Music City is the perfect destination for a great bachelorette party. Nashville’s endless supply of bars, restaurants and entertainment make it a one-stop-shop. If you’re planning an upcoming Nashville bachelorette party, you’re probably thinking about where you’ll stay, where you’ll go and what you’ll do.
But how will you get there?
Getting Around Nashville
Traveling to Nashville is the easy part. However, getting your bachelorette party around the city may be a bit of a logistical nightmare. Finding affordable, convenient parking, designating a sober driver and maneuvering Nashville’s notoriously frustrating traffic will add unwanted stress to your festivities.
Enlisting the service of a limousine company will alleviate those pressures and ensure that your bachelorette party is as memorable as the bride-to-be deserves.
Safety and Security
Getting around Nashville is difficult, even for locals. Oftentimes, the assumed “convenience” of cabs and ride-sharing apps outweighs the numerous pitfalls in service and dependability those options present.
Safety should be your top priority. With cabs and ride-shares, you put your safety at risk.
Consider this: Uber and Lyft do not fingerprint their drivers and they outsource their background checks to third parties. They also rarely meet their drivers in-person before allowing them to begin driving passengers. In fact, in April of 2016, Uber had to pay a whopping $10 million to settle a lawsuit over misleading customers over the extent of their driver background checks.
The best way to guarantee your party’s safety is by booking a vehicle through a legitimate transportation company. That way, you know that your driver has been background checked, fingerprinted, drug tested and thoroughly vetted.
Paying more multiple rideshare app trips over the course of an evening may seem like the most convenient way to get around Nashville. But those seemingly minor costs add up quickly, especially if you’re traveling during peak time periods and have to deal with pesky surge pricing.
Cost fluctuates regularly with rideshare apps, as cost is based entirely on a questionable “demand structure.”
In fact, Uber’s pricing structure was brought forth in another lawsuit lobbed against Uber CEO Travis Kalanick in March 2016. The lawsuit claims Kalanick schemed to drive up prices.
By arranging transportation with a reputable, trustworthy car service, pricing will have already been established and worked into your budget. A car service offers the most transparent pricing. You won’t have to worry about getting slammed with unexpected fees.
Quality of Experience
Scheduling transportation with a car service will allow the entire group to travel together, rather than having to split into several groups to get from destination to destination.
While Uber and Lyft offer options for larger vehicles, they can only seat up to six passengers. If a bachelorette party is larger than six members – which is often the case – you’re forced to separate. A professional car service has vehicles large enough to accommodate larger groups, ensuring that your group will always stay together.
Car service also ensures that there is a safe and secure place to store belongings and purchases throughout the evening.
Nothing compares to the luxury and style of being transported around town by a personal driver. Car service companies have a number of options in terms of size and additional options that rideshares simply can not offer, such as fiber optics, full bars and Wi-Fi.
Car service companies also employ local chauffeurs who can offer their advice an expertise on Nashville’s fastest routes, best restaurants and hidden gems.
