Getting ready for prom is almost like getting ready for a wedding. There are lots of things you need to consider making reservations for even before tickets even go on sale. Out of all the things you need to consider, make sure transportation to and from prom is one of them.
Your pictures will have the perfect classic backdrop and parents will be happy knowing that someone is chauffeuring their child around town safely. If you’re looking to make a limo reservation, here are our tips you need to consider when it comes to determining when you should make a reservation.
OTHER EVENTS TAKING PLACE
In Central Indiana, prom season can be as early as April, but most are sometime in May. But as any Hoosier knows, May in Indiana is when the weather starts getting warmer and the Indycars start revving their engines. Pay attention to what festivities are going on all over Indianapolis and how close they are to your prom’s venue. This could limit the availability of some limousine companies because of an influx of drivers needed. May is also the beginning of the wedding season. Brides and grooms are also going to be searching for services that will transport them in style to their wedding.
With all this competition for luxury driving services, we at Avant Garde recommend booking your prom reservation 3 months in advance to guarantee your reservation. If you think that’s too early to make a reservation, just remember that girls buy their dresses around February-March so they have time to get alterations done. So if you’re going to commit to a date and a dress 3 months ahead of time, you can commit to a limousine at that time too.
THE SIZE OF YOUR SCHOOL AND NEIGHBORING SCHOOLS
If your school has a large population of students in your class, then booking a limo in advance is another reason why you should make reservations 3 months in advance. Other students will also be requesting limos for prom too, so make sure you get your request in early to get an edge on the competition. Another thing to also consider is when other neighboring schools are having their proms. If there are multiple proms happening on the same night, you might have some extra competition you didn’t consider.
If you’re a student that wants to impress their prom date with a limo, dinner, tickets, a new dress or tuxedo rental, and flowers, prom night can get expensive fast. One of the best ways you can save is by locking in your reservation early before rates rise. The longer you wait to reserve your ride, the more likely the price will increase to meet demand. This is another reason why it is better to book so far in advance because you can lock in a good rate.
NUMBER OF PEOPLE RIDING IN THE LIMO
Prom can be an intimate affair between high school sweethearts, or it can be a big bash with all your friends. The number of people that are in your party riding in the limousine can determine how big of a vehicle you will need. Our fleet contains intimate Cadillacs to party buses that can carry up to 16 people. So make sure you got a vehicle that best fits your group. If you’re planning on attending an after-party, getting a bus or a limo is a great way to guarantee everyone’s safety.
