Here is a list of most asked questions to help you decide which car service, limo or hummer service to get. Please feel free to book today and call us for any special needs or quotes for your group.
How Much Does it Cost to Rent a Limo?
Pricing varies usually by make, model and time. A normal limo rental on a weekday for three hours, including door to door service round trip for a town car starts at $250. A stretch limo rental for 3 hours would be around $398, a Hummer limo at $598. Sprinter Vans, and Expeditions would be about $450. Week end rates would go up. Of course, each trip is custom made to your needs so pricing will vary, but this is the ballpark you can expect to pay for limo rental service in the DC area.
What's the Difference between a Limo Broker and a Car Service Carrier?
A Broker connects you with other limo services. One common broker is Limos.com. When you use a broker, you have no idea what kind of limo will actually show up. A broker has no knowledge of the condition of the car you are renting, nor the quality of the driver. All the reviews that are posted on Limos.com are positive ones. They will not post severe bad reviews of the operators. A majority of the limo operators on that site have old and out of date limos and most of the amenities don’t work.
Presidential Limo is a Carrier. This means we own and maintain our own fleet of limos, hummers, buses and vans to rent. We have strict quality control over the limos we rent, and expect the highest customer
Can We Smoke and Eat in the Limousine?
In order to keep our limousine rental fleet pristine, all our vehicles are non-smoking. No food is allowed in the limos, but you may have beverages such as water, soda, beer, wine and champagne. No sugar based drink mixes are allowed.
Do You Require a Deposit to Rent a Limo?
Presidential Limousine requires 50% non- refundable deposit at the time of reservation, if the reservation is 30 days outside of the event date. Balances are due 30 days prior to the event date. You can also choose to prepay. We accept major credit cards.
What If The Vehicle Breaks Down?
We maintain a fleet of limos that are no older than 5 years old, so the likelihood of breakdown is small. In extremely rare cases like a flat tire, or in the event of any breakdown, that portion of the time the vehicle is in-operable will be refunded to the client or you can have that down time at the end to make up for the lost time.
Presidential Limo is not responsible for things outside our control like road closures, accidents, traffic, etc.
What if My Plans Change?
Changes are not a problem. Dates and address change MUST be emailed to us. There will usually be no charge for an address change if it is in the same city or adjacent town. Address changes the same day of service are strongly discouraged. In the event of a cancellation, your deposit would be non-refundable. Cancellations within 30 days of service may result in a 100% charge. We cannot change the date of the service to another date. No exceptions!!
Is Presidential Limo Licensed and Insured?
Presidential Limousine has been in business for over a 30 years. We have the proper licensing and carry $5 Million in coverage on all of our vehicles.
Where Will I Be Picked Up?
Presidential Limo offer door-to-door service, which means we will be happy to pick you up and drop you off right where we start. All runs that we quote over the phone include up to 3 pickup address, 3 destination points and 3 drop off’s at the end of the night. Anything else may be subject to extra fee’s due to the cost involved. (Proms: 2 pickup addresses, 2 drop offs and up to 3 destination points).
Many cities also prohibit buses from going down minor roads (such as suburban roads). So for all Party Bus runs we prefer only 1 pick-up address and 1 drop at the end of the night. Please note that all runs involving the consumption of alcohol can’t begin in any parking lot where everyone has to get back in their vehicles at the end of the night and drive off.

How Far in Advance Should I Reserve a Limo?
Presidential Limousine suggests you make the reservation as soon as possible to ensure the availability and choice of limousine for your special event.
Generally, advanced notice of 7 to 10 days is required to schedule an hourly service. Because the limo industry is route-based, it can be difficult to find a matching run for your limo on short-notice.
Expedited pick-ups (with less than 7 day advanced notice) can be arranged but changes or errors increases from last minute communication. Weddings should be scheduled at least 3 months in advance if possible to assure availability for your preferred date.

Presidential Limo’s sick fee is up to $500 per incident. So please make sure you let your guests know this is something that you will be holding them responsible for if you have to pay this costs.
Unfortunately we only have our contract with one person, and we require all runs involving alcohol to be held with a credit card security deposit of at least $500.00.
How Does Overtime Work?
Presidential Limo’s overtime starts after 10 minutes of the scheduled drop off time and is charged by the whole hour and not not pro-rated. It is important to understand that the time does not stop when we pulled up in front of your final drop off location. Time stops when everyone one has existed the vehicle with all their belongings and are completely finished with the vehicle including taking any additional pictures.
What Kind Of Training Do Your Drivers Have?
All our drivers have commercial class B or A endorsements along with Passenger Endorsements for all limos greater than 10 Passengers. This means they have gone through the DMV written commercial driver’s test and passed as well as a behind the wheel examination.
All Presidential chauffeurs go through 2 weeks of training both in class and out in the field going with other experienced chauffeurs. It takes a special type of person to be handle all different crowd types from teenagers to retired adults and we look for the best there is in the business!
