The average price of an entry-level luxury car is around $40,000-$100,000. Unless you have a few thou saved up for a rainy day or you’re about to inherit a small fortune, you might want to rent a luxury car rather than commit to buying one.
Whether you want to rent a luxury car for an event, a vacation or simply to enjoy the thrill of driving one, there are so many options to choose from.
This guide will break down how to rent a luxury car and luxury car rental costs so you can choose the right car for your budget and have an unforgettable experience.
What Is the Cost to Rent a Luxury Car?
There are many variables that affect the cost to rent a luxury car. Firstly, “luxury” could describe any kind of vehicle from a high-end sedan to a Rolls Royce. The difference in daily rental costs between those two vehicles is thousands of dollars.
The cost also depends on how long you want to rent the car, whether you’re renting the car on a public holiday (Valentine’s Day, for example, is more expensive), or even if you’re renting on a weekend. An exotic car rental tends to be more expensive on a weekend.
And where you’re located/hiring the car will make a huge difference in the cost and availability of luxury cars.
These are all things to consider when renting a luxury car. Here are some examples of luxury car rental costs and read more here for a detailed supercar rental cost breakdown.
The Cost to Rent a Cadillac DTS
On the lower end of the spectrum, renting a high end or luxury sedan like the Cadillac DTS is a very affordable option. Renting this type of car from a major US city or airport will cost around $600-650 per week.
This is almost double the average US car rental cost of $361 per week for a standard car, but nowhere as much as renting other luxury cars.
The Cost to Rent a Range Rover
Renting a luxury car for a day, or by the day, is much more common than by the week. You can expect to rent a mid-priced Range Rover for around $600 a day.
Yes, around the same price as renting a Cadillac for a week.
The Cost to Rent a Lamborghini
If you’d rather drive a glamorous high-end sports car, the costs skyrocket but there’s a considerable cost difference between makes.
Lamborghini and Ferrari car rental prices are very similar. But for some luxury car fans, a Lamborghini rental is the only luxury car rental that will do. If you don’t have a spare $30,000 for a down payment, it’s a car lover’s only hope of driving one.
Renting a Lamborghini Gallardo will cost around $1,000 but if you’re a “go big or go home” kind of person, it’s $2,500 for a car like the Lamborghini Aventador Roadster.
But can you put a price on a bucket list dream, like getting the chance to drive a Lamborghini?
