Who Can Short Term Car Leasing Be Right For?

There are certain scenarios where a one year lease deal might be beneficial, including when:

  • You’ve ordered a different car but there are really long waiting times, so you need a car to tide you over until it arrives
  • You suspect your personal circumstances might change in the next year so you don’t want to commit to a multi-year contract
  • You’ve just started a new job and want to ensure that you don’t over commit just in case the new role isn’t right for you 
  • You know that you’ll be moving away from the UK in less than two years time
  • You want to try out a different type of vehicle in the short term, such as an electric car lease deal, without signing a multi year agreement
  • You run a business that needs a vehicle for a year only
  • Either you or your staff are on probation and want a short term solution
  • You’re on a temporary contract, such as some NHS staff

Your Short Term Car Leasing FAQs Answered

How Long is a Short Term Car Lease?

With Xcite Car Leasing, a short term lease is a deal that lasts for 12 months, or one year. This period can offer you much needed flexibility, with no long term commitment. Contact our team today to find out how one of our short term car lease deals can benefit you.  

How Can a Short Term Lease Deal Benefit a Business?

If you’re in need of a company vehicle as either a business owner or an employee, a 12 month lease deal can have a range of advantages. For example, if you or your staff have a probationary period and a multi-year leasing contract doesn’t make sense, a short term lease could be the ideal solution. The same is true for if you have a temporary employment contract and are not sure what the future might bring. 

What Happens at the End of the Short Term Lease Agreement?

As your short term leasing deal is coming to an end, we’ll contact you with a range of options to consider. If you really love the car and want to keep it for longer, you may have the option of extending your current lease. There may also be the option to purchase the vehicle too if that’s what you’d prefer. If you just want to hand the car back hassle-free, you can arrange collection with us at the end of the contract, on a day that suits you.  

Is a Short Term Car Lease Deal Right For Me?

This will depend on your personal circumstances, what you need out of your next vehicle and how long you need it for. If you only need a car for one year and want to remain as flexible as possible for the future, then a short term lease deal could be perfect. 

However, if you would prefer to secure a longer term deal for added peace of mind, you can browse through our best lease deals to find options with contracts of between 24 and 48 months. 

My Chosen Deal Says POA: What Does This Mean?

If your deal says ‘POA’, this means ‘Price On Application’. This essentially means that we need to do a few more calculations to get the right price for the deal in question. These calculations will be done once you make an enquiry, which can be done via the deals page itself or by speaking to the team on 0330 221 0000
