Is there a difference between "car rent" and "car rental"? Will you be so kind to help me tell apart these two collocations - "car rent" and "car rental". Is there a difference? Are there any speacial words which mean "to rent for a long preriod of time" and "to rent for a short period of time"? Thanks for your help)

Hi Irina, I have never really heard "car rent", but I've heard "car rental" (the activity of renting cars), "rental car" (a car which has been rented), or "to rent a car" (the action of renting a car). "Hire" can be used instead of "rent". A "lease" is another form of renting car, usually longer term (3 years), and often through a business/company (as it is tax-deductible, whereas a car purchase isn't).
