Kiwi traveller numbers soar; accelerating DriveEurope to be the Number 1 European self-driving agent in New Zealand, with 7.5% increase in Kiwis utilising tax free Peugeot & Citroen European leasing programme for self-driving holidays.

Armstrong Motor Group’s new company Peugeot DriveEurope and Citroen DriveEurope has just become the Number 1 European self-driving holiday leasing agent for New Zealand after less than a year in business. General Manager Delwyn Sinclair, who has managed Peugeot’s European car leasing in New Zealand for 25 years, claims that the reason DriveEurope has overtaken its competitors so quickly has been due to their focus on customer service. “While we have great prices, it is not only about price. By providing the best, tailored, around-the-clock customer service to our Kiwi customers, we’ve been able to make their European driving holidays as stress-free as possible both before and during their vacation” she says. 

“More and more of our customers are returning home and recommending us to their friends and family which is such a fantastic feeling knowing that we’ve helped enable them to create such wonderful experiences,” she continues.

European self-driving holidays are also proving to be an increasingly popular choice for Kiwi travellers looking to get off the beaten track. Official French tourist vehicle registration figures have shown an increase of 7.5% in Kiwi travellers using the service as of 31 July 2019 compared to the same time last year. 

“An increasing range of self-catering accommodation options such as AirBnB make a European driving holiday more attractive and even more affordable than ever. Also, the ability to drive our vehicles into 40 countries, including many countries you cannot take rental cars into, and a zero excess insurance policy make it not only an easy choice but also a worry-free experience,” says Sinclair.

Pricing for 2020 is due in mid-October and Sinclair recommends you begin planning now, as 2020 discounted airfares start to be rolled out. “There are some excellent deals to be had on early bird bookings coming up for 2020 so we definitely recommend getting in touch now to be first on the list for the best deals,” she concludes.
