Reasons for Monthly and Long-Term Car Rentals

There are many reasons why a long-term rental might be a smart option to consider. Check out the list below for frequent scenarios that have prompted Dollar customers to consider monthly car rentals:

  • Extended Trips and Vacations: The best trips are those that offer the most time and opportunity to relax and explore. When you’ve booked a trip for up to a month or longer, enjoy the convenience of a long-term car rental to get you to all those adventurous places you want to be during your time off.
  • Car Replacement: Car accidents and breakdowns are unfortunate, but they do happen. If you’re in a pinch while getting the family car repaired, an affordable monthly car rental can provide the security, comfort, and convenience you and your family need.
  • Seasonal work: Sometimes jobs require flexibility – which means opportunities to stay for a month in another city for a project, or temporarily relocating for a season or two. A long-term car rental is a great solution to the flexibility you need.
  • Overall Savings: If you’re in need of a rental car for longer than the average rental period, a monthly or long-term car rental actually turns out to be more affordable than a short-term lease or several shorter rentals.

Dollar Long-Term and Monthly Car Rental FAQs

Answers to some of the top frequently asked questions are listed below, and more information can be found by checking out our full FAQs page.

How are monthly car rental reservations made?

Reservations for monthly car rentals can be made via GDS, www.dollar.com or by calling the Reservation Department Specialty Desk for Dollar at 877-259-3824.

What is the benefit of a long-term car rental vs. a short-term lease?

The main difference to note between the two is that long-term car rentals can be canceled at any time while short-term leases cannot. This convenience offers Dollar customers peace of mind when choosing monthly car rentals.

Can a current rental be converted over to a monthly car rental?

No, monthly car rentals cannot begin in mid-stream. They must start with a new reservation. If a renter is already in a car, the car must either be returned and a new rental started with a new reservation or finish out the existing rental and switch to monthly on the next rental.

What are the renter’s responsibilities for monthly car rentals?

Renters must sign an additional form, the Multi-Month RA Addendum form, at the time of rental. By signing this form, the renter agrees to:

  • Provide accurate mileage from the vehicle’s odometer to the Specialty Desk every 30 days
  • Have preventive maintenance (oil changes) done on the vehicle every 4,000 miles
  • Pay a mileage charge of $.25/mile for any mileage over 4,200 per 30 days

What is the absolute limit for monthly car rentals?

Multi-month rentals can for no reason exceed six (6) months in length.

What is the average monthly cost range for a long-term rental?

There are a number of variables that determine the cost of a monthly rental, such as rental make and model. For a direct quote, call the Dollar Sales Support Department at 1-800-331-3550.
