Ever wanted to drive a luxury car, but couldn’t face the cost of buying or even renting one?

It’s time to make your dream a reality. You can now rent a new BMW, Land Rover, Jaguar or Mini at significantly lower prices than any other Australian car rental company.

DriveMyCar, Australia’s largest peer-to-peer car rental platform, has just added a range of new BMW, Jaguar, Land Rover and Mini models to its fleet, enabling people to experience a luxury car without the costs involved with owning one.

Through a partnership with Trivett, one of Australia’s largest prestige automotive groups, DriveMyCar will allow drivers to rent premium cars at prices up to 70% cheaper than a similar model from a traditional car rental company.

With 1.9 million Australians using car and ridesharing services in 2016 alone, according to Telsyte research, the demand for these types of services is growing substantially.

Vehicles from many of these luxury brands have previously been unavailable for rent in Australia, despite this the prices are still significantly lower than similar vehicles offered by traditional car rental companies.

For example, one day cruising in a:

  • Range Rover Evoque will only cost $75 at DriveMyCar, while a similar model at a traditional car rental company will set drivers back $142.86
  • Mini Cooper S will only cost $65 at DriveMyCar, while for a similar price at a traditional car rental company drivers will get a Hyundai Veloster or Toyota Camry
  • BMW X1 will only cost $70 at DriveMyCar, while for a similar price at a traditional car rental company drivers will get a Mitsubishi Outlander

Making luxury more accessible

By tapping into Trivett’s luxury fleet, Sydney and Melbourne drivers now have access to affordable luxury. Peter Mullan, Managing Director, Trivett said, “This venture offers customers a wonderful entree into a wide variety of prestige models. For discerning drivers that want to be certain they are making the right choice, it’s a fantastic way to ‘live’ with a vehicle for a little while and ensure it meets their needs. It’s in line with our innovative customer-centric philosophy, aimed at delivering premium service at every touchpoint.”

Chris Noone, CEO, DriveMyCar, “Customers are fed up with the high prices and lack of choice provided by traditional car rental companies. To address this, DriveMyCar is giving people the opportunity to experience luxury vehicles by renting them directly from Trivett, one of Australia’s largest prestige automotive dealers, at very reasonable prices.”

Across Sydney and Melbourne including Sydney & Melbourne Airports, drivers can now rent these luxury vehicles for a period of seven to 365 days, with the entire process managed by DriveMyCar including online booking, pick up, payments and feedback.

All rentals include insurance for damage or theft and 24/7 roadside assistance, giving renters peace of mind that they’re protected throughout the entire rental period.
