Both private individuals and companies have the option of renting vans for a longer period of time. But how does long-term rental differ from traditional leasing?
The most important advantage: The long-term rental offers you a very flexible period of use, which is determined in advance.
You can sign your rental agreement for two, four or ten months, depending on how long you want to use the van. In addition, many rental companies offer the option of changing vehicles within the rental period as well as adding or subtracting extras – at least if this has been specified in the agreement beforehand.
Another advantage over vehicle leasing is that it is easier to calculate expenses with long-term van rental. Car tax and insurance are often covered by the rental company, as are the costs of inspections and the like. This leaves only the fuel costs, which you have to pay yourself in addition to the monthly rent.
The relevant services are included in the agreement with many providers. However, you should once again find out what the individual conditions are before signing a long-term van rental agreement.
As with most rental cars, you must be over 21 years old and have held a driving licence for at least one year for long-term van rental. If applicable, the providers still have their own requirements regarding the driver's age, which you should definitely observe.
