5 Times you should Always Hire a Limo

There are some nights when a pint of ice cream and a good book are all you need to have the best night of your life. Other times, a bit more planning is involved. Hiring a limousine can turn an ordinary night into an extraordinary night, and take the normal out of any weeknight or weekend that you plan together with friends and family.

Expectations can make or break an event. When you are expecting the world and receive just a sliver, you are not likely to be thrilled with the result. There are some who use this as a reason to not get overly excited about events, leaving them perpetually pleasantly surprised.

Of course, there are some nights that are meant to be extraordinary. Life events and large parties are planned with a huge expectation of fun and memories, and it isn’t reasonable to lower your expectations just to lessen the chance of your hopes being dashed. There are a few things you can do to help those nights live up to the greatest of your expectations. Like, for example, hiring a limousine.

Consider the way a limo can make these five life experiences that much more enjoyable:

1. Your wedding: There may be no other night as meaningful as your wedding. This is one night when it makes sense to let someone else take care of the traffic, and you can focus on enjoying yourself. Your wedding night, the morning after your wedding and even the rehearsal dinner can all be made more enjoyable by a limousine.

2. Your reunion: Whether it is for high school or college, showing up in a limousine sends a message of success. Let people talk about you–that is what going to those reunions is all about.

3. For travel: Heading out of town, out of state or out of the country? Taking a limousine to the airport comes with serious benefits. You won’t have to pay for long-term parking, you’ll have serious space for your luggage and won’t have to rely on a friend for a ride.

4. Wine tours: It is a shame to live in California and not take advantage of the many vineyards in the area. Wine tours are a great way to spend time with friends and family while enjoying your community. Don’t drive yourself to one of these events. Keep everyone together and safe by traveling in a limo.

5. Ladies night: You’ve got all of your friends together and you are heading out on the town. Hiring a limousine will make this night like no other. You won’t need a designated driver, you won’t need to worry about parking and you won’t need to think twice about getting home safe. It is all taken care of, and you can rest assured you’ll get into any club you arrive at as you step out of your limo and into the time of your life.


Bay Area Prom Night Transportation

Prom season is here! It’s time to pick out the perfect prom dress, schedule your make-up and hair appointment, and plan the biggest night you’ve been waiting for. Prom is all about having a great time while outshining the rest of your class. It’s about having the cutest dress, the hottest date, and the coolest car. Who wants to pull up in the same vehicle that everyone else is riding in? A classic stretch limousine is usually the go-to choice when it comes to prom. Why not think outside of the box? Instead of a traditional limousine, why not try the Stretch Lincoln Navigator? At least you will be able to fit 7 couples comfortably instead of 6.

Transportation is usually the last thing high school seniors think of when planning their prom extravaganza. Who’s riding with who? What’s the  maximum amount of people you can bring inside your vehicle? How much is my prom transportation going to cost? Those are all questions that arise when planning your special prom night. Usually, it’s best to figure out who wants to ride together as a group to prom, which vehicle you would like to go with according to the size of your party, and how much each person will be paying individually. If you have a party of 6, the classic stretch limousine is perfect. If you have a party of 12, the Stretch Lincoln Navigator would be best. If you have a party of 26, the party bus would not only would accommodate your needs, but you could start the party early by riding in the limo bus.

If you’re looking for a transportation company in the Bay Area, Black Tie Transportation is the way to go. We want to be a part of your special prom night, by offering exclusive deals for our Bay Area students! Give us a call and a representative will be happy to assist you in planning your big night.
