Your special occasion calls for transportation and your party needs a ride. Do you choose a limousine or a party bus rental? A lot depends on the size of your group and what amenities you will require.

Limousine vs. Party Bus — the Pros & Cons

Limousine Rentals

The advantages of renting a limo begin with the world-class luxury experience that such a stylish vehicle provides. Even the most spectacular occasions are enhanced by the classic elegance of a black, white, (or pink!) limousine.

A limousine is a good option if you need room for 8-10 passengers (such as with a Lincoln stretch limo,) or up to 20 passengers, (such as with a Hummer or Suburban limo.)

The limo may be a more affordable hourly option than a party bus since fewer passengers will need to be accommodated.

Benefits at-a-glance:

  • Style & luxury
  • Choice of amenities & state-of-the-art technology
  • Priced to fit smaller group sizes

The downside of a limousine is that the ride is more compact; while the interior is spacious, passengers can’t stand, walk around or dance in it, and there is less room to accommodate large garments or baggage. If your group of traveling companions will want room to move freely about the interior of the ride, then a party bus would be a better option for you.

The biggest advantage of the party bus is just that; you get to partyThis vehicle is also stylish and elegant, but with plenty of space to move around, dance, and socialize with your companions.

The party bus is a suitable vehicle choice for larger parties of 14 – 30 passengers. While the hourly party bus rental rate is higher than that of hiring a limousine, this rental may actually be the more affordable option because riders often split the cost, which means relatively little out-of-pocket expense for everyone.

The party bus rental provides ample room for large garments, (such as wedding attire,) and storage space for personal belongings. The available amenities and on-board technologies further enhance your party-on-the-road, for an overall exhilarating travel experience.

Benefits at-a-glance:

  • Ample space and storage
  • Choice of amenities & state-of-the-art technology
  • Safe, secure travel for larger groups
  • Easy to afford when riders split the cost of the fare

The downside of renting a party bus is…. well, there really is no downside — except that it may be more vehicle than you need if you’re traveling with a smaller group of passengers. If you don’t need as much space, the limousine is likely a better option for your needs.
