One of the biggest challenges for missionaries returning to the US on furlough or “home assignment” is getting a hold of a vehicle they can use for the duration of their visit. There are a number of organizations and ministries that seek to help meet this need by providing vehicles for lease to missionaries on furlough.
If you plan to be in the US for a year or longer, you may want to consider purchasing a vehicle. Some of the organizations listed below have the resources to help you find and purchase a vehicle so that your transportation will be all lined up for you by the time you arrive in the US.

Please Note:
While we do our best to keep this listing current and up-to-date, it is possible that some organizations may have closed, discontinued their leasing services, changed their prices, or altered their policies or what they have to offer.  
Please also be aware of the fact that there is a high demand for furlough vehicles and many of the companies that lease out vehicles have a waiting list of several months, so the sooner you can make your plans and reservations the easier it will be to find a vehicle to suit your needs.
