Coaches and Limo Coaches – What’s the Difference?

Posted on June 29, 2018 by Chad

The difference between coaches and limo coaches at Renee’s Limousines in Minneapolis is simple and subtle but can make all the difference in the world to some customers. This is why we strive to maintain quality and diversity within our fleet of custom limousines, coaches and trolleys in the Twin Cities. In this post, we will discuss the nuanced differences between a coach and limo coach.

What is a Coach? 

Coaches are like large luxurious buses that feature a number of great amenities and are ideal for groups of passengers. These passengers can plan entertainment events of all sorts using these custom dream machines. They are built with the shuttle of passengers in mind so there are options for on board entertainment, comfortable seating and more. They have been used for event transportation, wedding shuttles, airport transportation, tours, visitor guides and more. They can seat up to 56 passengers. There are also mini coach buses that seat more than 30 passengers. Learn more by visiting our website and clicking on or hovering over “our fleet”.

What is a Limo Coach?

The same ideas apply here. We have Mercedes Benz limo coaches available. These are like buses but smaller and emphasize the luxury and features of the vehicle more intimately with the passengers on board. These can be used for the same purposes as the large buses but they have a wider range of applications because they are easier to maneuver around cities, structural elements and so forth around the Twin Cities. Visit the fleet link at our website to learn more about limo coaches. The Mercedes models seat up to 12, but we have other models that seat up to 24 people as well.

How to Book a Coach or Limo Coach

If you need help booking a coach bus or limo coach for your group travel, party or other purpose, consult with Renee’s Limousines in Minneapolis. We can help you with a variety of questions you might have about any packages we offer or about a custom transportation plan. Thanks for reading our blog!

Posted on November 11, 2016 by Chad

TWIN CITIES—Limousines are a great way to travel around the cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul and they are also great for get-togethers and parties.

Many people like to go out on a night on the town for their birthday and getting a limousine is a great way to do just that without having to worry about getting a designated driver or getting a taxi cab to pick up you and your friends. DUIs (driving under the influence citations) are no laughing matter and Minnesota police, state troopers and other law enforcement do not play games. So if you want a great way to get around comfortably, safely and in style, book a limo from our fleet.

Not only do we offer a mode of transportation that is safe and reliable but our customer service is top notch. We offer great onboard entertainment and other options within our great luxury limos, which include modern luxury passenger stretch limos and SUV styles as well. Talk to our staff about a particular type of limo and a custom route for your birthday party.

We can consult with you on putting together a package that works for your travel and partying plans. Be sure to call in advance though, because booking availability is often limited at certain times of the year, particularly during the busy wedding season during the warm months. During these cold winter months, there are also holiday bookings so availability might be a little tight. Call us to see if we have a limo available for you or your loved one’s birthday party. We would love to help you get started on your party planning early!
