Whether you’re heading in or out of Boston’s Logan International Airport, you’re always looking for the best, easiest and most cost effective way to the airport. You can ask a friend, but seriously, friends don’t make friends drive them to the airport. So what are the options?
Drive and park is an obvious option, but it’s not exactly easy. When you park at the airport for 24 hours and 1 minute the rate is $41, then you pay $27 for each additional day. It adds up pretty quickly. Plus you get to deal with the angst of driving in traffic, finding a place to park and then schlepping yourself and your luggage to the right terminal. When you get back you get to play, “find my car” in the maze of parking spaces. It can be a major hassle.
Parking is only $7/day and your round trip fare is $22. Not a bad option cost wise. However, you do have to get to the bus early, wait up to 30 minutes, drive in circles around the airport, stopping at every terminal and then drag your luggage on and off the bus. If you have the time and energy, it’s a viable option.
For most passengers their first instinct is to jump in a cab. But, before you do that, you have to wait in a line and then hope the rate is reasonable. The fact is, the Boston Globe reported in March of 2013 that Boston has the “highest taxi rates among major US cities.” And as far as insurance coverage goes, the Globe report said, “Passengers in city cabs are put at direct financial risk because cab owners are allowed to buy the bare minimum bodily injury insurance —not even half the coverage required of bike messengers.” (Le Limo has a $2 million liability policy.)
Once you hail a cab outside the airport, the driver will often charge you a flat rate. Well the flat rates aren’t regulated by the city. And to complicate things, different cab companies charge different flat rates. You don’t know what the fee will be until you get in the cab.
Sure we’re biased, but the fact is we quote one all-inclusive flat-fee based on the driving distance. We give you a rate that includes the fuel surcharge, the tolls, the Massport fee and the recommended gratuity to the driver. We also let you know if early AM fees apply.
We admit it, it might cost a little more to hire us, but you can relish the stress-free ride to the airport. Enjoy the comfort our just-cleaned corporate sedans, SUVs and limousines. Plus you get a professionally-trained chauffeur who will treat you with respect. Your diver will be waiting for you at the airport and load your luggage for you. No cab line, no surprise costs, no smelly taxi, no stress. Maybe it’s time to consider our flat-rate services to and from the airport. We offer an elegant option for airport transportation. Our goal is to help you return to an era of unparalleled luxury.

Unfortunately, there have been a lot of stories in the news lately about limousine safety. We recognize that this is a major concern for all our customers and frankly, it is why we make it a top priority.
At Le Limo we do things a little bit differently than some of our competitors. We typically don’t boast about our safety record and procedures, we think it should be part of the expectation of hiring a limo company. But since it’s been in the news we wanted to share some of the aspects of our safety procedures.
Every Le Limo party bus, every limo, every trolley and every coach is equipped with a fire extinguisher. All of our buses have been designed with an emergency exit. We go through a stringent review process with the Department of Transportation. It is part of our corporate philosophy to exceed their minimum safety requirements. We don’t cut corners on safety…not even a little bit.
Our drivers visually inspect the fleet prior to every run to ensure that everything is in operating as designed. Le Limo is one of the only limousines in the state that has its own in-house repair shop. We have certified mechanics making repairs as needed based on a feedback from our drivers.
Drivers are prohibited from drinking alcohol prior or during their assigned run. Le Limo performs random and unannounced drug tests on drivers sporadically throughout the calendar year to ensure that they are not under the influence of any narcotics.
Each month every car goes through a thorough safety inspection and routine maintenance is performed per the manufacturer’s guidelines. Tires are routinely inspected for tread wear and changed regularly with our equipment in-house.
We just don’t think safety should be your concern when you hire a limousine. We think it should be our concern.
This car is getting new transmission fluid in one of our garage bays.
This question is being raised more often because of the proliferation of limo brokers. There’s a whole industry of limousine companies that are really just marketing firms. They promote the service and then hire other companies to do the work. The brokers aren’t really limousine companies but rather they coordinate and farm out work.
They take your reservation online and on the phone like any limo company. Next they start contacting real limousine companies and look for the lowest cost provider to give the work to. They make money on the spread between your quoted rate and the discounted rate they get from their sub out company.
