Short, Simple, Clear Car Leasing


When you lease a brand new car from Clear Car Leasing, one of the decisions you’ll have to make after deciding which car to lease and for how long, is what mileage allowance you’ll need.

How many miles you travel on a monthly or annual basis will differ from person to person, therefore when you lease a car you’ll be asked what mileage allowance is required to suit your individual usage.

Generally, the average lessee opts for 10,000 miles per annum but if you know you’ll be doing more miles than this every year, you can choose a higher mileage allowance as part of your contract.

Exceeding your allocated mileage allowance could mean extra charges to pay at the end of your lease contract.

Of course, this will have an impact on the fixed monthly payment cost, so it’s worth careful consideration beforehand to ensure you don’t end up paying for more miles than you actually need, as no refund will be given at the end of your contract.

However, if you choose a mileage allowance and exceed this during your lease term, you will have to pay a small fixed charge for every mile over your allocated mileage allowance you travel – these costs will be explained to you in full detail as part of your quote.

Any excess mileage charges will be due at the end of your contract once the car has been inspected and collected for return.

To avoid having to pay charges when your contract comes to an end, try and work out in advance exactly how many miles you tend to cover in a year and choose a mileage allowance that fits in with this figure.
