You’ve made the decision to hire a limo, and you couldn’t be more excited. You already picture yourself living in luxury, enjoying a drink during a bar crawl or reading quietly during a smooth ride to the airport while your driver takes care of the rest.
But what exactly will your experience be like? Truth is, that answer will depend largely on the type of limousine you procure for the event. There are sedans, town cars, buses, traditional stretch limousines—the options are endless. So how do you match the limousine to the event, and how can you be sure that you pick the right option to maximize enjoyment? Let’s look at just a few of your options at Marquee Limo Company.
Situation: The Big Birthday Bash
Recommendation: Mini Coach
If you’ve got a big birthday party coming up—an event that might require as many as thirty-two passengers, then you’re going to need some serious wheels. The traditional stretch limousine won’t do. But pure tonnage isn’t the only factor here, as our Prevost bus is more appropriate for smaller parties who like lots of amenities. The Party Bus is another excellent choice, but only if you have fewer than 15 passengers in your party. A big birthday bash could easily feature two dozen.
Situation: The Bachelor or Bachelorette Party
Recommendation: Party Bus or Mercedes Sprinter Van
Unless your bachelor party is really big (requiring the Mini Coach), you’ll do well with an appropriately-sized Party Bus capable of handling up to 14 passengers. There are two flat screen TVs on board, iPod hookups for DJing your own night, as well as wet bars and a lights show. It’s truly the way to travel in style, especially for special occasions like a bachelor or bachelorette party. The Mercedes Sprinter van is a great way to travel in style, as well, particularly if you’re taking on a “pub crawl” type night where you’ll be spending more time out at the hot spots.
Situation: The Wedding Party
Recommendation: Stretch Limousine or Party Bus
The traditional stretch limousine is a perfect chariot for whisking away the bride, groom, and their respective bridesmaids and groomsmen, but the Party Bus can handle plenty of capacity if you need a little more room. Either way, you can’t go wrong with enjoying the feeling of luxury wheels as you move from the wedding to photographs to the wedding reception.
Situation: Airport Shuttle
Recommendation: Lincoln Town Car or Mercedes Sprinter
Choosing an airport shuttle is all about individual style. We feature a number of cars, including a Lincoln Navigator SUV and a Bentley Sedan, for going to the airport in style. But if you have a larger group, you might want to opt for a Mercedes Sprinter Van. The van is not only stylish, but it’s spacious, handling an entire family up to 11 passengers. You have lots of choices when you want to start a trip in true style, but make sure to pick an option that will leave you with plenty of room for everyone.
