While most people will agree that limousines are among the safest forms of transportation, there is no question about how important it is to get an early reservation. So, the next time you need to reserve a ride, be sure to follow this guide to learn everything you need to know!
The Busy Season
All businesses have a busy season, even limousine companies. If you are trying to book a limo to take you to the airport during prom season you may find yourself out of luck. There are other times of year when limos are busy. The holiday season, for instance, is a time when most people need a limo for an evening of celebration or travel.
Another busy time for limo companies is during the wedding season. If you want to make sure you have the car you want for your wedding you’ll need to plan ahead. Not only do you need to make sure that you have all of the other details in place, but you’ll also need to know if the limousine company allows special requests such as a stretch or two-seat conversion.
During the business travel season, there is also a lot of demand for limos. If there is a convention in town at the same time you are trying to book a limo you may not be able to find one.
For the most part the average sporting event is no big deal and you shouldn’t have any problem booking a limo. There are some exceptions though, the biggest exception is the Superbowl (or the big game). For the Superbowl, there is usually a huge demand for limos, so it is wise to make your reservation early.
It is always better to book your limousine as early as possible. That way, you’ll get your limo the day you need it and you’ll avoid the rush at the last minute. If you need to reserve a limo to take you to the airport, it is wise to book ahead of time. Even though most limo companies will try to accommodate a flight request, you may have to pay a little more.
What happens if you need to cancel? If your limousine company has a cancellation policy, you will need to follow it. Some of the policies might be strict and others are a little more forgiving. Be sure to read the policy in full before booking your limo. For instance, some companies allow cancellations until a certain hour on the day of service.
