Wednesday, 29. March 2017 | Benedikt Lüchinger

Longer car rentals are ideal for temporary stays abroad or at a temporary workplace. The decision between long term rental and leasing is very important.

The ES Magazine presents various important aspects of a longer car rental and shows, how leasing and long term car rental differ.

Term

  • Leasing: Most of the time, the car has to be leased for at least a year and the rates will be high in the beginning.
  • Long term car rental: A flexible rental term between a month and several years is possible. The duration of a long term car rental fits your needs.

Flexibility

  • Leasing: Prior to signing the leasing contract, you will have to undergo a credit check. This procedure is very time-intensive and you need to show the bank all of your financials.
  • Long term car rental: Book your dream car today. The booking process is very straightforward and a credit check is not needed.

Suitability

  • Leasing: To lease a car only pays off financially from a leasing duration of about 1,5 years and more. Therefore, car leasing is suited for people that want to drive a car over a longer period of time but don’t want to buy the vehicle outright.
  • Long term car rental: Renting a car over a period of several months is ideally suited for employees that work 3-4 months at a certain location. This includes interim managers, sales people as well as individuals who ordered a new car but want to drive it now already. The B2B area has a lot of applications for long term car rentals as well.

Change of cars

  • Leasing: Without terminating your contract in favour of a contract with a new car, a change of leasing cars is not possible. This results in high costs and many hours of hassle with your bank.
  • Long term car rental: A change of cars is a lot easier. For example, you can change your car every 3 months without problems.

Price

  • Leasing: The longer you lease a car, the more it pays off financially compared to long term rentals. The leasing term has to be at least 1,5 to 2 years, before it gets cheaper.
  • Long term car rental: The long term rental is a bit more cost-intensive than leasing, especially from a rental duration of 1 to 1,5 years. In return, you profit from a lot of other advantages like the flexible booking process, the straightforward change of cars as well as extensive services such as cleaning, tyre service or engine service.

  • Long term car rental: According to your requirements, book our extensive cleaning service. Edel & Stark will perform a monthly complete cleaning of the car at selected locations (Switzerland, Germany, Austria, France, Dubai).

Services

  • Leasing: You have to pay extra for most additional services, this increases the price of your leasing contract.
