12 Month Short Term Forum & Reviews
Hi, I'm a bit confused as on your Web site I click on to 12 month lease and it's showing cars for lease under £100. So why cannot I have a car on a 12 month short lease for under £100?
The prices say from and it also says if you do not have excellent credit history then the minimum hire / lease period is 2 years. Which means the contract is for 4 years and the minimum you have to keep the car is 2 years of the 4 years. is this more clear?
So after 24 months if I am not happy I can just cancel the contract, will that include a cancellation fee?
I'm afraid I cannot advise you on this via messaging. However, you will be contacted by one of our advisors who can go through this with you when the offices are fully open again. As I understand it, if you are not in any negative equity then you will not need to pay anything to return the car. However, if you are in negative equity then you will need to pay the difference to the finance partner before you can just walk away. Also, if I was you I would make sure I read the terms of the contract before signing and speak to the advisor to clarify this. If you need any more info in the meantime so contact me too
OK, got it, when can I expect an adviser to get in touch?
It is a bank holiday today and all businesses are closed, specially companies that deal with car leasing. It will be tomorrow when the offices are fully open again. By the way did you receive a confirmation email from our systems?
Yes, I did received the confirmation email, many thanks.

Hello, can you help, I am currently looking for a 12 month car lease deal?
Have you applied?
Yes I have, but I want to speak to someone.
I see you have applied, however, the 12 month offers are specific brand new cars and you must have excellent credit history. Prices start at £280 a month (personal hire) with require a significant up front deposit.
But your website says from £100 a month?
To achieve these low prices that we offer you must lease the car for approx 3 to 4 years. or pay a bit more and lease for 2 years.
I have found cheaper than £280 a month.
You might have but not for a 12 month lease, surely? The car you picked was at £94 a month but it is a use car and you must keep it for at least 2 years.
I thought prices started at £280?
If you can keep the car for 2 years minimum then the prices can be for a slightly used car for approx £100 to £150 a month
If you read the offers the Peugeot 207 you picked is a used car at £94.90 a month and you must keep it for at least 2 years minimum.
That is a good deal, but I am looking for 12 months only.
Why do you want only 12 months?
Because I am moving to Australia in 12 month time.
Sorry I cannot help you then specially if you are moving to another country. I hope you find what you were looking for but I do not think you will find a brand new car for 12 months under £280 a month. Maybe you can hire a car instead as in
rent a car?
How much do they work out ?
You need to follow the link I provided you and pick a suitable partners from our sister website called HireinUK.
Why can I not have one of your used cars for just 12 months or 1 year?
I'm afraid the used cars
normally are offered
for 2 years minimum.
Sorry I do not make up the rules. However, you still need to speak to your advisor, if they can come up with a nearly new car for just 12 months at a good price then that would be brilliant. Please wait for their reply via email and or txt.
OK I will visit your sister website.
Out of curiosity, our systems say that your application got
cancelled by our partners who handle the credit side of the
car lease. Did you cancel or did they cancel? Did you speak to someone?
cancelled because they said to me that the minimum I can lease a used car was 2
The deal you picked did state that it was for a 2, 3, 4, or 5 year lease. Anyhow, yes you will be deleted by this evening and no one will contacted you ever again. Not unless you contact us again.
your website is shockingly bad! Rather confusing and misleading with no contact number to speak to somebody direct.
Are you using a mobile phone or a pc?
I selected that deal for somebody to contact me back as you had no number to call.
I was using a pc, switched to my phone?
Our contact details are on the about page and on the contact us page and our direct telephone number is on the email we sent you. Did you not receive our email?
Yes I did received that
email, but before I tried to call yourselves I received a call from your partners, saying you don't offer 12 month lease deals, minimum of 2 years. I'm a little confused tbh
To make it clear, We do offer 12 month car leasing
but for brand new cars and the prices are in the region of £280 a month
and more. If you want to pay less then you must keep the car for at least
will take your advice and visit your sister website and probably will hire a car
instead as I only need it for a few months at a time.
we cleared this up.
