Rent a Sports Car for Affordable Luxury

Renting the car of your dreams may be easier and more affordable then you think. There are several rental companies that allow anyone to rent a sports car for a day, week, or even a month. There are a few details that accompany sports car rentals, like insurance costs and liability fees. However, this is to be expected when renting a luxury vehicle.

Places to Rent a Sports Car

While not all rental companies have BMW’s, Corvettes, Ferrari’s, and Mustangs available for rent, there are several that make it fairly easy to rent a sports car. Prestige Luxury Auto Rentals has stores in almost all 50 states, and rents Aston-Martins, Lamborghinis, Porsches and Rolls-Royces for about $500 per day, depending on the type of car desired. Exotic Car Rentals is a state-specific company specializing in high-luxury and high-performance vehicles. Rentals can be made daily, weekly, or monthly for as low as $179 per day along with a monthly rental agreement.

The “Fine Print” – Liability and Insurance

As with most things, the more expensive it is, the costlier it is to insure. Many companies will rent a sports car to a customer, but will not add insurance to the contract. If there is an accident, the customer must pick up the tab, and this can be quite expensive. Some companies will urge the purchase of optional collision damage insurance for $10 to $15 per day, which will cover all of the costs of the sports car in the case of an accident. In addition, personal accident insurance can also be purchased for about $5 per day, and this will cover personal medical costs if necessary.

Money Makes the World Go ‘Round

It is not inexpensive to rent a sports car. In addition to the higher daily rental payments, there are extra fees required due to the fact that these are high-performance machines. Extra fees include those for mileage (usually a couple cents per mile), credit card deposits for thousands of dollars to ensure the car is returned, and fuel charges for anyone who brings the car back running on fumes. Although the deposit is refundable, fuel charges can total up $5 or even $10 per gallon should the rental company have to refill the vehicle’s gas tank.

Available Models

There’s a sports car rental available for almost everyone who has ever fantasized about being behind the wheel of a luxurious and powerful vehicle. Whether they fancy themselves James Bond behind the wheel of an Aston-Martin, or dream of roaring across the Grand Prix finish line in a Porsche 911, they can make their dreams a reality, if only for a short time. In addition to the above models, customers can rent a variety of BMWs and Mercedes-Benz, along with models such as the Bentley Flying Spur, Ferrari F430, Rolls Royce Phantom, and several models of Lamborghinis.

For anyone who wants to experience how a high-performance vehicle takes corners, or just wonders what it would be like to ride in a Ferrari, sports car rental offers an alternative to a prohibitively expensive purchase. These rentals are not exactly cheap, but for a special occasion they can be a real bargain in exchange for a day of wish fulfillment.
