Your Guide To Personal Car Leasing

Vehicle Leasing is becoming more and more popular every day, but why? 

By taking into account the monthly cost of a vehicle via a lease as apposed to the large cash investment needed to purchase a new vehicle outright, motoring is becoming a lot more affordable.

The monthly lease cost takes into account fully the resale value of the vehicle at the end of the lease so that you only pay the cost relating to the fall in value of the vehicle over the lease period. Often higher value more prestige vehicles retain their resale value better and so the lease rate is less than you might think.

As people are becoming more familiar with mobile phone contracts, the need to own a vehicle is becoming less important. Leasing offers a convenient hassle free way to set a monthly cost for your motoring without the need to finance the full value of a new vehicle. So please take a look at some of our great offers and simple guide to see if personal leasing is right for you.

What is Personal Leasing

Leasing is a quick, easy way to get the vehicle you want to drive but without any headache about ownership or needing to sell it when you are ready for a new vehicle. Initially you need to set a mileage and term, think about what is best for you and how this may change over time. The Distance is the total mileage you will do over the period of the agreement in years. Leases will typically cater for up to 5 years and for mileages up to 150,000 in total. The important difference in a lease is that you do not own the car, the finance company does. In this case you simply hand the car back at the end and walk away free to do what you please or lease another new vehicle.
