Auto Europe, one of the industry’s first global car rental service companies, has enhanced its Peugeot Open Road program with even more flexible options for the 2016 travel season.

Travelers planning to visit some of Europe’s largest cities for 15 days or more will now have the option of participating in the Peugeot Open Europe program. Through this program, Peugeot agrees to buy-back vehicles once travel is completed.

This affordable program provides travelers the unique opportunity to drive a factory-new vehicle in Europe at a daily rate often lower than a traditional car rental. A starting rate with this program can be as low as $20 per day.

This buy-back program, which is similar to a lease, provides drivers peace-of-mind knowing they are behind the wheel of a safe new vehicle, with 24/7 roadside assistance and zero-deductible, fully comprehensive insurance.

Added benefits of these options include unlimited mileage, no European value-added taxes & airport charges and availability to drivers as young as 18. A GPS unit, as an in-vehicle option or as a portable unit, is also included in every agreement.

New for 2016 are:

* Shorter duration requirements – now only 15 days

* New vehicle models – including the Peugeot 4008 cross-over

* Flexible payment options – such as deposit only to reserve

* Additional discounts – on select makes and durations

* Expanded availability in peak travel months – including vehicles with automatic transmissions

“Many of our customers are traveling to Europe for extended stays and looking for more options of economical transportation during their visit,” said Scott Braun, Auto Europe’s Chief Marketing Officer. “This program allows us to offer our customers quality vehicles with added incentives to make long-term rentals more affordable. For example, one new discount this year is 3 Free Days on rentals of 21 days or longer.”

Reservations for the summer season can now be secured with only a deposit.
