It’s prom season, and as we all know, prom can be expensive. The more fun or special you want your prom to be, the pricier it can get.
You will want to rent a limo, and there’s nothing wrong with that. A limo can make you and your date feel special or cool, and it also allows you to spend time with your friends and not worry about driving and parking. However, a limo does cost money. There are ways, however, to afford a limo without breaking the bank. The following are a few tips to help you afford a prom limo in Baltimore County, MD:
- Split the cost: If you and your friends are all getting a ride to the big dance in a limo, they should each pay a part of the sum to get the experience. Don’t feel bad about asking them to pitch in; they’re using the limo as much as you are. If you were only planning to use the limo for you and your date and you find the price to be too much, consider inviting your friends. The cost will be much less overwhelming, and you’ll enjoy the experience much more, if you’re only paying for a share of it.
- Rent the limo for a short time: You only need the limo to get to the dance and then back home, so only use it for that purpose. The shorter you have the limo, the less expensive it will be. Plan to have the limo arrive right after you take pictures and then directly after the dance. It makes no sense to have the limo there when you’re not planning to be in it. Plan everything out with your date and your group so you only rent the limo for the time you need it.
- Spare the extras: Often times the limo service comes with in-house snacks and drinks. However, while all of that is convenient, it costs extra. Consider providing your own snacks. Pack whatever food you think you and your guests will like, and you should have no problem serving it on the limo. You can do the same for drinks, just make sure those drinks are non-alcoholic! Providing your own snacks and drinks may be better in the long run, since you know or at least can figure out what your guests want and then provide it, instead of picking from the selection in the limo.
- Work for the money to pay the bill: Sometimes you just need your parents. Perhaps this time around you need your parents to help you foot the bill for the limo. Tell them that you’re more than happy to do chores or run errands or whatever they ask of you in exchange for the money to foot the bill. It’ll be like an allowance, except all of that allowance money will go only to the limo bill.
A limo often makes a prom night more special, so don’t miss out on the experience just because you think you can’t afford it. For a prom limo service in Baltimore County, MD, visit American Sedan & Limo Service.
