In the U.S. you can also 'lease' a car, wherein you have use of the car for a fixed term (36 - 60 months typically) and make monthly payments. I'd be curious to know if the same expression is used in the U.K. or Australia (or if this arrangement even exists there). In the U.S. if you rent a car, it's for a few days or a week, like on a vacation.

For Spanish, I think that 'alquilar' is standard Spanish, and 'rentar' is Spanglish. I see lots of signs advertising "basement para renta" around here.
