It’s that time of year when you might be planning your 2015 travel. One of the best auto rental deals that we’ve found in Europe is Peugeot’s Open Europe lease-buyback program. If you’re going to be in Europe for an extended stay and you aren’t a resident of the European Union, then they can provide a new automobile, fully insured, with unlimited milage for a very good price. We have taken advantage of Open Europe for years and highly recommend them.
MagoTip from our 2014 travels… Clean up your long-term rental. The diesel Peugeot Partner remains one of the best VFM vehicles in their fleet, but Peugeot has implemented a new rule: “an inspection of the vehicle will be carried out when you return it, so please allow the necessary time. You must return the vehicle in the exact state that it was delivered to you and in an acceptable state of cleanliness. Any vehicle returned dirty (pet hair, sand, mud, stained upholstery, trash left in the vehicle, etc.) will undergo a deep clean charged at €80.” This boils down to finding a car wash a day or two before you return the vehicle in order to avoid a hefty fine.
