Different Types of Limousines

Updated on July 16, 2009

Limousine Types, Brands and Styles

There are many different types of limousines. I have created a list to elaborate on different types of limousines. I love limos, personally. They are the epitome of class and comfort. Whether it is a birthday party you are planning, a wedding, or just a night on the town, be sure to rent the limo that is right for you. Fortunately for those who love to ride around in style, there are limo companies located around the world from the rural plains of Oklahoma to the Rocky Mountains of Denver, Colorado. The most popular countries for limousines are the United States of America, Austrailia, the UK and Canada. France has some limo companies as well but they do not have prom so the limo companies to choose from are limited. As technology progresses, new limo's are coming out such as large luxury SUV limos like the hummer limo, and eco friendly green limos or hybrid limousines.

The Eco Friendly Limo

The "Green" Environmentally Friendly Limo

With increased awareness of greenhouse gas emissions, global warming, and the damage being done to the ozone layer, most people are starting to take action. A limo that does the least amount of damage to the environment is favorable, even if it costs an extra buck or two to rent. Some eco friendly limousines do not have a price difference and some are even cheaper than a regular luxury vehicle, due to the fact that the company would be spending less on gas. There are some companies that only rent eco friendly luxury vehicles, and some that have the option of an environmental safe car for hire. Even if a company isn't advertising a gas efficient or hybrid limo, chances are they can and are willing to consult you as to the best option for a limo that will do the least amount of damage to the planet. Whatever type of limo, luxury, car hire or livery and chauffer service you choose to go through, inquiring as to whether there is a hybrid or alternative energy option, or which limo is the most gas efficient is the eco conscious thing to do!

The Tank Limo

Military Inspired Limousines

Basically, you aren't going to mess with the tank limo. More popular in the UK, the tank limo is a rare find but there are high school students who take it to prom and people who use it for their wedding. A good candidate for a luxury tank limo would be newlyweds that are veterans or participated in the military. Another crowd the tank limo is popular with is the high school crowd. After all what is cooler than an indestructible tank limousine? Talk about turning heads! Typically tank limos come in white but they can come in all colors and sizes.

The Hummer Limo

The Most Accomadating Limo

Hummer limos are really neat because not only are they aesthetically pleasing on the outside, they are very accomadating on the inside due to their massive size. Hummer limos come in all shapes and sizes and can squeeze in quite a few people. I have seen a hot pink Hummer limo, a baby pink Hummer limo, a bright yellow Hummer limo, a Zebra striped Hummer limo, a green Hummer limo...and many more. This is all in addition to the traditional spacious Hummer limo that comes in black or gray. Many of the newer Hummer limos have doors that open vertically as opposed to symmetrically. Nowadays you can rent a Hummer limo from almost any limousine company that rents out limos and luxury cars.

Convertible Limo

Enjoy the Weather and the Luxury at the Same Time

If it is a beautiful summer day or night, why not get a convertible limo instead of an indoor limousine? Show off your style on a beautfiul summer day. The only downfall to a convertible limo is that it is not practical for all seasons or temperatures. A convertible limo with the top down is gold when cruising down Sunset in California, or enjoying a scenic drive along the coast in Florida. There aren't very many limo companies that offer the convertible style limousine, and the ones that do are typically located in areas with warmer climates. Feel the wind in your hair and the sun on your skin and experience convertible limo euphoria!

Jacuzzi Limousines

Rent a Limo With a Hot Tub!

Experience the utmost comfort and luxury with a limo that contains a hot tub. Limos with jacuzzis and whirlpools traditionaly are open top convertible style - so be sure to schedule a time when you think the weather is going to be nice. Just make sure it isn't too hot, jacuzzi's can heat up your body temperature very quickly. A limo with a jacuzzi is not recommended for a pregnant woman by most doctors, but that is because jacuzzi's/whirlpools/hot tubs are too warm for a developing fetus. If you have control over the temperature and it does not heat up too much a limo with a hot tub shouldn't be a problem. However, if you are expecting, make sure you consult your doctor before doing anything that could be potentially dangerous for you or your baby.

