Personal contract plans (PCP) tend to have a lower monthly payment than HP, even with a maximum term of 49 months, with a large balloon payment at the end of the agreement.
You have 3 options at the end:
PCP is ideal if you change your car often and most people choose a term that’s equal to how long they plan on keeping the car.
Hire purchase is a method of paying for your car over set monthly payments on a fixed term with a fixed rate of interest.The term can range from 12 to 60 months depending on your circumstances and subject to status you can borrow anything from £1,000 to the full value of the car. Once the final payment has been made you own the car outright.
Lease purchase is a form of long term rental which is perfect for those who know they will be looking to move on to another car once the agreement period is over.
Working in a similar way to Personal Contract Purchase (PCP), the main difference is that ownership of the vehicle would not be assumed at the end of the agreement period and instead the car would be handed back without any further obligation.
However another vehicle could then be chosen under the same scheme (subject to credit checks). This enables maximum flexibility with your choice of vehicle and the benefit of driving a brand new car every few years.
