While my oldest will be entering Kindergarten this coming fall, I know it won’t be too long before we’re thinking about college. With college comes lots of new expenses, but it also comes with the work of juggling a college student in the summer. Whether your college student is working this summer or traveling to work for a few months in a new area, I’ve got a great idea for you.
Did you know that you can lease a car for just a few months at a time? When I first heard about DriveTime’s cancel anytime lease, I thought about college students. When I was in college, I didn’t have a car for my Freshman year. In fact, you weren’t permitted to have a car at Miami University, where I attended, unless you lived out of state. This caused quite the unique situation when I would come home for the summer to work for a few months. Suddenly, our family was juggling cars so that I could get to where I needed to go.
Did I ever tell you that I was a golf course ninja when I was younger? Every single summer I worked at a golf course. What’s ironic about this, is that I have never golfed a day in my life. Well, outside of miniature golf, of course. I started working at golf courses my Junior year of high school and worked there through college and even after college a few summers. I loved that my job was never boring. I typically worked at the snack bar and worked my way up to a finance assistant.
I guess maybe one day I should try for that hole in one. 🙂
Because I had to get to my job every summer and didn’t have a car for a few of them, I wish I had had a chance to lease a car for just a few months. One of the benefits of cancel anytime lease is the ability to return it whenever you need to. There is no long-term commitment. (This would also be a great option if you’re traveling this summer or looking to buy a new car but can’t make up your mind.)
What do you think? Would you check into getting a short term lease like this?
