In Need of a Vintage Car, Sports Car, or Alphard Rental? Here’s How Much It Will Cost You
Luxury car rentals are usually reserved for formal occasions, such as weddings and debuts. But who's to say you can't be chauffeured around in a Benz or a Ferrari on any given day? For whatever the reason you may need a temporary set of swanky wheels, here are some luxury rental options you may want to consider along with their hourly rates:
LXV offers a variety of services, from airport transfers, to long-term car rentals, to bridal mobiles, to plain old sedan rentals. One can drive away with a Rolls-Royce Ghost or a 2015 Ferrari 458 Italia for hours that stretch from four to ten hours. Luxury van rentals include the Lexus LM, Hyundai H350, and Toyota Alphard, for reasonable prices. If you’re in need of extra care, then the company also offers convoy services for VIPs, complete with security personnel.
