If you’re planning a big night out, nothing says “classy” like an Oakville Wedding Limo, right? But before you start calling around and renting one of those super stretch ones that look like they’re on their way to the opera, there are some things you should know. We’ve put together this list of factors to consider before you commit to renting a limo:
Should You Rent A Stretch Limo Or A Super Stretch?
When looking at choosing a stretch limo, there are two main factors to consider: the number of passengers and the size of the vehicle.
The first one is pretty obvious—you need enough room for everyone in your group. The standard passenger capacity on a standard limo is around 10 people, but sometimes it’s not enough if you have a larger party or want to bring friends along as well. That’s where super stretch limos come into play. These can hold up to 50 passengers! They’re also generally more expensive than their smaller counterparts, but ultimately worth it if you have a large group that needs transportation from place to place.
Another thing worth considering is whether or not having extra legroom matters for your event. If so, then renting a super stretch limo may be ideal since the limo provide plenty of space between seats and doors!
How Long Should The Ride Take?
The length of your limo ride is up to you. The longer the trip, the more expensive it’s going to be—but by the same token, a longer ride also gives you more time on board with friends and family. A typical night out might take anywhere from two hours (if everyone is just meeting up at a bar) to six hours (if everyone is going out for dinner and drinks). If you have a long list of errands or stops that need to be made during your outing, then it may make sense for your driver to wait while you run them all down.
Are There Additional Charges For Fuel Surcharges, Insurance, Alcohol, Taxes And More?
In addition to the base rate, you may be charged extra for the following:
- Fuel surcharges. These are additional costs that the supplier charges to cover the cost of fuel. They can fluctuate depending on gas prices and other factors, so it’s important to ask what your total bill will be before you book a ride so you don’t get surprised by a big bill at the end of your trip.
- Insurance premiums. Your limo company can provide liability insurance as part of its service package, but if you want additional coverage (such as collision damage waiver), that might cost extra or require an upgrade fee when booking your reservation.
- Alcoholic beverages inside vehicle are subject to state laws and may not be permitted in all states; check with your company if this is something important for your party; otherwise some do not supply alcoholic beverages – but have drinks available from upon request (price determined by venue).
Does The Rental Have A Driver Gratuity Policy?
You may be wondering whether or not to tip the driver. It’s a question many people have, but there isn’t one correct answer that applies to everyone.
If you’re going to be renting a limo for your wedding, birthday party or bachelor party (the last two being popular uses), you should know that drivers are paid hourly and generally work independently rather than being employees of any particular company. That means if you want your driver to show up on time and do a good job for your event, it’s best not to wait until the end of their shift as they could get distracted with other clients/jobs during those hours instead of focusing on yours completely. The same goes if someone plans on meeting up with friends at a bar after work; these folks might not feel obligated to give tips because they weren’t hired especially for this occasion—but again, who wants such an important night ruined by forgetting about proper etiquette?
