No matter how you look at it, driving a supercar involves a lot of money. There is no getting around the total costs associated with owning such a vehicle. Some people try to circumvent the expenses of long-term ownership by renting a supercar for vacations, special events, or just to be able to feel cool for a day. However, there are some serious considerations to take into account before putting your signature on that rental agreement.
Age and Licensing Restrictions Some rental car companies will offer a car to a person in their late teens or early 20s, but most supercar rentals have a minimum age requirement of 25 before your request will be considered. You must have a valid driver's license and, for most companies, a clean driving record. The rental agency may even perform a criminal background check before renting a supercar. Some companies require the renter to undergo a specialized driver's test before releasing the car.
If required, such tests are usually quick and straightforward, but if you fail to pass you will find yourself going home without the supercar. It’s just not worth it to spend half of your vacation at the rental place trying to get the car. Rental and Insurance Costs After you've met the minimum age and licensing requirements, it's time to consider the total cost of renting a supercar. Initial deposits can cost anywhere from $1,000 to $50,000, depending on the make and model of vehicle, your geographic location and the rental agency's policies.
