Short, Simple, Clear Car Leasing


There seems to be scary stories associated with car leasing concerning huge excess mileage charges when a lease contract comes to an end.

Of course, there will be charges to pay if you do exceed your agreed mileage allowance but the costs will be explained within your lease contract, so there’ll be no hidden surprises if at the end of your contract you’ve gone over your agreed allowance.

To avoid excess mileage charges it’s really important that you try and provide an accurate figure based on what you believe you’ll cover annually.

Excess Mileage Charges Explained


Your monthly payments will reflect the number of miles you think you will cover during your lease term based on an annual figure such as 10,000 miles per annum, which over a 36 month lease period would be a 30,000 mileage allowance.

Obviously, the more miles you choose the more you’ll pay as part of your contract and remember, no refund is offered if you choose a mileage allowance and don’t use them – all this means is that you’re paying for miles you don’t need, that’s why it’s important that you try and give an accurate figure from the start.

If you go over your agreed mileage allowance you will have to pay a small fixed charge for every mile over your contract that you’ve travelled.

You can during your lease contract change your mileage allowance if you recognise that you’re initial annual figure is going to be either too low or too high. Your monthly payments will be updated to show the changes made to your mileage allowance and will either go up or down as a result. Doing this could prevent you from having to pay excess charges at the end of your contract or paying out too much in the long run for unwanted miles.
