When people think of luxury, they think of money. When people think of affordable, they think of misery or content. What do you personally think of when someone says something is affordable? You think something is either obviously broken, stolen or doesn’t work nearly as well at it should. When it comes to the limousine business, it can be no different. Luxury limousines cost a lot of money and if you want sit in a luxury car, you have to pay the luxury price tag. I guess you could go to a dealership and just take one around for a test drive but that would get super expensive after a while.
Limousine is English but did you know the French have their own phrase and definition of what a Limousine is as well? They call it the Limousin (without the E) and what this refers to is simply an elongated and magnificent mode of transportation that could consist of everything that comes with eight wheel automobiles.
Now, if you want to enjoy these luxuries, why should you have to pay a luxury price? What if there was a way you could get into something luxurious without paying the luxurious price tag and you could get something affordable but at the same time, still luxurious. Well the good news is, there’s definitely ways around the price tags. First, is what we have the beggar’s trick. This usually works when the company thinks you have a wedding or a prom night.
You see, during a wedding or a prom night, the limousine companies know that they’re in rough competition with one another and that they’re going to be fighting each other for their business. It’s just like all those taxi cabs from different companies that sit outside of a popular destination when they know a large influx of people are about to arrive. They definitely do not like each other because they’re all in competition with each other. They’re going to provide deals and the best drivers they possibly can be to land those clients. They need that money and that’s exactly how limousine companies are as well.
So when you’re hiring a high priced limousine company, make sure you let them know that it’s an important day for you and there’s a huge event. You’re going to need something luxurious to show up in but you just don’t have the budget for what they’re asking for. I have to let you in on a secret. Those price tags you see on their services are high for a reason. Companies like that are used to caving for hagglers. This is why they’re high and they know what you’re doing. You’re not the first person to do this.
However, it still works to this day. If they think they’re transporting you to a wedding or some kind of special event, they’re going to give you a discount, especially if you mention that you’re just going to shop around for competitors in the area.
