Hiring a limo on a budget

Posted on 29th Aug, 2016 by Jackie Jolliffe

Hiring a limo on a budget

Looking for limo hire for your next special event? Just because you’re on a budget, doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate in style with luxury limo hire. From planning the finer details of your journey to choosing a reputable firm… we’ve got all the best tips in today’s blog!

Book in advance

When booking a limo, we also advise you book as early as possible to prevent disappointment. The later you leave it to book your limo, the more likely it is that it will be unavailable. What’s more, more affordable limo services will sell out ahead of pricier limos services – leaving you with the most expensive limo hire on the market.

Identify your requirements

Upon booking, make sure you know your requirements and numbers. If you need a limo for 17, you needn’t book two – our Silver Hummerzine has room for 18. Likewise, if you’ve got between 9-16 guests, you’d be better off booking our Black Hummer or our Pink Hummer, which seat 16, than booking both the White Chrysler and Black Chrysler, which seat 8.

Plan a pick-up from one location

We factor travel distances and time required to complete your journey into our prices. If you’re sharing a limo with friends, arrange a pick up from one location to reduce travel and time costs.

Know your route

At Limo-Scene and Wedding Cars, we make sure that we plan each journey to the best of our knowledge. We research travel routes, road works and diversions – but a little advice from you always helps. If you know the quickest way to get to your chosen location, do let us know. The reduction in time and mileage will be reflected in the total cost of your limo hire.

Ask about our additional extras

If you’re hiring one of our limos for a special occasion, it’s a good idea to ask about our optional extras. We can decorate the limo with balloons or ribbons and bows and pop in a bottle of bubbly. It’s often a lot cheaper for us to do this on your behalf than for you to provide the items yourself.


Choose a reputable limo firm

When it comes to limo hire, safety always comes first. You should never cut corners in order to save money and should always choose a reputable limo firm. At Limo-Scene and Wedding Cars, we guarantee a safe and secure service. All of our hummer limos are COIF certified, a legal requirement for all 4 x 4 vehicles, and all our other vehicles fully licensed. Our drivers also ensure a professional and reliable service – a must for that special occasion! To find out more about our limo hire, give us a call on 0800 389 5811.
