One of the best ways to see Toronto and to enjoy all of the city’s attractions is to rent a limo. It’s true that many people associate renting a limo with exorbitant costs, but there are quite a few factors to consider when choosing between renting a car and renting a limo. First of all, a limo doesn’t necessarily mean a stretch limo that can accommodate a dozen people and come equipped with all the bells and whistles, such as a wet bar and a television. That type of limo is an option, of course, but a limo can also be a large SUV or an oversized town car.
Arriving in Style
For people who arrive in Toronto by air, the convenience of a limo wins hands down. If your flight is late, or arrives long after the car rental agency has closed, you will have to deal with making alternative plans, which is the last thing you’ll feel like doing after a delayed or late night arrival flight. If you arrange for a limo to pick you up at the airport, it won’t matter what time your flight arrives, a driver will be there to meet you, help with your luggage, and take you directly to your hotel while you relax in the back of the car.
Getting Around the City
Toronto is the biggest city in Canada and covers 243 square miles. The city’s diverse ethnicity includes five Chinatowns, a Greek community, and other ethnic neighborhoods and shopping districts. Like any large city, you may find it stressful trying to negotiate traffic while you locate the tourist attractions you want to see and trying to find a place to park. But if you hire a limo to take you around the city, you will enjoy door to door service and be able to see much more of the city without the hassle of driving a rental car—no need to worry about traffic, parking, road construction, or detours. A knowledgeable, professional driver can squire you and your family from one destination to another while everyone sits back and takes in the view.
Fun for the Whole Family
Renting a limo makes it easy to accommodate the entire family, too. Perhaps some family members want to spend the afternoon strolling through the St. Lawrence Market, but others would prefer to spend the afternoon at the Toronto Zoo just north of the city: the limo driver can drop off and pick up at both locations. This is a great advantage over using a rental car especially if time is limited. And if you want to spend a day at Canada’s Wonderland, the largest theme park in the country, you’ll love having a limo pick you up at the end of a tiring day and whisk you back to your hotel.
Renting a limo is a wonderful and stress-free way to enjoy Toronto, especially when you consider the hassle of picking up and dropping off a rental car, and trying to navigate your way through an unfamiliar city.
