Can a Swiss resident rent through French car company sell and buyback lease?

We need to rent a car for a few months and are considering doing the Renault Eurodrive program...it says in the fine print however that you must be a "tourist", however it seems from different forums that people residing in Switzerland have used this as an option for long term car rentals...does anyone have experience using one of the french car company short term sell and buyback lease programs? thx in advance.

Are you resident outside the European Union or in the French overseas departments and territories? Do you travel in Europe between 21 days and 6 months?
Should be no problem there.

I myself would just buy a 2nd handed car and sell it afterwards.

Thanks...but we actually reside in Switzerland, we are not tourists per se who will leave, just in need of a long term rental til we figure out carwise what we want to do....so meet the non EU requirement, but not "tourists"...I was just wondering if/how people who have used this got around it or if they did as it has been mentioned in forums....we have a 2nd hand car that is breaking down, so that option we do not wish to do again!

You have to read all terms and conditions about what can be done and what is not allowed.

If you intend to use this car in Switzerland for longer than 5 to 8 days you must properly import it. Means you will have to pay import tax and duty. Then 1 month later you must insure it here in Switzerland and put it on Swiss plates. After the end of the deal when you wish to return it you will have to export it to France and might pay import tax and duty again. And presumably put it back on French plates. During this time the French insurance might not be put on hold.

Worth it?
