One good thing about their long-term rentals is that whenever you decide to cancel the contact, they do not penalise you and the monthly payment is stopped immediately. The single monthly payment you make covers maintenance, rental and protection against potential costs as in the case of an accident or theft of the vehicle. Along the months, you can opt to downgrade or upgrade to a new contract and this is simply enabled through cancellation of the old contact and signing a fresh one.
