Why Do Long Term Car Rental?

You probably ended up here because you were wondering if a long-term rental is good for you. So, to help you out a little, HummingBird Car Rental is gonna let you know the benefits of renting a car long-term in Jamaica. 

First of all, long-term rental is when you’re renting a car for more than 30 days. A few years ago people weren’t renting cars for this long. But, more and more, we find that people are renting cars for longer than the usual week or two. 

People do car hire for several reasons. The more common reasons are, they might be on an extended vacation or are doing a work project. There are others like Jamaican returning residents needing a car or just a person needing a rental until their car comes from the mechanic. But, whatever the reason may be, HBC has you covered. With that, here are some benefits of long-term rental. 


Firstly, everyone likes saving money. Saving money is one of the most notable benefits of long term car rental. Long-term rentals offer you the best rate. These rates are much cheaper than the usual rates. The rule is the longer you rent, the more you save. Renters get discounts for renting cars for more than 30 days at a time. For example, HBC offers our customers up to 50% off daily rentals. Taking pressure off your pockets.


Another benefit is that its hassle-free. Firstly, public transportation in Jamaica can be a hassle. For instance, time schedules are unreliable and the bus systems can be very confusing. Also, chartered taxi services are also not always reliable and can be very expensive. To travel across the island by taxi, especially for a long period of time, isn’t only expensive but you’re not always guaranteed to get a taxi when you want one. So, renting your own vehicle long term puts you in charge of your journey. Therefore, you’re able to travel across the island without the hassle. 

No Worries

Some people love the benefits of a long-term commitment without the actual commitment. A long-term car rental gives you this with cars. For instance, having your own car comes with the burden of worrying about maintenance, insurance, vehicle registration and the whole works. Some people would rather not have to deal with those burdens. So, this is another huge benefit of a long-term rental or lease; no worries. When renting a car you get to drive your rental around without the worries of registration, insurance and maintenance. HBC worries about all the paperwork, as well as, the technicalities for you. So, you can drive around with peace of mind.

HBC’s long term car rental special gives you all these benefits. We give you a cheap hassle-free mode of transportation without all the technical worries. Our great deal, with low rates and first-class service, makes car rental a dream for you. So, in case you have any more questions, here are some FAQs to help you out.
