Renting a car, really, is the sensible option when it comes to deciding to buy it or rent it. The moment you buy a car and drive it out of the dealership, it has lost a large percentage of its value. Fair enough, it can take you to work and back, take the family away for the day, but most of the time it is parked up in your garage or on your driveway, and it is costing you money, as you stand there admiring it. You need to get insurance for it, tax it, put it through necessary government checks to check its roadworthiness, and this is all costing you money. Not just sometimes, but all the time, seven days a week, every month, every year, you are paying to have it.
When renting a car, you are acquiring a vehicle on a pay-as-you-go basis. You pay for the time that you are using the car, and when it comes time to leave it back, then you stop paying. It’s simple and cost effective. In everyday life, due to financial constraints, we don’t get to buy the car that we really want,and it must be heartbreaking buying a family saloon, when there is a convertible sports car right there beside it. However, responsibilities towards family and the wife, means that you can’t buy that little red number. However, when renting a car, you get to choose the car of your dreams and you get to drive around in it for as long as you like. Renting a car really does make dreams come true.
The family RV is now a popular choice for people to purchase, and for all intents and purposes, it is a fantastic vehicle that transports all the family in safety. However, you may need to go into the city for business and driving this large vehicle around is not practical, and is certainly not cost effective, if there is only you in the car. Sometimes it is good to downsize and rent a vehicle from Auckland rental car, that is more practical. It is easier to find parking places in the city for a smaller vehicle, and this smaller vehicle is much easier on fuel. The same works the other way around. If you have a smaller car and you want to take all the family into the city, then renting a people carrier is a great option.
Many cities and quite a number or airports in Australia, have great transport systems like trains or buses. But getting a rental vehicle, means that you can go directly to where you want to go. Yes, the train or bus will take you into the city, but it won’t take you to exactly where you want to go, unless you are really lucky. Hiring a car, especially when it is a family, is much cheaper than taking the train or bus, and it also means a smaller carbon footprint.
Renting a car is definitely the right choice and it is much cheaper than you think it is. You get to drive a regularly maintained vehicle that is reliable, and guaranteed to get you where you want to go.
