If you're thinking of buying a Nissan, we've a range of flexible and cost effective finance packages to meet your needs. Our friendly finance experts will make everything easy to understand and will work out a solution that fits with your individual financial circumstances.
What is Personal Contract Purchase (PCP)?
With PCP you can choose the perfect vehicle for you, as well a deposit and the length of the agreement. And, you can even decide upon the maximum mileage. Once the period is over, you will then have the option to purchase the car outright for an agreed amount, which is known as the Guaranteed Minimum Future Value, or just GMFV. Or, if you don’t want to buy the car outright, you can always just return it to the lender (within agreed fair wear and tear limits) with absolutely no further obligation.
Benefits of PCP
- Drive a brand new Nissan more often
- Flexible deposits
- More flexible repayment options
- Compared to a HP agreement with the same term, the repayment rate is usually lower
- Fixed rates
- Assurance of GMFV means you are protected against depreciation of used cars prices
- Come the end of the agreement, you have the option to renew, return, or own the vehicle
Once the agreement is up, you can then choose from one of these three options:
Option 1 - Renew
If you decide to renew, then you can drive away in a brand new Nissan. And, you can use any excess value over the GMFV as a deposit on your new vehicle.
Option 2 - Return
So long as the vehicle is in a good condition and doesn’t exceed the agreed upon fair wear and tear limits and the agreed mileage, you have nothing more to pay and can simply return the vehicle.
Option 3 - Retain
You can also choose to retain your vehicle. Pay the GMFV and you own it outright!
What is Hire Purchase?
Hire Purchase is the traditional package. Using this you can take the total cost of a vehicle of your choosing, deduct the deposit amount and choose the length of the agreement. Interest will then be added and the monthly installments will be calculated. Assuming you have met all of your payments, once the agreement has ended, the vehicle is yours outright.
Benefits of HP
- Deposits are flexible
- Flexible repayment terms from 12 to 60 months
- Rates are fixed
- Once the agreement is over, the vehicle is yours
What is Personal Contract Hire?
