This is to make sure you’re choosing the right type of vehicle and you’re dealing with a reputable limousine rental service provider. So, to help you out, we have enumerated some FAQ and tips on what you expect in terms of cost and general policies when renting a limousine. Read on.
How much does it cost to rent a limo or an SUV going to and from the airport?
Of course, the first thing you need to take a look at is the rate they offer. The cost depends from city to city and the type of vehicle you will be renting. Usually, airport transportation in a sedan is not much more than a taxi which can be unpredictable. You can expect a lesser rate offered though. If you’re not on a hurry, you can always go for airport shuttle services—this may only cost you for as low as $10. On the other hand, average fares start at $20 for sedan service while stretch services may go up to $40-50 depending on the vehicle size, party size, location, and distance.
What are the sizes available?
There are many types of limousines—the regular luxury sedans, stretch sedans, 6 passenger stretch limousines, 8 passenger stretch limousines, 10 passenger super stretch limousines, and the 12-18 passenger super stretch limousines.
How long do you need to rent the vehicle?
You should also find out the length of hours or days you need to rent the limousine. The average rental per hour can go about $50 – $300 per hour, again varies on the type of vehicle and distance. The minimum rental hour is 2 – 3 hours, with exception to standard airport service. This is why we strongly recommend organizing your itinerary as soon as possible, so you would know how many hours you need to rent the vehicle. Keep in mind that extension rates are usually higher than the booked hours.
