Prom is one of the most magical nights in an adolescent’s life. You’ve probably dreamed of basking under the spotlight during your prom. Well, nothing turns heads faster than coming in a regal limousine.
July seems like a little too early to start planning your ride to prom, but it’s a good idea to do so if you truly want that “perfect night”. With that in mind, here are a few tips for finding the right limousine:
Off to an early start
Yes, you’ll want to start looking as early as now. After all, the last thing you want is to have your choices severely limited because you started your search too late, such as what happened to Lauren of Seventeen Magazine:
“Last year my group didn’t think about booking a limo until the last minute and we were horrified to find that all of the limos in our town were gone—the nearest one to rent was three hours away!
Since proms frequently fall on the same weekend, you may be competing for a small number of limos with neighboring high schools. Beat the crowd and book it a few months in advance!”
Visit a trusted Indianapolis limo service like Antique Limousine of Indianapolis over your summer vacation since most of their limos should be on display by then. Afterward, you can take your time to decide which limo meets your needs the best—just make sure you still book the vehicle several months ahead of your prom.
Fill ‘er up
Limos can be a bit pricey, especially if you and your date are the only ones who will be riding it. You can cushion the expenses by seeing if your friends are willing to share a limousine service in Indianapolis.
An important reminder: collect your friends’ share of the payment a month or two before the prom. No shows, breakups, etc. can make collection difficult, something that might draw the ire of your parents.
If you or any of the other passengers are below the legal drinking age, alcohol is strictly prohibited in the vehicle. Many limo services have a clause that renders a contract null and void on the spot if you, your date, or any of your friends bring alcoholic beverages. The risk of being left without a ride to and from prom isn’t worth it.
