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 important aspects of longer car rentals 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.
  • 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. 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 and 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.
  • 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.
