As Australia's car lease distributor and partner of Peugeot, Renault and Citroen, we are delighted to launch our 2024 European Car Lease program, the most economical solution for your long-term car hires in over 35 European countries.  

If you're travelling around Europe for at least 3 weeks to 6 months, a car lease is your only option. This program offers you a wide range and comfort of brand-new premium cars, either automatic or manual and diesel or petrol.

Our car lease program prices include unlimited kilometers, fully comprehensive insurance with nil excess, free additional drivers and 24/7 roadside assistance among many other benefits.


2024 European Car Lease

The European Car lease is well-established and dominated by French vehicle makers, including CitroenPeugeot and Renault. All vehicles are brand new and left-hand drive with pick-up and drop-off locations in major cities across Europe but not the UK.

Car leasing originates from a French Government incentive scheme to encourage tourism in France. The tax-free buy-back program allows the 3 French car manufacturers to lease out vehicles at discounted rates and receive tax credits. The program has proven very popular and successful, with over 125,000 European visitors taking advantage of it each year.

The way it works is straightforward and like a standard car lease. You lease the vehicle, and the manufacturer guarantees to buy back the vehicle at the end of the leasing period. To lease a car in Europe on this program, you must be a non-European national and reside in a country outside Europe.

Car leasing starts at 21 days through to 175 and offers the flexibility of picking up in one European country and dropping off in another. In addition, all vehicles come with fully comprehensive insurance cover, which removes that nagging worry about excess insurance liability.

All the paperwork is completed and submitted before your departure date. This is to allow enough time for your vehicle to be sourced, registered in France and then delivered to your pick-up location. Therefore, you have peace of mind knowing that everything has been organised before your arrival. We recommend allowing 6-7 weeks prior to departure.

Vehicles can be collected at delivery centres across Europe (no home or hotel delivery service is available) and offer the flexibility of picking up in one country and dropping off in another. This may entail a pick-up/drop-off fee. This is factored into the upfront price. There is no fee in France, which has the most delivery locations.
