Who wouldn’t love to have a limo ride? In fact, riding one is the most fun part of an event. Although the idea is to have fun while traveling, there are some rules of etiquette that you must follow. Make sure you treat the driver with respect. Keep reading to know more.
Count the guests
Be sure to calculate the number of passengers that will be traveling in the car and provide this information to the company as well. In case one or two more people decide to join later, let the company know so they can provide the right vehicle.
Ask the driver to open the door.
Although this is obvious, be sure to allow the driver to open the limo door for you. This is important if you want to avoid last minute setbacks. You should sit in the empty seat. As soon as you enter, you need to find the right place for you. This will help others to enter and opt for your seat.
Do not fight
The goal of renting a limo is to party and drink. That is understood. However, it is not a good idea to drink a lot of alcohol and fight with other passengers. This is silly and can be dangerous at times. There is no question that it goes against the etiquette of the limousine.
Therefore, it is better to keep calm and enjoy the trip. After all, you haven’t paid for the service to fight your friends.
Know the rules
Most auto services prohibit smoking inside their vehicles. Therefore, you may want to follow this rule. You should speak with the manager before choosing to drink alcohol during the trip.
It is not a good idea to abuse the driver no matter what the reason is. They are doing their job and should feel safe while doing it.
Don’t fill the car with trash
After the trip, you must leave the limousine in the same condition as you found it. There should be no empty bottles, wrappers or cans. Throwing food or other things at your friends or fellow travelers is not a good idea. Make sure your shoes are not left on the seats. Before you go, don’t forget to collect all your things. Some service providers may even charge you if you have made the car interior very dirty.
Tipping the driver
In keeping with general etiquette, it is also good to tip the driver. Ideally, it should be 15% of the rental rate. It should be 20% in case the limo has been hired for a special event.
