How Does Car Leasing Work?

Leasing Man

More and more people each year are opening their eyes to leasing, allowing them to drive a new car without a huge upfront cost. 

We understand that car leasing can seem confusing, so we want to try and help answer any queries you might have to ensure you understand why leasing is such a good deal, so let's start with the basic pro's and con's!


  • Enjoy a new car every few years
    Leasing a car allows you to use a brand new car without the up front costs. You can lease a car for two, three or four years, allowing you to change vehicle without worring about depreciation and selling your vehicle.
  • Maintenance costs can be included  
     Want to include servicing and tyres along with other benfits into your monthly rental? Leasing with maintenance is a  hassle free way to pay for services and tyres.
  • More Car for your money
    Why make payments on buying a standard specification car when you could lease a high spec car for less? Typically purchasing a vehicle through alternative financing schemes is more expensive than leasing a car.


  • Your monthly cost is based on mileage
    One of the things that has a large effect on how much you pay on a monthly basis is the mileage. It's important that you work out what you'll be using your car for so you can select the correct mileage. If you think that you'll end up going over the maximum mileage you have set, get in contact straight away as it's possible to extend your mileage for a cost. By letting us know, you can ensure your new monthly fee covers the extra mileage.
  • You don't own the car
    In simple, car leasing is a way a person can have full access to a vehicle without actually owning it. It's very similar to renting a car, but instead of only having it for a couple of weeks or a month, a standard car lease will last anywhere between two to four years.
  • You must return the car in good condition
    The value of the car is based on its condition, so you must return it in a condition commensurate with its age and mileage or there may be additional fees you will not be charged for anything considered not to be fair wear and tear.

How does leasing a car compare to buying a car?
