How to rent a Ferrari?


Have you thought about what to do with a sports car like a "rampant horse"?

Walking around the city, eating in the best restaurants or visiting the best fashionable places; totally agreed. But let's not fool ourselves, if you are thinking of renting a Ferrari you will probably want to enjoy, besides looking like a million bucks, its performance, power, luxury and exclusivity, so you might be interested in discovering some of the best routes to get the most out of your investment.

Talking about investment, let's start from the beginning. First of all you must have a credit card that can cover the deposit of the chosen model. This amount is usually between 3,000 and 9,000 euros so before you get into the car, check if your bank accepts the operation. It is important to check with the company if the vehicle is fully insured, since the usual practice in this type of sports car rental is for you to cover the first 1,200 euros in the event of an accident.

After the deposit (which will be refunded when the vehicle is delivered) we have to assume the cost of the rental itself. This varies depending on the model of the Ferrari available: a Ferrari 599 GTO is not the same as a Ferrari GTC4 Lusso. If we opt for a "basic" model such as a Ferrari 458 Italia or California, it costs approximately 900 euros for a full day.

Last but not least, take into account the cost of feeding the beast: the gasoline; because depending on the number of kilometers you plan to drive, this can be an important point to consider. Depending on the model, calculate an average consumption (at running temperature) of between 12 and 15 liters up (let's not talk about a cold engine ;) for a model like the California T.

Any questions? Here are the most common questions when renting a high-end car or luxury sports car, but if you do not find the answer to yours, contact us and we will publish it as soon as possible.

Age to rent a Ferrari

Although as you know the age to drive a Ferrari is the one set by the DGT (18 years) most of the luxury car rental companies start from the age of 26 as a requirement to rent these vehicles. But don't worry: if your VISA card allows it, you can surely reach a good agreement (extra charge between 50 and 100 euros) with the rental company even if you are younger than the minimum age.

Renting a Ferrari by the hour

There are companies that offer you to rent a Ferrari for half a day, which may be the best option, because unless you want to travel or do the 24 hours of Le Mans, you will not really get the full benefit of the investment.

Some companies also offer you, in exclusive models, the option of even renting your Ferrari for tailor-made time slots (with a minimum of 2 hours), such as a Ferrari California T for about 500 euros.

Vouchers for your rental Ferrari

Usually sports car rental companies have several days vouchers (usually 3 days to be exact), with which, for example, a Ferrari 458 Italia will cost you about 3,000 euros with a significant saving (almost 1,000) if we compare it with the 1,500 euros/day that this model usually costs.

If you are going to need a rental for a longer period or on a seasonal basis, companies will offer you a tight budget, with average prices well below the hourly cost mentioned above.

Kilometers included in the rental

It depends a lot on the company that rents you the Ferrari as well as the model chosen but they are usually limited to 150 and 200 kms in the basic rental. The additional kilometer usually costs between 3 and 5 euros (depending on the model) and do not usually let you exceed the total additional 100 kms.

If you are thinking of taking a trip and making the most of your experience with a Ferrari, ask the rental companies about this, as they usually offer special packages for this purpose, where the cost per kilometre will be much cheaper than the costs we have discussed above.

Accessing a circuit with a Ferrari

Although the circuits are the ideal place to enjoy these powerful machines, as you feared, the sports car rental companies do not allow it. The wear and tear that comes with driving a Ferrari on a racetrack would be so great that it does not compensate them by far for your financial contribution, in addition to the risk involved in any type of race, wherever it is held, due to the high probability of accidents.

On the other hand, it is possible to hire experiences with Ferrari or other sports cars in circuits, as it happens in the Jarama's Circuit. There are companies that offer you the possibility of taking a sports driving course with a Ferrari F430, a Ferrari 458 Italia, a Lamborghini Gallardo or a Lamborghini Huracán for example, even being able to combine all the models in one single experience (ideal, isn't it?).

These courses are directed and supervised by professional pilots. Prices vary greatly depending on track time, so to give you an idea, 6 laps of the Jarama Circuit can cost you around 300 euros with a Ferrari 458 Italia.

 

Picking up your rental Ferrari

Depending on the company offering the service and the model of Ferrari you want to drive, there may be different circumstances and options.

The most usual is to go to the warehouse where the vehicle is located, but it is also common to be offered the service of home delivery, because depending on the city where you are, probably the company has to transport the chosen Ferrari from another city. This service, depending on the model and days of rental, may be included in the price or have an additional cost.
