Limo Service Policies

Whether you are looking for a car service, ordinary limo service, airport transportation, wedding limousine rental or prom limousine service there are certain things you should do or ask before reserving any type of limousine service from a limousine company.

Here are some tips for renting for any occasions from a wedding limo to a prom limousine to an airport limousine from your local limo vendors.

Before renting from limousine service make sure that their fleet of limousines is insured in the case of any damage or an accident. Ask to see a certificate or proof of some kind. Never rent an airport car service or any other kind of limo rental from a company that can’t provide proof of its coverage.

Not all airport limousine companies or limo rental companies offer the same payment options. Make sure the company takes credit cards and if not ask why. Beware of companies that ask for cash payment upfront.

When considering a limousine rental you should also demand confirmation of your rental in some way. If you ordered from place that specializes in limousine rentals online they should send you a confirmation of your rental online. If you rent limousine in person then they usually send you the confirmation by fax. Make sure you get a limousine quote before you buy, so there are no surprise charges on your credit card. Be aware that not all limousine quotes cover every charge such as a damage deposit, etc.

Sometimes you can get a cheaper limo if you ask to rent it during off hours or on days when the limousine company is not too busy. Ask the limo rental company when their off hours are, and most likely they would be happy to work with you.

Do not rent a limo and then immediately expect that a certain make and model of stretch limo or other type of limousine will be automatically provided to you. Ask the company about the limo, its type, make, model and age. Keep in mind you can sometimes get a cheaper rate for an older make or model then the one you initially requested.

If you want special perks like a DVD player, television or phone in the limousine you may have to specifically request it. The same goes for other additional items like ice buckets, bottles of champagne, chocolates, blankets and flowers.

If you have special needs such as a car seat or ramp for a wheelchair or you need some extra room in the limo for a wheel chair then you may need to request it upfront. Many limo rental companies offer this type of service for free, so it does not hurt to ask.

If you are using a limousine for airport transportation you also need to ask if there is a “waiting fee” or waiting charge if case the limo is late. The same thing goes for wedding limos or funeral limos that may be held up for reasons beyond anyone’s control.

Most quality limo services belong to organizations such as the National Limousine Organization. Be sure to check the credentials of any limousine rental companies before you give them your credit card.
