How To Book The Best Houston Limo Service For Prom
Getting your kids set up with a reliable and safe Houston limo service isn’t hard, especially when you go with Excelsior. However, it does require some extensive and important planning.
Get Your Itinerary Together
Your first step in getting a limo for prom should be to work out the logistics. You’ll need to figure out basic information that will determine the cost and other important details.
First, you need to know how many people will be riding in the limo. This will determine the type of vehicle you need. A luxury sedan for example is less expensive but also holds the fewest amount of people.
On the other hand, a larger limo or a party bus will hold far more people but also costs more. However, because they hold more people, you can split the cost across more people. In many cases, it makes it cost a lot less per person. Also, you get to pre-party with a lot of your friends, especially if you rent a party bus.
Additionally, you need to consider the size of the people riding in the limo as well. When we say a limo can accommodate up to 10 people, we’re talking average size.
For example, 10 relatively slim people under 5’9 would be quite comfortable in one of our limos and fit just fine. But let’s say a bunch of football players book a limo and a few linemen pushing 300lbs @ 6’3 and it’s not happening.
So, be aware that the size of your party both in numbers and physical size plays a big role in the vehicle you will need.
Distance and Time
Another important factor will be the distance you need to go in the limo. Most often a Houston limo service will account for distance traveled as part of their cost. This can be in the form of mileage, gas used, or both.
Also, when you book a block of time for something like prom, it’s not like a rideshare where you pay each way. You buy a block of time meaning your driver gets you to your event and then waits outside until your departure time.
So, rather than only paying for the time to the event and the time back, you have them for the entire block of time. If your event is 4 hours, and travel time each way is 30 minutes, you should book 6 hours to safely cover.
Timing and Route/Pickups
You need to narrow down exactly when you want to be picked up and dropped off, as well as the logistics of that. For example, will everyone meet at someone’s house and leave together, or will the limo make multiple stops?
Also, some transportation companies charge for limo service in Houston based on the season or demand. For example, during prom season, you might find that rates are higher than other off-peak times. Additionally, you may get a better price the further in advance you book. With Excelsior, we give you a reasonable rate and unbeatable service year-round.
The other thing you need to consider is the extra amenities. Things like snacks, beverages (non-alcoholic of course), and other add-ons that enhance your service.
Go Ahead, Shop Around
You might be surprised to hear us tell you to shop around, rather than telling you to blindly book us. However, we are so confident that Excelsior offers the absolute best value and service of any limo service in Houston. So confident, that we want you to shop around. We stand out from the get-go when you just visit our website or call us.
You know right away, you’re dealing with a limo service that is first-class from start to finish. That’s why we’re not afraid for you to browse the competition—because there is none. Are we cocky? Well, it’s not cocky when you can back it up. Our thousands of loyal customers that use us over and over again for the limo service needs are the proof.
You should also look at the reviews of any provider you are considering, ask them about their driver’s training. Ask what their driver’s education is like, their service record, and how much insurance coverage they have.
These are all crucial things you will need to know about a provider. A reputable limo company will have no problem giving you that information before booking. If they give you the runaround—hang up.
Never sacrifice safety for an unrealistic low price. Cheap is never good and good is never cheap but it is fair.
Time To Book!
Once you’ve done your shopping and received quotes from several different providers, you have enough to narrow it down. Compare the amenities offered, and the reputation of the companies you’re considering.
From there, you can say you’ve done your due diligence and can book the company you choose. Make sure you double-check the booking details and contract for service. Some unsavory companies will try to slip in extra charges in the fine print.
Once you get picked up on prom night, remember your driver and their level of service. Tipping is considered customary and is always appreciated. Also, be respectful of the vehicle and care for it like you would your vehicle. Mutual respect goes a long way to having an enjoyable experience.
