5 Reasons to Choose a Limousine Over a Taxi

5 Reasons To Choose A Limousine Over A Taxi. 

When it comes to transportation these days, there are so many different options to choose from. Should you drive yourself? Should you get a cab? How about an Uber? Or should you book yourself a limo? The options are endless and each one has its own pros and cons. But if we had to choose one option where the pros definitely outweigh the cons, we would say…you guessed it – limousines.

Now, I know what you’re thinking – isn’t this the most expensive option?! Well, you’d be surprised to know that not necessarily. Bare with us and you’re about to find out why.


Even though taxi is a great way to get around, it might cost more than you thought at first!

Taxi might be pricier than you thought at first.

1. Pricing

Most people assume that taking a taxi is always cheaper than taking a limo. Surprisingly, that is not always the case. Here’s how it works:

When you get a cab, you get a metered trip. You usually don’t know how much your trip will cost from the beginning. So, if you get stuck in traffic, your trip will cost even more! Not to mention, the constant glancing at the meter, seeing it go higher and higher with every minute…you know it’s annoying!

With limousines, the system is different. You get your price for the trip before it even starts. Your driver is more focused on your needs, rather than how long it will take you to get to your destination. Basically, it’s like you’re paying for a dedicated time instead of the ride itself. No metered trips, no extra charges, no surprises.


2. Reservation

Instead of having to hail a taxi from the curb or sit around and wait until your taxi driver drops off his current passengers and arrives, with a limo it’s quite the opposite. You won’t be waiting for your driver, your driver will be waiting for you.

When you make a limousine reservation, you get a vehicle set aside for you. It’s prepped and ready, waiting for you to ride in it. No need to worry about your travels being delayed or some kind of inconveniences – a limousine reservation is one you can depend on.


Limousines can really make you forget about all the trouble.

A smile on your face is more likely in a limousine than in a taxi!

3. Luxury

This is quite an obvious reason why you should choose a limousine over a taxi, but don’t we all just love luxury?

Taxis are basic. You usually get a simple car, nothing out of the ordinary. It may be clean, maybe not so much. Basically, you just never know what you will get.

But a limousine, on the other hand… Think leather seats, luxury interior, audio systems, flat screens, a perfectly clean car, a personal chauffeur – you name it. This is especially great if you need to make a good impression, such as at a meeting with clients or an interview.


4. Service

I’m sure most of us have dealt with that annoying and rude taxi driver. Or at least the obnoxious music he plays. Sometimes even a not-so-nice smell. You’d assume that when you are paying someone for a service, you should get good service – but that doesn’t always happen with taxis (don’t get us wrong, we’re not saying all taxi services are like this).

With a limousine, you can always count on a luxury, first-class service. Your professional chauffeur will treat you with respect and courtesy. He will take you to your destination safely and on-time. No sudden darting in and out of traffic, just a smooth and safe ride.

To put it shortly, when it comes to service – taxis focus on getting as many rides in as possible (which is why they’re usually in a hurry), while limousine services focus on providing their clients with the best service ever.


By far the best reason why limousines are worth every penny - it lets you sit back, relax & enjoy the ride!

Do you know the feeling of just getting comfy and not worrying about anything at all? That’s what limousines are for – to make sure you can do that!

5. Convenience

Convenience is especially important when travelling to and from the airport. With limousines, you can definitely expect your convenience to be on-point.

After a long flight, that last thing that you want is to walk around with your luggage and try to catch a cab. We know that all you want is to get home safe and sound. And that’s exactly what you would get with a limousine service!

In fact, not only will your limousine arrive on-time, but you will also be picked-up/dropped off at the right terminal. No need to walk around with your luggage from one terminal to another.

Not to mention, here at Naperville Limousine, we use flight tracking for airport pick-ups. This means, that if your flight is running late or a bit early – we are aware of that and will be waiting for you at your terminal as soon as you land. No wait, no hassle, a completely stress-free experience.
