How does personal car leasing work?

Personal Leasing is an affordable way to own a brand-new car. Simply pop down a deposit, known as an initial payment, then pay a fixed monthly sum for the rest of the term.

What makes a lease deal one of the best around?

The best car lease deals make the seemingly unattainable, attainable. For it to be one of the most attractive deals out there, you're looking for a low initial payment followed by similarly low monthly payments. Cars that have a high manufacturer RRP but are affordable to lease can also be considered excellent deals.

Car manufacturer finance companies manage to provide these great offers by effectively shielding you from having to deal with the depreciation that you are faced with when you buy a new car outright.
