    I am going with a party of 4 next month. Looking into a stretch limo from the airport.

    2 of us are at Bally's and 2 at Caesars... I sent a mail to Presidential, asking for confirmation 2 drops were ok, and got a vague reply, kind of 'should be ok, depends on the driver and time'... no grammar, not good.

    I'm doing this to keep things easy and fun, and that reply has put me off using Presidential.

    So - asking for recs from the experts here instead!

    Pick up will be from one hotel only at the end of the stay.

    Much appreciated!

    Used Presidential last week and was told that could have up to an hour. Some like to go liquor store while others like to stop off at the sign. Pretty sure it shouldn't be a problem.

    Customer service with Presidential is really hit or miss, I've had good and horrible when trying to contact them.

    The answer you got is kind of right.

    You are basically hiring the driver and the car for an hour. Unless the driver's an idiot, he'll make as many stops as you want, he wants a tip.

    The only issue you really have is time. If you book in advance, the clock starts when your plane lands. If you do a walk-up, it starts when you get in.

    You probably have enough time to do a drop at Bally's then onto Caesars either way. I'm not sure where the drop for Bally's is; if it's on E Flamingo Ave like I think it is, you can probably shave a few minutes off the trip by dropping at Caesars first, just ask the driver if he thinks it's necessary.

    Any limo I've had gives you either 60 or 90 minutes for the base rate.

    You should be fine.

    Thanks all, understanding the 'hire for an hour' angle makes the comment from customer service make a lot more sense. I consider myself reassured.

    Appreciated!

    I was going to write almost exactly what Kevin just wrote.
    Lay back, relax, and enjoy.

    You should be fine. We did this once (Bally's and MC) with a Presidential limo, though this was one of their best, long-time drivers. We did have one time, several years ago where the driver (not the same guy) was grumpy about making a stop on the way. Earlier this year, we decided to finally stop at the sign. It was during some huge convention and the driver was worried about taking that long because they were short on drivers and his schedule was jam-packed but he was willing to do it. We decided to skip it so he could keep up and make a living.