But when they hire the lowest cost driver, they usually send you the lowest quality rental. They may use older vehicles in their fleet, they are likely to have inexperienced drivers and they are unlikely to have the customer service you need. If anything isn’t as planned, the broker can’t help you, he doesn’t have any limos.
Do you own your limos? Yes, at Le Limo we own our cars. Our fleet of over 30 vehicles includes sedans, SUVs, limos, party buses, Mercedes Sprinters, a classic Rolls Royce and our custom-bulit trolley. If your plans change; if your flight is delayed; if you need to add more passengers to rental…we can usually take care of it for you on the spot.
When you hire Le Limo your job is run by Le Limo. It’s the way we’ve been doing business since 1986.
Our latest edition, a brand-new 2013 Chrylser 300, 10-passenger. Yes, we own it!
Yes, the Red Sox are in full swing, the Celtics and Bruins are playoff bound, but there are a slew of cultural events in the Boston area this month.
Ask us about our Night Out packages if you're planning on parttaking in any event. Whether it's our Romantic Lover's Limo for 2, one of our stretch limo, a party bus, our custom-built 35-passenger trolley, or any other vehicle in our fleet, we have your transportation needs covered. So spoil yourself, have a great night out!

If you go a web search for “limousines Massachusetts” you literally get millions of results. There are hundreds of companies in the state, so picking the right limo service can be unwieldy. With so many companies and cars to choose from, how do you pick the right one? The key is to do your homework. Below, is some insight as to what you should be looking for from a prom transportation vendor.
Check out yelp, citysearch, google+, patch.com, insiderpages, businessfinder, superpages and Angieslist. The best way to learn about a company is to hear from former customers. They can give you a non-biased insight to the service you can expect to see from the organization. Also, you may want to check with Better Business Bureau to see if there are complaints file against your prospective transportation service.
Le Limo has a 5 star rating with virtually every review site, no complaints with the BBB and an “A” rating from Angieslist.
2. Years In Business
Business Experience is important. There are lots of nuances in coordinating a successful ride. The best way to make sure that everything runs smoothly at prom time is to hire a company with in-depth experience with prom transportation. If you find a newer company that seems to meet your needs, check into the experience of the staff. Have they been coordinating prom rides for a few years?
Le Limo Limousine has done thousands of proms since our inception in 1986.
There are an abundance of choices for vehicle types, stretch limos, party buses, custom-built trolley, shuttle buses, stretch SUVs and Mercedes sprinters. The average fleet size in Massachusetts is five. Smaller companies will obviously have fewer choices and less availability.
Le Limo has 27 choices for you. From a 2-passenger sedan to our 35-passenger trolley, we’ll have something that fits your needs.
4. Review your options in person
Seriously, take the time to see the vehicle you’re renting. Nothing is more deflating to get picked up in an old limousine or worn and tired party bus. You might be able to get a good sense of the vehicle from pictures online but make sure to confirm that the transportation you expect is the transportation you get.
Le Limo regularly updates our fleet to make sure you’re riding in late-model vehicles. Additionally our cars get cleaned every day before they go out to a client. Please join us at our Open House, every Saturday from noon to 3 PM.
Of course price is a factor. Limousine companies sometimes have layers of fees that they add on to your base rate. You’ll see fuel surcharges, administration costs, tolls and gratuity for the driver all the sudden your bill is 30% higher than you quote.
Le Limo doesn’t do pricing that way; we give you an all-inclusive price. You pay the quoted amount for the quoted service. We think it’s the most honorable way to do business.
One of the best ways to find good limo services is through word of mouth. Ask a friend, relative or co-worker who they might have used and if they were happy with the service. A first hand referrals is the best way to select a limousine company.
Le Limo loves the accolades our customers shower upon us and the referrals they share with their friends.
Call us at 800-287-8970
We've seen a lot of attention grabbing coupon offers for discount rides to the airport. What they typically fail to mention is that you need to add gratuity (usually 20% of the original cost), tolls, fuel surcharges, administrative fees and Massport fees. Suddenly, the great deal is not so great. We got a groupon today 2/21/13, for example with this fine print: cancellation fee may apply. Extra fee outside of service area. Extra $20 fee for services 12:30 a.m.-4 a.m. Gratuity not included. Those extra fees and "not includeds" can add up pretty quickly. Just adding the gratuity and off hours fee is $76 extra. If you add a surcharge for service area, tolls and fees, suddenly you're paying $100 more than the advertised price.
