What is a Car Subscription?

Sitting between Lease Contracts and Daily Rental Hire, Car Subscriptions are an alternative, more flexible form of obtaining a car. These contracts tend to be a on a 28 day or month-by-month basis and will only stop when you decide to cancel or swap your vehicle.

Car Subscription providers will also usually include the following with every new contract;

  • Manufacturer’s Warranty,
  • Breakdown Cover (with Roadside Assist),
  • Road Tax, Maintenance
  • Full Comprehensive Motor Insurance Cover

Aside from having the benefit of bundling all your payments into one, you’ll also usually have access to a ‘vehicle library’ from which you can pick and choose different models to swap into. Just like swapping between films or albums on your favourite streaming service!

What cars can I get with a flexible car subscription?

Many Car Subscription providers source their vehicles from new and more often than not, your car will be under 6 months or 12 months old (depending on the model). Having such a new car means that you’ll get to benefit from a full manufacturer’s warranty if anything goes amiss with your vehicle during your contract.

At Flexed, we presently have the following manufacturers available for subscription:

Aside from cars, we also have a number of commercial vehicles available on subscription too! View them all here.

How does insurance work with car subscriptions?

We can arrange flexible short-term insurance for your Flexed (a trading name of Autohorn Fleet Services Ltd) vehicle through McClarrons insurance brokers. It acts as an optional ‘bolt-on’ for customers who decide opt for an all-inclusive rental.

The insurance cover is linked directly with your account and will start at 00:00hrs from the day you pick up your vehicle up until 23:59hrs, the day your contract ends. The policy will automatically renew for each 28 day period until you decide to cancel.

You are also able to insure up to a maximum of two named drivers with your policy.

Is this insurance policy the same as any normal policy?

No, it’s a unique policy which runs for the exact period that your Flexed vehicle leasing contract runs for. It is issued for an initial 30-day period and automatically renews every 30 days.

Is the policy fully comprehensive?

Yes, it is. This means you have coverage for you and your vehicle as well as other people.

Whose name is the insurance policy issued in?

The policy is issued in the name of the person leasing the Flexed vehicle.

Can I add an additional driver?

Yes. You can have up to 2 named drivers in addition to yourself. Please note that an additional premium may be charged per additional driver.

Can I change my vehicle under the policy?

Certainly. You can change to another Flexed vehicle at any time, subject to any applicable adjustments to the premium. You will not be charged a fee for making the change.

Can the policy cover vehicles be supplied by someone other than Flexed?

No, this policy is designed specifically for Flexed vehicles.

Do I earn a No Claims Bonus?

No, because this is a short-term insurance policy. You can, however, keep a No Claims Discount that you have earned under a previous policy to use later.

Can I cancel the policy?

Yes, you can cancel at any time. However, you will not receive a refund of premium for the unexpired proportion of the current 30-day period. If you return your Flexed vehicle after the date that you cancel the policy, you will need to provide evidence to Flexed that you have arranged alternative comprehensive insurance cover.

How do I report a claim or accident?

Please refer to the ‘How to Claim’ section of your insurance policy wording and contact customer.service@autohorn.co.uk to report your vehicle.
