Houston limo vs town-car

Choosing Between a Limo and a Town Car

Once deciding to arrange for chauffeured transportation in Houston many may find it somewhat difficult to decide if a stretch limo is what we require or that a Houston town car will best suit our needs. We have gathered for you a list of things to consider in order to help you asses which of these options will serve you best.

Number of Passengers

The most obvious difference between a stretch limo and a town car is their capacity so far as the number of people they are licensed to seat. While a town car is essentially a sedan with a max capacity of five (including chauffeur), a stretch limo can naturally accommodate a much larger party; an executive stretch will seat 6-8 passengers, a super stretch 10 and an ultra-stretch 14, there are also suv's and hummer's in which up to 20 people can ride.

If it is important for you to have your whole group ride together you will need to arrange for a large enough vehicle. It is important to take into consideration just how much "personal space" you wish to provide. If you feel that crowding together is not an issue don't hesitate to fill a Houston limo or a town car to its maximum registered capacity, you will find that each passenger will have a comfortable seat all for their own.

Negotiating Traffic

The town car being a vehicle of ordinary size is easier to imagine weaving in and out of traffic but you will be surprised at how well a stretch limo can do when driven expertly. Still, if getting there fast is an important issue a town car holds an advantage over a limo. If you are more than four and wish to be driven as swiftly as possible you should consider using two cars or more, as the case may be.

Since all drivers are similarly proficient at negotiating Houston's sometimes challenging traffic conditions you will find that you arrive just minutes apart at the most.

Plain Luxury

If spoiling yourselves is what you are after there is no doubt that a limo is a way to go. A limo is a vehicle built to provide a luxurious ride. You may want to investigate a little regarding the features in the Houston limo you will be getting. Just ask the dispatcher when calling to book, a Houston limo company's web site will also usually provide detailed descriptions, sometimes along with photographs.

Finally, there is the matter of price. The most important factor regarding expense is who will be picking up the bill. While paying for a limo all by yourself may prove costly, if you will each be paying their own way the price per person may prove lower than you expect.
