Frequently Asked Questions


Here are the major differences:
A lease (also known as a buy-back or purchase-repurchase) is a brand-new car that includes virtually all insurances, no excess and a guarantee of getting the make & model that you requested. Accident, damage & theft claim procedures are much simpler than with a classical rental. A lease is much more economical for any period over 3 weeks than any rental with equivalent insurance coverage.
A Rental offers used cars whose price merely includes basic insurance with a deductible and a host of optional additional coverage. Procedures of accident, damage and theft claims are more complex than with a lease. Rentals are available for any duration
