Understanding car leasing

Whether it’s your first-time car leasing or you’ve leased before, understanding how car leasing works can help you secure your ideal car for less. Leasing is like hiring, only you get a brand-new car for a longer period. You don’t own the car, you just hand it back at the end of the contract and swap it for another brand-new set of wheels. It’s simple, more affordable than you think, and often a lot cheaper than buying.

People love us because we keep it simple is simple in design and for me offers the filters I need to prevent me wasting my time. It also covers a lot of the brokers so it's near enough a one stop shop.

Choosing your car leasing plan

One of the great things about how car leasing works is that it’s extremely flexible. You decide the length of your lease contract, how many miles you want to be able to drive each year and the size of your initial payment. If you don’t want to pay much upfront, you don’t have to. You’re in the driving seat. If you follow our car leasing advice, you could also find yourself a bargain.
