Corporate Profile
TIP Limousine Service was founded by Tom Toomey, of Ottawa, in the summer of 1990. Through his work at numerous events around Ottawa as a professional photographer, Mr. Toomey had seen many disappointed and frustrated clients, most noticeably brides and grooms, as a result of poor service by the limousine company. Deciding that he could offer the best and most courteous service, often times in tandem with the photography, Mr. Toomey began offering the service to his clients.

TIP Limousine Service is committed to serving your needs in the best way we know how and in the way you would expect a limousine service to be run. That means clean, comfortable, well-maintained cars and courteous, neatly dressed, clean chauffeurs. Our limousine service is not a glorified taxi service.

Currently, the company remains focused on bringing the best guest service from inquiry to booking, pick-up to drop-off. With four immaculate vehicles to serve you, TIP Limousine Service really is your best way to Travel in Prestige.
