What does it mean to Rent Textbooks?
Renting textbooks means you pay a fee to use a textbook for a certain date range. Generally this date range is a semester or year long. However, some sites allow customized rental date ranges. Textbook rentals tend to be much cheaper than buying a textbook.
We take your savings a step further by price comparing dozens of textbook rental sites. The TextbookRentals.com price comparison searches dozens of stores and displays them in an easy to read table listing the cheapest prices first. We show 3 different textbook rental date ranges. They are semester long (120+ days), quarter long (90 to 119 days) and session long (less than 90 days).
We also display new & used textbook prices right below the rental prices, because sometimes you can actually purchase used textbooks cheaper than renting them. This can be a win/win, since you can usually sell them back at the end of the semester. So always double check the used prices we show, just in case!
