Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Limos

Sunday, September 7th, 2014

I’ve been quite fascinated with the history of the limousine and did a bit of research and thought I’d share with you what I learned while residing at David Hill House.

Limousines are the latest modes of comfort as well as stylish transportation. The journey in a Sedan, SUV or the Stretched Limousine is indeed an exciting experience. Most of the hotels and resorts have their own chauffeur driven limo services to pick up the visitors from the airport, take them for sight-seeing trips and to take them back to the airport.

The modern limousine is the luxury sedan or a saloon car with the characteristic lengthy wheelbase. The coach builders elongate the chassis of a limousine thereby making a “stretch limousine”. Traditionally, the stretch limos have either black or white finish. Limos are considered as luxurious vehicles for ground transportation and also they are hired for special events like weddings, proms and other celebrations. Those who want to reach their hotel or office or the conference venue from the airport, those who want to arrive at the venue of a corporate event in style or those who want to reach the hottest nightclubs comfortably, always prefer the limos. There are numerous transportation service providers in all major cities that are providing chauffeur-driven limos to customers. The quality of service offered by these limousine services often surpasses the expectations of the customers.

Types of limos

The design, elegance, beauty and comfort make the limos unique. Apart from the beauty and luxury the limos ensure comfort, enjoyment and an exclusive traveling experience. The journey in a limousine is indeed a privilege in itself. Those who want to hire the limos for specific purposes should have clear idea about the different types of limos and moreover those who hire the limos for special events can opt for the event-appropriate limos. While a journey in the limos is a unique travel experience, the limos on the road are something special to the eyes. The different types of limos include the Sedan, the Stretch limo, the Hummer limo, the Classic limo, the Convertible limo, the “Green” limo, the SUV limo and the Limo Bus.

The ideal options

Sedan is the smaller version of limo and is a highly sophisticated vehicle. The Sedan can comfortably accommodate four people at a time. Sedan is the favorite of business executives. SUV is the ideal vehicle for the family or group on a vacation trip. The companies that provide the SUV services offer various facilities in the vehicle including spacious seating, bar, TV, baggage rooms and strollers. The Hummer limos are of different sizes and shapes and accommodate more number of people at a time. The doors of the new Hummer limos open vertically. The convertible limo is the best option for those who go for a ride on a pleasant summer day or night. A scenic drive in the Convertible limo along the sea-coast is a memorable experience. The classic limos are elegantly decorated and are ideal for special occasions. The Standard Stretch limo is the most popular type of limos. They are the favorite choices of the elderly people. The Limo Bus is the largest type of limo and is ideal for large families, extended families and excursion groups. The Limo Buses are also used for party on wheels. The “Green” environment-friendly limos ensure the least amount of pollution to the environment. There are many companies that are renting only eco-friendly limos. Some of the “Green” limos are cheaper than the regular limos.
