A 6 month car lease is not a commonly used option, but it may be ideal for some depending on their situation. So, when should you consider a six month car lease?

Typically the best time to consider a 6-month-long car lease is when you find yourself in a situation that is most likely temporary. School, traveling or living out of town for work, a temporary financial situation, a temporary job, military deployment, or other special considerations are the best times to consider a 6-month-long car lease.

Some people may sign a 6-month lease for a car with the intention of buying it, but they first want to make sure that the vehicle is exactly what they are looking for. This short term car lease provides them with the opportunity to essentially test drive the car with no obligation for a relatively long period of time.

Leasing a car for 6-months may not be the best option, in fact renting may be a better option for your current situation depending on the cost and how much you are required to travel.

Short-term leases work a bit differently than longer ones. Short-term leasers are generally lease-takeovers, or lease-assumers, taking over a lease from another when they are through with the car, taking over the payments for the remaining portion of the lease.

6-month leases may be ideal for you, or not. It is important to remember they work differently than longer leases, but if you find yourself in a temporary situation it may be something you should look into.
