Leasing a Car on Your Vacation

Get a new, never been smoked in car!

I’m taking a short trip to Italy soon. What’s really frustrating is that I’m not going long enough to take advantage of the French auto leaseback.

Renting a car in Europe is an adventure in tacked-on hidden costs. Paid for no-deductable insurance? Fine, there’s a 35 Euro fee for paperwork if someone runs into you in a parking lot. It’s probably explained somewhere in tiny print, but then there are those other charges…

Like why should it cost 6 Euros a day to put someone else’s name on the contract as a second driver? That’s nuts. Sure, it allows a company to offer a low cost lowball figure to put in big letters on their website. Don’t be sucked in.

Read the fine print. All of it.

Leasing is a much better option. You get a new car, full insurance coverage, and pretty much anyone with a license can drive it.

You don’t have to find a gas station within fifty feet of the return point to fill the thing up at-then worry that if it didn’t quite fill all the way the rental company will charge you their customary arm, leg, and your first child. And it better be a boy. Return your lease car empty as a politician’s noggin. They don’t care.

And nobody’s smoked in the darn thing. Think of it, clean ashtrays. You can keep your autostrada change in them.

Leasing is a great option. Want more info? We have an arrangement with Auto Europe. They lease many of the French cars you see on the road for the short term, meaning from 21 days up to three months, the standard tourist visa duration. Check out their Buy Back Program on the Auto Europe website.

Here’s the list of benefits Renault lists over renting:

Brand New Car
  • Unlimited Miles
  • Free GPS
  • No Hidden Fees
  • Tax-free Program
  • No Age Restrictions
  • Free Additional Drivers
  • Drive in Eastern Europe
  • Zero-deductible Insurance
  • 24/7 Road Side Assistance

Think on that a while. Then make your vacation a long one and don’t sweat the door dings.