We don't roll that way. Le Limo gives you an all-inclusive price when you book with us. To build a reputation for quality and luxury for more than 25 years, you have to treat the customer with respect. That's just the way we do business...always have. Call us 24 hours a day at 800.287.8970.

A casino can be a magical place. We all pretend, in some way, to be flashy like Robert Deniro from the movie Casino; wearing baby blue 3 buttoned suits with a tail, gold emblazoned gangster glasses and a continuously lit cigar that seems to break the fundamental laws of cigar nature. You feel lavish and almost royal when you’re there. You can’t help but feel a rushing sensation of hope and promise, “yes, this is it. This is the time I take the casino for all it’s worth!” But majority of the time, these trips end with an empty wallet and a morning meal off the Mcdonals breakfast menu because you stupidly put everything on black after it hit four times in a row-“I’ll take the hot cakes please.” But it’s that thrill and brief sense of luxury that keeps us coming back time and time again. Because maybe, just maybe you’ll hit it big and finally have the cash to move out of your parents house to the apartment complex down the street. We can dream right?
But if you’re like most of us who don’t have a boatload of cash to spend but still want to experience the dopamine high of the lights and always-enigmatic melody of the slots, here are some great tips on how to hit the casino on a budget.
1. Bring your friends and a sleeping bag
Casinos are designed to take your money in every way imaginable. That’s why you’re looking at $250+ a night for a small room with two beds that you know should be chemically stripped for all the horrid things that have probably happened there. You’ve got to fight fire with fire and find every way imaginable to take from the casino like they take from you! So, if you’re planning on staying the night, crowd as many of your friends into one room as possible. That way, once you split the cost, each person will only have to pay a minimal amount. Can you say WINNING?
Entertainment at casino’s can be tricky to navigate. Normally, like all other things, it’s overpriced. But, unless it’s a rare occasion, the majority of performers are bottom tier talent that couldn’t generate enough interest to go on a national tour. So I’d say avoid the big shows, unless you’re heading to see Robin Williams perform stand up at Mohegan Sun next month!
The clubs are usually a good way to go if you’re looking to be social and maybe throw out some Gangnam Style dance moves (my lasso is killer). But the clubs are also what you make of them. Cover is often expensive (sometimes $30-40) and the experience is dependent on the night. If it’s overly crowded to the point where I cant walk across the dance floor without spilling half my beer and getting groped by too many people to count, no thanks. But if that’s your bag then please be my guest and get your groove on.
When you’re putting in serious work at the blackjack table, have the munchies from all those free rum and cokes or have been dancing your heart away in the club you can build quite the appetite. Now I know all those fancy restaurants with beautiful interiors and the name of that big time chef you saw on The Food Network plastered on the entrance can look pretty damn good. But your wallet won’t be thinking so afterwards. Play it safe and stick to the cheap food. Get a burger or some pizza. If you’re able to leave the casino maybe even try going somewhere else for food…or just don’t eat! After all, your cash is meant to help you win it big not stuff your face.
If you’re like me you hate spending a lot of money on drinks. So if you’re looking to get a solid buzz for a cheap price you’ve got a few options.
- Bring a bottle of your favorite liquor and get your drink on in the car before heading inside.
- The last option, and in my opinion the best option, is to drink well liquor martinis. At 2.5oz of liquor per drink, you get the biggest bang for your buck with martinis. Plus you get the tasty olives!
This is the trickiest aspect of the casino to navigate. If you’re feeling conservative take $20 and play the slots. Most likely you’ll lose it all but you’ll at least get to listen to the music and check out all the fancy lights. So that’s a win! But the best way to play is blackjack. It can be a dirty game. One second you’re on top of the world living the high life of 10 chips (5 more than you started) and an enormous range of opportunity, then the next you’ll be crying in the fetal position underneath a park bench because you gambled away your wedding ring. That’s why you’ve gotta learn when to walk away. Once your up move on. Go walk around take in the sites, explore a little. Then maybe later come back and test your luck again. But just know the longer you play the more likely you are to lose.
So good luck and try not to lose it all!
