school-promWe were overjoyed to speak with The Guardian this week about the modern day prom party, an event that has changed dramatically over time.

Having been in the prom industry for over a decade it is a well-known fact that Limo Broker is extremely knowledgeable on the subject.

Over the past few years it has become apparent that prom celebrations are becoming more and more extravagant. From oversized dresses and bejewelled shoes to hiring hair and make-up specialists, prom and leavers balls are far from understated.

Honing in on this fascinating subject that is prom parties The Guardian spoke of the progression this key event has experienced, seeing the boring school hall disco as extremely out-dated.

‘The humble school disco is almost a thing of the past, with an estimated 85% of UK secondary schools now holding a prom during June or July, the majority for 15- and 16-year-olds after their GCSEs. Estimates vary, but some reckon that British parents are now lavishing £30m a year on the parties.’ Explained Jill Papworth of The Guardian.

We at Limo Broker can confirm that both students and parents alike illustrate a hunger to go all out at prom, hiring the most expensive and spectacular items to ensure they are the key signifier.

This attention can only really be achieved thorough impressive transport. Our Sales Manager, Gareth Brookman, illustrated to the newspaper just how imperative exciting prom car hire has become.

‘In 2014 we’ve seen a huge increase in bookings for parents hiring Lamborghinis and Ferraris to drive their children to prom, spending over £1,000 for this,” explained Gareth.

This need for more innovative car hire choices has encouraged us to widen our fleet, ensuring that we have more super car hire options available throughout the summer months. Working closely with our sister company, Regency, we now boast an impressive fleet of elite sports cars.

Where the Lincoln Towncar is still a popular choice for prom travel 16 and 17 year olds are desperate to experience the exhilaration that cars like Lamborghini’s and Ferrari’s have to offer.

In addition to super cars presidential vehicles are also in great demand. From Bentley’s and Jaguars to Rolls Royce’s and Range Rover’s, prom Kings and Queens employ an admirable taste when it comes to prom transport.
