A simple analogy we have been using is that of the auto industry. Let's assume you are traveling to a new city for a day and need a car. Not a good move to purchase or lease a car since you are not making a long term commitment. The reverse is true, if you need a car for the long term, renting from Avis is not a cost-effective way to gain the use of a car.
