Best ‘low deposit’ car lease deals available right now (under £350 per month)
Car finance usually requires some form of large upfront payment. Let’s get one thing straight: rather than a ‘deposit’, when it comes to leasing you always pay an initial rental fee. This is made up of a number of your monthly payments.
You’ve always had the flexibility to choose how many months you pay up front, but more recently lease deals have started to be offered with a single one-month up front payment.
Now paying less up front might mean that your monthly payments are marginally higher than if you’d chosen to pay a larger amount up front, but there are still plenty of vehicles on offer for less than £350 per month that require a low deposit.
To keep things clear, we’ve allowed ourselves a sensible budget of up to £350 per month, and that one-month initial payment excludes any additional document fees. Without further ado, here’s our top pickings…
