    Renting a Model S - world wide

    There are more and more places one can rent a Model S now. Various locations in Europe and the US, but also other locations, many lesser known. I rented one in October 2014 in Germany, and was very satisfied! Oh, the joy of driving a Model S while you are on vacation!

    Still a bit expensive, prices are expected to come down. At the moment it seems to hover around 300-400 USD pr day for commercial rentals, and 200 USD/day for private. There are significant fluctuations, though.
    Thank you for making thread sticky, I now registered as paying member of TMC and will update this list

    Please simply reply to this thread (see post #2) with updates. You can send me a private message to speed up things but keep information here as replies thanks.

    Next time you travel, just look up the nearest location, and read reviews from other users. You can also simply post where you are going here, to contact to local TMC members who are willing to rent out their Model S privately, or offer your own car.

    The economics of Model S are very strong for limo services, to the point where I wonder if Tesla's Supercharger business model is really going to work. Many of the limo prices are quite reasonable for limos; I haven't yet found a decently priced drive-it-yourself rental. :-P

    Thank you so much, neroden, I have merged your information into the list.

    We need MORE places here, also reviews. Any owner here who tried to rent a Tesla, either privately or from a commercial company?

    This "service" has more purposes: 1) Support those who use EVs for limo/rental 2) drive up the demand for EVs 3) Enable TMC users to avoid ICE cars even when traveling
