How to save money on your wedding transport

28 Sep 2016

There are several ways you can cut the cost of your wedding transport. Here, we detail how.

Weddings always require strict budgeting, no matter what your total cost. One way that you can save some cash is by getting thrifty when hiring a fancy car for your big day. There are a few ways that you can work within a budget when doing this, and we’ve decided to help you out by sharing some money saving tips.

Peak season wedding? Know what you want and book early

The BBC found that bookings in off-peak seasons can be up to 50% cheaper than peak seasons, so there really is an advantage in getting married during the winter and autumn. For those that have set a date in the spring, summer, or Christmas season, you can often get a better deal on your hire car if you decide what you want and book early, before demand inflates prices.

Hire an executive taxi instead of a wedding car service

Rather than splashing out on a specialist wedding hire, save a few pounds by going with an executive taxi service instead. Many local taxi companies, which you can find on Yell, will have several stylish contemporary vehicles that they hire out for special occasions, and their rates can be cheaper than wedding car companies.

Combine your wedding car with your honeymoon

If you are getting married abroad, you could save some money by rolling your wedding car and your honeymoon into one package. How, you ask? Simply by choosing to take a honeymoon road trip and hiring a nice car to cover both the ceremony and your travelling. Lookers have several money saving tips for driving abroad which you can follow to bring the price down further.

Ask a family or friend with a nice car to drive

This is the ultra-budget option, but you can potentially arrive for free if you know someone who owns a stylish new or classic vehicle. If you ask them nicely they might just drive you there too.

Follow some of these tips and you could shave quite a lot off your wedding costs when planning your wedding vehicle.
