What is leasing? / Leasing explained

Leasing is a long-term rental agreement offering the exclusive use of a car or van for a set period of time at a fixed monthly price. It offers an alternative, and often cheaper, funding solution to buying a new car or van with a bank loan or dealer finance.

Car leasing helps you avoid any unexpected costs by offering a fixed monthly rental for the term of the lease. The customer also doesn’t have to worry about depreciation or selling the car as this job falls to the lease company.

How Leasing Works

At the start of a leasing contract, the customer pays an initial rental usually equivalent to three monthly rentals.

The customer then makes monthly rentals for the duration of the contract term. At the end of the lease contract (typically two, three years or four years), the customer simply hands the car back without any further obligations, or may choose to purchase the vehicle depending on the type of contract taken.

If there is any end of contract repair work required or you have exceeded your agreed mileage charges will apply

With a leasing contract, you also have the opportunity to drive a new car every two, three or four years and all of the vehicles include the standard manufacturer’s warranty?
