An over-sized luxury vehicle comes to mind when most people think of limousines. Limos have drastically evolved over time and today, limos are offered in a variety of model types, sizes, shapes and features. As they have become an optimal mode of transportation for work events, date nights, wedding celebrations, and other special occasion, few realize the potential limos offer to consumers. With this in mind, we at A Limo World would further elaborate on the limousine itself.
Driven by a professionally trained driver called a chauffeur, a limousine often referred to as a limo is a luxury saloon car or sedan. Between the driver and the passenger is a partition that most limos have that are designed for minimal contact and privacy. Originally, a limousine is simply a generic term for sedan body style though when people hear limousine, they think of a luxury vehicle. Since they sat outside of the vehicle, the driver got the nickname chauffeur because they would wear cloaks to resist the rain and wind while the limousine was an enclosed vehicle.
Standard VS Stretch Limousine
Designed to hold multiple passengers, the modern limousine has an over-sized back seat. There are often times when between a limousine and a stretch limo are used interchangeably and few know if there is a difference. They are however, two different sizes; most standard limousines hold up to 10 people where the stretch limo holds up to 20 passengers. The next size up is usually the party bus to accommodate even more passengers and these vehicles are filled with comfort and entertainment, being a luxury vehicle.
Luxury Limousine Comfort & Designated Drivers
In most limousines and their luxury cousins, comfort is essential, so most seats are made of leather and there is always plenty of legs space. With features likely to extend to a full bar, video, audio feature, and lighting, most limousine companies include water bottle and music at the least. In limousines ensuring experience and luxury, elite drivers are at the helm. These chauffeurs are professionally trained and are very knowledgeable about the area and roads. Many people indulge in alcohol to help them get loose and minimize responsibility to increase the fun. Having the driver providing the transport allows the party to avoid risking a DUI or getting involved in an accident, and even considering driving under the influence of alcohol. A limo gives you the opportunity to indulge in your drinks while keeping you and others safe.
Vintage & Antique Cars
Where limousines are generally over-sized luxury vehicles, keep in mind not to discredit other luxury fleets. To provide a more intimate setting, there are two passenger vehicles filled with all the comforts of a limousine. There are many occasions where the smaller luxury vehicles are perfect for one or two passengers, date night, corporate meetings, anniversaries, and so much more.
