Limousine vehicles come in many formats, including the popular stretch limo which is basically a standard vehicle that has been professionally lengthened and fitted out with a range of luxury appointments. Fit out inside a stretch could include leather and woodgrain trim, bar, ice chest or fridge, LCD screens with DVD, Audio systems, PlayStations and even some with karaoke! Seating capacity depends on the vehicle and can range from 6 seats to 17 or more seats for the super stretch or limo bus style vehicles.
Sedan limousines, often referred to as a Corporate Car / Hire Car / Town Car, is a luxury vehicle with a seating capacity of 5 people including the chauffeur. Sedan limos are popular for airport transfers, corporate work and general transfers. A lot of people use sedan limos for their reliability (being picked up on time) and the overall quality of the vehicle. In a lot of cases the cost is very comparable to other modes of transport.
Limousine and Chauffeur Driven service companies sometimes specialise in one form of vehicle whether it be stretch or sedan and provide services especially for that market. Some companies will provide a range of vehicle options which may include stretch, sedan, people movers like a Tarago or Voyager, mini buses and coaches.

Some companies offer pre-determined itineraries for tours whether it be for winery tours, sightseeing tours, nightclub tours etc.
Rates are generally either charged by the hour or a set rate for the journey you are travelling. Some companies, in fact most, charge waiting time so if you leave the limo waiting it’s much like a taxi in that the meters running so to speak. Check with the operator as to how this applies.
