From how to rent cars to the rules of the road, learn these tips for driving in Europe before your next trip.

Consider Leasing

1 of 16

If you’re touring Europe for three weeks or more, getting a short-term lease may be a better bet than renting. France’s three main automakers, Peugeot, Renault, and Citroën, all offer “buy-back” programs that give non-EU residents the chance to lease a car for as few as 21 days (17 in the case of Citroën). The rates are more affordable, the mileage is unlimited, and the insurance is comprehensive. Caveat: Book ahead. You will need at least a week to arrange a pickup in Paris, and at least three weeks for delivery elsewhere.
