Daimler’s brand smart introduces flexible renting with "smart ready to rent." The program uses the full smart model range.

“Ready to rent” closes the gap between short-term rental and longer-term leasing. The rental period for the car can last from one day to three months, according to Daimler.

Vehicles can be reserved via an online booking platform or directly with the dealer. Vehicles are collected and returned directly to the dealership.

The service started in early December with exclusive smart dealers and smart partners in the German cities of Münster, Osnabrück, Essen, Bochum, and Recklinghausen and in selected cities in France.
