5 Things to keep in mind when booking a limo. Pt 2
Updated: Nov 12, 2018
Make sure what is included When calling to ask for quotes, it might seem as though the prices for the same service varies a great deal, but in reality, competition is as steep as ever, and the majority of the limousine companies in any given area rarely vary more than 15% in price. Having said that, it is essential to note that not all companies will give you the grand total up front, but many will actually just give you the base rate, and then after you’ve already taken the ride, they add gratuity, tolls, parking, standard transportation charges, etc. amounting up to 40% extra in fees. At Orlando Limo, you can rest assured that you will always get both the base rate, and the all-inclusive rate, so that you know exactly how much you can expect to pay at the end of the trip. Certain occasions require that extra attention be paid, and this is typically the case when you book a limousine. Apart from the transportation itself, there are as many needs as there are passengers, and at Orlando Limo we will happily do our outmost to cater to your every need. Also, while Florida law prohibits us from putting any alcohol in the vehicle, we do (upon request) provide ice, water, soda, crystal glassware, and napkins.
Ask to see the limousines Any reputable limo company will be happy to show you their cars. At Orlando Limo we want to make sure that you’re satisfied with your ride, and what better way to ensure that, than for you to come to see the car you will be riding in?!
Choose your ride For this you need to consider how many people you will be traveling with. At Orlando Limo we offer everything from sedans and SUVs to limos and limo buses, with passenger capacities ranging from 3 to 50 people.
Method of payment If the company does not accept credit card payments, chances are that it is either a part time business, i.e. someone running a limo company out of their basement, or worse, that they are not a serious operator. Either way, chances are that their cars are not well-maintained, or perhaps even insured. For the convenience of our customers, Orlando Limo accepts all major credit cards, as well as check, ACH, PayPal and cash payments. We are a Florida registered corporation, and will also provide invoices with EIN-numbers upon request.
Ask about limo industry associations Limousine companies who belong to industry associations must generally abide by distinctive insurance regulations and service guidelines. Reputable associations such as the National Limousine Association (NLA) and the local livery associations such as the Florida Limousine Association (FLA), and Greater Orlando Limousine Association are good indications that the company does their due diligence. Orlando Limo is a member of NLA, FLA and GOLA.
