Living it Up on New Year’s Eve… Who’s Doing the Driving?

New Year's EveAround the globe, revelers of all ages celebrate New Year’s Eve in numerous ways; turning out for dazzling fireworks displays, hitting exciting hot-spots in the city, attending festive parties with friends, family and work colleagues.

One common factor among celebrants, regardless of which activities they prefer, is they all have to get from here to there for their celebrations. Unless you live next door to where the fireworks are going off, or just down the block from the hottest nightclub in town, you’re likely going to need a ride to attend whatever events you have planned for the evening.

While traffic patterns may differ depending on where you spend your holiday, driving here in Alberta can be challenging on such an occasion. Drivers are more likely to encounter hassles such as:

  • Heavy traffic – long lines and traffic snarls can delay your planned recreation and put a damper on an otherwise jubilant celebration.
  • Road closures – when fireworks displays and other city-sponsored celebrations are underway, certain roadways are closed and inaccessible to all but pedestrians.
  • Harsh climate – Snow, sleet and black ice can all contribute to hazardous driving conditions; only experienced drivers who are familiar with the proper navigation of such perils should be on the road on nights like these.

Additionally, even the most experienced drivers may enjoy ringing in the new year with a sparkling glass of champagne or a lively cocktail, (or three!) So, who gets behind the wheel when everyone in your party plans to partake in alcoholic delights?

Do you draw straws to see who gets stuck being the designated driver? If so, someone with a short straw is going to be disappointed that they can’t enjoy a drink on this night.

Here’s another idea: Hire someone else to do the driving. If you hadn’t thought about it, consider how much MORE fun your entire group can have when you rent a limo or party bus… and nobody gets stuck fighting traffic – or staying sober, (not to mention that when you hire your ride, you can pop the champagne while you’re still on the road!)

Furthermore, it’s very affordable to rent a chauffeured limo, party bus or SUV in Alberta. When everyone in your group pitches in for the fare, the cost can be as low as $10 per person, depending on which vehicle you rent and how many passengers are in your party. When you consider the cost of gasoline and parking fees, you may actually SAVE money by hiring your ride… it’s a true win-win!

Wouldn’t you prefer to live it up for the night and not have to worry about traffic and road hazards? Renting a limo or party bus will not only ensure your group’s safety and security, it will also make your night FEEL more celebrational as you ride in style and luxury, and totally free of stress.
