Renault Eurodrive : the Secret Savvy Travelers to Europe Want to Keep Away from You!
Renault, the leading European car manufacturer, expands its Eurodrive program for 2011.
This program is so unique that it becomes addictive, says Guy Geslin, the former Vice President of Renault in America and now President of Wheels in Europe, the exclusive distributor of the program in the USA. Once you have tasted it, then there is no going back. Some of our clients have now leased more than 20or even 30 cars with us over time. They just would not settle for less.
With 44 car models to choose from this year, from small city cars to family oriented sedans and minivans, or stylish and sporty Coupes to outright fun convertibles, there is really a Renault for everyone adds Bernard Frelat, the Chairman of Wheels in Europe.
Pricing of Eurodrive is one of the great benefits of the program as it is all inclusive. The price you are quoted includes everything (all drivers, unlimited mileage, full insurance, new car warranty, road assistance service) and it is the price you pay. No surprises at the counter when arriving in Europe to pick up the car.
Pricing structure is also intended to encourage long stays. There is a first pricing level which applies to the first 21 days of the contract and then the price drops dramatically for the additional days. For example, a Twingo (smaller car of the line up) will cost $39.00 per day for a month lease ($949.00 for the first 21 days, and only $22.00 per additional day). Similarly, the Sandero, a model made by Dacia, a Romanian manufacturer bought by Renault in 1999 and now the faster growing car manufacturer in Europe, which can accommodate in a no frills but still comfortable environment, 4 passengers and their luggage, would be $49.00 a day. The Renault Megane, while a lot more sophisticated, and able to carry 5 people and their luggage, comes to only $57.00 a day.
Most popular cars this year are the newly introduced “WIND”, a small hard top Coupe that converts into a true Roadster in less than 12 seconds and starts at only $1,199 for 3 weeks; the Duster, a Dacia made SUV which starts at $1,549 for 3 weeks and the Latitude, a new large true luxury three volume sedan that is available for $2,499.00 for 21 days and then $34 per additional day.
Only drawback of the program, and this is why the privileged few who enjoy it years after years do not want you to know about it, is that Renault allocates every year only a limited number of cars to this short term leasing formula.
The program tends to sell out quickly and an early reservation is therefore the only way to beat this savvy crowd. All models can be seen at the company website www.renaultusa.com and it takes only a few seconds to get a quote for one or more cars. From there you are one more click away to complete a reservation and offer yourself one of the best bargains in travel.
