Safari Overview The Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting is around the corner, Kigali car rentals…
Having been in the car rental business for a long period, and having studied the car rental business in Rwanda Kigali car rentals is now offering annual and monthly car rentals.
What are the advantages and how much you save by renting a car for longer periods?
Annual and monthly car rentals with us are very similar to the already traditional car rental, but with one big difference: the time duration of the rental.
Unlike ordinary Rwanda car rentals, often used for short trips, weekends, or more specific occasions, the purpose of annual or monthly car rentals in Rwanda is a little different. This is a service designed for those visiting Rwanda for a long period and need a car on a daily to run errands or work related activities.
How does long-term Car rental work?
The annual or monthly car rental in Rwanda is very similar to a short-term rental, but for a longer duration. If you have rented a car with Kigali car rentals before, whether, on long term or a weekend getaway, you already know a lot about what is involved.
If you booked a car for a longer period of time, Kigali car rentals will offer a better discount on the rental. Generally, it is progressive, so the longer the contracted period, the more you save.
Kigali car rentals will offer a discount based on the car you choose and where you hope to use the car. The millage is always unlimited. Everything is very flexible so that you find an offer that is convenient for you.
With the monthly car rental, you can keep the car from one to several months, and renew the contract according to your needs. If you want to return the car ahead of time, that is also fine, As long as the minimum number of rental days in the contract has passed.
What are the advantages of an annual and monthly car rental?
There are so many advantages to renting a car per month or year, so we put together a list.
One of the main advantages of renting a car with us for a longer period of time is the price factor. In many cases, renting a car for a month is cheaper than having your own car. Besides being cheaper than owning a car, it can also be cheaper than renting a car for short periods. This is because if a person already plans to rent for a slightly longer period of three weeks, for example, renting a car per month can compensate precisely for the reduction in the rate we mentioned above. If the dates fit your plans, that’s a good idea!
When you rent a car from a rental company, they remain responsible for all the bureaucracy involved in having a car: documentation, insurance, maintenance, taxes, among others. This means that the car stays with you, as if it were yours on a daily basis, but without the worry of revising or renewing documentation.
The rental companies that rent monthly allow you to return the car whenever you want. If you need the car longer, that’s no problem either: the rental can be extended for as long as necessary. If you want to return it earlier, just pay attention to the minimum period: the cheapest monthly rate is generally valid for rentals of 28 days or more. As already mentioned above, if you need to return the car earlier, the rate charged will be the same as for a “regular” rental according to the value of the rental on the day the contract is issued.
No need to worry about insurance or maintenance
As the car is not effectively yours, it is also not your responsibility to worry about the insurance and its renewal, as well as maintenance. If you have any problems with the car, just contact the rental company. Moreover, the cars rented in the monthly modality already come with obligatory basic protection, which assures the car in case of day to day hiccups, like minor repairs.
How much does it cost to rent a car for a month?
The price of a car rental per month will depend on some conditions under which you would like to rent the car, Period of time etc.
Is long-term rental an option for me?
The annual or monthly car rental is for those who not feel the need to have a car in their name. With the rise of the collaborative economy, health and safety reasons and services that seek to share experiences and even goods, this is a trend to be closely followed in the coming years. If you always like to have a new car and change it quite often (every year, for example), this service can also work very well for you! This is because the expenses and depreciation of the car are often much higher than the monthly rent.
