Wedding Car Hire Prices

When planning your special day, every detail counts, with the choice of your wedding car being no exception. However, understanding wedding car hire prices is crucial in making an informed decision that aligns with both your dream and your budget.

At Premier Carriage, we believe in providing transparent and comprehensive information about wedding car costs, helping you navigate this aspect of your wedding planning confidently.

So, let’s explore the various wedding car options and price points, ensuring you have all the necessary details to choose a wedding car that enhances your big day and leaves you with room to manoeuvre on your wedding spreadsheet.

What Factors Influence Wedding Car Hire Costs?

Wedding car hire prices depend on all sorts of factors. This includes the type of vehicle chosen, for example, and whether you wish to hire wedding transport to take you to your ceremony venue or the reception venue too.

Explore these in more detail below.

Our hire prices are all on the car listing pages, so you won’t get any surprises. However, if you want to know exactly how much the car will cost taking into account your journeys and the time you need it for, then simply request a quote.

1. Type of Wedding Vehicle Hired

As you would expect, the choice of vehicle plays a significant role in determining the cost.

Luxury cars such as Rolls-Royces or Bentleys typically come in at a higher price than standard models. Likewise, classic and vintage cars usually cost more to hire due to their rarity and the maintenance required to keep them in pristine condition.

Bigger vehicles, such as Routemaster London Buses, also command a higher fee due to their larger passenger capacity.

2. Duration of Wedding Car Hire

Hire length is a crucial factor in wedding car prices. Most companies, including ourselves, offer a package based on a set number of hours, with additional costs accrued for hire periods over and above this set timeframe.

In fact, one of the ways to secure the cheapest wedding car hire prices is to reduce the amount of time you hire the vehicle for.

Hire length is also influenced by whether you want the car to take you to the ceremony and reception venue, for example. Or a stop for photographs. If you’re looking to reduce costs, this is one element to consider. It also affects the third factor on wedding car hire prices…

3. Distance Travelled by the Wedding Car

Like time spent with the vehicle, the distance travelled is also an important pricing factor. For reference, travel distances include the journey to the pickup location, the ceremony, and the reception venue.

Longer distances may incur higher charges due to fuel and the time commitment from the driver. This factor is most relevant if you’re after a very rare or unique vehicle based a considerable distance across the country from your wedding ceremony or reception venue.

4. Season and Day of the Week

The date of your wedding can influence the price. Due to increased demand, peak wedding seasons and weekends, especially Saturdays, often have higher rates. You might also find lower prices during off-peak times like weekdays or winter months.

This is likely to be the same for all of your wedding hire costs - from venue prices to suit hire. If you’re trying to have a more budget wedding, then choosing a week day or a winter wedding will go a long way.

5. Location-Specific Costs

Depending on your wedding location, there may be additional costs to consider. For example, in urban areas like London, charges such as congestion or Ultra Low Emission Zone fees might be applicable.
