When it comes to planning your special event, finding a great limousine to hire is an important part of the travel experience. At Limousine King, we want you to have the most enjoyable journey in your limousine, which is why we’ve compiled these helpful tips to make booking your next limo a bit easier.
Plan the Details of your Event
Before you know which limousine to hire, you should ask yourself some questions about the event you’re attending.
- What kind of event are you attending?
- How many people will you be travelling with?
- Will you need music or entertainment during your journey?
- If you’re attending a wedding, will your limousine need a bridal door?
- Will you be bringing luggage or other accessories with you?
If you’re able to organise these details prior to booking your limousine, you’ll have a much better chance of choosing the right vehicle for your occasion.
No matter what event you’re planning, we recommend you book as early as possible.
For weddings, many people book months – possibly a year or more – in advance to secure their spot. For other important events like proms, birthdays, graduation ceremonies, or corporate events; it’s a good idea to book a month or more in advance.
By booking your limo for hire early – you’ll avoid disappointment later on.

Any limousine you hire in Melbourne should have the look of a luxury vehicle. The paint job should be very clean, while the interior and upholstery should be spotless. Your vehicle should also have plenty of space to suit your amount guests.

Meet the Chauffeur
If possible, take the time to become acquainted with your driver.
A great driver will be friendly, sociable and courteous towards you. They should be well-presented and take the time to understand our particular needs for the event. Most importantly, your chauffeurs must be licensed by the Taxi Services Commission.
If you’re lucky, your driver will go above and beyond for the event and give you a fantastic limo for hire experience in Melbourne.
Read Reviews and Testimonials
One thing you cannot judge based on the car or chauffeurs alone… is the overall experience.
Read comments, star ratings, and reviews left by previous customers.
If the company has a Facebook page, check out the reviews written there. You can also check Google, local hire websites, and the company’s own testimonial page.
When reading reviews, you should keep in mind their use of words and language. Does the review read like it was written by a real person? Be wary of any review that uses too much ‘sales talk’ or industry jargon, as they were probably written by the company themselves or an unrelated third-party.
Besides reading reviews and testimonials, you can also check the star ratings on Google and social media pages.
