How to rent a limousine service for Prom or Graduation

Graduation is one of the most prideful moments to experience as it marks a new chapter in our lives. As graduates look forward to the main event, renting limousines are becoming a trend to celebrate the countdown with their colleagues in which they split the fees to minimize the cost and maximize the experience. Example, instead of paying for the $500 3-hour package that is good for 8 to 10 passengers, Calgary’s AM/PM Limousine would only be charging for as low as $50 each. Not only is it affordable but the company also provides flexibility to stretch out the terms of use.

Going back to the example earlier, if your itinerary would be to roam around the city from 3:00PM til 5:00PM and get dropped off at the Graduation venue, the limo driver can go back after the ceremony and use the last hour to either drive you back home or to the after-party.

If you would like to get more hours on the road capturing memories than picking up all your mates and losing the first hour of your package, agree to meet at one central house. Based from the previous batch, here is a sample itinerary for your group: Start your trip going to Crescent Heights for a marvelous view of downtown’s skyscrapers.

Head over to the Rundle Ruins at12th Avenue and 1st street S.E. for some photo-op with the sandstone ruins from the first city hospital.

You can settle down at Scotsman’s Hill which offers one of the best views overlooking the Stampede Grounds, Scotiabank Saddledome and the city’s skyline. Also, Peace Bridge is growing more popular to visit every year.

Some groups stops at the famous Peter’s drive-in for their hamburgers and replenishment.

Limos have a good stereo system where you can plug and play your mobile phone and pump up the music. Drivers usually have an aux cord available but you could always bring one just in case.

A few reminders when using a rented vehicle : Though driving around could be a little exhausting, avoid eating inside the limousine as there would be a clean up charge if the vehicle gets really dirty. AM/PM Limo charges $500 in order to highly discourage passengers and avoid the inconvenience. The reason why Limo companies have very strict rules when it comes to underage drinking inside the vehicle is due to immediate termination of the company’s license. Limo drivers enforces the drinking policy and might leave you out the limo party if you got caught.Choose to bring some juice or soft drinks instead.You can always have some fun in the after-party.

Love is in the air!

When planning your wedding budget, remember to think about transportation for yourselves and possibly your guests.

A typical wedding for a limousine company would include picking the groom & groomsmen up, then returning to get the bride and bridesmaids. The driver would decorate your car, get the ice bucket filled and champagne chilling. When you come outside, your limousine is waiting to whisk you off for pictures and then to your reception.

We can arrange a shuttle service for your guests at the end of the evening for a safe ride home. We can also set up an intimate sedan ride for the bride & groom to their hotel at the end of the night.
