SUV Tax-Free Lease Plan for Americans Traveling in Europe

Reserve in April for free rental upgrade and lease discount on certain models

NEW YORK, April 4 /PRNewswire/ — Europe by Car, a leader for over 50 years in long-term tax-free leasing of Renault and Peugeot-Citroen automobiles for Americans traveling in Europe, is offering discounts – for use any time this year – on vehicle leasing and short-term car rental bookings made in April.

Europe by Car rental customers will receive a free upgrade of one car class on certain models (i.e., compact/medium to mid-size) that are picked up in France at any time from April 1 through the end of the year, if booked by April 28.

The company’s 2006 lease program includes $50 – $200 discounts on certain Renault vehicles – Megane, Laguna, Espace – if reserved by April 14. Peugeot 206 models with air-conditioning are available for as low as $27 per day, based on a 60-day lease.

Europe by Car this year is also introducing sport utility vehicles – the Nissan Pathfinder and Nissan X-TRAIL – in its line-up, as the first company to ever offer tax-free SUVs in a long-term lease plan for Americans traveling in Europe. Early bookers will save $150 on any lease of a Pathfinder or X-TRAIL unit, both of which have GPS and economical diesel engines. With the discount, a 17-day lease of the X-TRAIL (manual transmission) is $1995, and the Pathfinder (automatic transmission) is $2189 for the same duration.

“The Tax-Free Tourist lease program my father pioneered over 50 years ago gives Americans traveling in Europe the peace of mind of driving a brand-new vehicle that is covered by full insurance – with no deductibles or self-pay clauses – for up to six months,” said Europe by Car President Alexander Roy, son of the company founder. “For shorter stays, customers can also count on our experienced staff to get them the best possible rental deals on a variety of cars, minivans and SUVs.”

New York-based Europe by Car Inc. was founded in 1954; it offers the largest selection of new tax-free lease vehicles for Americans traveling in Europe, with personalized pick-up and drop-off service in many countries, including France, Italy, Germany, Spain, and the United Kingdom. Under the lease program, customers receive factory-direct delivery, unlimited mileage, and zero deductibles on collision, theft, third-party liability and fire insurance. Services include 24/7 English-speaking phone support and 24/7 roadside assistance, as well as a full factory warranty that is valid across Europe on leases of up to six months.
