 Girls Night Out in a Limo

Getting the right limo often depends on making sure you give the limousine company all the proper information. Here’s a list of the facts we recommend you have prior to calling to make a reservation.

  • They need to know the type of event. Do you want to hire them for a Wedding, Bachelor/Bachelorette Party, Airport Transfer, Point-to-Point Transfer, Night Out, Birthday Party, Sweet 16, Tour, Casino Trip, Concert, Prom, Meeting or  Special Event. Some rentals have minimum hour requirements and some are just a set fee.

    This information helps the company plan your trip. They may offer Scavenger Hunts for a Sweet 16 or Bachelorette Party. They may offer red carpet service for the bride. There could be special comp packages at casinos or VIP treatment packages and free passes at night clubs.

  • Tell them the date of your event and how long do you need your rental to be. The date is important even if you’re just looking for quotes. The company can only quote based on vehicle availability. As you plan your excursion, consider the time you want to be at your final destination. You need to consider the drive time when planning your length of service requirements.

  • Determine how many people will be traveling with you. This will affect what type of vehicle you can ride in. While switching from 12 to 13 passengers sounds simple enough, you’re likely to have to change from a limo to a party bus with that extra passenger. There are two considerations. First how many people can the vehicle legally hold? The Department of Transportation sets this guideline and it is strictly enforced. Secondly, how many people fit comfortably? If you’re going to be in the vehicle for a long time, you may want to ask about the "suggested" passenger count.

    Here are all the types of vehicles available:

  1. Sedans (mostly Town cars but sometimes Chrysler 300s, recommended for 1 to 3 travelers)

  2. SUVs (good option for those traveling with lots of luggage, they can hold up to 6 Passengers)

  3. 6 Passenger Limousine (Seats 4 comfortably)

  4. 8 Passenger Limousine (Seats 6 comfortably)

  5. 10 Passenger Limousine (Seats 8 comfortably)

  6. 12 Passenger Limousine (Seats 10 comfortably)

  7. 12 Passenger Mercedes Sprinter (Seats 10 comfortably)

  8. 12 Passenger Stretch SUV (Seats 10 comfortably)

  9. 18 Passenger Limo Bus (Seats 16 comfortably)

  10. 26 to 28 Party Buses (Seats 24 to 26 comfortably)

  11. 35 Passenger Trolley (Seats 33 comfortably)

  12. 36 Passenger Shuttle Bus (Seats 36 comfortable)

  • Decide what amenities do you need. If you planning to bring a DVD to watch on the flat screen or an iPod to listen to, etc., ask the limo company if they can accommodate those requests. Consider all the details for your ride. Do you need ice, bottle water or glassware? Ask if they can offer what you need.

  • Be prepared to pay if you want to reserve. Almost always you have to put down a deposit in order to hold the rental. Unlike hotels or airlines, there’s not waiting list or stand by passengers waiting to use the transportation if you cancel. The limo company needs your commitment or they risk losing other rental opportunities for the vehicle. You can typically pay with cash or credit card and the balance would be due at the start of your ride.

The reservationist is there to help. Just give them all the information so that they can help you make the best choice. Consider Le Limo, we strive to help you Return to an Era of Unparalleled Luxury. Call for a "limo consult," 508-842-4790.

Le Limo's Bachelorette Party Scavenger Hunt

Posted by Michael Foilb on Wed, Nov 20, 2013 @ 11:17 AM

It’s not truly a bachelorette party until you and the bride and the bridesmaids spend a night out, embarrassing each other. It seems like a “Bachelorette Scavenge Hunt” is good way to start some trouble. Divide into groups of 4 or 5 and make sure you have photographic evidence of your “achievements.”

ToiletPaperVeil

  1. Get you picture taken with a cop (preferable while not in a jail cell) -10 pts.
  2. Find a coin from the year the bride was born, triple the points if it’s a foreign coin. – 5 pts
  3. Where your bra over your clothes for the time it takes to finish a drink – 10 pts. for each team member
  4. Collect a coaster signed by the bartender – 5 pts.
  5. Make a veil out of toilet paper wear it for the length of 2 songs – 10 pts.
  6. Get a piggyback ride from a stranger – 5 pts.
  7. Find a guy who will let you put your lipstick on him – 5 pts./10 pts. if it’s someplace other than face or arms
  8. Get a guy to give you his socks – 10 pts.
  9. Black out one of your team members teeth (this should be done with makeup or some other peaceful means, no weapons please) - 5 pts.
  10. Find someone whose birthday is on the wedding day – 5 pts.
  11. Get a guy to hand feed you a cherry – 5 pts. for each team member photographed
  12. Team member doing a handstand in the bar (we cannot be held responsible for what might be found on the floor!) – 5 pts. per team member
  13. Find a guy to give you a breath mint – (but don’t eat it) 5 pts.
  14. Wear your hair in pigtails for the night – 10 pts. (this makes #15 more of a challenge)
  15. Get phone numbers from 3 random guys – 10 pts (going out with one of them next weekend, priceless)
  16. Find a guy to practice the wedding march with you…for 5 steps – 5 pts.
  17. Ask a guy if you can feel his 6 pack abs – 5 pts. (using your tongue, 15 pts.)

Now it’s important that the team with the most success is given a prize, even a crappy one. It’s good to have incentive to be foolish…YOLO.
