Car Leasing Guide

Car leasing in EuropeAbout 30 years ago, the French Government in conjunction with Renault, came up with the enlightened plan to make brand new Renaults available to tourists on a “tax-free” basis.

Tourists coming to France were not paying European taxes so, just like the duty free bottle of scotch, the cars could be sold to the tourists exempt of European taxes, yet only a daily rate for the car would be paid. This amount can be as low as AUD$28 per day for a small car for upto 175 days (maximum period).

Temporary French car leasing suits many types of travellers:

  • Extended stay travellers – 21 days or more (can return the vehicle earlier but no refund applicable)
  • Multiple European country travellers
  • Backpackers – 30 days or more
  • Retired or semi-retired travellers
  • Academics on study leave
  • Ex-pats returning home to visit the family
  • Families or couples, so much easier than carrying luggage on and off trains and public transport.

Am I eligible for this leasing plan?


  • I am an Australian resident and intend returning to my residence outside the European Union
  • I am over 21 years of age (no upper age limit) and
  • I hold a full Australian driver’s licence.


  • I am receiving income from European Union revenue producing activities (includes working holiday visas).

There are simply no pitfalls. You, the traveller in Europe, receive a brand new car from the factory with about four kilometres on the clock. It hasn’t been smoked in nor has someone else’s dog has slept in it – though your dog can of course.

  • It is registered in your name so it has a full comprehensive insurance with NIL excess.
  • You have unlimited kilometres.
  • There are no extra costs.

** Free pick up and return at locations within France.

Once you pay that daily rate, worked out for you by France Apartments & Cars here in Australia there are no extra costs. Ask us. So clean, so new, so easy to drive.

There are now in excess of 60,000 registrations each year of French cars on tourist transit plates from Renault, Peugeot and Citroen. We work with all three, choose your favourite car make and model and ask us for a quote for a temporary French car lease for your holiday in Europe.

Customer Feedback

“We got back from our travels about 10 days ago, and I just wanted to send you a quick email to thank you for all of your help. We had a great time and the car was fantastic. Everything went well, the company was very efficient, and we will be recommending you to our friends if anyone heads over to France. Thanks again, and have a great Christmas from the van Stekelenburg family.” Leased a Peugeot Nov 12

“Overall totally satisfied with the service and lease package. The 308 with its glass sunroof, spaciousness, seat comfort, spacious boot, was faultless – especially the glass sunroof for the European climate. A wonderful driving experience from first contact (with France Apartments and Cars) to final drop off at Bordeaux. We will recommend your service to our friends and colleagues.” Phillip, from Perth leased a Peugeot 2011.
