Types of limousines
When someone says they are hiring a limousine to take them to the airport, they usually do not mean the large black or white limousine that will be rented for weddings. Odds are they are referring to a sedan type of vehicle, but because limousine companies rent the cars they are commonly referred to as limousines. The type of vehicle that you need will dictate the price that you will pay, so when considering a car for hire, carefully determine your needs ahead of time.

Cars that will take you to and from the airport or harbor for cruises will be a sedan or Town Car. These cars can comfortably seat up to four passengers. You might be able to get a fancier type of vehicle such as a Mercedes, but expect to pay more for that luxury. The limo company will usually have a flat rate to take you to the airport or harbor, but that price will depend upon the distance to the location and how many stops the driver must make to pick up passengers.
Keep in mind that six passenger limousines really seat four people comfortably. Eight passenger vehicles seats six, 10 passenger vehicles seats eight and 12 passenger vehicles seats 10 comfortably. Can you fit six people in a six-passenger limo? Yes if they happen to be very skinny people, but be objective when assessing your needs. Do you want Aunt Mable to be squished up against cousin Sarah on the way to a funeral in a limousine? No, you'll want to be sure that your passengers are comfortable. If you have larger people, then err on the side of caution and get a larger vehicle. Your passengers will be very happy that you did.
SUV limousines can fit 12-22 people depending upon the size of the vehicle that you rent. Hummers can fit 18-20 20 people. If you have a lot of people going to the airport or you have a huge wedding party you should consider renting a small shuttle bus or limousine bus that could hold 20 people. I've seen wedding parties in Coach busses and these can hold 40-50 people.
Some brides like to rent specialty cars for their special day. A Rolls Royce or a Bentley makes an elegant statement whether pulling up to a wedding reception or any other special event.
If you aren't sure what type of limousine vehicle you need, call a limo rental company and they will be happy to assist you. Before calling make sure you have a list of the number of people that you are hoping to fit into a vehicle and calculate how many of these people are children versus adults. Explain what the event will be so that the limo company can help you select a car that will be appropriate for the event.
The Hummer limousines and party busses tend to have more amenities in them than other cars. If you are looking for gaming consoles, televisions and radios then you should look into the Hummer or bus. Many limo companies can offer catering services as well as booking the car for you. This can be a time saver if you are renting a bus for a bridal party or a bachelor party. The food can already be on board!
