We understand there are many considerations for both parents and their kids when figuring out which vehicle option is best.

Plan in Advance of the Big Event

Ensuring you find the right prom vehicle often depends on factors such as number of passengers, number of hours you’ll need the transportation and the distance you’ll be traveling. While a party bus limo option might better suit a group of 15 or more, if you are traveling with a smaller group of say 2 to 4 people, you may be better off booking a smaller vehicle. The more information you can provide up front will make a huge difference in the experience. Before making your reservation, make sure you have provided the correct information up front so you are choosing from the right selection of vehicles.

Factor in Service Level as Well as Price

While price is always an important consideration, it shouldn’t be the only consideration when choosing the best prom transportation. Similar to booking a hotel, different price points often mean different levels of service. It’s good to have a budget in mind in advance of your event, but you also want to have an idea of the type of service level you expect.

Try to book a prom vehicle that has room for at least one to two more people than are in your party – especially if having a lot of space is a concern.
