French Travel PlannerBuy Back Cars with Peugeot

If you need to rent a car in France or the rest of Europe for more than 21 days, then you should think about a Buy Back car with Auto Europe. The idea is simple, you buy a brand new Peugeot drive it during your vacation and then when you're done you sell the car back.

The Peugeot Buy Back program works essentially like a lease on new car. For a agreed upon length of time a new car is yours. You get to choose the model, in some cases the color, the equipment including the transmission and type of engine fuel (diesel vs. petrol vs. hybrid)

There are cancellation fees within 21 days of pickup as the car is specially ordered for you. The car is delivered to your hotel or closest airport and you sign a promissory note. You can also choose to buy the car at the end of the rental if you wish. The car is registered and insured in your name.

It is extremely cost saving and you also receive a brand new car. Its perfect for extended stays.

There are exemptions to the Peugeot Buy Back program:

How long can a Buy Back be?

  • All Buy Backs must be for a minimum of 21 days.
  • Buy Backs beginning and ending in France may be for no longer than 175 days.
  • Buy Backs beginning and ending outside of France may be for no longer than 165 days.
  • Students, teachers, trainees and missionaries can book a buy back for longer than 175 days.

Who is eligible?

  • You must be a non-European Union resident (European Union citizens living outside the E.U. can take advantage of the Buy Back program).

The benefits of a Peugeot Buy Back include rates that are tax free with non-deductible 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. 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.
