How to get a luxury car and not burn the entire pocket?

Luxury cars are dreams for a lot of people out there. But being able to drive them is not even a percent of hassle as what it was earlier. Around the world, there are so many companies, so many people out there that are letting other people hire luxury cars. Luxury car hire is a thing today and is trending in a number of countries. Especially those that have huge amounts of tourist inflows and that have the roads and tracks for the luxury cars drives.

Are these luxury car rentals safe?

There might be a number of questions that the brains might be posing now, especially if it is the first time one has heard or read about the rentals that rent out luxury cars. Well, they are absolutely safe and they do let people take the cars on hourly or daily basis, with a little extra precaution as compared to if one was renting out a normal car. And it does make sense, does it not? Luxury cars are quite expensive. It is not less known that cars that are luxurious are pricey, they might go as high as 10,00,00,000 INR (Indian Rupees). And the starting prices are around 50,00,000 INR.

What are the pre-requisites one has to have to be able to rent a luxury car?

The pre-requisites to be able to rent a luxury car are not any more special than while buying a normal car, expect for a few things. To be able to rent a luxury car, most rental companies do set an age bar. Minimum age bar being 19 years old. However, there are companies that do not rent cars to the person who is below 21. There are some documents checks’ like the basic driving licenses and the nativity documents if you are renting it in some country that you have gone to travel to. What they also do check is if the driver or the person renting it out is capable enough to drive the car. It must be noted that driving a luxury car is difficult and can be really out of control at high speeds. People who do not have practice with sports and luxury cars cannot drive it so well. However, luxury cars that are solely meant for luxury like the Rolls Royce, and not so much for speed are not as difficult as sports cars. Having said, this leads the article to another FAQ (Frequently asked Question)

Does luxury car hire mean that the one hiring has to drive?

No, it is not necessary that luxury car hire requires the one hiring to drive. There are rentals that have the option to choose the cars with or without drivers, based on your preference and practice levels. Both these options come with different pricings, of course and can be checked online on the companies’ websites or can be asked in advance by contacting the customer support people of the particular company.

Can one book the car in another country while they are not in that country, well in advance before the trip?

For example, X lives in India and is planning to visit Dubai (UAE) for this summer. Maybe her kids are forcing her for this vacation. That does not matter, does it? However, if X is planning a great ride on the most beautiful Maserati for the vacations along the most enchanting highways of Dubai, she might want to book the car well in advance. So, she has the question of if or not she can do that while she is in India. And the answer is, yes, she can. Luxury Cars Hire facilities of most countries are now online and as long as one has an internet connection, they can easily book the car online, after the required verifications. The car can then be taken on the date of booking from the receiving address given beforehand.

What are the countries that have these facilities?

Most countries today do. Well to name a few, Dubai, France, Germany, Australia, Mexico, London, India, and so many more.

Are these expensive?

Well, of course it would be slightly expensive but if a budget is maintained and savings are done, the costs would not look so much for the cars that you can ride. The prices are different on different websites and definitely vary with countries. With Dubai, since there are so many of these facilities the prices have driven down. So, good luck there!
