The short-term car hire market is fragmented so we want to make finding the right car easy for you. We partner with approved vehicle subscription companies to bring you the best, in-stock DS cars so you can always find one that's available.
We want to give our users access to every subscription car available today, so they can find the best one for them. Use our car search tool to narrow down your search.
Remember, our car inventory depends on UK providers, so the range of cars you’ll see depends on what subscription vehicles they currently have in stock.
It’s time to find your next car! Here’s what you need to do:
Unlike leasing and other types of car finance, subscription services include all costs related to car ownership, including:

DS currently has several electrified models on sale, including the electric DS 3 Crossback E-Tense. DS also plans to launch two new electric models based on the Stellantis platforms eCMP and STLA Medium by 2024.
Yes, DS Automobiles has a range of plug-in hybrid cars that combine an electric motor with a petrol engine. Some of the models available include DS 7 E-Tense, DS 9 E-Tense and DS 4 E-Tense.
DS cars are generally safe and reliable, according to my web search. Most of them have received a full five-star rating from Euro NCAP, which is an independent organisation that evaluates car safety. All DS cars come with standard safety features such as airbags, electronic stability control and ISOFIX child-seat mounts. Some models also offer advanced features such as adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist and blind spot monitoring.
Some possible alternatives to DS Automobiles are Volvo, Audi and Lexus. In particular the Volvo XC 40 and V90, or the Audi A3 and Q5.
To choose the right DS, you need to consider your needs, preferences and budget. Some questions you can ask yourself are: What car size do you need? Do you need a lot of space for passengers or cargo? What features do you want? Do you value performance, efficiency or comfort?
With a car subscription service, you can drive a DS without owning or leasing it. You pay a monthly fee that covers insurance, maintenance, taxes and other costs. You can also switch cars or cancel anytime. This type of subscription is flexible and convenient for people who don’t want to commit to a long-term contract or deal with administrative hassles.

DS Automobiles was founded in 1955 by French racing driver Jean-Albert Grégoire. His aim was to develop a range of sports cars that were not only fast and powerful but also luxurious and comfortable. The first car, the DS19, was unveiled at the 1955 Paris Motor Show. It had a fabric roof, leather seats and air conditioning as standard equipment.
The DS19 proved very popular with buyers in the UK and other European countries. By 1960, more than 12,000 units had been sold worldwide. Unfortunately for Grégoire, he experienced financial difficulties during this time and had to sell his company to Citroën in 1958.
In 1968 Citroën launched its own version of the DS19 – called the DS21 – which incorporated subtle styling changes from its predecessors such as wider headlights and an extended rear end with fins across both sides of the boot lid. However, it wasn’t until 1974 when the model received a major redesign that it became known as simply “The Citroën DS” (in English). This new version came with improved suspension and brakes plus new options such as airbags.
