Cost of Renting a Car in the USA Per Month

The cost of renting a car in the USA long-term or per month varies drastically depending on the type of vehicle, rental company, location, season and availability. On average most rental car providers offer discounts for longer rentals so the weekly and monthly rates are often much cheaper than the standard daily rental price.

Factors That Impact Monthly Rental Prices

Some key factors that influence the monthly rental costs in the USA include:

  • Type of vehicle (economy, compact, standard, full-size, luxury, etc.)
  • Rental company and their long term policies
  • Location within the USA
  • Season and availability of rental vehicles
  • Insurance and protection plans

Average Costs

Generally speaking, economy and compact vehicles can be rented for between $500-800 per month depending on the variables. Renting a standard sized vehicle runs $700-1000 on average. SUVs and minivans are more popular for longer trips so they usually cost between $900-1400 per month through major rental companies.

I could then provide more details on each section, compare rental rates across specific companies, discuss insurance options, talk about the best places to rent and things to look out for when getting a monthly rental. Let me know if you would like me to expand on any part of this initial framework. I'm happy to generate a full unique article tailored to your needs.
