They may drive locally without the registered driver but under no circumstances can the family member take the vehicle across any borders or for lengthy periods without the registered driver in the car.

Peugeot now recognises a Partner as an eligible driver of the vehicle!!!!!
The spouse and direct descendants and ascendants of the contract holder can also drive the car provided that they also satisfy the conditions required by the TT system. The term ‘spouse’ is understood in the broadest sense and may apply to a cohabiting partner or civil partner, provided that proof of this relation is provided.

Note also that the Spouse or Partner of the Contracted Driver can now collect the vehicle on the driver’s behalf so long as prior approval and a form has been completed.

The vehicle can be delivered only to the holder of the PEUGEOT OPEN EUROPE contract or to his/her spouse or partner. In this second case, the spouse or partner must show the original (and not a photocopy) of a proxy form completed and signed in their name by the contract holder. This proxy form must include the phrase: “I authorise my spouse/partner …. to take delivery of and drive my vehicle”. A photocopy of the contract holder’s passport is also required.

Cost of Fuel in Europe:

Check the latest fuel price report.


All vehicles are supplied with 10-15 litres of fuel free of charge. You are not required to return the vehicle with a full tank of fuel.

Optional Accessories:

Optional accessories such as a child seat, ski racks, snow chains and roof bars are available at an additional cost and must be pre-booked and prepaid in Australian Dollars prior to departing Australia.


All vehicles are fitted with standard tyres prior to leaving the Peugeot Sodexa factory. Standard tyres are not suitable for all weather conditions. It is the client's responsibility to purchase the appropriate winter tyres whilst overseas and have them fitted and removed at an authorised Peugeot dealer.

Between November to March it is compulsory to fit winter tyres in some European countries. Clients should check this requirement for the countries they are intending to visit. For safety reasons, it is the responsibility of the contract holder to ensure that their car suits the road, weather conditions and the legal requirements for road safety throughout the countries where the car will be driven during the term of the contract.

Snow Chains can no longer be purchased through Peugeot - you must buy these locally in Europe.
