March madness is here! If you are a parent with
children of High school age, then you know that Prom 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 Prom.
-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 Chauffer that is not
knowledgeable, and courteous to Prom goers. Understand the most Limousine
companies will have a policy in place for transporting minors and may have
additional paperwork for parents to sign for liability. 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
rely 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 prom 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 the Prom or on the Back end after the prom. Either way
your dollars will stretch further if you plan around this.
