LEARN MORE

To meet European regulations, the classification of holding devices is established by way of groups. Each group is limited by weights, which are completed by the corresponding approximate ages. However, it should be noted that the weight of the child is the decisive factor when making your selection.

We offer a choice of child seats, dependent on the weight/age of the child.
Please remember, you are buying the seat – so it is yours to keep at the end of the lease.

If you are considering taking your own child seat/s, please compare to the below information and links as your seat/s should meet European regulations.

ROOF BARS

The pair of transverse roof bars will be fitted to your vehicle. These come without straps/ties and without covered protection. The maximum carry load on all vehicles is 50kgs.

Please ensure your load does not exceed this limit as any damage to the vehicle due to misuse will be charged to you.
It is the driver’s responsibility to obey the laws of the country they’re travelling in.

FIRST TANK OF FUEL

Unlike a rental car, your DS will be delivered with only 10-15 litres of fuel. This means that a fuel station should be your first stop.

Particularly if you are collecting your vehicle late at night, we recommend you pre-purchase a full tank of fuel when you place your booking request with us.

Please keep in mind that the price we charge is higher than what you would pay at a fuel station directly, as Car-2-Europe DS must include a fee to cover labour and administration costs in France.

SNOW CHAINS & WINTER DRIVING (NOV > APR)

Snow Chains can no longer be purchased through DS – you must buy these locally in Europe, however, they are not suitable for highway driving. In the mountain areas, most of the large supermarkets have auto-parts departments, as well as gas stations or auto-parts shops. For example, in France: Norauto, Leclerc Auto, Carrefour Auto. To be sure of the exact fitting, you can also order snow chains from a DS dealer.

If you are travelling during the winter months (Nov-Apr) it is your responsibility to ensure you have the appropriate tyres fitted to your vehicle, as may be required by law in each country. Click here for a link to the AA’s UK website for more information.

All of our vehicles are fitted with assembly-line 'multi-purpose' tyres. These tyres are suitable for varied driving conditions, excluding extreme conditions such as the presence of snow or ice. From November to March, or outside these dates if the weather and road conditions require, you may need a vehicle with winter tyres depending on where you plan to drive.

WINTER TYRES

Winter tyres are a mandatory requirement by law in Austria, Germany & Switzerland from 15 November until 15 April. This also applies if you are driving a car through/in these countries, which you've collected in another country.

Car-2-Europe DS does not lease or sell ‘winter tyres’. If the client wishes to have winter tyres, it’s the client’s responsibility to purchase them whilst overseas and have them fitted and removed at an authorised DS dealer. The vehicle needs to be returned with the original tyres fitted. Mud & Snow Tyres with Grip Control, which meet the legal restrictions in Germany, Switzerland and Austria can be requested on certain vehicles; contact your local automobile association for most recent information.

TOW BARS

We are unable to arrange the fitting of a tow bar. Therefore, we have very limited knowledge and information on the intricacies of tow bars and anything associated with them. We do however allow tow bars to be fitted at a Citroën/DS garage whilst you are in Europe, with the following conditions.

You must organise it yourself and pay locally (note: they can take some time to organise and install and there can be delays with regard to the availability of parts, so you should be prepared for this). We recommend you start speaking with a garage at least 4 weeks prior to collection. Your car insurance policy does NOT include cover for your trailer. You must arrange your own insurance for the trailer.
