    Maybe correct, for annual rentals, or when accompanied with hotel stay at an exorbitant surcharge.

    For 2 weeks, a realistic rate would be more like 5k per day.

      I think that's what you'd pay when you rent from one of the international chains like Avis, etc. If you go for a local company, 4k per day should be doable.

              Although there are lots of car rental companies in Pakistan but they are nothing like how car rental companies work in other countries. I had to rent a car in Multan for a day's trip there. It was my first time renting a car so was nervous. I booked a car 1 week in advance, then reminded the car rental company 3 days ahead of pickup time, then 1 day ahead of pickup time, then 5 hours ahead of pickup time, and finally when I called the rental company at the pick up time, they told me they have no car. That is how unprofessional they are !

              Then the car rental company connected me to another guy who arranged a car and a driver for me. I took pictures of the fuel needle along with the odometer. Those pictures helped me a lot later. The driver seemed professional at first but that was an illusion. As soon as he realized we were not aware of the area, he started showing his true colors. All meant to increase the agreed upon rent. I had to increase the agreed upon rent. His dirty jokes and fake anger ruined my mood. In the end he wanted even more money to top up the fuel beyond the agreed upon level. In as few as 10 hours that day, I learned how nothing is like how it is advertised in Pakistan.

              On a more recent trip, I checked with another car rental company near the place where I was staying to rent a car without driver. They asked me for so many things, such as visiting my relatives to confirm their addresses and all.
