Do anyone know where I can get cheap car rentals for couple of months. I am looking to rent a car for about 3-4 months.

I do not want to spend a lot. I have seen Hertz, Enterprise etc but they are too expensive.

Your best bet would probably be to buy an older car that's fully depreciated dirt cheap in the hope of selling it for what you paid when you no longer need it. Renting a car for 3-4 months is going to be expensive regardless of where you go.

There used to be a Rent-A-Wreck in CR, but guess not anymore. This place sounds similar, Auto Value Rental. It would be better if you could find a cheap car and then sell it later, but finding one that won't become a short term headache might be difficult, especially if needing it right now. Are you needing a vehicle for a long trip or just around the area? Hope you can find something that will work for ya.

Thanks for the info.

The reason I am renting for a month or atleast couple of months is that I am planning to buy a new car. I want to save up enough in my job to buy a new one. My job will not allow me enough time to look and check on used cars. Its a tedious process.

If anyone has further info about rentals for long term or atleast leasing car for couple of months, I am open to that also.
