Planning on renting a limo for an upcoming occasion? Renting a limousine is a way to make your presence is known and gives you the extra wow factor. Whether it is for business or pleasure- here are some etiquette when renting a limo.
Determine how many people are riding and the cost that’s varies within different types of limos. If you’re in between the number of people, always go for the one with a bigger capacity to make sure everyone is comfortable.
Don’t be late- as it may make the driver late for another appointment. Try to stick to your allotted time and be mindful of the driver’s schedule.
Let the driver know in advance the addresses or exact directions of who needs to be picked up on the trip. This will save you time and make sure you arrive to your event on time.
Behave properly. Follow the basic rule: do unto others what you want done to you- and treat your driver with respect. Avoid the use of loud profanity or lewd language that may distract the driver. Also be mindful of the interior of the limo. Refrain from damaging any inside parts of the limo- from the seats to electronics.
When you get to your destination, sit back, relax, and let the chauffeur open the door for you and everyone else.
When your trip has ended, it’s good manners to make sure you leave the limo as clean as it can be. Treat the rental, as it is your own car, and leave it the same condition as you found it.
Last but not the least- make sure you add 15-20 percent gratuity for the driver. It’s always nice to tip your limo driver in cash as discreetly as possible before concluding your trip.
By following these simple rules, you can make sure your rental goes smoothly.
