Most kids would really appreciate a limousine gift card as transportation can get really costly.  Among friends they are most likely splitting costs, so even if you purchased a small amount – it will go along way for your friends or family.

Guys Night Out!

OK, so we all know the “girls” have their nights, so we can have ours, right?

guys_night_01

So, now that that’s settled, what to do? Dinner? Bar hopping? Clubbing? All of the above? Sure! But… who’s gonna draw the short straw and be the designated driver tonight? No one is raising their hand. So what’s it going to be… Cab? Uber? No, not tonight. There’s 8 of you, and you want to live it up in style. It’s settled… you need a limo!

party_limo_bus

So now, which limo? Well, our website can help get you started, as can a conversation with one of our reservationists, but some suggestions for you now would be the Lincoln Town Car stretch limo, the Cadillac Escalade super stretch SUV limo, and the Hummer H2 super stretch SUV limo. They can seat from 8 to 18 people. Larger group than that… go for the luxury limo bus.

Hummer_H2_limo_01

Whichever you choose, you’ll travel in safety and style, with no concerns about getting there, where to park once you’re there, and most importantly, if the drinks are flowing, you won’t be behind the wheel.

Make it a night to remember. And speaking of remembering… remember this; what happens in the limo, stays in the limo. Enough said.  So check out our OC limo fleet to find your perfect limousine, submit your free limo price quote request, or give us a call any time.  We’re always open, ready to answer your limousine questions.

Pizza & Limos?

One of the most frequent questions we get at 800 Limo Ride is “How many people can fit in a limo?”. This is a rather loaded question. It’s akin to asking your local pizza parlor “How many slices are in your pizza”? Without knowing the SIZE of said pizza, the number of slices is hardly relevant. If they offer a 16 inch pizza, whether it’s cut into 10 slices or 52, it’s the same amount of food. Same with a limousine; the number of passengers depends on which limo you are asking about, and the size and configuration of that limo.

So, when you call a limousine service, the best course of action is to simply tell them “I need a limo for “X number of people”, followed by the simple question “What are my options?”. This will get the ball rolling, and the representative on the phone would then be able to go over the various vehicle types, configurations and capacities.

They may ask if you prefer a traditional ‘sedan-based’ limousine, such as the Chrysler 300 or Lincoln Town Car, a cross-over limousine, such as the Lincoln MKT, an SUV limousine, such as the Cadillac Escalade (shown above), or the Hummer H2. Depending on the fleet of the service, you may also be offered a van-based limo like the Mercedes Luxury Coach, or a limousine based on a bus platform, like the Limo / Party bus.

Some of the choices offer the ability to stand up, some offer toilets, all offer luxury seating, bar, fiber optic lighting and high end digital entertainment systems. Your choice at this point is based on your personal preferences, and/or the recommendations of the service provider.

Hopefully using these tips, and taking the time to do a little research on the fleet(s) of the services you are considering, you will be able to come to the most informed decision possible, and snag the perfect limo for your event. And maybe on the way you can ask the chauffeur to pull over for some pizza. Whether that’s a slice or a whole pie… that’s up to you! But you may want to offer your driver some, as that’s just rude to fill a car with the smell of pizza and keep it all to yourself!

Our Chauffeurs, Our Service

Every week we get calls from people who have never booked a limousine with us, asking about the services we provide, and the ways it is different than other transportation options – you know, the kind that we often refer to as “amateur car services” or “phone app car services”.  That’s a pretty easy question to answer, and it often surprises people when they hear all the differences.chauffeur 1

First off, when you rent a limousine from us, you’re getting more than just a ride.  You’re getting a stylish, late model luxury vehicle.  And if you choose one of our stretch limousines, luxury coaches or party buses, you’re also getting all the amenities that are included, such as high end multimedia sound systems, TVs, bar and fiber optic lighting – not to mention enough room for 8-40 adults!  Not things you’re going to get from the guy who shows up in his Toyota Corolla.

And speaking of that… we don’t have “drivers”, we have professional chauffeurs.  And there’s a big difference.  The “car service” guys don’t have to abide by the same rules and regulations as limousine services – like different classes of drivers licenses, drug screenings, and P.U.C. regulations.  We do.  And our chauffeurs undergo continuous safety training, as well as training for each vehicle and the various systems in them.  They know their vehicles, so they can get you up to speed on all the controls at the start of your ride.

limo_party_01

In general, when you book a limousine from us, you’ll have that same car and chauffeur for the length of your trip.  This means not having to wait for “some guy” to show up when you need to go.  It also means being able to leave personal belongings in the limo in between stops.  And your car will be waiting for you whenever you need to move on to the next destination.

While riding on the limousine, you’re free to indulge in a an adult beverage if you so desire.  Watch a movie, listen to your favorite songs, even close the partition of you desire more privacy.  No concerns about navigating, parking, traffic or drinking and driving.  It really is the ideal way to travel by car.  Good luck doing some of these things with the phone app guys.

airports

Whether it’s a ride to the airport, a night on the town, or something big like a bachelor party, it really is tough to beat a professionally driven limousine.  And if you’re part of a group, the cost is well within reason per person, compared to the alternatives.  Sure, we’re biased – being a limousine service – but when you think about it, it would be hard to disagree.  But don’t take our word for it here, check out our Orange County limo fleet, then submit a free limo price quote request, and see for yourself.  You’ll be glad you did.

New Year’s Eve Done Right!

As we write this, New Year’s Eve is just a few days away.  And if you’re like most of us, you have a party to attend that night.  And of course, this is a night all about celebrating, which typically means having an adult beverage or two.  And with so many folks out partying and enjoying the evening’s festivities – and likely just as many sobriety check points – the last thing you want to do is get behind the wheel.

New Year's Eve 07

And we know you have many options for transportation that night.  Perhaps one party goer has opted for the roll of designated driver.  If so, you’re good to go.  Or maybe you’re thinking taxi or amateur car service?  That may be a problem, as this is one of the busiest nights of the year for everyone in the transportation business, and the last thing you want to be doing is standing around waiting for your ride when the clock is about to strike 12!

And if you’ve got a large group of friends, it gets even trickier, with multiple cars and drivers.  You’re most certainly not going to arrive together, and we don’t mean by just a few minutes.  Half of your group could be left stranded because their car isn’t available yet, while your is.  It’s not the most enjoyable way to spend what’s supposed to be a night with friends and family.

New Year's Eve 02

If you really want to get the party going, and keep it all together, you need something better than these options.  you need a stretch limo, or possibly a party bus, depending on the number of revelers in your group.  The benefits are many… everyone rides together.  The vehicle is booked in advance so you know it will be there for you, on time, at every stop on the way.  And most importantly, it will be there at the end of the night when it’s time to head home.

No one has to be the designated driver, everyone can indulge in some drinks – heck, even start the party on the way to the party in the limo itself.  You’ll have the same professional chauffeur the whole night.  Leave items in the car if you like.  There won’t be any fumbling with a phone app trying to find a ride, no worries about navigating or parking.  And no concerns about driving impaired or getting a DUI at one of the many check points.  It’s the ideal way to bring in New Year’s Day.

New Year's Eve 03

If you like the sound of this, take a look at our Orange County limo fleet to figure out which limousine works for you, then submit your free online limo price quote request, or just give us a call.  We’re here 24/7 to help you choose the perfect New Year’s Eve limousine.

Happy New Year, and thanks for reading!
