How To Rent Tesla For A Day

3 TIPS On Getting The Keys

You’ve probably heard of how luxurious and high-tech Tesla cars are known to be. They are the ultimate car for performance, safety, and self-driving technology. However, driving a Tesla can be accompanied by a high price tag. For example, a Tesla Model S can cost you more than 80,000 dollars to own, which may be out of budget for you. If you still want to try out a Tesla, renting one for the day is a great option.

Tesla Rental Options

The Tesla models that are generally available for rental include:

  • Tesla Model S
  • Tesla Model X
  • Tesla Model 3
  • Tesla Model Y
  • Tesla Roadster 1.0

If you want to drive a Tesla, there’s a way to do it. You have multiple options available to rent a Tesla, from car rental agencies to premium car apps. It’s important to remember that you will realistically need to spend anywhere from $90–200 to rent a Tesla for a day. This does not include any additional insurance you will need to purchase on top of the rental cost.

1. Car Rental Company

The easiest way to rent a Tesla is to check through your local car rental agency such as Avis, Hertz, Enterprise, or Budget. These big chains frequently exchange cars and have multiple locations in one city, so your chances of finding a Tesla is high. You will find it easier to rent a Tesla in bigger cities such as Miami, New York City, and Los Angeles because of the popularity of Tesla in those areas. However, it still doesn’t hurt to check smaller towns.

To be eligible to rent a car from any of these major chains, you will need to make sure you have a valid driver’s license, car insurance, a major credit card, and be at least 25 years old. You might still be able to rent a Tesla under 25, but the additional fees can bring your rental out of budget. Rules vary per dealership, so make sure to call each company directly to verify.

2. Turo Car Sharing

Turo is a car-sharing app where you can rent out other people’s cars on a daily or weekly basis. All you need to do is download the application, create an account for yourself and enter your location. From there, you’ll be able to see all the cars available for you to rent. Most cities have a bunch of Tesla’s to rent. The variety of vehicles you can find on this platform is exceptional. Plus, you can receive discounts for renting on a weekly or monthly basis. However, it can cost you if you go over the set mileage, which can be changed by the specific car owner.

3. Check Your Accommodation’s Excursions

Vacation Destinations are always offering unique excursions and activities for their guests to entice and attract more visitors. Your accommodation may already offer Tesla test drives as a part of their excursions. Call down to guest services, or view their website to see what they currently offer. Even if they don’t provide that service, they can usually arrange a rental on your behalf.

Renting a Tesla is a budget-friendly way to experience this luxurious car. If you’ve been interested in the car, try using any of the above methods to book yourself a day to experience the technology and power of a Tesla car.
