Three Tips To Help You Choose The Right Exotic Rental For You

Tags: ,

The decision to rent an exotic car is not one that most people make lightly. While it’s definitely the case that renting an exotic car allows you to afford, for a little while, a car that you would otherwise never be able to buy, the cost is still not so little that you don’t want to at least take your time making the decision. Renting an exotic car is the type of experience that should be savored. The memories you build while behind the wheel of an exotic car rental will stick with you for a good long while. They are part of the experiences that each of us adds to the repertoire of our life’s adventures and excitement during the time that we’re alive. This begs the question: With so many wonderful exotic cars available at a rental site like this one, how do you choose the exotic rental car that is right for you? How do you select one that is a good fit for your preferences, your personality, and the adventure you are hoping to have? Finding the right exotic car rental is actually fairly easy… if you follow these three basic guidelines that are intended to make the process go smoothly and provide you with the best possible outcome.

Do your homework
Whatever you do, don’t just walk onto an exotic car rental lot without any information. Most of what you think you know about the world’s most expensive, most exotic automobiles is actually pretty inaccurate. This is not your fault. Most of what you know about exotic cars you have learned from television and movies. You have no frame of reference for what these cars are like to experience, to drive, and to have in your life, because for most people these cars are simply too expensive. You can’t be expected to know what it’s like, and our popular entertainment is full of imagery of such cars precisely because people find them so compelling. The difference between the reality and the imagery, though, is pretty major. Here is just one example: In one of the most famous examples of a television commercial filming gone horribly wrong, the plan was to jump an expensive Ferrari sports car over an obstacle. Knowing that they had only one chance to film the sports car, the producers of the commercial found another car that didn’t cost nearly as much. That car weighed exactly the same as the Ferrari. They set up their test track for the commercial, drove the car over the ramp, and managed to make the spectacular jump with room to spare. Convinced their plan would work, the producers then jumped the Ferrari… and watched in horror as it fell short of the mark by a considerable distance. The problem wasn’t the weight and it certainly wasn’t the power of the motor. The problem was that the ground clearance of the Ferrari was much, much less than it is for most conventional automobiles, and this made a big difference in how the Ferrari handled the jump.

You won’t be jumping over any obstacles no matter what exotic car you decide to rent, but that isn’t the point. The point is that before you ever set foot on the rental lot, you should have an idea in your head of what you want. You should know what kind of car you would most like to drive, what kind of exotic car has the features that you want, and what kind of exotic car will bring you the most enjoyment. You need to do the research online so that you have some idea of what the experience will be like. There are plenty of people who have rented and driven exotic cars before you, and the experience is unique enough that they have taken the time to chronicle their adventures. You can learn valuable things from these individuals and you can apply this to your own visit to the exotic car rental lot. Armed with this information, you can then make a much more informed choice when you go to the rental lot, especially if the owners are willing to permit limited test drives. (This will vary from rental dealer to rental dealer.)

The earlier you book, the better the chance of getting what you want
As with renting any more conventional automobile, there are only so many cars available at any given moment. As exotic car rentals tend to involve vehicles that are much more costly, a typical rental agency will have only a few Lamborghinis compared to, say, the number of Chevy Malibus available on an ordinary car rental lot. This means that if you want to get the car you truly want, you’ve got to book early in order to reserve the one that truly makes you most excited. It’s always a good idea to plan ahead so that you know your driving for the rental period won’t involve any slogs through territory you would rather not take an exotic rental car, such as construction areas or extended traffic congestion. Booking early also increases your chances of getting the best possible rate, because as every knows, as supply dwindles, prices rise. The more cars available, the better will be the rates at which you will be able to book them. Booking a car at the last minute, however, will cut your choices while raising the price.

Set aside everything you know about driving
Finally, if you want to select the exotic rental car that is truly right for you, you have to set aside everything you THINK you know about driving a car. Exotic cars are not like any automobile you’ve driven before. They are a special breed of high-performance machine. Driving such a vehicle is an end unto itself. It isn’t about the journey you take; it’s about the machine you climb aboard to get there. This is what driving an exotic car is all about… and we truly hope you’ll pick the one that is most right for you.
