A Beginner’s Guide to Exotic Car Rentals

Imagine sitting behind the wheel in a sleek interior gliding down the road driving the smoothest car you have ever had the opportunity to drive.  All of that can happen when you rent an exotic rental car.  Driving an exotic rental car provides a thrill and sense of adventure to the driver without having to worry about the responsibility that comes with the upkeep and maintenance of owning an exotic car.

However, if you have never rented an exotic car before the process can feel a little intimidating. Exotic car rentals can be more complex depending on the rental company you choose to rent the car from. Sometimes there are certain restrictions or added paperwork that come with renting an unusual vehicle.  Using this beginner’s guide to exotic car rentals can help make the process go smoothly and allow you to enjoy driving the exotic car of your dreams.

Take Some Time to Shop Around

One of the things that makes exotic cars so enticing is that there is a limited amount available to rent. The idea of being one of the only people in the world to drive a specific car is appealing to many people.  However, it is worth taking some time to shop around and do your research for the best rental package and options available even if there are limited options available.

Different companies offer different opportunities and experiences based on where they are located and what cars they have available. When possible, take time to call the companies so that you can have specific questions answered ahead of time before you sign a rental agreement.

Pricing for Exotic Car Rentals

Many people that are renting an exotic car for the first time are curious about the rental prices. Due to exotic cars needing special maintenance, as well as the fact that there are a limited number on the market to rent, prices can be extremely high. Sticking to a budget is an important part of the planning process for renting an exotic car. Planning your finances is one of the most important steps before you sign a rental agreement. Make sure you are in a good financial position before you spend a lot of money renting an exotic car.

Some exotic cars start around a few hundred dollars a day, but many can cost a few thousand dollars for one single day.  Just remember that you are paying for the experience and it will be worth it to drive the car of your dreams, even if just for a day.

Be Prepared Before You Rent

Remember that exotic car rentals are in high demand and there are a limited number of cars available. Once you have done some price comparison and found the car of your dreams to rent, make sure that it is available during the time frame you will need it. Another important thing to consider is whether there are any mileage restrictions. Keep in mind if you are planning to drive the car out of state you may need special permission.

Also keep in mind that there will likely be different paperwork and requirements for you to complete before you hit the road. Being prepared for the process can help save you time as well as ensure that you have everything you need for the rental process to go as planned.

Plan an Adventurous Rental Experience

Many potential exotic car renters already have an idea in mind for how they want to use the rental car. Exotic cars are often rented for special occasions or to enhance a vacation experience. One idea that many people are not aware of is renting exotic cars to drive on race tracks. While this is for a shorter rental period, it provides a once in a lifetime experience of being able to test out some of the fastest cars in the world on an actual race track.

Renting an exotic car also gives you an opportunity to seek adventure in a way you haven’t before. Planning adventurous experiences provides numerous benefits including giving you something to look forward to while also boosting your mood during the experience. If you are renting the car for a trip, consider renting a convertible exotic car to be able to soak in the entire experience as you drive.

Protect Yourself and the Car with Rental Insurance

One of the most important things you need to do before driving off the rental company lot is to make sure you have insurance for the rental car. If any damage occurs during the time you are in control of the vehicle, you will be held responsible. In other words, you may end up paying for something out of pocket that wasn’t part of your planned budget.

While many rental car companies offer their own insurance, it is always a good idea to check with your own independent car insurance company first. Compare the two options to see which one will cover more for damages. Taking the cheaper option for rental car insurance is never advised simply to protect yourself in case of any incidents that may occur.

Whether you are behind the wheel of an exotic car on a race track or the open road, you are guaranteed to make memories to last a lifetime. Remember to make sure you invest in rental insurance and do some shopping around before you commit to a rental agreement. Getting advice from friends or family that have rented exotic cars can also help you become more familiar with the process.

Finding your dream exotic rental car may take a little bit of time and research, but it will be worth it once you sit behind the wheel. Don’t forget to take pictures so you can cherish the memories for a lifetime. Just be careful, since renting an exotic car once will likely get you hooked and you will want to replicate the experience as often as possible.
