Limousine & Party Bus Tips for Prom Parents and Teens

It’s almost prom season, and you know what that means. Party buses and limousines are about to become the hottest vehicles on the street. With all the excitement, though, also comes worry for a lot of parents, which is why Dream Limousine is here with some helpful tips for prom parents and teens to make the adventure enjoyable for everyone!

Create An Itinerary

One of the most important things you and your teen can do together before booking transportation for prom night is sit down and come up with a detailed itinerary for the night. Between late-night snack runs and afterparties, there’s a good chance your teen will not want to go straight from home to prom and back. This is one of their last nights to be free with their high school friends, and you definitely don’t want any sneaking around, so sit down and come up with a detailed itinerary that works for both of you. Doing so means you can rest easy knowing your teen and their friends have safe, reliable transportation to and from all their intended destinations. And they can enjoy their night and impress their peers with a luxury vehicle of their choosing.

Book Your Transportation Early

Once you have your plan for the night, including a list of guests, destinations, and approximate times spent at each place, you need to book your transportation as early as possible. The earlier you do, the more limousines and party buses you’ll have to choose from, and the more freedom you’ll have to personalize your teen’s schedule for the evening. The last thing you want to do is wait until days or even weeks before prom to book your limo or party bus when there are barely any options left and you have no time for photos, cruising around in your party bus, and otherwise enjoying the once-in-a-lifetime experience that is prom night!

Communication & Contact Information

Prom night might be the most fun night of the year, but like any other wild party, you have to be on the same page with your teen regarding safety as well. Even just communicating your concerns with them before the big night, exchanging contact information with everyone, getting to know the chaperones, keeping phones charged, and making sure you meet your teen’s driver and give them contact information for all the parents can go a long way giving everyone peace of mind.

Take Your Comfort Seriously

Whether you’re a teen comparing the amenities in a limousine to those in a party bus, or a parent worried about the safety of your child, take your comfort seriously. Prom night only happens once in life. It’s a special event that no parental anxiety or lackluster “luxury” transportation should ever spoil. Make sure prom night is one of the best nights of yours or your child’s life by never settling for less than what you know in your heart you deserve. If you’re not absolutely thrilled with your choice, don’t be afraid to keep looking!

Choose An Insured and Reputable Transportation Company

Over the last few years, more than 60% of limo, party bus, and charter bus companies in Michigan have gone out of business, and many left are no longer even operating in accordance with the Michigan Department of Transportation. This, of course, is dangerous for many reasons. You certainly don’t want to risk paying a deposit with a company that doesn’t exist by the time prom night rolls around. And you should never book a limo or party bus through a company that is not legally authorized to operate in the state of Michigan for any occasion. You can easily view a current list of authorized bus carriers online at any time.
