LONG TERM CAR RENTAL OVERVIEW

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO RENT A CAR LONG TERM? ARE LONG TERM RENTALS CHEAPER?

The cost of renting a car long term is mostly dependent on the type of vehicle you are looking to hire. Older, smaller vehicles will certainly cost a lot less than vehicles that are newer, larger or are more popular models.

Car rental companies typically provide lower rates when renting vehicles over an extended period (i.e. a month or longer) vs hiring a vehicle over a weekend.

Through Snap Subscribe, you can access long term, monthly car rental which works out to be a slow as $27 per day! Check out our full range of cars available for subscription here

IS RENTING A CAR BETTER  THAN LEASING/BUYING?

Renting or leasing or buying - what's the difference, and which is better? We've put together a brief comparison of car ownership and rental/leasing options below:

Long term car rental vs buying

Renting a car over an extended period has a number of benefits over outright car ownership (i.e. buying a car), namely:

  • No deposit or major financial outlay required

  • No need to maintain registration, warrant of fitness or vehicle servicing

  • You don’t have to deal with insurance companies, this is handled for you

  • Mechanical breakdown is typically covered with long term car rental

  • Access to more modern, expensive vehicles that you otherwise might not have been able to afford

 

The major downside long term car rental when compared with buying a car is that you do not actually own the vehicle – and over the long term (2 – 5 years) this may end up being a more expensive option than buying a vehicle outright as you will not be able to sell the vehicle when you are done with it.

Long term car rental vs leasing

Long term car rental and leasing share many of the same key benefits when compared to purchasing; most of the time the lease payment will include WOF, Rego and general vehicle management, it can be more affordable upfront and if anything goes wrong with the car, you are covered.

The one major advantage of long term car rental over leasing is flexibility. With long term car rental,  that you don’t have to sign up for an extended period of time – typically long term car rental is month-to-month, whereas most leases require you to sign up to a year or more!

LONG TERM CAR RENTAL FOR BUSINESS

Long term car rental is an excellent alternative to leasing for businesses, as it offers far greater flexibility due to the monthly rental terms.
