Renting a car is actually not much of a hassle than you would think it is. It is a great way to save some money while also enjoying the luxury of a car owner. You can do so many other things with your salary like savings, vacations and workshops of all sorts than keep most of it aside for the car insurance and maintenance.
When you buy a car, it is likely you will use it every day and most hours of that day. You will just be paying for the car to sit in your garage for the most part you are not using the car. When you rent a car DIP, this is obviously not the case. You straightaway only pay for when you drive.
Owning a car can turn out to be way more expensive than renting one. You will have to commit to years of car insurance, maintenance and servicing charges, tyre replacement and cleaning. Renting a car is actually way better in the long run as it does not occupy too much space in your monthly budgets.
If you buy a car, even a really good car, you are stuck with the model for a few years while other models are on the market with improved features. But you can't buy a new model every year, right? So, it is okay to rent a car model of your choice and use it for a few weeks and then switch it for a new one.
Frankly, it is just not practical to own two cars in case you want a city car for workdays and another one for road trips on the weekend. It is simply not economical. So why not sell the weekend one and replace it with a rental to cut costs or sell the city car and just rent one whenever you don't feel like taking the bus or train to work.
It is not a secret that cars emit harmful CO2 emissions. Some people do try to avoid driving cars when possible by using a cycle or public transport. Sometimes using a car in a journey just has no alternative. This may lead to conflict but don’t fret. If you don’t have a car simply rent one. Rental services now offer low emission cars too.
This is how you can actually live more efficiently if you rent a car and not buy one. It is a cost effective alternative.
