Are you planning a trip to Europe for summer ? You need to rent a car ? Think Renault USA, Peugeot Open Europe or Citroën Europass !
Renault, as Peugeot and Citroën, have special programs which allow US and Canadian citizens to rent a French car in Europe. You will ask me what are the differences with Europcar, Avis, Hertz, Alamo... :
- A tax-free solution
- You are sure to get the car you want
- You will drive a car that you can not drive in the USA or Canada (at least for now...)
- You will get the best price if you make a European road trip or a long distance journey
- You will be able to drive the car all over Europe. All the other rental companies have restrictions. For instance, a car rented in the UK from a big rental company will have restrictions to be driven in Poland or in the Czech Republic. Furthermore, the regular rental companies will charge you for extra mileage.
- About the assistance, it is also good to know that Peugeot, Citroën and Renault have offices and maintenance representations in all European countries.
The selection between the French Big Three will be made by the car you prefer to drive... So are you more DS5 ? Renault Megane R.S. 275R ? or maybe Peugeot RCZ R ? Why not try the new trendy Citroën C4 Cactus ?

Citroën Europass is an all-inclusive, 19.6% of tax-free purchase and repurchase program for new vehicles aimed at people living outside the European Union (or in French Overseas Departments and Territories) staying in Europe for between 21 days and 6 months.
Your new car awaits you at the center of your choice across Europe. You get to organize your stay as desired and get to the road in complete freedom.
The travel guidebook, Lonely Planet® recommends : If you'll need a car in Europe for 21 days to six months (one year if you're studying or teaching in France), by far your cheapest option is to 'purchase' a brand-new one from Citroën, then at the end of your trip, 'sell' it back to them. In reality, you pay only for the number of days you use the vehicle. Prices include unlimited kilometres, 24-hour towing and breakdown service, and comprehensive insurance with – incredibly – no excess (deductible), so returning a damaged car is totally hassle-free.
