Is Vegas too hot for limos to handle? NO WAY! Well….we must admit that 118°+ weather in June and July is not ideal for these bad boys and will make it a bit tougher for those awesome cars to operate.
Imagine visiting Las Vegas in your very own limo for extra comfort and enjoyment just to have the whole experience ruined by extreme desert heat. While you may have a hard time imagining such a scenario – limousines are, after all, the most luxurious vehicles built by man – many tourists do find themselves in such a distressing scenario.
You see, Las Vegas was built from scratch in the middle of the Mojave Desert, one of the driest deserts in North America. This means that, while the city founders and generations after them did a spectacular job at positioning Las Vegas on the world tourism map, summers can be unbearable in the city and to put it bluntly, there’s nothing anyone can do about it.
While limousines may be the best and most luxurious cars in the world, they are still just cars and limos in Vegas are a completely different story. As thousands upon thousands of tourists hire limos to drive them from the airport to the hotel and vice versa, these cars need to withstand some serious pressure on their engines, with all the stops and goes, not to mention standing idle in the heat. When you take into account the fact that lots of limo companies in Vegas rent out their cars 24/7/365, it’s pretty obvious that the seemingly unlikely scenario of getting stuck in the middle of nowhere in an over-heated limo isn’t that impossible.
Another important factor to consider is that older models tend to overheat or experience problems with air conditioning more frequently than newer models. The problem is that, in this line of business, a limo can be considered old after just a handful of years. What’s even more concerning is that not all limo companies in Vegas are prepared to deal with the extreme conditions of the city on their fleet.
On the other hand, there are companies that do maintain their vehicles in top shape and take every possible precautionary measure to make sure their limos are fully operational in the desert heat. To have a blast in your Vegas limo, we recommend talking with limo companies about the age and condition of their cars before booking a tour.
