Creative Uses For a Rental Car

The vast majority of car rentals are the result of a common scenario: a traveler who has no reliable transportation at their destination rents a car for the duration of their trip before returning home. But we’ve found that’s not the only way you can use a rental car. There are a few scenarios that are not only creative, they’re just plain smart! Here are a few creative uses for a rental car.

Wedding Car Rental

We can’t supply the soda cans and string, but if you’re tying the knot, we have you covered for your “Just Married” getaway car. Many couples are now choosing to rent a special car for their post-nuptial cruise, and while we know you love your old Subaru, a luxury rental car is a great way to celebrate in style. A wedding car rental is one of our most popular reasons for renting a car, and you might be surprised at the wide selection of vehicles to choose from. You probably don’t need this reminder if you’re planning a wedding, but just in case, remember the earlier you book, the more likely we are to have the car you want.

Test Drive

Buying a car can be stressful, and for many, it takes time to zero in on the car they need. One of the seminal moments of the process is the test drive – when you take your potential car for a spin around the block. The problem with the standard test drive, however, is the short amount of time you actually get to test the car. Resist the urge to make a snap judgment, and instead, rent your potential car for a week. Understanding how this important investment performs under real-life circumstances is well worth the low price of a rental.

Moving Car Rental

If you’re relocating, transporting all of your possessions to your new home can be a major headache. Moving trucks are effective if you’re moving large possessions; a bed, couch, or other large pieces of furniture. But if you don’t need that much space, or you’re simply not comfortable driving a massive truck across the country, renting a spacious car, truck, or SUV is a great option. If you’re making the move solo, you can use our one-way rental – allowing you to drop off the rental in your new location. Or if someone is nice enough to help you move, they can return the car to its original location upon their return.

Date Night

If date night has gotten a little stale, renting a car can be a fun way to get out of the same ol’ routine. If you want to keep things classy, put on your fanciest suit or dress, make reservations at a swanky restaurant, buy tickets to the opera or ballet, and pick up your partner in a luxury rental car. If you want to tap into your relationship’s adventurous side, find a car that’s road-trip ready, and hit the road for a romantic date in a special destination. It’s a subtle change, but renting a car is a great way to switch things up.
