    No problem. For example:
    You can say: Я взял напрокат автомобиль;
    Я возьму напрокат самолет и улечу на острова.
    Word "напрокат" usually in sentenses where it comes to renting a vehicle.
    But if you talking about the house or room, better to use the word "арендовать".
    For example:
    Я арендовал квартиру в прошлом месяце.
    Я арендовал комнату в Москве.
    But also you can say:
    Я арендовала машину и поехала к бабушке на выходные.
    In Russia, if it comes to renting a room or houses we usually use the word "снять". For example:
    Мой друг СНЯЛ КВАРТИРУ и сейчас живет там. - this phrase a typical for us (native speaker).
    Она живет в доме, который сняла два месяца назад.
    Я живу в съемной квартире. - CЪЁМНАЯ КВАРТИРА - it means "flat for rent".
