What is the difference between fixed and flexible short-term contracts?

Contents of FAQ

There are generally two types of contracts available:

Short-Term Fixed Contracts

These are generally for vehicles on a contract length of between 6-months and 18-month contracts. The contracts are for set periods and have penalty charges should you wish to early terminate these agreements.

They can also not be extended or reduced in length and are set by the funder and/or the vehicle supplier.

The mileage is usually capped at a maximum of 2,000 miles per calendar month and an excess mileage charge will apply should these be exceeded. Depending on the contract, you may also be obliged to purchase the vehicle if the excess mileage exceeds 10% of the contracted mileage allowance.

Cars are usually brand new or pre-registered and are offered by our funders, manufacturers and/or suppliers, delivery times can vary and usually take longer than flexible contracts.

Maintenance is optional on all fixed-length short-term car leases.
