Long Term Car Rental

361 98 February 15, 2018 at 02:29 PM
I am going to need an SUV for next 3+ months as my MIL who will be staying with us for medical reasons, has a tough time getting in and out of sedans that are built low to the ground.

I thought of buying a decent low end SUV like Jeep Patriot (Fan of Jeep) and selling it a few months later, but apart from selling pains, it will come with registration, taxes, insurance, property tax and so on.. so looking for a long term rental (3 months) for about $600.

Any help finding a deal like that?

Thanks in advance.

That price point will be challenging considering the costs you mentioned as well as maintenance, roadside assistance, etc. being included in the price of a rental.

Enterprise [enterprise.com], Avis [avis.com], Budget [budget.com] and Hertz [hertz.com] all have long term rental programs (links take you to the long term program info)

Swapalease.com although I think the minimum may be 6 months. Still it could end up maybe being cheaper. The big agencies don't offer much in the way of discounts for long term rentals.
