When it comes to renting a limo for any important event, you want to make sure you do it as far into the future as possible to make sure you aren’t handicapping your selection of limousines due to other bookings. The most economical limousine companies aren’t going to have the biggest fleets, so that is more the reason to book far in-advanced.

At the very least, you should be able to choose whether you want a white or black limo, but there’s also some that carry a nice variety models like the stretch Hummer, Escalade, or if you need to go big, there’s the party buses outfitted with every luxury and entertainment accessories you can dream up.

Keep your eye on the price

While the initial cost of renting a limousine for your wedding might be incredibly cheap, which could be due to the drop in gas prices, you can easily rack-up other extra costs if you don’t read the fine print. Some companies give you one base package that shows you exactly what you’ll pay, while others will leave it up to you on how much you are willing to pay per bottle of champagne, gasoline, by the hour, and etc.

Just make sure you get everything written in your contract, so there can be no misunderstandings. Same goes for making sure the limousine company is certified and carries liability insurance. This includes all vehicles being DOT-inspected and DPU-certified by the state. The last thing you want is to be in a limo or waiting on your limo to arrive, only to find out that it has broken down and you’re a sitting duck at your wedding.

With a bit of research on reviews and rates online, you should get a good idea of which limousine company is right for you to chauffer your wedding, and maybe even your honeymoon!
