have to take a slight detour before arriving to your destination. Of course, services which offer shared-rides offer discounted rates to account for this subtle inconvenience.

Affordable Alternative to Taxi's
Limousine service offers a valuable alternative to taxi's which can be unpredictable and offer a lower-quality of service. Typically, limo transportation to or from the airport is a just a few dollars more than a taxi service. When traveling with several people and the cost divided amongst riders, limo transportation is an affordable option.

Can We Drink Alcohol in the Limo?
The policy varies with each limousine service. Also, some states and countries have laws which outlaw such use. UNDERAGE drinking is not allowed under any circumstances.

Do We Have to Tip The Driver?
Yes. The standard tip is 15% of the total fare. If you feel your driver has performed in an exceeding manner, you can tip more. Some companies will AUTOMATICALLY include the gratuity (tip) in their total price quote. When making reservations, always ask if GRATUITY is included in the total price. If not, you should budget an extra fifteen percent towards your total bill for driver gratuity.
