Auto Europe Launches Buy Back Program

Auto Europe is offering savings for long-term car rentals, 17 days or longer, with its Buy Back Program featuring over 19 factory new Peugeot models. “For any traveler staying for longer than two weeks in Europe, such as with a villa rental or extended stay, a Buy Back is the most practical way to save on your car rental,”said Eric Ledroux, Auto Europe’s president.

The program includes new vehicle models and equipment that increase fuel savings and enhance the driving experience, Auto Europe says. Features include new automatic gearboxes similar to a Tiptronic automatic transmission that can save 8 percent on fuel versus a full automatic transmission and 4 percent fuel savings versus a manual gear transmission. The gearboxes are also better rated for anti pollution records with lower CO2 emissions, Auto Europe says.

Rates begin at $39 per day. The benefits of a Peugeot Buy Back include rates that are tax free with non-deductible and fully comprehensive insurance, the ability to travel into most former Eastern Bloc countries with no additional fees, unlimited mileage, 24 hour road side assistance and delivery can be arranged at most major airports and cities throughout Europe, according to Auto Europe.

In addition, minimum rental age is 18 with no maximum age limits. The factory new vehicles with zero mileage can be delivered to select cities throughout France, the Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, Italy, Germany, Portugal, the United Kingdom and Switzerland.

Auto Europe is also offering free delivery and collection outside of France on select models for reservations now through December 31 on 45 days or longer contracts that end in 2011.

The sample rate shown is a daily rate based upon a 45-day lease of the four-door, four passenger Peugeot 308 premium, manual transmission for deliveries in Paris. Rate subject to change and additional restrictions may apply.

Auto Europe services over 8,000 car rental locations in 130 countries worldwide. In addition, through their tour division, they offer scheduled airfare to Europe with over thirty carriers and service three-, four- and five-star worldwide hotels.
