How does car leasing work?

At Flexed, we specialise in short-term car leasing, but you might be asking yourself how it actually works.


What’s the difference between short and long-term leasing?

Short-term car leasing is similar to long-term car leasing, but without the long-term commitment. Our car lease lengths range from a minimum of 28 days, all the way through to a lease lasting a year.

With our short-term car leasing service, cars are available on a month-by-month basis. A 28-day lease is the most substantial commitment you need to make.

How flexible is the lease duration?

If you lease a car for 6 months, but decide afterwards that you only need the car for 3 months, our short-term car leasing accommodates this.

We make it easy for you to change the length of your lease. You’re not committed to anything further than the minimum of 28 days.

How is the cost of the lease decided?

The price of the lease depends on a few things:

  • The model of car you wish to lease
  • The length of the lease
  • The mileage allowance you choose

Our mileage allowances are displayed in terms of annual mileage (pro-rata-daily) and effectively mean that the amount you pay up front depends on the number of miles you want to travel each month.

With Flexed, we include 24-hour emergency assistance, maintenance, road tax and vehicle recovery within the price of the lease too. These are all available as long as you have remained within the mileage allowance that you have paid for.

Is a short-term lease right for me?

In summary, short-term car leases are designed for instances in which you may need a car in the short-term, but may not be entirely sure how long for.

The fact that you only need to commit to 28 days means that you can lease the car for as long as you need after that initial period, knowing that you can close the lease at any time and return the car.

Short-term car leasing lets you avoid the long-term tie-ins that are often included as part of car rentals.
