How to make your limousine experience a pleasant one

  When you rent a limousine, you’re not just getting a means of transportation. You’re getting an experience. Here are a few tips for you to make sure that your limo experience is a pleasant one. Skip the weekend booking Limo rental companies usually have their weekends fully booked. Try to schedule your rental to fall on a weekday. Unless there’s a special event happening (a concert at Casino Rama, a hockey game, etc.), chances are you can get a bit of a discount or a shorter minimum booking period. Make it a group thing Limo services typically charge by car, not by person. Now, keep in mind that limos are big. They have a lot of room in there so a group of friends can share in the experience – and the costs.
