    ¿To hire, to rent o to let?
    To hire y to hire out implican un periodo breve de alquiler y se suelen usar al hablar de coches o trajes. To rent y to rent out implican un periodo más largo y se emplean al tratarse de pisos, habitaciones o casas. To hire y to rent se refieren tanto a la persona que recibe algo en alquiler como al propietario: Voy a alquilar el coche (cliente y propietario). I'm going to hire/rent a car. Sin embargo, to hire out y to rent out se refieren únicamente al propietario: Alquilo coches. I hire/rent out cars.
    To let
    se aplica casi exclusivamente a inmuebles, y el propietario siempre es el sujeto del verbo: El sr. Brown alquila habitaciones. Mr Brown lets/rents out rooms.
