What are the things I am paying for? Or what are the things included in my package?
Some companies may charge you for insurance and fuel. It is important to ask them if they have such a policy or not. You may want to ask for any additionally hidden cost too. Also, you should be sure of the per day charges and will you be charged per day or on an hourly basis if you keep the limo for more than the agreed period.
How Old Is My Car?

The rent value should be justified with the model of the car. This is the reason why it is important to know the model of your limo. You can also compare the price with other companies once you find the model and type of the limo.
What if the limo breaks down?
You should also ask the company about their downtime policy. What happens when the limo breakdown? Will you be responsible for the repairs? In most cases, the customer is not liable to pay for the repairs. Another important thing to ask is how will you be compensated or provided a replacement limo.
Is the company certified?
For a business traveler, it is important that you only do business with a company that is registered and certified. So, before booking a limo service, ask them about the certification and experience they have in the field.
