Most all car service providers also have large 13 passenger vans also if you happen to be traveling in a small group with rates that are normally about twice the rate of sedan service.

Detroit Airport Limousine Service – Stretch Limos are very elegant and plush offering a statement for sure. Stretch limos can carry quite a few passengers but have very limited cargo capacity per passenger so luggage sometimes can be an issue or a follow car is sometimes used just for your luggage, yes that will be an added charge to you also.
