Leasing a car lets you avoid any unexpected costs by offering a fixed monthly payment for the term of the lease.
Unlike dealer finance or bank loans you only pay for the depreciation of the vehicle over the term rather than the full capital value.
By leasing you substantially reduce your monthly payments, which often mean you can afford a higher specification of vehicle. You can even add an extra charge for maintenance - see our video below - to this monthly bill to spread the cost of servicing.
Rather than pay large deposits you simply pay a small initial amount, usually equivalent to three monthly payments, at the start of the lease.
Then, at the end of the lease period (typically two or three years), you simply hand the car back. The job of selling the car and picking up the tab for depreciation is the responsibility of the lease company.
