5 Tips to Hiring a Limo for your Teenager’s Big Night:
- Talk to their friends early. The demand for transportation during the spring season can be overwhelming when so many others are chartering transportation for prom, graduation, and even weddings! Talk to their friends early and decide who will be in your limo group, so that you can book your reservations and get the vehicle you want.
- Allow time to take lots of pictures. If you want to have photos of prom night, plan for their friends to meet up for pre-prom at one location (make sure the limo company and the chauffeur have the address and directions). You can even ask the driver to position the chauffeured vehicle to be a part of the shot.
- Give the transportation company a curfew. That’s right; the chauffeur will abide by any rules you set forth, and will make sure to pick up and drop off your kids at a designated hour. This is a great way ensure your kids make it home on time, no excuses.
- Set some ground rules. As the parent, you have the right to tell the transportation company what will and will not be tolerated in the vehicle. For example, you can ask that the chauffeur keep the privacy screen down for the entire ride, so that he/she has a full grasp of what your kids are up to. If any of your rules are broken, the chauffeur can turn the car around and bring your kids home.
- Remember to sit back and relax. A reputable company hires drivers with proper training and licensing. This professionalism helps ensure your teenager’s safety — and your own peace of mind.
