    To Lease or Not to Lease? That Is the Question.

    Australia's fascination with Europe dates back to the country's foundation. During this time European nations, particularly the United Kingdom, unleashed their convicts into their newest land acquisition. As Australia developed into a civilised nation, rather than a penal colony, Europeans from Italy, Greece, France and many others immigrated. This influx in population further strengthened the deep ties between the two continents. Australians continue to be enamoured with the notion of travel to these faraway lands, and long to explore the wide variety of cultures and experiences that await. The destination options in Europe are seemingly endless, which make the use of a car an ideal method of transport in this region. Dance the flamenco in Seville, indulge in Camembert and chocolate in Paris or ride along the canals in Amsterdam. Whatever you're after, hiring a car or leasing a Peugeot through Auto Europe Australia will give you the freedom to see and do as much- or as little- as you like on your next holiday in Europe.

    Is a leasing the best option for my holiday?

    If you are travelling to Europe for an extended period of 21 days or more the Peugeot Open Europe program offers a flexible way to see your desired destinations in the luxury of a brand new, tax free Peugeot. With no young driver surcharge, a nil excess, full comprehensive insurance and 24 hour assistance, the inclusive package you receive with a Peugeot lease will have you cruising around the vast European countryside worry free. With complimentary collections in France and pre-paid collection fees available in other major European cities, you can rest easy knowing you have everything covered.

    Who else wants a brand new car for their holiday?

    Peugeot Open Europe has an extensive collection of brand new cars available for lease. Zoom around the German autobahns in the small but mighty Peugeot 208, or bring the kids along with the Peugeot 3008, which offers maximum boot capacity. Alternatively, the Peugeot 308 provides both comfort and space, ideal for 2-3 passengers with luggage. Feel like a local driving down the Circuit de Monaco in a Peugeot RCZ sports car, or take the family to new heights in a Peugeot 5008 which has room for 2 large, 4 medium and 3 small suitcases. Auto Europe Australia offers a wide variety of brand new Peugeot models for lease in Europe. Our Peugeot specialists are determined to find you the perfect car. Call us on 1300 656 601 today to select the perfect luxury Peugeot for your next extended holiday in Europe. As Emile Ganest once said, 'A tourist is a fellow who drives thousands of miles so he can be photographed standing in front of his car'.

    Is car hire the best option for me?

    Choosing the best hire car to fit all your needs can be tricky. Many car sizes, categories and specifications exist. The ACRISS coding system is used by car hire suppliers internationally to ensure easy identification of a particular car. This method utilises a 4 letter coding system to identify different features of each vehicle. Common coding include CDMR (Compact - 4 Door - Manual - Air Conditioning), CDAR (Compact - 4 Door -Automatic - Air Conditioning). Car sizes Economy (E), Intermediate (I), Standard (S) and Full Size (F) can be identified by their respective code.

    Each supplier offers different equipment options which are paid for when you pick up your car. These options include GPS units, child seats, booster/infant seats, snow chains and ski racks. Upon booking a car hire, Auto Europe Australia will provide a voucher including all possible equipment options.

    That tricky thing called insurance.

    A common concern for clients is insurance. Each supplier has a different policy on insurance inclusions and exclusions, so it is important to be familiar with the terms and conditions of your car hire reservation. All Auto Europe Australia rates include basic insurance such as Collision Damage Waiver (CDW), Third Party Liability and Theft Protection (TP). These insurance policies cover you up to a certain amount, but suppliers often require an excess amount. This amount is dependent on your car and supplier. For additional peace of mind, Auto Europe Australia offers Excess Refund Insurance. For less than the cost of a Parisian crepe (from $9.90/day) Auto Europe will cover up to $5,000AUD.
