Financial leasing

Do you drive a lease car with a financial lease contract? Then you can travel to your holiday destination without any worries. With a financial lease you are the economic owner of the car, because the car is registered in your name. This means that you are free in what you do with the car and where you go. Thanks to financial leasing, you have no mileage limitations, unlike other types of leasing. You also do not have to request a declaration to take your car abroad.

Holiday checklist

If you have chosen to go on holiday with your lease car, it is wise to take a number of important things into account.

  1. Check your insurance: Make sure that your car insurance is also valid abroad. Check with your insurance company to make sure you have the right coverage for the country you are traveling to.
  2. Registration certificate and other documents: Always take your registration certificate, insurance papers and other relevant documents with you when traveling abroad with the lease car. Also check whether you need an international driver's license depending on the country you are visiting.
  3. Vignettes and toll roads: Some countries require specific vignettes or toll cards to use certain roads or highways. Find out in advance whether you need such documents and purchase them if necessary.
  4. Maintenance and roadside assistance: Make sure the car is in good condition before you leave. Check tire pressure, fluid levels and any other maintenance issues. If you have roadside assistance through the leasing company or an external service, check whether this is also valid abroad.
  5. Traffic Rules and Regulations: Please be aware of the traffic rules and regulations of the country you are traveling to. Speed limits, parking rules and other traffic regulations may vary from country to country.

It is always wise to prepare well before traveling abroad with a lease car. Consult the specific guidelines and requirements of the leasing company and inform yourself about the laws and regulations of the country of destination.

Bon voyage!
