Understanding Limo Hire Prices

Limo hire prices in Sydney, Melbourne, and Australia wide are based on a number of different factors. Whatever the occasion, it is important to understand that limo prices are different in Sydney, Melbourne, and all other states in Australia. Hire prices are not a set rate and it is important to plan your journey to make the most of the limo hire experience.

Occasion, number of passengers, transport duration (hours), and destination are all important when selecting a vehicle and calculating limo hire prices. If the occasion is something with high risk of spills or damage, such as a birthday party, then the limo hire price will be higher to compensate for this. Each vehicle type has a different seating capacity, therefore, the number of passengers has a direct influence on your limo hire price. Like many goods and services, economies of scale also applies to limo hire Melbourne prices and all other states in Australia. To simplify, the longer your transport duration, the cheaper your limo hire price will be. Pick up and drop off destination are a major consideration for limousine drivers. Driving to your pick up destination may outweigh the benefit of providing the limo hire service if you live in regional Australia. If you live in these areas and are interested in limo hire, drivers will advise you to meet them at a pick up destination that is closer to their depot.

Price should not be the only criterion when selecting a limo hire service. Age of the vehicle, driver experience, and additional features should also be considered. Many limo hire prices include champagne and chocolates to celebrate the occasion.

Major sporting events such as grand finals create high demand for limo hire. Booking your limo in advance will allow you to avoid the rush and take advantage of normal hire prices. Another example of where high demand increases limo hire prices is the Christmas period, especially in Melbourne. Stretch Hummer hire Melbourne prices increase because they can transport the largest number of passengers and are the cheapest option for work and office Christmas parties.

If you are travelling to a destination that your driver is unfamiliar with or have multiple stops in your journey, provide directions to your driver to avoid traffic and getting lost. You will rarely experience these problems, but directing your driver on the day will cause errors and also increase the limo hire price. If you go outside of your requested travel duration, limo prices increase dramatically as it interferes with the drivers other bookings.

Finally, as a general rule, limo hire prices are cheaper Monday to Wednesday as this is considered to be off peak.
