Q. Can my friend or relative collect the vehicle for me?
A. No. The vehicle can only be delivered to the registered driver 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 registered driver (contract holder). This proxy form must include the phrase: "I authorise my spouse/partner [insert name] to take delivery of and drive my vehicle." A photocopy of the contract holder's passport is also required.
Q. Can I have additional drivers and is there a fee?
A. Yes you are able to have additional drivers and there is no additional fee, however there are strict restrictions as follows.
Q. What happens if my vehicle is stolen or I have an accident?
A. Detailed information is available in the Peugeot Assistance (Emergency) Guide which is supplied in your vehicle as well as listed here, however it is relatively simple. You need to follow the same procedure as you would at home. Contact the police and fill out an accident report form. You must contact the Peugeot Customer Assistance team as soon as possible and follow their instructions. Keep any documents relating to the accident and fax the document to Peugeot Assistance. In the event of your vehicle being stolen once you have notified Peugeot, the promissory note amount will not be invoked.
Q. If I have to return earlier for any reason, can I do this, and am I entitled to a refund?
A. Yes, please make sure you contact the Peugeot Representative at least 4 working days before the expiration of the contract to organise the return. Please Note: There are no refunds for early return of your vehicle. We strongly suggest you purchase suitable travel insurance prior to departing your country of origin.
Q. Can I get winter tyres fitted on my Peugeot vehicle?
A. No, all Peugeot vehicles are fitted with standard tyres prior to leaving the Peugeot Sodexa factory. Standard tyres are not suitable for all winter conditions and during certain periods of the year. In some countries it is a requirement by law that all vehicles are equipped with winter tyres between November and March. Peugeot Open Europe does not lease or sell snow ‘winter’ tyres. 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.
Q. Do Peugeot Sodexa offer Tow Bars as an accessory or allow them to be fitted?
A. This is possible, however rules and restrictions apply. For further terms, please enquire.
Q. If I take my vehicle on a ferry will I be covered by insurance?
A. Yes. You are covered by full comprehensive insurance` and are covered in both the UK and Ireland. Ferry crossing fees are not included in the costs; these will need to be prepaid. Let us know if you are interested in this as we can help.
