The 10 factors that can influence the price of limo hire in Leicester.
Are you interested in hiring a limousine in Leicester or another town or city in Warwickshire or The Midlands, and keen to learn more about how much it might cost? Limousines can be hired from Big Style Limos for as little as £160 for a modern, eight-seater model with prices increasing for cars that can accommodate more passengers.
There are several factors that will influence the final cost for hiring limos in Leicester or elsewhere. We have outlined these below and hope the guidance will help customers in selecting an appropriate vehicle for their travel requirements.
Limousines and wedding cars are available for bookings in a huge choice of makes, models, styles and ages. These can range from the eight-seater Lincoln Town Car and Chrysler 300C limousines through to the opulent, supersize 16-seater Hummers. In between these cars there are also various other American SUV limousines (often Excursions, Expeditions or Lincoln Navigators) that will be licensed and insured for 10, 12 or 14 passengers. The running costs of the larger cars will naturally be higher than the eight-seater cars and this will therefore be calculated into the overall price you might pay, potentially around the £300 to £400 price range.
The age of the vehicle may also be an indicator of the price you will pay for a hire. For example, the rate for an older vehicle from the 1990s may be less than a similar car from the Noughties; the features onboard and overall condition of the older car may display more signs of wear and tear compared with a newer model. However, it should be stressed this is not always the case as many operators will invest in refurbishments of their cars to ensure they are as fresh in appearance as possible.
The length of time the limousine is required for, along with the number of stops for passengers to board or alight, will also influence the overall cost of the hire. A one-hour, one-way booking will be priced lower than an evening or full-day's hire.
Journey lengths might need to be taken into account when calculating the final price quoted to a customer. As an example, a one-hour cruise and drop-off in Leicester, Solihull, Nuneaton, Rugby, Stratford-upon-Avon, Leamington Spa or other local town would be charged at a lower rate compared with a long trip to Manchester, Newcastle, Glasgow or London.
Customers can often find preferential rates during quiet periods of the week. Chauffeur car operators, like some restaurants or cinemas, may promote discounted rates for days and times of the day when their services are less likely to be in demand, such as weekday afternoons, early evenings or Sundays.
Some operators may quote a little bit extra depending on the type of event the car is booked for, should there be additional costs incurred in order to deliver the service. Examples of this may include a wedding, where the car is repleat with ribbons on the front, bows on the side and decorative flowers or a 'big night out' booking where a customer requests several bottles of chilled bubbly or soft drinks. Some operators may provide these 'extras' at no further cost so it is always best to check prior to making a booking.
While the higher prices for Leicester limo hire or elsewhere may seem a little expensive when compared with other ways to travel such as regular taxis or rideshare apps, it is important to remember that a journey in these particular vehicles is an experience all of its own, and very different to sitting in a standard saloon car or people carrier. When the cost can be shared amongst those in the party, potentially between upto 16 passengers per car, this can work out very favourably for everyone in the group. The 'filmstar' feel of the occasion should not be overlooked, drinking ice cold bubbly with the disco lighting and sound turned up, before you turn heads as you arrive at your destination!
Further benefits include a trained, professional chauffeur, a transparent pricing policy and the certainty that your transport to and from your party or venue will be there for you, all provided by a local, accountable operator.
