• Exotic Car Rental: Advantages and Disadvantages of Renting an Exotic Car

    When using an exotic car rental, there are both pros and cons to be aware of. Exotic car rentals specifically deal with cars that are extremely expensive. There are many rental companies that offer this all around the world. They’re great for special occasions and the cost for renting these hundred thousand dollar cars (and even those more expensive) is relatively low compared to that.

    Advantages

    • Driving an exotic car is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity for most people. The cars in fleet of these companies are worth millions combined, even though it’s only a small amount of cars. The cars are extremely rare, and you just don’t see that many on the road. Examples of exotic cars are Ferraris, Lamborghinis and Bentleys. Most people will never see one, no less drive one. For the small cost of renting, you can feel like a million bucks.
    • The charges for renting a car that retails for $200,000 is not that bad. Although all companies differ, most of the time, the cars are about $1000 a day. This fluctuates, and the “cheaper” cars may run you a little bit less.
    • When you rent one of these cars, they detail it for you so that it looks like it did when it was made. The car comes fueled, and then you don’t even need to pay for any gas, even if you return it on empty.
    • The companies know that these cars may be hard to drive, so they offer a crash course to train you to drive it. The cars have incredibly high performance.
    • The car will truly put a smile on your face the whole time you’re driving it. You will get looks from every other driver and bystander on the road as you go by them in your exotic car.

    Disadvantages

    • Even though the price may not be that great compared to the price of a car, the rental cost can be viewed as a con depending on the way you look at it. It will cost you approximately $1000 a day, so that can be expensive if you’re just using it while you’re on vacation. It’s more for special events like a wedding, or for TV and film shoots or other uses.
    • Due to the price of these vehicles, the rental companies often require a certain amount of insurance for yourself and the car. If you don’t have enough, they may reject your rental, or require you to get more, which will increase the price.
    • These cars are extremely hard to drive. It will be a new driving experience. A disadvantage can be the risk you’re taking. You’re driving a very expensive car that you will be on the hook for if something should happen. It may cause some pressure behind the wheel while you’re having the ride of your life.

    Overall, exotic car rentals are worth the money, as it’s not every day that you can drive in a Ferrari or Lamborghini.
