Is it your birthday or are you planning a birthday party for a friend? If this is the case, you may want to think about finding a livery service and renting a limo for the day or night. However, getting a birthday limo is a little different than renting a town car to get back from the airport. Hiring a limousine for someone’s birthday takes very careful forethought and consideration – the last thing you want is to hire a company that doesn’t specialize in birthday festivities or that doesn’t have a tolerance for loud revelers.
Here are five things to consider when hiring a limo for a birthday party.
The size of the car.
This is an important consideration because there is a good chance that you are inviting a lot of people to celebrate the birthday of a friend or loved one. In most cases, you don’t want to hire multiple limos – not only is this cost-prohibitive, but it is also overkill. If this is the case, you may want to hire a large stretch limo or even a minibus.
The cost of the service.
Limousines can be expensive, which is the reason why they are mostly used by the rich and famous. If you are trying to splurge on a limo, there is a good chance that you don’t want to spend all the money you have, which is why you want the company you work with to offer competitive rates. Some companies, offer packages, so you can get around in style without worrying about breaking the bank. Having a packaged deal versus an hourly rate can make the experience a lot more affordable and enjoyable.
The time of your rental.
Deciding how long you need the limo for is important. If you are paying by the hour, it can be even more important. Yet, to get the best deal and to allow a limo rental company to give you the best rate, you want to have a time frame in mind. If you are going out with friends for dinner, there is a good chance that you will only need the limo for a couple of hours.
The amenities and extras.
Some limo companies offer some great extras and amenities in the total package. The extras include a full bar, party lights, and a great playlist, which will create the perfect atmosphere for a major birthday bash. Before you hire a limo, you may want to ask about these extras – some companies throw them in if you ask. If you don’t ask, you could be missing out.
Does the limo company specialize in birthday parties? Does the company’s limo drivers have experience with people who want to have a good time? If you hire a company that mainly deals with quiet corporate rides between the airport and hotel, you may want to look for another company. In the end, you want a limousine service that knows how to show people a good time. It is a birthday, after all – not a funeral.
