Most people only ride in a limousine for special events, which means that you may not be familiar with what you can and cannot hire a limo service for. While it’s understandably easy to get caught up in the excitement, here’s some insight into what you cannot hire a limousine for.

What Are Some Things I Cannot Hire a Limousine For?
Most limo rides go off without a hitch, but when you’re partying, maybe drinking, or getting lost in the atmosphere with your friends, things might just go wrong. To avoid any incidents and to have the best possible experience, you shouldn’t do these things in your limo.
You cannot hire your limo service with the intention of shoving as many people as possible in there just to save some money on a separate limo or car ride. You can only have as many people in there as the type of limo allows.
If you need more space, you need to hire a larger limo. Having too many people inside is both unsafe and illegal.
No Drugs or Smoking
Drugs put your driver at risk, not only because you might easily get out of hand with certain drugs in your system, but also because your driver may be implicated if anything goes wrong with the authorities.
A common limo company policy is that passengers cannot smoke. The soft seats will soak in that smoke and leave the limo smelling even after you leave.
No Lewd Acts
There’s a longstanding joke about people having some “alone time” in the back of a limo, but this is still something you shouldn’t hire a limousine for. While you can raise your privacy screen so the driver won’t see you, it’s still not a great idea to do anything lewd in the back. Not just as a courtesy to your driver, but to the people who ride in there after you.
No Questionable Business Meetings
You might be looking for a secluded place to have a private business meeting—and a limo is not that place. You cannot run an escort service from a limo; no gambling rings and nothing that is illegal inside of your limo. These types of things will result in immediate cancellation of your contract and some potential jail time too.
No Underage Drinking
Some younger riders may assume that they can get away with things like alcohol since they’re in a limo. You cannot hire a limo to get around the drinking age limits, so do not try and bring alcohol if there are any underaged riders.
Don’t use your limo to let things get out of hand. This means no huge arguments, abusive behavior, or destructive messes. You need to treat your limo properly, and if you’re unsure about whether you can bring things like food with you, check your contract before you sign or just clarify with us so that you don’t run into any problems.
Hiring a limo is an amazing experience indeed. It’s an exclusive highlight for your event, allowing you and your group to enjoy yourselves.
