Over the recent years, car leasing has become a popular alternative to buying a new car in the UK, with many people now enjoying the numerous benefits that leasing offers.
What is car leasing?
Car leasing is a financial agreement which allows individuals and businesses alike to drive a brand new vehicle from a vehicle supplier company for a fixed length of time at an agreed monthly cost.
Depending on your requirements and the type of leasing agreement you enter, at the end of the agreed time period you can either part exchange the car for another one or hand the car back.
Why lease a car?
New and reliable vehicles – If you cannot afford the cost of a brand new vehicle, buying an older one can mean a higher chance of it breaking down and maintenance costs. Car leasing makes driving a modern, new, and reliable vehicle an affordable option.
Comforts of a modern car – When you choose to lease a brand new car you can enjoy all the latest in-car technology, improving the comfort of both driver and passengers.
Avoid the cost of depreciation – The cost of depreciation on a new car is often a huge expense that is overlooked by many. When you buy a brand new car outright, on average, you will find that it loses 50-60% of its value over the first few years that you own it. This means that when you come to sell that car, it will have lost a lot of its value. Leasing a new vehicle means you get to drive the new car, without the expense of the vehicle’s depreciation.
Affordable, fixed, monthly cost – When you lease a car you get to keep your savings, and instead agree an affordable, fixed monthly cost to pay for leasing the vehicle, providing you with better financial security.
Steps to lease a car
Step 1 - Select Your Car
Select your new car with our simple search or use detailed search if you have leasing options. Configure your car with the extras to meet your needs.
One of the key benefits of leasing a vehicle is that the costs are far more consistent and affordable than they would be if you bought your own vehicle outright or on finance.
Your leasing agreement will include a small advance rental payment which will be calculated and agreed at the start of your lease. The amount that you pay up-front will impact the cost of your monthly rental payments.
Your monthly payments will then include the cost of:
Financing the vehicle
Registering the vehicle
Vehicle Excise Duty
A full manufacturer’s warranty
Other associated costs include the servicing and maintenance of the vehicle and breakdown cover, which you may be required to arrange and pay for yourself separately.
Alternatively, to keep your monthly vehicle expenses predictable, it can be a good idea to add a maintenance and service package to your lease agreement.

What happens when a car lease ends?
What happens at the end of your lease depends on your requirements and the options offered by the leasing company.
Some of the options that you may be able to choose from include:
Take another lease out on the same car.
Take out a new lease on a new car.
Hand the car back.
Providing that you have stuck to the mileage agreed in the terms of your lease, there will be nothing further to pay when you return the car and the leasing company will usually arrange to pick the vehicle up from your address.
You are free to move to a new car lease of your choice rather than being limited to whatever the dealer has on a PCP.
