Black Friday: Best car leasing deal tips, advice and offers
Sale events like Black Friday and Cyber Monday have captured the public imagination over recent years.
But let’s consider a fact: Which? claim that Black Friday is all hype, and out of 83 products the organisation tracked last year just four were cheaper than at other times in the year. So marketing events for big ticket items like cars, might not be all they’re cracked up to be either.
You may or may not know that just before a number plate change is one of the ideal times for you to find a cracking offer, or when dealers are looking to hit their end-of-quarter performance bonuses. Plus there will always be stock vehicles that manufacturers will discount so they can be sold before the end of a financial period. But the real key to finding a good deal is proper research and comparing prices across the market.
By doing your research and shopping around you’ll be far better equipped to find the best car leasing deals ANY time of year – check out our handy guides on how to pick the right car for you for more tips.
