There are a lot of reasons why people choose a Chicago limo rental company. Not only do you get to ride around in style, but you have the opportunity to converse with the driver and find out a local’s perspective of the beautiful city of Chicago.
I’ll go ahead and give you a little background of Chicago so that you can know some things about Chicago before you visit. Chicago is the third largest city in the United States.
There are two major airports in Chicago: Ohare International and Chicago Midway. Ohare airport has consistently maintained the title of “Best Airport in North America” by two major travel magazines.
In 2010 alone, they had 66,665,390 passengers pass through Ohare International. It is the third busiest airport in the world! With that many people passing through two airports in Chicago, the infrastructure of the city surrounding the airports has to be able to maintain large amounts of travelers.
Hotels, transportation, restaurants, and other traveling businesses have swarmed to the Chicago area because of the amount of travelers. My favorite part, as I mentioned before, is the Chicago limo rental services available in the area.
Here are some helpful tips if you are considering visiting the area, or if you are passing through Chicago for a business trip.
1. Most of the Chicago limo rental services available have special airport rates. Limo services will typically charge the minimum hourly rates during the week rather than the base price for an event. Each limo service differs in their rates, but a businessman who wants a Chicago limo rental will usually have an easier time of it on a weekday because of the lack of events, and high demand that the weekend usually garners.
2. Chicago limo rental companies will typically have different kinds of limos. Do you want the style and elegance of a luxury sedan or a Lincoln Limousine? Do You want the bold statement of a Hummer limousine? Are you traveling with friends and want a Party Bus to show you the great night life and entertainment that Chicago has? There are so many options available so it’s best to choose one that will fit the amount of people you have in your group and the style in which you intend to tour the city.
3. Try to make your reservations as early as possible. You want to make sure that you have the best limousine available, so planning in advance helps you and the Chicago limo rental service out greatly.
4. Do your research. In this economy, you need to make an informed and intelligent decision about the company you are using. Check for hourly rates, cancellation fees, extra hour charges, amenities fees, etc. There are other added benefits to having a limousine from a Chicago limo rental company. The advantage of having a driver is obvious. If you are a businessman, you may need to refresh your presentation of a proposal, or go over some notes about a deal. If you are on a family vacation, you may want to spend your time looking at all of the great sights rather than worrying about stop lights and street signs.
Drivers can also take you to lesser-known tourist attractions and give you a real Chicago experience, rather than the typical sites that every tourist sees. Plus, who doesn’t enjoy riding around in style? By renting a limo, you make a statement of style and opulence that few others can compete with.
I like to use limousines for all of these reasons. There are so many options available, and, if you find the right company, limousines are a very economic way to travel. With all of the benefits that limousines offer, it would be foolhardy to travel any other way.
