Are you considering renting a car for an entire month, several months, or even a full year ? A long-term car rental is where you rent a car for an extended period of time, usually several weeks or months. This type of car rental works well for individuals who travel for work and stay in those locations for an extended period of time, individuals who are relocating and need time to adjust before purchasing a vehicle or deciding if they need a permanent vehicle, college students, who may only need a vehicle while they’re away at school, and seasonal workers who need a vehicle while they’re working but not while they’re in their home city. Let’s take a look at all the benefits of long-term car rentals.

1. You do not need to perform any car maintenance. 

When you rent a car from a long-term car rental company, they pay for all the car’s maintenance, insurance, title and tags. This means that all you have to pay for is the car rental fees and gas. If your car does happen to have a mechanical problem, if needed the car rental company can pick that vehicle up and swap it out with another vehicle. In other cases, the car rental company will resolve the issue on site same day 

2. The rental contracts are flexible.

Rental car contracts are extremely flexible. This means that you’re not locked into the term you selected. Instead, if you need the car for longer, all you have to do is call the car rental company and tell them that you need to extend your rental. Conversely, if you need to turn the car in early, you can also contact the company and make the necessary arrangements. Short terms could mean changes to your rate. 

3. You can choose from a wide selection of vehicles.

Renting  a vehicle gives you a nearly endless amount of options at the tip of your fingertips. You can rent a car, SUV, van or premium car, – whatever type of vehicle that would fit your needs. Also, if you find that your current choice isn’t working for you, you can call the rental company and request a change in the vehicle. 

4. It can be cheaper and more convenient than buying or getting a vehicle loan.

Choosing to rent a car long-term can be cheaper than buying a new car or leasing a vehicle, especially when you consider all the upfront costs involved in purchasing or leasing a new car. It’s also a better option if you’re not in the position to commit to owning a vehicle of your own. You’re not locked into keeping the car for the duration of the loan, and you aren’t affected by vehicle depreciation.
