Greater Vancouver Transportation: Limousines
Limo rates are typically in the $75 - $200 per hour depending on the size and type of limousine you've hired. Local limousines are available in 6, 8, 10, even 14 passenger configurations. Most limousines are luxury cars like Cadillacs, Lincolns, or Viscounts, but some limo companies include specialty cars like Bentleys and Rolls Royces in their fleets. If you want something more subtle, but still chauffeured, many companies offer sedan service.
The following features are typical with most limos: tinted window glass, privacy divider (the glass that rolls up between passengers and driver), TV and VCR, a plush or leather interior, cellular phone and moon roof (powered sun roof).
Some companies require a one or three hour minimum booking (especially at certain times of the year). Some have an add-on charge for additional passenger pickups. Champagne (when it is not part of a package) and any long-distance calls on the cell phone are extra. If you are using a limo for an extended period of time, many companies will offer you a lower rate for "stand by" time. Remember that each limousine company has different services, vehicles, and prices. Ask them for details.
Many limo companies offer a variety of special packages:
- Graduations - discounted rates for students
- Weddings - including decorations, red carpet and champagne
- Concerts - transportation to and from, plus dinner
- Stags, Stagettes - book an evening, including no-lines at popular nightclubs
