Should I Be Hiring a Regular or A Stretch Limousine?


If you’ve had the good fortune of taking a ride in a limo, you would know better that this specific transportation mode is undoubtedly the swankiest and the plushest amongst all means of conveyance. As far as this particular means of transport is concerned, there are two basic types, the regular luxury vehicle, and the stretch limo. SGMAXI, a frontline limousine service rental company in Singapore maintains only a fleet of regular limousines but ask anyway, who knows in the future?

Limos come in perfectly handy when you need to impart a dash of glamor to any formal or informal event including but not limited to corporate conferences, client meets, wedding receptions, proms, airport transfers, and anniversary events. What differentiates a regular limousine from a stretch limo? For a start, the distinction or difference is borne out by the terminologies. A ‘stretch’ limousine as the name implies is a luxury vehicle that has been stretched out or extended in order to accommodate more people.

On the other hand, a standard limousine is actually a sedan, SUV, MUV like our Toyota Alphard Rental or a hybrid that is driven by a chauffeur and is outfitted with top-of-the-line facilities like a TV, bulletproof windows, and so on. So, in essence, all stretch limos are limousines but not all limos are stretch limousines. Whether you will hire a regular limousine or the stretch variety will more or less depend on the following factors.

The Event

Whether you’ll go for a stretch Rolls Royce limousine or a standard saloon will obviously depend on the nature or type of the event. A wedding or a birthday is an extravagant affair where you invite your intimate friends and relatives. Naturally, if you want to pickup and drop your guests for such a grand occasion and let them travel comfortably, you’ll need a stretch limo. But if you wish to impress a steadfast client of yours by sending a luxury vehicle to pick him or her up from the airport, a standard limo will suffice.

The number of invited guests or passengers

A stretch limo is specially designed increase its seating capacity. Also, it comes equipped with exclusive add-ons or amenities that are missing in a regular limo owing to constraints of space. If you have invited 8 special guests and want them to travel in style and comfort, then renting a stretch limo is indispensable.

Your willingness to splurge

Ultimately, it all boils down to your willingness to splurge which again depend on your financial capacity. After all, there’s no distinct dividing line between renting a stretch and a regular limo, you can always choose the latter if you wish to celebrate your 25th or 50th marriage anniversary in a manner or fashion that you will remember for the rest of your life. Even if you are willing to pay more there are things you will need to take note off in order not to end up with a steep bill! Of course, you are not limited to just luxurious limousines, you can also opt for our 7-seater maxicabs with the same level of premium service that we maintain throughout our different services.

Understandably enough you would opt for the stretch limo for once-in-a-lifetime or extra-special occasions like weddings, bachelor/bachelorette parties, prom events, jubilee receptions, and so on. Alternatively, a regular limo is usually hired for official or formal events or occasions like airport pickup and drops, business trip in a foreign country, and so on. A stretch limo is generally custom-built for special occasions and for chauffeuring presidents, prime ministers, visiting dignitaries, and for other categories of VIPs.
