5 Reasons to Hire a Party Bus for Your Night Out

Posted by Michael Foilb on Sun, Mar 05, 2017 @ 09:30 AM

Party Buses have skyrocketed in popularity. For Proms, Bachelor/ette Parties, Concerts, Sporting Events, Sweet Sixteen, Night on the Town, more and more people are getting together with friends to rent party buses.

Real Party Buses are Loaded with Fun amenities 

  • Leather Seating
  • Surround Sound Stereo
  • iPod hookup
  • Light/Laser Show
  • Bar with Glassware, Napkins, Mints, Ice Chest, etc.

 

Reason 1: It's Affordable!

That's right, it's affordable. When you chip in with all your friends you may each end up paying less than $10/hour. This varies by vehicle. We have Sprinters, Cabin Cruisers, Land Yacht, Luxury Liner, Shuttle, Trolley and more. Passenger space varies with capacity.

Reason 2: Great Deals

Having a group of people in a party bus get driven to a business is a win/win. Company's love to get the customers that come in the bus. They like party buses so much that they regularly offer deals to our clientele. Casinos offer packages that may include free food vouchers, gaming credit and a free gift. Promotions vary and change for different venues. 

Night clubs also offer us special deals. We can regularly get our customers in with No Cover Charge (or reduced). They can get access to VIP tables and ultimately get treated like a celebrity.

Reason 3: Get the Party Started

You don't have to wait to get to your destination for your party to start. Start when you get on the bus. Hook up you iPod, chill some beverages over ice and get your pre-game on during the ride. Adding the travel time to the party time makes for an epic night out.

Reason 4: Chill

A party bus alleviates all the angst and anxiety of a night out. Who's car, who's the driver, where can we park, where can we pre-game, etc. In a party bus you only have one responsibility, that's having as much fun as possible.

Reason 5: Safety

It may sound boring, but a party bus means a professionally-trained driver is keeping you safe. No worries about DUI or assigning some friend to be the designated driver. On a party bus everyone gets to party and they can party hearty.

Things to keep in mind:
  • There's a difference between a party bus and a party on a bus. Make sure you know what you're paying for or you could end up with a painted school bus with a disco ball.
  • Think about the price per person. While there's no free rides, spreading the costs makes costs manageable. Of course, if you're loaded, just splurge.
  • Look for an experienced company running well=maintained vehicles. Gamble when you get to the casino, not when you hire your party bus.
  • Sometimes we hear from people that they don't have enough friends for a party bus. Well you'd be amazed how many new friends and friends of friends jump on board the party bus with you.

Planning on Asking Her to Marry You?

Posted by Michael Foilb on Wed, Oct 26, 2016 @ 09:40 PM

Your future spouse will be asked over and over again about how you proposed. While some people may be able to set up a flash mob to sing and perform a choreographed dance to Marry that Girl (I'm going to Marry Her Anyway) and others may buy a full page ad in the New York Times or hire a private jet to fly off to Paris, for most of us, the elaborate over-the-top proposal plan just isn't feasible. But you can afford to have her engagement story start with..."he picked me up in a limo."

EngagementRing2.jpg

Simple, romantic, elegant and impressive, what a great way to let her know how special she is to you. Nearly 40% of engagements occur between November and February. Interestingly, 17% of engagements happen on the same 10 days each year! With plans to visit old friends and family during Thanksgiving or to take a trip home for the holidays. After the ring is revealed, the next question is, "how did he propose." Make sure she has a story to wow the people who love her.

Let us know if you’re planning to pick her up and a limousine to propose, we’ll help make sure it’s extra special!

[Of course, this doesn't have to be a plan just for her, it can be used to ask him to marry you.]

One of the great thing about summer in New England is the opportunity to enjoy a great outdoor concert in one of the area's great venues. Whether is Kenny Chesney, U2, Cold Play, or Justin Bieber at Gillette Stadium, Don Henley, Bryan Adams, Moody Blues or Idina Menzel at the Blue Hills Bank Pavilion Boston, Nickelback, Rod Steward or OneRepublic at the Xfinity Center, or maybe Lady Gaga, James Taylor or Billy Joel at Fenway Park, there's an option for every musical taste.

Party buses are extremely popular at these events. We can provide you with luxurious vehicle, suitable for safe beverage consumption, for you to pregame in with your friends as you anxiously wait for the concert to begin! Our Celebrity Party Bus holds up to 40 people

Other great options in central Massachusetts include the DCU Center and Hanover Theatre:

The Hanover Theatre is gorgeous and hosts every type of show which includes concerts, comedy shows, plays, etc.  I personally have attended a concert at each of these venues and they all are great and provide a diverse schedule of events and concerts.

There are great options for nights out at Mohegan Sun Arena and the MGM Grand Theater at Foxwoods. And of course, there are entertainment options beyond the concert scene, sporting events, night out, bachelor/ette parties, sweet 16 parties and more.

Enjoy New England this summer.

8 Important Questions to Ask Your Wedding Venue

Posted by Michael Foilb on Tue, May 24, 2016 @ 02:00 PM

State_Room2.jpg

A Nightfall view from Boston's elegant State Room.

  1. Do you have my date available?

It’s pretty much a moot point if someone has already booked the space.

  1. How many people does the space hold?

Ask about the capacity for cocktails hour, standing space and seating for dinner.

  1. What’s the fee for renting the space and what does that fee include?

Find out if your rental fee includes just the room or does it cover, tables, chairs, linens, bar set up, setup, cleanup, etc.

