How Does Car Leasing Work?

Car leasing is essentially a long term hire of a vehicle. The benefit of car leasing over car hire is mainly the monthly payments being much lower as well as a much more stable agreement.

Hippo Leasing specialise in cheap car leasing deals for used or ex demo vehicles. The reason for this is to bring quality vehicles to customers at more affordable prices.

Typically car leasing has a requirement for deposits which can be out of the reach of a lot of customers. This is why we offer a range of different finance agreement types with small or no deposits. We also have over 2000 brand new lease deals available on our site.

What Are My Options When My Lease Ends?

1. Hand It Back – Contract Hire and PCP are the most popular leases that offer this option.

2. Upgrade – You can hand back your car and get a newer lease deal via a part exchange or starting a completely new deal.You can usually upgrade your car 3/4 of the way into your existing deal without any additional fees.

3. Buy The Car – If you’re happy with your current lease car you can pay off the final balance (PCP, Lease Purchase/Contract Purchase Applicable) and own the vehicle. With contract hire this isn’t an outlined option.
