Fully Booked

Essex based Limousine hire company, 1stEvent Limousines is reporting a huge surge in bookings this year. With the companies hire bookings up by 36% on last year, the company is seeing the sort of figures not seen since 2006.

Said CEO Mark Farrell " We have seen a huge leap in our hire of stretch Chrysler 300 & Dodge Charger limousines and the Grand Illusion party Buses are just taking over the 16 passenger market. Its great to see that people are more confident to spend money and get out and enjoy themselves. Its not just the prom season that has boosted hire demand, we are taking clients to restaurants, concerts, theatre, nightclubs, its great to see".

Councils Looking at Limousines More Objectively?

Just recently, we have started giving formal presentations to council officers about stretch limos - what they are, how they are built, VOSA's requirements etc.

One such presentation was given to spelthorne Council and invited licensing officers from other councils (12 in all) on 13th April. The presentation was followed by a very open Q and A forum and 'both sides' were very open and frank - from the good, and the bad and ofcourse, the ugly.

Today, we recieved the following email from the senior licensing officer of Runnymede Borough Council, who until now, have not licensed limousines:


Just a short note to let you know that Members of the Regulatory Committee agreed, last night, to relax the restriction & requirement of 3 point lap & diagonal passenger seat belts for side or rear facing seats.

The iten put before the Committee was aimed at removing the one condition the inhibited the licensing of 'stretched limos' in Runnymeade.

There seems to be no good reason why any operator based within the Borough cannot now become licensed with us and operate within the law.

Please feel free to contact us should you wish any further information.


This is good news and goes to show what can be achieved if a sensitive and accurate appraoch is adopted and put before the authorities, who of course, have the deciding vote.

We also heard today that both Bolton and Walsall Councils have agreed to license limousines of up to eight passengers.
