Limo Hire for Halloween 2019

Though Halloween is all about amazing fancy dress costumes and scaring your friends and family half to death for many, for most, it is an excuse to go out and party.

Here at Limo Broker, we simply LOVE Halloween, being one of the busiest nights of the year for our operators. This is because many large groups heading out on the tiles require transport. And, what better way to get from A to B on that frightful night that in a stretched limo?

Why hire a limo?

Where you may be tempted to hire a Rolls Royce or even a sports car to get the party started, the benefits to opting for a limo are endless! Below are just a few:

  • Limousines are spacious
  • The majority of limos come with music systems, making for a lively, fun trip to the club
  • Free-WiFi in limos means you can share your limo hire experience live with virtual friends
  • Most limos seat 8+ people meaning large groups can travel as one!
  • Limos come in all sorts of shapes and sizes
  • Hiring one limo over multiple taxis can prove the cheapest option

Millionaire to Bury His Bentley to ‘Drive Around Afterlife in Style’

Though the subject of death is rather depressing and bleak, it is nonetheless a subject we find ourselves talking about all the time.

What we will he buried with seems to crop up a lot, with most of us requesting to be buried with our worldly possessions.

However, for one Brazilian millionaire, it is his Bentley.

Thane Chiquinho Scarpa very nearly broke the internet when he revealed he was hosting a burial for his beloved bar, claiming he wanted to ‘drive around the afterlife in style’. Seeing many brand him a show off and incredibly excessive, there was actually a pretty incredible twist to this story.

Receiving lots of media attention, we were all talking about this mad man from Brazil that was putting millions of pounds worth of fine motoring under the ground.

At the ‘burial’, just before the car was lowered into the ground, the businessman revealed that he wasn’t going through with the burial, but was in fact making a social comment about organ donation.

“People condemn me because I wanted to bury a million dollar Bentley, in fact most people bury something a lot more valuable than my car,” Scarpa said at the ceremony.

“They bury hearts, livers, lungs, eyes, kidneys. This is absurd. So many people waiting for a transplant and you will bury your healthy organs that will save so many lives.”

What a way to kickstart Brazil’s National Organ Donation week!

Here at Limo Broker, we think this is incredibly clever! What do you think? Has it made you think about organ donation a little more?

Rolls Royce Won’t be Going Electric Any Time Soon

Every week we hear news of a different car manufacturers launching an electric car product. From VW and Audi to Land Rover and Suzuki, they are all at it!

However, it appears that Rolls Royce, the brand renowned for its fuel-guzzling chauffeur cars, are no following the herd.

According to the British carmakers, they are in no rush to launch eco version of their monster cars, with the Phantom, Ghost and Cullinan all staying as they are for now.

This does however slightly contradict the firm’s previous comments about rolling out electric variations of their fleet.

Leaping at their own defence, Rolls Royce simply believes that the technology just isn’t right yet, not wanting to rush the process, get it wrong and harm their impeccable brand reputation they have built over decades.

Rolls Royce CEO, Mr. Torsten Otvos-Muller, confirmed: “We are on it. We need to make smart decisions on where we invest our money. It may be OK for bigger companies to go into hybrids and all sorts of different technologies, [but] we needed to make a certain decision.”

Let us know what you think. Should all cars be modified to be electric or are vehicles such as the Rolls Royce Phantom allowed to retain their traditional values?

As you know, at Limo Broker, we are avid lovers of the Rolls Royce brand, keen to share the amazing Rolls Royce hire packages accessible through our site. Having partnered with the best operators in the business, we can help you find the best Phantom, Ghost, Cullinan and Silver Cloud hire deals.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon Criticised for £1.3m Worth of Limo Trips

Stretched limousines are commonly utilised by political figures. From Donald Trump and Barack Obama to Kim Jong Un and Theresa May; most leaders opt for long wheelbase limos to get from A to B.

This week, First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, has been criticised for her use of limousines, with her top team said to have spent a huge £1.3m on limo trips.

Reports show that the team enjoyed over 10,755 car journeys last year alone, raking up one rather large bill that the taxpayer inevitably settled.

The cars are part of a 24-strong fleet reserved for office officials, taking them to and from appointments.

But, it is not just the cost that has resulted in a backlash, it is the environmental impact of these trips.

Tory MSP Miles Briggs said:

“The blatant hypocrisy of the SNP is simply jaw-dropping.

“In the same year the First Minister declared a climate emergency, they’ve increased their car usage.

“It’s one rule for the SNP government and another for ordinary Scots.”

However, a Government spokesperson kept to their defence, saying:

“We look for ways to minimise vehicle use for official journeys for example, by car-sharing.

“Ministers can also use public transport or walk to their engagements.

“This isn’t always practical if they need to carry out sensitive government business during a journey.”

Affordable limo hire

Here at Limo Broker, we can’t help but agree that the £1.3m limo hire fee is a bit steep.

Audi to Collaborate with BMW for Autonomous Project

In the modern world of business, we are seeing a great deal of collaboration, with many big brands joining forces with similar businesses and even competitors for different ventures and projects.

Just this week it was suggested that direct rivals, Audi and BMW, will be working together on an autonomous car project, an announcement that came as shock to most of us. 

Referred to as the ‘autonomous vehicle project’, the firms will pool their resources in a plea to take driverless technology up a gear. According to sources, the project will focus on creating driving functions to allow ‘Level Three’ autonomous driving on motorways. They are reportedly working on autonomous parking technology also.

Putting the industry one step closer to rolling out fully autonomous cars, the brand promises to launch the next phase of self-driving tech by 2024.

But, this is not the only project that has seen car rivals come together. Audi and BMW have also announced a $1 billion electric mobility partnership, aligning themselves with one another for many years to come.

But, why the sudden interest in collaboration? 

Well, with such great overheads associated with developing new technologies and so much risk involved, partnering with like-minded brands with the same goal reduces costs and allows companies to bring new products and services to market quickly. This is the thinking behind the BMW/Audi setup. 

Audi and BMW car hire deals

Here at Limo Broker, we are huge fans of both German car brands, hence why we are keen to promote our BMW and Audi car hire deals. Available for all sorts of events and occasions, you can hire vehicles for birthdays, anniversaries, airport transfers, weddings, city tours and much more. What’s more is that our Audis and BMWs can be hired for self-drive purposes or with a professional chauffeur driver in toe.
