What is a car subscription and how is it different from a lease?

What is a car subscription?

Car and vehicle subscriptions are often viewed as being the next big thing - just like a phone or a Netflix contract, the subscription service is paid monthly or at regular intervals.

Think about the service as the equivalent to pay-as-you go but for cars, perfect for those who like to switch their vehicles up or employers looking for a business lease. The term often used to describe this is flexible lease or short-term rental.

Why choose a vehicle subscription service?

The purchase of your car is probably one of the biggest investments after your mortgage and other bills. Buying a vehicle can restrict and impact your household budgets, not to mention factoring in the fees associated with servicing, maintenance, and tyres.

Car subscription services usually provide a bundle of things including:

  • Manufacturer’s warranty
  • Breakdown cover
  • Road tax and maintenance

Combining all these costs into one monthly payment can help you to plan your outgoings and save money elsewhere. Using a vehicle subscription service also allows you to pick from an automobile library, which offers different models so you can find the right vehicle to suit your needs.

So, if you’d like the excitement of having a new car delivered every 3 to 18 months, vehicle subscription services and leasing is the way to go! At the end of your contract, you can decide if you would like to change to a new vehicle, hand the vehicle back or extend your contract!
