Personal Contract Plan (PCP)

Personal Contract Plan (PCP) is a finance product which allows for a lower monthly payment when compared to a Hire Purchase agreement of the same length and deposit. With PCP you can have a flexible finance plan to suit your own circumstances. A portion of the car’s value is deferred until the end of the agreement, usually in month 37. This amount is the minimum value that your car is guaranteed to be worth at the end of the agreement, also known as ‘Guaranteed Minimum Future Value’ (GMFV) or your ‘optional final payment’.

With a Guaranteed Minimum Future Value (GMFV), there is no need to worry about the resale value of the vehicle, depreciation, or the NCT costs associated with owning a car for a longer period of time.

How PCP works

How Hire Purchase works:

Your chosen deposit (typically between 10% to 35% of the value of the car) is deducted from the price of the car.

Monthly Payments:

They are calculated by deducting the deposit and optional final payment from the price of the car. The balance, plus any interest and fees is then split into equal monthly payments depending on the length of your agreement.

Optional Final Payment:

Also deducted from the price of the car and is due at the end of your agreement. It is the anticipated future value of your car assuming its mileage and condition is as agreed when you signed your agreement.

What happens at the end of my PCP agreement?

You have three options at the end of your agreement:

Option 1: Get a new car.

Your chance to drive another new car. You’ll have the option to part exchange (trade in) your car at any dealership of your choice or sell it privately. Once you’ve fully settled your agreement (including the optional final payment) any money left can be used as deposit for your new car if you so choose.

Option 2: Hand Back your car.

You can return the car to your original motor dealer on or before the final payment is due. Assuming all monthly payments have been made, you’ll have nothing further to pay, providing the car is in good condition and the agreed kilometre band hasn’t been exceeded.

Option 3: Keep your car.

If you decide to keep the car, assuming all monthly payments have been made, you just need to pay the optional final payment on or before the due date and the car is yours to keep.

Hire Purchase

Hire Purchase is a traditional finance product where the interest rate is fixed throughout the agreement. Once you find your next car, simply decide how much deposit you would like to pay. We then spread the remaining cost of the car with fixed monthly payments over a term of your choice (2-5 years). Once the final payment is made, you then own the car.
