It used to be that people rented a car when they went away on holiday and they needed to get around. But now, people rent cars for all kinds of reasons. Someone does not need to be on holiday or a business to trip to rent a car. Some people get one for a special occasion. Maybe they are taking someone on a fancy date or taking someone out for their birthday or an anniversary. Luxury cars can be rented although they usually cost more than renting a standard size vehicle.
For business owners, renting a car can be a nice touch when taking an important client out to dinner or picking up someone from the airport. It shows that you are going the extra mile to help the client feel comfortable and to show that your business is professional and classy.
If you are taking a road trip out of town but you don't want to drive your petrol guzzling vehicle such as a truck or SUV, you may want to rent a compact car to save a few bucks. Petrol can really add up when you are driving a car that does not get very good petrol mileage. Especially if you are going on a long road trip. You can save a lot of money by renting something with a smaller, more efficient engine. Maybe you own a car that is not very reliable or has been in and out of the shop many times. You wouldn't want that car to break down while you are on a road trip or taking the family on a holiday away. Being stranded in an unfamiliar place can be a very frustrating and stressful experience. Not to mention it will put a big wrench in your plans for the family holiday you all have been so excited for. Instead, renting a car will give you peace of mind that you will safely arrive at your destination. Plus, depending on what type of car you rent, you may have more room and it may be a more comfortable ride. People also rent cars to save on the wear and tear that traveling long distances puts on their own personal cars.
If you need to move some furniture but don't own a truck, you may need to rent one. It may actually be cheaper than hiring a delivery company to help move your furniture. Especially if you can get the job done in one afternoon. There are some rental companies that can charge by the hour or let you rent the car for a half day.
Most cities have several car rental companies with competitive prices. You can do a search online to compare rates and book a car right over the internet. Some companies will actually come to your location and pick you up. This works out well if your car is in the shop and you have no way to get to the rental office.
Even though there are many reasons to rent a car these days, you really don't need a good reason. You can rent a car just for fun and hit the road with friends or family. It's always fun to drive something different.
