Rugged Rentals will offer nearly a third of its fleet to long-term rentals, including monthly contracts for its new Gem fleet, as of February 1.

The company is offering the pilot programme to determine if there is a demand, initially using ten of what is expected to be 34 Gem minicars by next month.

The new programme will allow individual rentals for one, two or three months for $95, $85 or $75 per day inclusive of a collision damage waiver.

Rugged Rentals owner, Tallent Clark, says: “With travel being relatively back to normal, we have seen an increase in demand for minicar rentals and have decided to expand our fleet.

“Having the option to rent minicars long term can help alleviate transportation issues some people face. This new model opens up business to a new kind of customer base and we look forward to the feedback.”

Corporate rentals for 12 months are also available for $2000 per month with two free drivers. This includes a collision damage waiver. Short-term rentals start at $175 a day for a minimum of two days.

The corporate statement said the compact Gem’s range allows drivers to travel the island almost four times and it can be charged at home with a regular outlet in the event of no access to Rugged Rentals charging stations.

The vehicles have air conditioning, Bluetooth radio, automatic windows and reverse camera.
