Busy London Limos...
When planning any sort of function, party or event, you know you have to book everything early, the venue, the caterers and of course the limousines. In a fast growing and vibrant city such as London, limousines are becoming more and more popular for all kinds of events and while there are numerous types of limousines and many limo hire companies in our capital, if you leave booking your limo to the last minute you may have trouble finding the perfect limo.
So ideally, you should book your limo or fleet of limos well in advance of your event, usually 6-8 months before. However, this is not always possible for any number of reasons, so you may only have a short amount of time to find the perfect limousine for your event.
This is why it is good to know the typically busy times of the year, week and day as this ensures that if you are organising limousines at the last minute, you can try to book your event at a time which is typically slow for limo hire companies and therefore have more chance of getting the limousine you want.
For example, many weddings are held in spring and early summer when the weather is more likely to be fine. Therefore many limo hire companies will be booked heavily at this time of the year. So too towards the end of the year as this is the time of year many proms are scheduled to celebrate the end of school. Also, there will be a lot of limos booked for Christmas parties and end of year dinners.
During the week tends to be less busy for limo hire companies than weekends and some limo hire companies may even offer you a discount for limos booked during the week as opposed to the weekend. Most of all, it depends on the type of limo hire that the limo hire company you are looking at specialises in as this will determine their busy times.
However, if you are booking a limousine for an event in London, being such a busy city means there is a larger number of limo hire companies. The London limo hire companies are also more accustomed to the busy nature of limo hire and are often able to cope with busy times of the year, late booking notice and are able to source limousines from companies outside of London if necessary.
