Why Lease With Auto Trader Leasing

Auto Trader is the UK’s biggest digital automotive marketplace and a brand trusted by millions for decades. You know you’re in safe hands leasing from us. Leasing with Auto Trader gives you the following benefits: Drive a brand-new car Every Auto Trader lease deal is for a brand-new, factory fresh car. Huge range of cars available now We have a wide selection of new cars of all shapes and sizes, and to suit all budgets – many of them available to take delivery of right away. From sub-£200 city cars right up to luxury SUVs and sports cars, you’ll easily find the right model for you. Flexible lease deals Our leasing deals are flexible, allowing you to tailor your monthly costs. You can choose how much you’d like to pay upfront (between one- and 12 times the monthly lease), how many miles you’ll do per year, how long you want to keep the car for, and whether you want to include maintenance. No admin fees Unlike a lot of lease providers, we won’t charge you any admin fees to arrange your lease. The initial price and the monthly payment you agree are the only costs you’ll pay upfront. Free delivery to your door There’s no need to worry about collecting your brand-new vehicle yourself - we’ll take care of everything. As soon as it’s ready, we’ll arrange a delivery date and time that suits you, and deliver it to your home address for free. (Delivery to mainland UK, excluding Northern Ireland.) Free 30-day return guarantee If you’re not happy with your new car for whatever reason, you can return your lease car up to 30 days after it’s been delivered and get your money back. We’ll even collect it from you, for free. (You can only return your lease vehicle for free if it has no damage, and has been driven less than 50 miles.) Road tax is included Your lease contract includes VED (road tax) in the price, and we’ll organise everything for you, including renewals. It means you’ll never have to deal with the DVLA to remember to renew your tax. Roadside assistance is included A peace-of-mind benefit is free roadside assistance, which comes from the car manufacturer. It’ll differ slightly from car-to-car, but ultimately it means that should anything go wrong with your new car – unlikely, but possible – you won’t be left stranded.

What is leasing?

Car leasing is a form of long-term car rental. When leasing a car, you make regular monthly payments for a fixed length of time. There’s an upfront ‘initial payment’, which you can make bigger or smaller to suit your needs, and you can decide whether you want to include maintenance in your payments too. That covers things like servicing and replacement tyres. Once the term of the lease has ended, you return the car to the leasing company. It's also a great way of trying out electric car ownership, giving you the option of running one for a set amount of time without worrying about depreciation. For much more on exactly how leasing works we have a full guide for you here. For all the terms and conditions of an Auto Trader lease, see here.
