As the school prom season nears its final days, it has been yet another record year for school prom limo hire in the London area as indeed it has for the rest of the United Kingdom. There have been more limo bookings for school proms this year than in any other year. At one point limousines had to be drafted in from the United States to cope with the massive demand. This allowed the vast majority of school prom goers the chance to enjoy their most important day of the year.
The busiest school prom days particularly with the Manchester area were the 26th and 27th June, with the 4th July being a close second. Pretty much every limousine in England was rented out for a school prom on these days. Many limousine companies north of the border in Glasgow and Edinburgh were used to cover the demand.
The favourite of the limousines that were rented for school proms this year was undoubtedly the H2 Hummer limo. Black, white, yellow and pink Hummer H2 limousines were all hired as well as the massive 8 wheeler Hummer H2 in silver. Other popular limousines included the Audi limousine which made its debut this year, the Porsche Cayenne limo and Range Rover Sport limousine. Of the 8 seater limousines the Baby Bentley was far and away the most popular limousine, particularly the Baby Bentley limos equipped with Lamborghini doors. The Lincoln Town Car limos, Excursion limousines and Navigator limousines were generally only hired when the other more popular limousines such as the Hummers and Baby Bentleys were not available.
School proms are only a recent idea in the UK, adopted from the United States, but they are proving to be very popular and the busiest time of the year for the limousine industry. Limousines are synonymous with school proms and will always be popular as long as there is a school prom to go to. It will be fascinating to see which limousine will become the most popular next year and if there will be any new additions to hit the market. There is already talk of a massive 50 seater Party Bus limousine and the Audi Q7 limousine overtaking the Hummer H2 limo as the most popular. Watch this space.
In the mean time here are some top tips for school prom limousine hire.
- Always book your school prom limousine in as early as possible. Indeed as soon as you are given the date of the prom you should book the limo. Not only does this avoid disappointment but you may get a much better deal than if left last minute.
- Always try and ensure you have enough people to fill up the limousine. Some limos such as the Hummer H2 limo can carry up to 20 people. Therefore the price per head will be a lot less than if you only have 10 people.
- Make sure you double check a limo operator's credentials. Is there a company number on the website and company address? Should a limousine company offer you a very cheap price be wary as they may let you down at the last minute should a better offer come along.
Finally have fun, this is the most important day of the year.
