Proper limousine etiquette while making the most of your adventure
Celebrating a special occasion with a limousine trip is not only memorable, but an incredibly fun and decadent experience. A limousine ride is definitely not the standard method of travel, so it is advisable to be aware of the proper etiquette. There is a lot to consider, so this guide will outline the do’s and don’ts of limousine etiquette, from what type of service to expect, to the rules of the ride. So, if you are a little unsure about your luxury limousine experience, read on!
Draw out a map of your journey
Sometimes, limousine drivers will have to pick up multiple people from different locations. So, it is really useful to make a map and draw out plans for your driver. Better yet, make this information available ahead of time so that your driver knows where you are going. This will help ensure a safe, streamlined journey for you and your entire party.
Although it is seen as a romantic gesture to open the door for your date, you should let the driver do this task. Not only is it generally safer but also it adds an extra level of class and luxury to your experience.
Don’t bring your own booze
It is more than likely that your limousine will be stocked with some form of alcohol for you to consume, unless of course you are underage. If you are not of legal drinking age, it is advised that you refrain from any alcohol. Our drivers have a keen eye for underage drinking and it could land you in hot water if you’re caught out. In fact, all limousine services should have a zero tolerance policy when it comes to under age alcohol consumption. So, do not risk it!
Plan for a pickup
Once your magical evening out comes to a close, there is no better way to conclude affairs than with a luxury limousine ride home. Just to be safe, confirm with the driver in advance about pick up times and locations.
To tip or not to tip?
Tipping for excellent service can be a sticky situation if you don’t know how much to tip. The general rule of thumb is stick with token amounts, which are $10 for solid service or $20 for something extra special. At the end of the day our recommendation is to only tip if you have received exemplary service from your driver.
