Fall season is here; that means football, fall
festivals, and all kinds of exciting memorable events are on the horizon.
If you are a parent with children of High school
age, then you know that Homecoming season is upon us, and the stress of
planning and budgeting for such a memorable event is no fun. Here are a few
tips from Skyline Limousine to help ease the pain and put the fun and memories
back into Homecoming.
-Book early. Booking and planning early is
“always” the best option, as time goes on options become limited and prices go
up based on supply and demand.
-Go in as a group. Paying for Limousine service
can become costly. Splitting the cost with other parents and students is always
a good idea. As a group this allows for “everyone” to spend the extra dollars
elsewhere; ie. make-up, hair, nails, nicer suite etc.
-Do your research shop around and look at reviews
of other Limo companies the last thing you want is a Chauffeur that is not
knowledgeable, and courteous to High schoolers. Ask questions at the schools as
well many schools classify limos as bus transportation and require them to
follow the same traffic patterns for busing, be sure to ask ahead and relay
this information to your limo company drivers will not know this information
unless you pass it along to them.
-Know what to expect. Most if not all Limousine
companies charge by the hour with a 3 to 5 hour minimum some as high as 6
hours. Plan your Homecoming event around this and maximize the use of your limo
rental by stopping for photos, or a quick bite to eat. Whether you use the
extra time on the front end before Homecoming or on the Back end after. Either
way your dollars will stretch further if you plan around this.
