There are several options in financing the purchase of a car and you should consider which is the most appropriate in your circumstances, if you choose not to buy it outright.
  • From your bank, building society or finance company.
  • Most car dealerships will have their own finance deals.
  • Other organisations such as the AA and the RAC also provide finance deals, which can be combined with their technical and mechanical checks on the car.
  • From car dealership. It involves making a deposit, followed by a number of monthly payments. The car is legally yours only after all the payments are made.
  • Involves monthly payments, under which you are in effect hiring the car for a fixed period.
  • At the end of the term, you have the option to- return the car with no further payments

    – enter into a new deal for a new (or second hand) car

    – make a final “balloon” payment to buy the car

     

  • Leasing deals can sometimes include maintenance and breakdown cover in the monthly lease payment.
