Bachelor/Bachelorette Party Cost: Atlantic Limousine
One of the timeless bachelor/bachelorette party ideas is hitting up the casino to have a nice meal and do some social gambling with your best friends. Movies, such as The Hangover, often use Las Vegas as a setting but for those of us in New York City, Atlantic City is much closer and can still be a fun time.
It only takes around two hours to drive from Manhattan to Atlantic City with no traffic so on average it takes two to three hours. Trust me when I say this – it’s a lot more fun to take a limousine or party bus over than the Greyhound or Chinatown bus. And when you have a group, the cost is actually not that high for a limousine. I did some extensive research for one of my friend’s 30th birthday party a couples month ago and discovered Atlantic Limousine.
In my opinion, Atlantic Limousine has the best prices for limousines from New York City to Atlantic City. In addition, their website is very user-friendly even providing instant quotes. Most limousine operators make you call to get a quote and as a result, it’s hard to comparison shop. Atlantic Limousine, however, is so confident of their unbeatable prices, you can get a quote right away, reserve a limo, and even cancel it as long as you give a few days notice.

The Main Point
When I booked the limousine a few months back, the total rate was $400.05. I did a random search for this upcoming Friday and as you can tell from the pictures above, the total rate is $396.88, even lower than before! In general, Atlantic Limousine charges around $400 for a 10-passenger limousine from New York City to Atlantic City. I love that this rate includes tax and tip already whereas a lot of other operators don’t quote tax and tip upfront so they can tack it on later.
For 10 people, that’s just a cost of $40 a person. But after riding the limousine, I will say that it’s really meant for 9 people since the 10th person will have to sit in the front next to the driver, and that doesn’t seem fun. You can also get a 13-passenger stretch SUV for $695.17, which is also a good price. Keep in mind, these prices are for one way so you will need to find a way back to New York City, whether that’s also by limousine or by bus/train.
Last but not least, I tried using my Barclays Arrival credit card to see if Atlantic Limousine qualifies as a travel expense, in which case I can redeem some of my free 44,000 miles signup bonus and get the limousine for free! Unfortunately, I learned that Atlantic Limousine is not considered a travel expense. But if you do charge $400 on your Barclays Arrival card, you will still earn 800 miles and get a 10% rebate for a total of 880 miles, which is worth $8.80 towards future travel.
