When to rent, when to lease
If you'd like to drive around Europe, you can't bring your own car, and you live outside the European Union, you have two options for obtaining a vehicle: renting or a short-term lease.

Short-term leasing, also called "buy back" or "purchase-repurchase," may be an even better choice if you need a car for 21 days or longer. You get a new Peugeot or Citroën vehicle and turn it in at the end of your trip.
