Rent a car befor the long term


I am thinking about renting a car for several months in Lugano. The public transport out of the town is outrageous (and I happen to work in Bedano). Also, because the transport to my office is so limited, I am very constrained even to get the buses to Malpensa, or trains somewhere else if I want to go away for a weekend, simply because of that Postbus schedule.

I am really thinking about getting a car, but I do not want to buy one since I will probably stay only 6 months in Switzerland, maybe more, but it is not for sure. So I thought "maybe I can rent a car per several months" (plus a parking lot, since parking in Lugano is virtually impossible).

However, while browsing the internet, I only find regular rent-a-car sites, where they have price per day, making a full month of car around 1.000 GBP. In Madrid I know some places where you can rent a car for a full month by around 500. It is not the cheapest thing, of course, but way more reasonable than 1.000 GBP.

Has anybody tried this at some point or have heard about it? Or maybe finding a car to rent for the long term is as impossible as finding a laundromatic

Quite simple; go and negotiate with a hire car company.
