What are the pros and cons of leasing vs buying?
Not only does leasing offer great flexibility and peace of mind, you won't be left with a vehicle facing negative equity when your contract is up. What's more, due to the financial flexibility, leasing often means you can drive a newer or higher spec car than you would have been able to afford if paying outright..
If you settle the contract early, you will be required to pay a termination fee.
If you exceed your agreed annual mileage allowance, you will be required to pay an excess-mileage fee.
At the end of your contract, you will be required to pay for any damage to the vehicle, with the exception of "fair wear-and-tear".
