I’ve had the pleasure of using All Around Limousine & Party Bus service so I can attest to the company’s excellent service. Owner, Joshua Seabrook has provided some helpful hints to make your limo selection smooth and seamless.
Take a look at what Josh has to say…
We hope this guide helps you get the most from your luxury transportation experience
Get the right vehicle
Make sure that the vehicle you reserve will work for the size of your group.
The standard sedan is a Lincoln Town Executive, Signature or L series. Any full-size luxury sedan can hold between 1-3 passengers comfortably.
The standard limousine is stretched 120″ and it is referred to in the business as a 10 passenger limo. 10 passengers is the max, based on the size of each passenger, I would try and keep it around 8-9 to get the most comfort out of the limousine experience. So our 14 passenger limo or 180″ stretch limo fits 12 adults comfortably.
A 24 passenger party bus, can fit comfortably 20-22 passengers depending on the size of each passenger. We also have a 16 passenger party bus, that fits 14 adults comfortably.
Get the Whole Price
Ask if there are any tolls, fuel surcharges and if gratuity is included. For large groups, gratuity is typically included in the fare at 15-20%. Many small businesses also include a credit card convenience charge of 1-3.5% if paying by credit card to offset the expenses from the card processing companies.
Safety and Insurance
All passenger vehicles in Indiana are required to have a minimum state required 1.5 million dollar insurance policy. Party buses with 16 or more passengers are required to have a 5 million dollar policy. If you are unsure about the company ask for a copy of their insurance information. All Around Limousine will provide the insurance information upon request.
Limousine services in Indiana also need to have Indiana Passenger Operating Authority filed with the state of Indiana.
The earlier the better within reason. 1-3 months is sufficient for most dates, but popular dates can get reserved quickly. This happens during Prom time and Wedding season. 30 days is plenty of time to reserve a limousine for airport trips to O’Hare or Midway.
Many limousine companies offer package deals for weddings, concerts, and proms. Often these packages have a 3-hour minimum, but the time needed after the 3-hour minimum is normally discounted.
Give the limousine company and driver as much information as possible to make the trip go smoothly. This can include addresses, phone numbers, reservation times, etc.
