I just went to get it from the company, the new car has only 2km, if rented, the price is 1.6 million VND per day. Since it’s a brand new car, the price must be as high as a holiday”, this person shared.

The owner of this establishment has more than 40 cars for rent, all of which have been booked and handed over before the official holiday.

With 40 rental cars, it is estimated that this holiday will earn nearly 200 million VND, but it is not happy because the “sold out” of the holiday also makes self-driving car hirers face a lot of difficulties.

“I don’t like holidays, I’d rather have guests every weekday. Dozens of my cars had to stay at home for 3-4 days before the ceremony. Received a car reservation for a customer, if you rent it to someone else, they will have a job, it is not possible to have a car to hand over to the customer on holidays. So dozens of cars lay dormant for days, losing income for those days. Moreover, such a large number of car hirers also makes it more difficult for the owners to control. This establishment owner explains.

According to research, if customers have a need to rent a car during the holidays, many of these service providers have offered full 4-day rental packages with more favorable prices, ranging from VND 800,000 to VND 800,000. 1.5 million VND for each vehicle. Tenants who rent a few days, or do not have all 4 holidays, will have to pay a higher price even though they have paid a deposit a whole month in advance.

“Customers only rent for 2 or 3 days, the rest of the days no one rents those cars. So we have to charge a higher price to make up for this. If guests rent a package, the price will be much cheaper”this person said.

The majority of establishments surveyed by VTC News confirmed that the price of self-driving car rental on holidays has not changed much compared to weekdays. However, customers who want to rent must book very early and do not have many car models to choose from.