  1. How many parking spaces are available for guests?

This is one of those overlooked questions that could be demoralizing if they can’t fit the vehicles for all your guests.

  1. If you have your ceremony and reception in the same space, is there a strategy and flow to move guests? How much time do you need to transition from one activity to another?

Make sure that there’s a logical time frame from ceremony to reception. Do you need to plan on 2 hours for cocktails while the room gets reconfigured?

  1. If part of the plan is to be outside, is there an option to move inside with limited notice if there’s a weather problem?

Isn’t it ironic? Like rain on your wedding day…make sure you’re covered.

  1. Is there a suite or dressing room for the bride and groom?

You need to get ready, but do they have space for you to do that at the venue?

  1. On the money front, how much is the deposit? When is the balance due? What forms of payment to you take? What’s your cancelation policy?

It’s important to know how much you’re committing financial to the space. There may be advantages to you if you pay be credit card because you may be able to cancel the charge if something goes wrong. There are also benefits to the venue if you don’t use a card, because they can avoid paying credit card fees.

Ask the questions so you know everything you need know before you make a financial commitment. Your emotional commitment is to your future spouse not to the venue. Do what’s best for you, air all your concerns before you finalize your plans. Most off all have fun on your special day.

7 Tips for Getting Ready for Your Wedding Photo Shoot

Posted by Michael Foilb on Wed, May 18, 2016 @ 09:01 PM

WeddingPhotography.jpgA great photographer will capture the elements that make your day spectacular.

1. Finalize (and Stick to) the Wedding Day Schedule

Make sure to tell your photographer your final schedule for your wedding day.  She’ll need that information to plan your shoot and to take advantage of any opportunities to use natural lighting. Stay on schedule, being late not only interrupts the photographer’s schedule; it can impact all your vendors from your transportation and cocktail hour to food and music.

2. Restrict the Use of Your Guests Picture Taking

One of the most frustrating things for a wedding photog is when someone jumps into the aisle to snap a picture when he had lined up the perfect shot. Ask your guest not to interfere with keep photo moments.

3. Get a Second Shooter

When you think about the financial commitment you made to this day, skimping on photography can cause you to miss capturing precious moments.  The second photographer offers another unique point of view throughout the entire day that you would have been missed if he wasn’t on the scene.

4. The Pursuit of Perfection

Let it go. If you harp on making sure everyone does what you expect you’ll have a tough time enjoying your day. Communicate your goals clearly and then let the pros take over. You goal is to just have fun and keep smiling.

5. Schedule Time for Your "First Look"

Plan the 'first look' photo session before the ceremony.  Don’t try to squeeze in picture time. Make a commitment so there’s time to properly capture the moment.

6. Candids vs. Posed

If you want your album to include candid images don’t feel obligated to to look up at the camera and stop what you’re doing. If the photographer needs a posed shot, she’ll tell you what to do.

7. Don’t forget the Details

Spend some time thinking about what other aspects of the day are important to photograph -- did your aunt make flower arrangements? Did you bring special heirlooms from your family? Bring an extra invitation; keep those special elements easily accessible for your photo shoot.

There are other things you can do to ensure that your photographer captures the key moments of your wedding day. Utlimately, the goal is to communicate with her to make sure she understands what you want her to do. Most of all enjoy the day.

Limo Coupon Deals to the Airport?

Posted by Michael Foilb on Thu, Mar 24, 2016 @ 10:37 AM

Have you ever seen one of those attention grabbing coupon offers for discount rides to the airport? While a lot of times the costs are marked up so they can be disounted...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 toda 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. Our quote includes tolls, recommended, but not mandatory, gratuity, transportation charges, admin fees, etc. It's all in our quoted price. To build a reputation for quality and luxury for more than 30 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.

8 Insider Tips to Finding the Best Airline Ticket Prices

Posted by Michael Foilb on Sun, Feb 28, 2016 @ 01:43 PM

It can be frustrating to be on the same flight with other passengers who paid less than you for their ride. After all, you’re getting the same service, but the costs can be all over the place. Luckily, there are some indier tricks to help you get the lowest fare.

AirplaneOverBoston

  1. Reports show that passengers pay “nearly six percent below the average fare” when they purchase tickets six weeks ahead of their flight.
  2. To be more precise, research shows that typically 54 days before the flight is the absolute lowest price for your trip. If you miss that window, make sure you purchase your ticked at least 21 days in advance. Contratry to traditional thought, airline flights do not get cheaper as you get closer to takeoff.
  3. Buy your tickets in the morning, Insiders tell U.S. News and World Report that “airlines only post a limited number of seats at a reduced fare at night.” Those fares are typically gone as the day goes along.
  4. Tuesdays at 3 PM Eastern time is the best day and time to buy your tickets according to farecompare.com
  5. Farecompare.com also reports that Wednesday is the cheapest day to fly. So see if that mid-week departure can fit into your schedule. 
  6. U.S. News and World Report reported that the cheapest flights are usually the ones that depart first in the morning.
  7. Low-cost airlines like Southwest and JetBlue don’t allow their tickets to be quoted on popular comparison websites. Those sites often charge the airline which ultimately gets absorbed by the passenger. So shop those airlines on their individual website.
  8. If you watch “Alerts” to find the best rate, try AirfareWatchdog.com they use actual people to confirm the deals rather than computer systems.”

Of course, after you find your best deal on a flight, you’ll want a great deal on a trip to the airport.
