Challenging Perceptions With Mini-lease

Mini-lease: Surprisingly Cost-Effective Flexibility and commitment are old adversaries; commitment equals structure, predictability, dependability and lower cost. Flexibility, well it means you can change your mind regularly, don’t have to be loyal and you’ll have more experiences … but at a higher cost.

Mini-Leases: A New Approach To Short Term Lease Cars

Flexible vehicle rental with Mini-Lease CLM is currently witnessing a surge of corporate interest in its Mini-Lease offerings, with bookings for the flexible, short-to-medium term rental product showing significant growth.
