Renting a limo is luxurious, we admit it. And, a lot of people back off from the idea of renting it because they think that being luxurious, it must be expensive as well.

Today, we’ll be talking about some tips which you can utilize before renting a limo which can make your overall experience even better. Of course, renting a limo isn’t happening in half an hour so it’s always a good idea to talk to multiple limo renting agencies in order to see what type of service suits you the most. But, nevertheless, if you covered all that basic stuff about renting a limo, in this article we’ll also cover 3 tips which you can use to your advantage to pick the best package for you.
Don’t Rent It Alone
For limousine rentals, the idea behind it is that providers pay per “vehicle”, not per person. What this means is that you’ll need to pay for the renting of a limo for a whole day, and it doesn’t really matter how many people you are coming with. As for limo renting agencies, they simply don’t care if you’re driving alone or you’re coming with 10 friends. 200 euros for a day is what they’ll be getting and that won’t change.
So, if you’re looking to rent a limo, a good idea might be to gather some friends that share the same limo passion as you, in order to pay a smaller amount of money per person when renting a limo. The math here is simple. If for example, the limo rental costs 200 euros, if you’re coming with 2 friends, you’ll need to pay 100 euros each. But, if 10 of you are coming, then hey, you’re paying only 20 euros per person which isn’t that bad at all. Some may spend way more than that on a regular day.
Of course, you need to talk to your limo renting agency to see how many people are allowed to be in the limo. This will give you a clear indicator of how many friends you can call and thus how much money you can save.
Organize Where You Are Going
Now, you may be thinking that if you pay for the rental of the limo you won’t have any more expenses. In most cases this is wrong. Although there are agencies which offer different all-inclusive packages where you pay a flat amount of money and you don’t have to worry about anything else, most other agencies require that you pay for the fuel of the limo. This is completely normal as they wouldn’t be earning any money if you wish to be driven for hours and hours and they pay for the fuel. You also have to know that limos have big engines and thus, they spend a lot of fuel.
To avoid giving too much for limo fuel, organize the path which limo goes yourself. It won’t take long and this way you won’t be getting overpaid if the limo driver takes a direction which isn’t the shortest. When it comes to limo driving, although it might seem expensive, you actually can influence so that it doesn’t become so expensive. Organizing the route of driving is one of the ways to do this.
The key here is to tell your limo driver where to pick you up and that you pick the dropoff point which isn’t too far away. Of course, you should be as open-minded about it as you please and logically, if you’re opting for limo driving you shouldn’t be looking into saving every penny, but it’s definitely a good idea not to pick location B which will be in another part of the world. Just for the sake of your own pocket.
To sum up, when it comes to limo renting, it’s all about being smart and fancy at the same time. If you follow these tips you will definitely have a great time while enjoying your limo ride but you’ll as well have a few bucks more in your pocket at the end of the night. Win-win if you ask us.
