To hire one of these costs £45 (this is the cost for a 3 month rental) this is yours to keep for 3 months. At the end of the 3 month period you have a decision to make. you can bring the instrument back with nothing else to pay or you can keep onto the instrument for a further 3 months.. At this point the balance left to pay on the flute is (assuming it is a cremona flute rrp £179) £179-£45 (£134). To keep the flute for the second rental period it will cost a further £45 so that after 6 months if you want to buy the flute it will cost you just £89 (£179-£45-£45) Makes sense?
