If you need to rent a car for more than 28 days give or take, you can usually save tremendously on your payments by going for a long term car rental deal. There are companies that rent out their cars for a minimum of 7 days. This makes sure that the client is already getting the car at a discount off the daily rate.
However there are some rental companies where you can save more by renting for 27 to 28 days rather than for a 30 day period. You need to check out the pricing schemes for long term car rentals and compare them with what you would be paying for the equivalent number of daily rentals to see if you should get the long term car rental from that car rental company. Or choice another car rental company to look at.
Otherwise, there are more car rental companies that offer savings on the monthly plan rather than on the daily plan. On the internet, there are many car rental websites that offer budget discounts for monthly rentals.
Other advantages of long term car rental include not having to return the car every month. All contracts for each of the months you want to use the car are filled out at the start. Some car rental companies, however, will need you to have the car checked up and serviced after some thousands of miles in mileage. You will be billed for each month automatically. And of course there is the 24 hour emergency service that you can use with a long term car rental that is included in your deal.
Long term car rentals not only give you added savings, but give you the freedom and flexibility that owning your own car gives without the overhead in maintenance and tax worries. If your work finds you far from your home, renting cars on the long term makes more sense than buying a new car for one or two years, having to worry about the maintenance of the car, spending for costly repairs and taxes. Even if you resell your car after one year, you may stand to lose more in depreciation than if you had just gotten a long term car rental plan from the start.
Make double sure that your monthly price you are going to pay covers most, if not all, of the insurance and other miscellaneous fees.
