Car leasing, or personal contract hire (PCH), is best thought of as a long-term rental of a car.

When you lease a car, you’ll have it for a set period of time (usually 24-48 months). When that set period ends, you give the car back. You never own the car, and there’s no option to buy it at the end of the deal like there is with a personal contract purchase (PCP) deal.

That’s the basic premise, but there are a few important things to understand about how leasing works. Keep reading to find out.

Your typical leasing deal consists of an initial payment (deposit) followed by a series of fixed monthly payments for the length of the deal you agreed to. The initial payment is usually a larger sum than the monthly rate, but you’ll find lease deals that don’t require one at all (take a look at our no-deposit lease deals). Generally speaking, the larger the initial deposit you put down, the lower your monthly payments will be.

The cost of your lease is based on the difference between the value of the car when new and its expected value at the conclusion of the agreement. There’s no large balloon payment at the end of the deal like with PCP. You simply pay your last month and hand the keys back at the end of the deal. It’s up to you what you do after that – you can get another lease or purchase deal, or walk away entirely.

Lease deals come with limits and conditions as part of the contract. Your typical lease deal comes with an annual mileage limit and the expectation you’ll keep the car in good condition, permitting for fair wear and tear.

Is leasing worth it? The question of leasing vs buying really depends on what you want from your next car.

Why lease a car? Leasing typically offers you lower upfront and monthly costs than buying, as well as greater flexibility. In simple terms, that means you can get more car for your money, and keep upgrading the car you’re driving every few years. It’s the most accessible way to drive a brand-new car – or get a cheap deal on driving a used one – on a simple, fixed-cost monthly plan. Plus, because you don’t own the car, you don’t need to worry about things like resale and depreciation down the line.

That doesn’t mean leasing is always the best move, however. If you want ownership of a vehicle and plan on keeping it for a long time, buying typically presents better value. You’ll be able to recoup some resale value when you want to get rid of the car, and you won’t have any contractual obligations as you do with leasing (things like mileage limits and vehicle condition expectations).

The good news is we’re transparent with our advice. If you speak to one of our expert account managers about buying vs leasing, we’ll be honest about what the right deal for you is. In fact, we might even be able to point you in the direction of a great purchase (PCP or HP) deal if we think that’s your best move.

The cost of your lease, both in terms of total cost and how that cost is spread, depends on various factors:

  • The car you choose: this has the biggest impact on the cost of your lease. You can lease anything from a budget city car to a luxury SUV or borderline supercar. Naturally, the differing value of the vehicles available means the spread of potential lease costs in the market is massive.
  • New vs used: leasing a used car is a great way to get a really cheap deal. Of course, you’ll pay more to lease a new vehicle.
  • Initial rental: the bigger the initial payment you put down against your lease, the lower your monthly payments will be. This is because you’ll have paid off more of the total lease cost sooner. You can often choose how to split payment between deposit and monthly rate, including opting for a no-deposit lease deal, paying your entire lease via monthly instalments instead.
  • Length of term: the length of your lease contract will define how the cost is spread. So, the longer your lease deal, the more spread out your total lease cost will be, and therefore the lower your monthly repayments.

If you’ve exceeded the annual mileage you agreed to in your contract or you’ve damaged the car beyond fair wear and tear guidelines, you’ll have excess charges to pay.

In terms of excess mileage, you’ll pay a pre-agreed pence-per-mile rate that’s based on the economy of the vehicle. Damage changes will depend on the nature and extent of the damage.

If you’re leasing a brand-new car, you probably won’t need to MOT it as new cars don’t require an MOT test for the first three years. If you’re leasing used, you’ll be responsible for getting the car tested if it’s older than three years old.

As for repairs, it’s your responsibility to ensure the car is taken care of and serviced regularly, so you’ll be liable for any faults or damage along the way.

If you want some additional security on your lease, take a look at Hippo Protect. It’s our maintenance package that can be added to your deal as an optional extra and will take care of the essentials for you.

Yes! We’re bad credit specialists and big believers in the idea that everyone should be able to get a great lease deal on a car they love. We work with customers from all credit backgrounds and use a diverse panel of lenders to ensure we deliver the best possible prices for all.

You can – we offer leases on both new and used vehicles. Leasing used is a great way to save money and get an even cheaper deal on your next car. And don’t worry, you can lease a used car from us with absolute confidence.

All of our used options are approved used and covered by our used car promise – that means they’ve gone through and passed our 130-point inspection, and are protected by a three-month warranty and 14-day money-back guarantee (check our terms and conditions for more info on our warranty and money-back guarantee).

Insurance isn’t included with our lease deals. If you get a lease with us, you’ll need to sort out your insurance separately as you would with any other vehicle. All lease cars must be covered by a fully comprehensive policy.

Make sure to take into account the cost of an insurance policy against the vehicle you’re looking to lease before you apply for it.

Lease a new car with us and you’ll get road tax, breakdown cover and manufacturer warranty included as standard, as well as free delivery nationwide. You can also get maintenance cover via Hippo Protect as part of your deal as an optional extra.

You won’t get any of the above included with a used lease deal, but all of our approved used cars are backed by our used car promise which includes a 130-point inspection, a three-month warranty and our 14-day money-back guarantee (check our terms and conditions for more info on our warranty and money-back guarantee).

You can, but because you don’t own the vehicle, you’ll need to speak to the finance company providing the lease to get permission as it’s the registered owner of the vehicle.

That’s not us, by the way. We’re a credit broker, not a lender, so the lease is financed by a separate company. We can put you in touch with them if you want to make a plate change.
