With limousines used primarily for proms and weddings, many Americans have never enjoyed a limo ride that wasn't accompanied by vague feelings of regret and foreboding. Today's Groupon lets you enjoy the ride in the high style of a president or a corporate supervillain in a movie. For $35, you get an hour in your choice of luxury ride from La Fleur Limousine, an up to $100 value. The company is waiving its minimum time requirement for Groupon customers, but you have the option of adding additional hours at the normal rate until the fourth hour, which is half off for Groupon customers. Airport service and limo bus rental are not included.
Like its fleet of vehicles, La Fleur is brand-new, so expect your chauffeur to have that new chauffeur smell. Beyond the standard stretch Lincoln Town Car, office workers can opt to get whisked off to lunch in a more low-key Town Car or use the Suburban to pick up groceries in high style. And if you pull up in an Escalade, you'll be ushered right past the bouncer and velvet rope of DC's most bangin' bingo parlors.
Chauffeured transportation from Le Fleur can be used to impress potential clients, provide a much-needed confidence boost before a job interview, and safely usher drinking buddies home, as well as offer a stylish way to wine and dine first dates. Even if you have no place to be, you can always just cruise through the DC area on your own private tour while swirling a snifter of whiskey and musing darkly to imaginary lackeys how everyone in this town has a price—or a vice. Call ahead to arrange your pick-up.
