Limo Prices: How to Calculate The Cost Of Your Rental

The actual prices of your limousine rentals will be based on:

Type of Vehicle

You have many different options when choosing the type of limo you want to rent. And of course, the type of limousine you choose plays a significant role in the final cost. For example, if you're looking for a newer model with all the bells and whistles, you can expect to pay more than if you were just looking for a basic vehicle that will get your group from point A to point B. You can choose from a variety of types of limos here at Price4Limo including:

- Stretch limos: This is the most common type of limo with room for up to 10 people. Popular models include the Chrysler 300 stretch, Lincoln town car stretch, Charger limousine, and challenger limo. These are the most affordable options since they are the smallest. Average rates are between $80-$210 per hour.

- Escalade limo: This option is larger than a stretch limo and comes with more features, making it more expensive. These hold 15-20 passengers and are classified. Average rates are between $120-$250 per hour.

- Hummer limo: A Hummer limo is similar in size and capacity to an Escalade limo, both of which are considered SUV limos. This is one of the most popular types of limos out there and generally has the highest demand out of all stretches, so you can expect the price to be higher than most other rentals. Average rates are between $160-$300 per hour.


In major cities, where more people want to go and where there are more limo services, you will probably find it easier to get a good deal on your transportation. However, if you're planning a trip to a smaller town or city with less demand for cars, you may have fewer available options and might have to pay more for your trip—or even have trouble finding one at all. The availability of limos also varies depending on where you want to be picked up. Your quote depends heavily on your starting and ending locations as well—and also how far apart they are from each other so have your pick up and drop off locations handy. If you want to compare rates for multiple companies at once, you can use our pricing tool which will show you prices in an instant. Just enter your city and date of travel and get pricing from various vendors.

Day of week

Limo services are more popular on weekends than on weekdays, so the cost per hour and minimum number of hours for rentals will be higher on Fridays and Saturdays than on Sundays - Thursday.

Time of day

The time you want the limo will change the price a lot. The reason for this is because demand for limos fluctuates throughout the day. In the morning, there are fewer people looking for a ride and prices tend to be lower. However, as the day progresses into afternoon and evening, more people want to go out and get their party on—and that means more limo companies are competing with each other for customers. As a result, rates rise as demand increases.

Duration of your trip

The most important factor in determining your limousine rental price is the number of hours you need. A typical limousine rental is charged at an hourly rate. This means that you'll pay for every hour the vehicle is in your possession which varies by trip and would include wait time for some events such as weddings, sports games, etc. It's important to remember that some companies will require minimum requirements of time before they'll let you rent their vehicles. If this is the case with your chosen company, then try to book extras so that you can save money by renting for longer periods of time. You may also want to check if they offer any discounts if you rent for longer periods of time—some companies offer discounts after six hours or more (but not all). You can check out the different hourly packages available in your city by using our quote tool where you can check out the minimums and available discounts.

Time of year

Most industries have their peak and off seasons, and the same is true of limousine rentals. The cost of a limo can vary greatly depending on the time of year, so you should keep this in mind when planning your wedding or other event. Depending on where you live, there may be more demand for limousines during certain times of the year—for example, New York City sees more people get limousines in summer than it does in winter since the snow and cold weather prevents many events from happening. As a result, the price of a limo rental will depend on when you actually rent. A good rule of thumb is to expect rates to be higher during April-June as this is wedding and prom season, as well as September-November since this is the sporting season. Booking in advance will help you find a vehicle at the best rate.

Type of package or event

When booking a limo rental, it's important to consider the type of event you're going to and the date of your reservation. There are so many different types of packages offered, from day rates to sporting events to airport transfers to name a few. In general, proms, weddings and New Year's Eve are the most expensive events that you can rent for.

Some general event pricing is as follows*:

  • $100 to $260 per hour
  • $650 to $1,200 per night
  • $700 to $1,600 for weddings
  • $800 to $1,700 for proms
  • $1,000 to $2,200 for New Years Eve

*Due to covid-19 Prices may be significantly higher and may vary depending on availability, service, and location

Travel required

When you travel in a limo, you want to make sure that you get your money's worth. That's why it's important to understand how much mileage and travel time will impact your limo price. The more distance you need to cover, the higher your price will be. A longer trip means more gas, more wear and tear on the vehicle, and other variables that can increase the overall cost of your ride.

How many trips you take

There’s a difference between one way trips and round trip service. When you go round trip, you return back to where you started while when you do a one way or get dropped off at a different city at the end of your trip, you’re likely to incur deadhead charges. This is the travel time it takes the limousine to get back to its home base. Another term for this is billing garage to garage. When you are putting together your trip you need to keep this in mind so you will not be surprised to hear about this charge when you get your quote from our team. It’s usually better to do a round trip so you can take advantage of this time.

How to Keep Costs Down

Now that you know what determines the price of your limousine rental, let’s look at some ways on how you can save money with Price4Limo.

Get a final headcount. Knowing the exact number of people that will be riding in the limo is important and if you let our sales representative know, they will be able to show you the pricing options for limos of that size. The larger the limo you get, the more you’ll pay so it’s important to avoid having too many empty seats.

Consider the price per person. While the total price may look like a large number upfront, if you break down the pricing by person you will realize that they are actually very affordable. For example, a 20 passenger Hummer limo rental package of 4 hours at $1200 is just $60 a person.

Book early. All vehicles are on a first come first serve basis. The longer you wait to reserve, the worse prices and options will be left. We would recommend booking at least 2 or 3 months in advance which will help lock you into the best rates.

Book during the offseason or weekdays. If you have flexibility for your event, you can save money if you book during the months of January through March, and November through December, and also during the weekdays. These times are less busy and can help you score some huge savings.

Talk to an agent before booking. On our site you are fully able to go on and book a vehicle without having to speak to an agent but we would recommend speaking to our team. They will be able to help pick the best custom package for you and apply any discounts if applicable. For multiple day trips, or if you are renting multiple cars, you can likely get a discount by calling our team first.