The Classic Limo

The Good Old Fashioned Limousine

Classic limousines are decorated beautifully and are a blast from the past. The classic limo company or car hire is typically used for more formal events, such as a wedding or very important occasion, as opposed to a standard birthday, night on the town, or airport rental. Because of their elegance, they make a statement that represents class, style, and tradition. Many limo companies offer a classic vehicle, and there are limo companies that specialize in classic limousines, traditional car for hire, hot rod limos and elegant formal chauffered services with past inspired limo designs. Like other limos, a classic limousine comes in a wide distribtion of colors, from white to pink to black and silver, as well as a vast variety of different brands.

Ford Excursion Limousines

Excursions are a Popular Brand Among Limousines

A Ford Excursion limousine has become one of the most popular types of limos. It is now the typical SUV limo and almost all limo rental organizations offer it. Although Excursion limos are occasionally popular for prom and weddings, they are commonly considered less elaborate as some of the other luxury car rental options. A ford excursion limo is the easiest way to find an SUV limo, because they are so common. A common occasion for a Ford Excursion limousine would be as an airport shuttle replacement. Especially if you have a big family, it can be a relaxing way to get to your destination or a luxurious finishing touch to a stressful trip. Excursion limos commonly offer a fully stocked bar, as well as several other commodities because they are so large and spacious in the interior part of the limousine as well.

The Standard Stretch Limo

This is What Most People Visualize When the Word Limo Comes To Mind

The stretch limo is officially the most popular type of limo. It tends to be popular with an older audience as opposed to the limos of choice for high school students planning homecoming and prom.With all the new types of limos, standard stretch limos are slowly faltering out of the industry, however at this time they remain the most popular limo and the most rented. Many people don't know this, but sometimes a stretch limousine can cost the same price as a regular sedan limo. So the next time you hire a car to pick you up from the airport or wherever you may be to bring you to your destination, check into stretch limo prices. You just may be able to add a little luxury without much of a price difference!

The Sedan Limousine

The Casual Route in The Luxury Car Hire Livery

The Sedan limousine is typically not much more than a luxury chauffered Sedan. It is usually the lowest priced limo for most companies limo fleets, and also the easiest. It is commonly rented for occasions such as airport travel or business trips. A Sedan limousine/car for hire is a good option if you want an alternative to a taxicab but don't want to stand out. Sometimes a casual limo is a better choice than an extravagent expensive limo, depending on the occasion. It is definitely usually the cheap limo option and may not make that much of a statement, but that can be good depending on what you are going for. Most Sedan limousines come in a shiny black color.

The Limo Bus

A Limo Big Enough to Fit Your Entire Family, Extended Family, and Friends

A limo bus is often used as not only a method of transportation, but a luxurious large area that can be used for entertaining in itself. If you have ever heard the term 'Party Bus' a limo bus is just that. Some limo buses fit over twenty people and some closer to ten. A limo bus is basically a party on wheels and is the largest type of limo you will be able to find. Sometimes it is hard to find a limo bus at a traditional limo company or through a regular limousine website... you may have to go specifically through a party bus company. Because there is so much allocation for space in a party bus, the bars and interiors can be quite extensive.

      There is an amazing selection of stretch limousines in Wales in a multitude of styles, types and colours and are hired for all occasions and events. The major towns and cities in Wales where limousines are usually hired include Cardiff, Newport, Swansea, Wrexham and Bangor. Out of these towns and cities probably Cardiff uses limousines the most and there is a great choice available.

      Well, limos have changed A LOT in the last 8 years. Town Cars turned into MKTs, Hummer vent extinct. For latest limo pics and models you can visit any up-to-date local vendor, such as https://www.elitechicagolimo.com/
